I have been to a number of chiropractors over the years and I have to say that Dr. Smaldone is the best one I have seen. Due to my poor posture while working on the computer all day, along with the arches in my feet not being up to par, my lower back goes out from time to time and is very painful. Not only does Dr. Smaldone make that pain go away, but by going on a maintenance schedule basis, that very rarely happens anymore. I would highly recommend him to anyone who suffers any type of back or neck pain (and have on a number of occasions). Also, if you are considering any type of surgical procedure, I would strongly recommend seeing him first.
First, I must admit that I am honestly skeptical of most/all doctors or chiropractors. It’s a childhood fear, so I’m a nervous nelly and I get super anxious about having to go. In particular, I hate when Chiropractors crack your neck. It gives me the heeby-jeebies. Once I found Smaldone Chiropractic (Dr. Dave), I was beyond relieved. If I find a good doctor that I’m comfortable with, I am loyal to them until they retire. I have visited chiropractors from NY to LA, and Dr. Dave adjusts you in a way that doesn’t strain your muscles or bones. Every adjustment happens quickly and easily. He can even adjust my neck WITHOUT cracking it! Yay! Cannot tell you how happy I was about that. He’s knowledgeable about all of the latest chiropractic trends, and he’s very approachable and comforting. For someone who needs a chiropractor with a great bedside manner (who will hold your hand through the scary stuff), this is definitely the guy to go see!
I have birth defects–spina bifida and a tethered spinal cord. Dr. Dave has given me tremendous help not only with the spine, but also abolishing painful scar tissue from my many surgeries. I can’t recommend him highly enough. He even helped me through a bad vertigo attack!
He’s amazing. Been going to him for a couple of months now. Always trying to help you get to the point of no pain.
On and off for years, since childhood, I have experienced sporadic episodes of extreme pain to my sternum (mostly likely due to poor posture caused by low self-esteem). Suffering a particular bout while at work recently, I desperately called his Kingston office only because it was in the neighborhood. What a blessing! Over the course of 45 years, I have been receiving chiropractic treatments from dozen of practitioners, and Dr. Smaldone stands out as one of the best. In a couple of treatments, not only did he relieve my immediate pain, but I feel completely healed from this age-old malady. While therapy and yoga helped correct my posture, Dr. Dave’s treatments got to the source. I am very grateful for his gifts and talents.
I had been going to to another chiropractor for years to no avail. In three visits Dr. Dave got me pain free. Thank you!
After suffering a herniated disk from a work injury and practically crawling into office, within a few visits Dr. Dave has me feeling much better. I was a bit skeptical at first but after visiting him for the first time he made me feel at ease and gave me some much needed relief! His office staff is friendly as well.
Very timely office and personable staff. Welcoming environment and quality care! I’m feeling much better after just two visits. 🙂
Before seeing Dr. Dave I had seen a handful of other chiropractors for my severe migraines and neck pain with no improvement. I was on numerous medications and always being sent to neurologists and getting x-rays and MRI’s done. After just a few visits with Dr. Dave my migraines went away and I no longer needed to be on medication. No more neurologist visits and no more unneeded radiation. Dr. Dave takes his time to listen to my problems and shows tremendous care for my health.
I have seen a chiropractor for years and have always been cautious with whom I see. Dr. Dave is kind and gentle, and his staff polite. His teqnique is different from chiropractors I have gone to in the past. It’s like getting a mini-massage and then having things fall back into place. For those afraid to see a chiropractor because of the general “abrupt adjustment” most chiropractors are known for, you should definately give him and his teqnique a try!
Great to have range of motion back in my neck…Thank-you Dr Dave!
At a time when i was in the most pain, Dr Smaldone not only got me back on my feet quick but helped me get motivated to participate in my own care. With his adjustments, guidance, and exercises I’ve been free from my chronic back problems for about 2 years.
I came to his new paltz office in 2007 , with severe migraines. I had one for 5 days and NOTHING was working, including meds I was prescribed. I showed up in tears, he took me in, adjusted me…and my migraine was gone. He worked with my college budget and seen me twice a week for quite awhile, then down to once week, to once a month. Here, 2014 almost 2015…haven’t had a migraine since. I have referred everyone I know to him because of how wonderful he is. I have a family now and I now send my hubby to him, who thoroughly enjoys what an excellent job he does. I once tried a chiropractor through my insurance and needless to say, I came out worse then I started. Not all chiropractors work the same. Dr.Smaldone is efficient, gentle and effective…couldn’t ask for more!!! Anyone contemplating a chiropractor, should definitely see him!!! They will not be disappointed! Chiropractic works into adjusting our body back to homeostasis and fixing the root of the problems, as oppose to common western medicine that just masks it. Rather be adjusted any day of the week, then be on Rx drugs. Keep up the great work Dr. Smaldone!!!
Smaldone Chiropractic is amazing! I had my first visit yesterday for a shoulder injury. I left virtually pain free. Highly recommended!
Need a miracle? Dr. Smaldone is the closest you’ll get to one on Earth!!
I recently had a Dr. Dave treatment and adjustment and through the experience, rediscovered the value of being “re-aligned” at the structural level. i I haven’t had an adjustment for years and I believe i have become somewhat immune to the benefits of being aligned. It was not until after the treatment I realized how out of alignment i was as i discovered a range of motion i haven’t experienced in a long time. As an acupuncturist who also does body work thru the palpation and informed touch I quickly recognized the skills Dr. Dave brings to his practice. What I appreciated the most was his method of preparing my body for the adjustment thru moist heat and electrical stimulation all in preparation for the smooth adjustment. I highly recommend Dr. Dave as his skills are exceptional.
Dr. Smaldone Chiropractic is excellent! I have been a customer for approximately one year now. I began seeing him off of recommendation. I occasionally had some lower back pain from doing regular work around the house. Other misc pains here and there. So i decided to see what the practice was about. Since then I have had relief of soo many different day to day issues. Such as sinus relief during allergy season, back aches, head aches, etc. I highly recommend anyone to go see Dr. Smaldone to simply discuss all the benefits of seeing a chiropractor!
I had a car accident recently and was not going to go to the doctor. After about 4 days of still being sore I went to see Dr. Smaldone. With each visit I felt much better. I only had to see Dr. Smaldone a few times before I was no longer hurting. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Smaldone to any friends or family. Thanks so much for making me feel great again!
Dr. Smaldone stands out from from the many chiropractors that I have had occasion to visit in that he was the first to accurately diagnose a postural issue which was the significant causative factor of my chronic neck and upper back pain. His multifaceted treatment approach included not only adjustments but home based traction aids and a graduated conditioning and strengthening series of exercises that all worked in concert to dramatically improve my spinal health. He promised neither magical cures nor miraculous turning back of my biological clock. He did say that he could help arrest my degenerative condition and likely foresee an improvement in my discomfort level, provided that I do my part. And that is exactly how it went. Within a few short months I was virtually pain free for the first time in nearly a decade. I could not recommend Smaldone Chiropractic more highly.
I highly recommend Dr. Smaldone. I went in for an adjustment and to discuss some lower back pain and when I walked out I felt great. He really knows what he’s doing and the office staff is very friendly! I’m really looking forward to my follow up visits!
