Dr. Charles Nicolai
Your New York Chiropractor
If you are reading this you are likely in pain. Very few people look up a Chiropractor when they are fit and healthy.
That was me after Thanksgiving. I was in absolute agony. I had driven down to DC from NYC during the Thanksgiving holiday and when I awoke in the middle of the night I could hardly move. My neck and shoulders were in agony. My Thanksgiving holiday was ruined because it was a huge effort to even get out of a chair.
I got back to NYC and searched for a Chiropractor. I live in the Financial District so wanted to see someone close by.
Yelp came to the rescue and got a Sunday appointment with Dr Nicolai.
I was not sure if I needed a chiropractor or strong medication to shift the pain.
A few days later I was totally sure. Dr Nicolai has magic powers, he made my pain disappear! Not only that but he gave me a workout plan. I was frustrated as I had been unable to run and exercise, yes the pain was this bad.
I have had several sessions with Dr Nicolai since as he is committed to ensuring I am in the best shape possible.
It can be daunting when you are new to town as I am, looking for good medical people, go see Dr Nicolai he is amazing!
Can't say enough about my experience with Dr. Nicolai. Thought my jogging days where over but he got me up 'running' in no time. Not only is he technically brilliant, Dr. Nicolai creates a warm, personal experience that is unmatched by any other healthcare practitioner I have come across. Definitely worth traveling to if you don't live or work in the Financial District. Your body will thank you.
I'm notoriously bad about seeing doctors. I go when I absolutely have to, and that's about once in a decade. Typical old school male stubbornness, I know. This time was a red alert though - I have a pinched nerve in my neck that all but paralyzed me for two days. I hobbled in to the closest chiro I could find on Yelp, and Dr Nic was able to see me right away. He believes in a whole body, big picture approach, so we carefully dissected the last week or two of my life to figure out exactly what happened (and it wasn't easy). From there we patiently tinkered away at a very painful condition, and now, three days in, I am back to 80% function. I reckon three more days will see me better than new. And yes, I'm planning on monthly maintenance. Fan for life.
I've been seeing Dr. Nicolai for well over a year now. I started seeing him after having a knot it my neck and serious pain there for nearly a year before that. I was also experiencing piriformis symptoms.
And I still remember my first session with him. Not only did I immediately start improving, I'm not sure I'd ever visited a Dr. who really took the time to go through my health history and daily living habits like he did.
Dr. Nicolai ended up connecting an old hip injury that had resulted in surgery with my overall alignment problems, which were causing the problems with my neck and piriformis. After going through surgery and rehab, and then being uncomfortable for so long, it was such a relief to have someone understand what I was feeling and why. However, I think what amazed me the most was the various ways Dr. Nicolai treated me (chiropractic, accunpunture/pressure points, nutrition, etc.). Our regime was entirely unique to me.
I've gone from seeing Dr. Nicolai three days a week to once every two weeks now. And I've never felt better. But more importantly, I feel in control of how I feel. Aware of how what I do and eat have a huge affect on how I feel.
At this point, I don't think of Dr. Nicolai just as my Dr., but as a friend. I'm incredibly grateful to have him in my life and highly recommend seeking his medical/wellness advice.
I train in BJJ so I am no stranger to getting hurt. I have spent the past 5 years looking for someone to solve my back and rib problems. Most Chiropractic places just focused on the problems I was having not why did this happen to me and the best way not only how to fix it but to keep it from happing again. Thats what Dr. Nicolai did for me. This is a true wellness center. They have a full gym to help you strength your week zone to help keep you out of the dr office. Great place you have to try.
I injured my shoulder during training (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) and went to see another chiropractor. The session lasted about 10 minutes, he told me there wasn't anything serious wrong with it and it will heal just fine. Which it did, but it was still all stiff. Two weeks later, i fell onto the same spot again during training and needed to figure out a different solution. A friend suggested Dr. Nicolai, and within the first session he was able to pinpoint the problem area, working on it for almost 40 (!) minutes. Within a week, we were able to get the shoulder back to about 85%, much better than it ever was since the initial injury and definitely a lot more flexible. Dr. Nicolai is extremely knowledgeable in many areas concerning health and well-being and has been able to do fantastic work on my injury, as well as give great nutritional advice and therapeutic exercise instructions, allowing me to work on bettering my shoulder on my own. He is extremely well informed, and especially great if you're an athlete, as he can teach you valuable techniques on recovering your body quickly and efficiently. His practice also has an amazing massage therapist, which i've been taking advantage of on a weekly basis. If you're hard on your body and/or if you have a sports injury, Dr. Nicolai is an amazing and highly professional doctor to have in your corner. I can highly recommend him and his team!
I have been suffering from severe headaches from years of soccer and working out. When I became pregnant and couldn't take strong pain medicine anymore, I didn't know what to do. The headaches were affecting my life. A friend recommended Wall Street Chiropractic and Wellness so I gave them a call, despite not knowing much about Chiropractic work in general. I could not be more amazed and happy with the results! Dr. Nicolai is very professional and has made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. I was nervous going to a chiropractor in the first place, and being pregnant did not help those feelings. After 3 weeks my headaches are almost completely gone and I plan to continue receiving treatment throughout and after my pregnancy, as a way to maintain my new pain free life!
As a 24 year old, I knew something was wrong when I started getting serious back pain and wrist pain from my work (8 hours at a desk a day). I didn't know who to talk to or what needed to be done.
Luckily I happened upon Dr. NIcolai, who in less than 4 weeks of adjustments has turned around both my back and wrists. They are both on the track to being back in form soon. Not only that, but he's recommended the proper posture, work ergonomics, nutrition, stretches, and exercises. The adjustments have been fantastic, but what makes him exceptional is his knowledge of all parts of the body and how they work together.
Thanks again Dr Nic!.
I am a violinist and my back and neck are constantly out of alignment. When I threw out my back from overplaying and months without treatment, this adjustment saved me! I was able to call in and make an appointment on a saturday. Dr. Nicolai was an extremely knowledgeable and skilled chiropractor. My adjustment was efficient but very thorough. I finally have relief! I even left with some new stretches for the practice room. I won't be going anywhere else from now on.
Amazing!!Amazing!!! Dr. Charles cure my pain took away my back pain and my chest paint, he taught me some exercises to prevent the pain from coming back again and I am still feeling like a champion. I highly recommend The Wall Street Chiropractic & Wellness. A+++ Great work. Thank YOU!!!
