Our Philosophy

Dr. John Gehnrich prides himself on being the sole provider of both Neuro-Structural Corrective Chiropractic and Holistic Chiropractic Wellness. These practices allow Dr. John to look into the underlying cause of the problem and therefore identify the most effective Chiropractic approach. He looks at the body and the spine, and use this indicator to treat the cause, not just the symptoms you may feel. 

Holistic Chiropractic Care: Our Approach & Wellness Benefits

We’ve all heard this philosophy before: “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” Unfortunately, when it comes to our health, this approach can incorrectly cause us to assume that a lack of pain or other obvious symptoms of the disease means that we are healthy. That’s simply not the case. For example, heart disease typically does not display any symptoms, such as shortness of breath or pain radiating down the arm, until after the disease has progressed beyond the point of lifestyle change. By the time symptoms are apparent, your heart may be 60 to 70 percent dysfunctional, or worse, the first symptom may be a heart attack.

Dr. Gehnrich believes in a proactive approach to wellness care focused on disease prevention. While his approach may seem straightforward, it can have a profound impact on a patient’s health and is a large reason that Dr. Gehnrich is able to boast such healthy lifestyles in his patients. Spinal adjustments are designed to remove nervous system interference and subluxations, allowing the brain to properly communicate through the spinal cord in what we refer to as the Neuro-Structural Connection. This can sometimes correct or “heal” another condition previously caused by lack of communication between the brain and body, and is often a large side benefit of Chirorpractic.

Dr. Gehnrich is passionate about preventive wellness care. If a patient comes to our office seeking relief from recurring back pain, neck pain, sciatica, or any number of issues, Dr. Gehnrich’s mission is three-fold: provide immediate relief, identify the root cause, and correct this cause to reduce the risk of pain recurrence. When Dr. Gehnrich adjusts the spine or neck and corrects subluxations, he does more than just adjust the painful section. Since the spine is connected everywhere, he will adjust the body holistically, from top to bottom and bottom to top.

Cold Laser Therapy for Pain Relief & Injury Recovery

Cold laser therapy is an essential component of our holistic approach to pain relief and a natural complement to chiropractic care. Cold laser therapy from a Class IV laser can decrease acute and chronic pain while helping the body heal faster after injury.

If you are frustrated with chronic pain or have been told by a medical professional that invasive surgery or prescription painkillers are your only option, there is a better way. Holistic chiropractic care addresses the root cause of pain and systems dysfunction, supporting whole body health from within. The result: you can return to living a full, active life while reducing the risk for future health problems.  

We take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Rockville Centre office.

Chiropractic Care
We provide advanced Chiropractic techniques that are aimed at treating the neuro-structural connection. The spine is the trunk of the body, and almost all nerves of the sympathetic system move through it. Through Dr. John's healing hands, and advanced technology, he is able to identify the root cause of the issue with an examination, Postural Spinal Analysis, Bilateral Gravity Assessment, computerized Spinal thermal imaging, and radiographs to see exactly what the problem is. Applying his experienced mind, Dr. John puts his hands to work on fixing the issue using all natural techniques that vary from patient to patient.

Corrective Exercises
Following the philosophy that the body has the ability to heal itself, "blueprint" exercises are designed by Dr. Gehnrich to help patients strengthen and correct their own internal problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and have been found to improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction and posture by as much as 30-40%. Skeletal misalignments are often compounded with muscles and connective tissues that are also out of place or strained by improper the improper alignment of the spine. The exercises create at Rhino Chiropractic can help your body stay in balance and correct and communication within the body that is out of whack.

The real power of Dr. Gehnrich is the combination of chiropractic, holistic healing, and the assessment between the spine and the brain. To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. John's specific Chiropractic adjustment treatment, Rhino Chiropractic and Holistic Wellness also provides the following procedures: 

  • Cold Laser Therapy
