Dr. Blatt is one of only a handful of Tonal Chiropractors in Manhattan, and is the only doctor in NYC focusing solely on Tonal Correction. He has been practicing here in NYC since 2010, and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University, in Atlanta, GA.
In addition to his formal Chiropractic education, Dr. Blatt has and continues to receive extensive training in several Tonal, Structural, and neurologically focused techniques, and taught clinical technique to other students and doctors for 2 years while still a graduate student.
Prior to opening AXIS Chiropractic in 2010, Dr. Blatt was one of only five individuals selected to go to China to provide Chiropractic care in a hospital in the Sichuan province. While he works with many populations including children, pregnant women, and elite athletes/performers, he is often sought by those who have not been able to have their health issues solved through medical or other natural approaches, including other forms of Chiropractic.
When outside of the practice, you’re likely to find Dr. Blatt playing his guitars in a studio, cycling through the 5 boroughs, or speaking to businesses and organizations about the importance of Tonal Correction, and a properly functioning neuro-spinal system.
Tonal Correction Vs. Conventional Chiropractic
Currently, most conventional chiropractors focus on goals like decreasing muscular spasm, increasing range of motion, and reducing pain, often with the help of various therapies. This type of care falls under the category of symptom reduction/management.
At AXIS Chiropractic, our unique approach is called Tonal Correction. Unlike conventional Chiropractic, Tonal Correction focuses on the TONE of the spinal cord/nervous system, specifically as it relates to the structure of the spine and its connective tissues.
In this context, TONE is the amount of tension in the spinal cord and nerves. To better understand this, consider a guitar string. A guitar string directly attaches to the very top and bottom of a guitar, and can only be tuned from these locations. Similarly, the spinal cord directly attaches to the very top and the very bottom of the spine, and the amount of tone, or tension in it is primarily affected by these spinal regions. (See Orange areas in Diagram A)
Just like an out of tune guitar string or a warped guitar creates abnormal and undesirable sounds, too much tension or tone in the spinal cord and nerves disrupts the ability of the brain and body to function normally, leading to many possible Secondary Conditions.
The goal of Tonal Correction is to address the underlying cause of abnormal tone and tension in the spinal cord and nerves, and to address specific structures of the spine. This adverse shift in tone and structure is known as Tonal Displacement.
Unlike most health providers who simply aim to remove symptoms and restore you to where you were just before you sought help, the purpose of Tonal Correction is to address the underlying issue(s) so your brain and body adapt and reorganize, so you can function at your best, and continue to do so.
