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!

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!

Cold, Cold, Go Away!: 10 Foods to Help Beat a Flu or Cold

In Back pain, Chiropractic, Health, massage therapy, neck pain, New York City, Nutrition on 02/17/2016 at 10:54 am

ACHOOO! That single sneeze can send 100,000 germs into the air and unfortunately your hat, scarf, and gloves can’t always protect you from what lies ahead for this flu season. ..Especially when you’re getting sneezed on by the germ infested person sitting next to you on the train or just regretting not paying with your credit card after noticing a cashier coughing into his hand and then handing you, your change.

Germs are everywhere and as the cold and flu season is upon us, it’s important to realize that protecting yourself from these infectious diseases/viruses requires more than just bundling up. You have to help your body by in-taking a variety of immune-boosting foods that can keep you healthy once the flu season strikes and all year round.

10 Foods to Help Beat a Flu or Cold

1.       White Button Mushrooms- These funghi help to increase the activity of natural killer (NK) cells, which are very crucial to your immune system.

2.       Tea- Whether it’s black, green, oolong, or pekoe tea, they will all help strengthen your body’s immune response, especially when it’s fighting off an infection.

3.       Chicken Soup- Chicken soup has anti-inflammatory properties that inhibit the activity of neutrophils, the white blood cells that are released by viral infections like colds.

4.       Garlic- Within garlic, there is Allicin, a powerful antibacterial compound.

5.       Broccoli- Broccoli is loaded with the chemical sulforophane, which is a compound activates antioxidant genes and enzymes that counteract the effects of cell-damaging free radicals.

6.       Natural Almonds- Natural almonds helps boost disease fighting power in the immune system, but you must eat the almonds with their skins on!

7.       Turmeric Turmeric aids in strengthening cell membranes and helping cells resist infection.

8.       Pumpkin- Pumpkin seeds are loaded with Zinc, which helps your body fight infection. The flesh of the pumpkin is filled with immune-boosting beta carotene.

9.       Fish- Fish contains plenty of omega-3 fatty acids, which helps to reduce inflammation, increasing airflow and protecting lungs from colds and respiratory infections. Selenium helps white blood cells produce cytokines-proteins that help clear flu viruses out of the body.

10.   Yogurt- Yogurt contains Probiotics which are healthy bacteria that keep the gut and intestinal tract free of disease-causing germs.

So before you dive into a tub filled with hand sanitizer to help fight off flu and infection, just remember there are foods you can eat that will strengthen your immune system before, during and after the flu season.  This flu season MaxWell Medical wants to help you fight against the germs in this city and SNEEZE LESS!
