Today, marks the end of our week-long anniversary celebration. We are truly humbled by these past ten years. Our founders’ journey is one of dedication, resilience & true passion to care for people. They began their careers in this industry years before MaxWell Medical was born. They understood the strength it would take to truly care for people in pain. They knew New Yorkers didn’t have to suffer anymore. Their day didn’t end at the end of their workday, it was only just beginning. They wanted to help and show everyone that relief is within reach. They believed a doctor’s office didn’t have to feel like one. Here, you’re greeted with a friendly smile and you can smile back knowing you’re on the road to recovery.

Our doors opened months before the recession, it wasn’t the ideal time to start a small business but, we believed in our doctors, our therapists, our team. It was difficult to see our growing patient base start to lose their jobs. Patients came from Hypo, Bear Sterns, Merrill Lynch sullen & defeated. Without the insurance we accepted in their office, they thought they’d have to say good-bye. Instead, we created leniency programs to continue their treatment at our office.  We even started hiring more of a support staff, who better to work with MaxWell Medical than former patients.

Year after year, our dedicated team treated thousands of people. Together, we’ve celebrated birthdays and weddings, birth announcements, first home purchases, and together, we supported each other through loss and hard times. Our little team of 8 has grown to over 100. Our amazingly diverse, American & multicultural team has crossed Marathon finish lines together, walked for a cure for AIDS, built homes in Tijuana, Mexico with Esperanza International. We’ve matched donations to support the National Down Syndrome Society, Ronald McDonald House of NY, March of Dimes, typhoon in the Philippines, earthquake relief in Haiti. Each charity was special to us and it meant something to someone helping to heal our patients. We are so grateful to our team. Without their immense knowledge, their support, their innovative ideas, their encouragement, and especially their laughter we wouldn’t have made it to 10. We really are a family.

We’d like to thank our patients. Our weekend warriors, those mothers and fathers whose days only seem to get longer, those typing away at their desks, those who liked us on Facebook, referred their friends and family, those who follow us on Instagram and twitter and join in on all the fun at our offices. We are honored to have seen you, heard you and helped you. There are hundreds of other facilities in Manhattan but, you chose us and for that we thank you!

We are looking forward to another 10, 20, 30… years helping everyday New Yorkers/Bronxites/Manhattanites/Queensites/Brooklynites/Staten Islanders/Long Islanders & New Jerseyans. We are continuing to grow! We are expanding to the West side and beyond. We’re always looking to add to our MaxWell family and it could even be YOU!

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO…  YES, YES, YES, YES, YES… Depending on which team you’ll be rooting for on Super bowl Sunday, those two words may be the only thing coming out of your mouth. But judging by the usual Super bowl Sunday menu items, the food entering your mouth is what you should be saying “No” or “Yes” to.

When did Super bowl Sunday become a holiday? It feels like people are cooking and ordering more food on this day then they would on Christmas or even Thanksgiving. Yes, the Super bowl received 106.5 million viewers last year, but we can give you 106.5 million reasons why you should avoid eating 13 Buffalo wings, 6 slices of pizza, 3 hamburgers, 2 bags of chips and drinking half a case of beer. Well, maybe not 106.5 million reasons but, we’ve found some really great recipes for your Super Bowl party!

We munch and crunch our way through the game.. But, are the French fries, wings, soda/beers really worth it when your team is finally at the end zone?

Swap your greasy snacks to make sure you’re always WINNING!

Health Fix Mixes: 5 Juice Recipes that Cleanse

In Health, Lifestyle, Nutrition on 07/12/2016 at 1:45 pm

“Juice Cleansing” has gotten a bad rap. Sorry Beyoncé, the Lemon Detox Diet isn’t going to cut it anymore. Lemon with a splash of cayenne pepper won’t keep you going after a few hours let alone an entire day. The real goal of a juice cleanse shouldn’t just be the weight loss, juicing should energize and detoxify your body.  These 5 Juice Recipes will help you consume more fruits and vegetables and get you on the right “nutritional” track:

5 Juice Recipes that Cleanse:

1)     Cataract Fighting Carrots

  • 4 carrots (chop off tops and tails)
  • 4 celery stalks
  • Handful of parsley (with stems)
  • 1 small zucchini (don’t peel)
  • ½ of a beet
  • ¼ grapefruit (peeled)

2)     Gaga over Greens

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Bunches each of green kale, spinach, collard greens and water cress
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 3 carrots

3)     Citrus Chops

  • 1 apple
  • 2 peaches (cut in half, seeds removed)
  • 2 oranges (peeled)
  • ½ cup of blueberries, raspberries, and/or blackberries

4)     Fruit & Veggie Punch

  • 1 orange
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 cucumber
  • 3 tomatoes

5)     Flavor Flav

  • 4 medium tomatoes
  • 1 bunch of spinach or kale
  • ½ of a bell pepper
  • ½ small lemon
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 1 beet (peeled with tops and tails chopped off)

*Recipes may require a juice and/or blender. Always try to choose organic fruits and vegetables.

There isn’t a fruit or vegetable mix that doesn’t satisfy your healthy fix. Be sure to try these and some of your own. Vitamins and minerals in fruits and vegetables can detoxify your body inside and out and get you ready for your weight-loss plan. MaxWell Medical wants you to JUICE MORE!

Brrr: 5 Tips to Sweat it Out in the Cold!

In Back pain, Chiropractic, Exercise, Health, Injuries, Lifestyle, Marathon, neck pain, New York City, Uncategorized on 02/19/2016 at 2:37 pm

You barely survived the holidays or these frigid temps around Valentine’s Day, the last thing on your mind is taking a step outdoors where it’s cold and miserable. It’s hard during the winter to stick to a work-out but, MaxWell Medical has 5 tips to help you battle the cold weather and get motivated!

5 Tips to Help you Sweat it Out in the Cold:

1)      Bundle Up!—Layering is an absolute must to be ready for the cold weather. Prepare further by placing your clothes in the dryer beforehand so you’re nice and toasty. Runners recommend wearing mittens instead of gloves, to increase shared body warmth.

2)      Be a Winter Ninja— You look like the abominable snowman but, your face and your neck are still exposed to the elements. Be sure to put on a face mask like the balaclava to cover your face and neck from the cold. You’d rather look silly than suffer frostbite later.

3)      Warm-Up—what better way to get your body warmer than stretching? Do a 10-minute workout inside to get your blood flowing and make the transition to outside easier.

4)      Footgear— You don’t have to be a work-out enthusiastic to know that colder weather brings about icier conditions on the roads and pavement. Make sure your shoes have proper traction so that you’re walking instead of ice skating.

5)      H20 and SPH— Water and sunblock may seem like items you’ll only need during warmer weather work-outs but, these items are just as crucial during winter. Your body is still losing fluids from sweat and respiration. Runners recommend using petroleum jelly and sunscreen to avoid chaffing and sunburn.

You don’t have to be a polar bear to enjoy this weather. MaxWell Medical wants you to use these tips and BEAR THE COLD!
