Promote Healing From Within Through Chiropractic Neurology

At New Beginnings Wellness in Smithtown, NY, we take an entirely different approach to chiropractic treatments. Whereas typical chiropractors treat pain by adjusting different parts of the skeletal system, we dig deeper into the cause of the issue by using a discipline known as chiropractic neurology combined with conventional chiropractic methods to diagnose and treat the root issues that are causing pain and discomfort.

What Is Chiropractic Neurology (Functional Neurology)?

Chiropractic neurology is a specialized field that focuses on the relationship between the nervous system and the spine. It involves the use of non-invasive techniques to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, headaches, vertigo, lower back pain, sciatica, middle back pain and neck pain.

By using chiropractic neurology to determine imbalances, we can often pinpoint the core reasons that certain parts of the body are more susceptible to pain than others. When integrating this specific technique with standard chiropractic adjustments, the patient not only experiences pain relief, but also has a pathway to keeping the pain away in the future by incorporating neurological exercises to restore the body’s natural ability to strengthen joints and feel better.

What Can A Chiropractic Neurologist Treat?

Chiropractic neurologist takes a brain-based approach to neurological disorders, offering new hope to those who have not found relief from conventional treatment.

Beyond standard joint pain and mobility issues, chiropractic neurology is also effective at treating the following:

Headaches and migraines


Dizziness and Balance Disorders


Restless Leg Syndrome

Learning Disabilities


Traumatic Brain Injuries

I have had lower back pain for many years. It has been a wonderful experience every-time I have visited this office, for the last 10+ years. The entire staff is amazing!! The minute you walk into Dr. Chiappino’s office, you feel a sense of peacefulness and serenity. You get top notch service and there’s never a wait. They do an amazing job with scheduling their patients. Before your initial adjustment, you get a full, comprehensive exam. Dr. Keri gets a handle on what your issue is before she even adjusts you! That’s so important! Their office is spotless. They go to great measures to make sure they disinfect between patients. They address specific, individualized needs. I feel a sense of relief each time I leave there. Years ago, I went through a difficult time and suffered terrible anxiety. Dr. Chiappino recommended I try Brain Core Therapy, at her office and went through great lengths to make sure I could also afford it. Initially, I was hesitant, but it’s totally non-invasive, causes NO pain and it was very easy and fun to do. It was life changing. It completely cured my anxiety! She will recommend other health care providers, if needed. I had a problem with my ears and she referred me to an amazing ENT, in Port Jeff! She does whatever it takes to make you feel better. Now, THAT’S a great physician!! Dr. Chiappino REALLY cares about her patients and always gets to the root of the problem. She’s one of the most compassionate and knowledgeable doctors I have ever met!!!

New Beginnings is an oasis for healing. Dr. Keri and her staff are warm and welcoming. As a holistic practitioner myself, I have referred many people. Chiropractic adjustments are necessary for wellness. I’ve benefited from her neurological assistance with the brain core program. This practice is a must do in your healing toolbox!

Dr Keri is wonderful. She knows a lot about a broad range of healing tools and teaches you as she works. Her adjustments and other chiro techniques are the best and significantly help my pain and headaches. She’s also so sweet and actually listens. I usually get bad anxiety in medical settings, but I feel completely at ease in her office. It’s very clean and her staff are great too. I’m so glad I found her, I look forward to my appointments

I have been a long standing patient of Dr Chiappino for many years. As a Neuro Chiropractor she was able to incorporate all my needs not just the normal aches and pains. Dr Chiappino is easy to talk to and will listen to my concerns. Before she even assessing my needs she inquired about me and what i believe is going on, she is there to help and provide what i need not a come twice a week kind of chiropractic approach. She reevaluates and will tell me what her thoughts are and is willing to modify to my needs. Overall wellness is her goal and i appreciate that!

Dr. Chiappino has an amazing energy about her. I felt welcomed and comfortable from the minute I walked into her office. She actively listened to everything I shared and offered her brilliant wisdom throughout the consultation. I have a lot of chronic issues and my body is extremely sensitive to a lot of things, so I was a bit nervous but she made me feel so cared for and I left feeling so grateful and my lower back that was twisted up and filled with edema is now feeling SO. MUCH. BETTER. in one visit! Just in my initial consultation and treatment alone we were able to connect a lot of dots and she was able to help me. I’m really looking forward to working with her on my neurological issues going forward and am really grateful I was pointed in the direction of her practice.

Dr Chiappino and Dr Reynolds are true healers! Approximately 6 years ago I suffered from debilitating migraines and other neurological symptoms. After going for every possible medical test that came back normal and being prescribed medication, I had Dr Chiappino and Dr Reynolds exam me. Immediately they gave me multiple recommendations including food allergy testing and my recovery began right then! I am migraine free since with no medications! Their treatment is PRICELESS! I continue to see the doctors on an as needed basis for minor aches and pains. Thank you Dr Chiappino and Dr Reynolds for all that you do!
