dr scott banks spinal decompressionSpinal decompression can be a very effective treatment for disc injuries. This would include disc herniations, disc bulges, spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis with or with out extremity pain.


At Banks Chiropractic and Wellness Center, in Huntington, NY we use the highest quality table on the market. The Antalgic Trak at our office is one of 25 in the country. This is the only Antalgic Trak in Suffolk County. After sampling several tables on the market including the DRX 9000 we chose the Antalgic Trak. The main reason is that it has a unique feature not found on any other table. We are able to put the patient into different therapeutic postures during our session. The posture that is painful under normal gravity conditions becomes therapeutic under decompression forces. By mobilizing the neck or lower back into different...

As many of you know I have a tremendous passion for helping patients reverse or prevent chronic disease of aging. I have been a practicing Chiropractor since 1982 and in 1995 I first heard Dr. Jeffrey Bland speak at a conference. From that moment on I knew that my education and direction of my practice would go in the direction of Functional Medicine. I recently completed and passed the rigorous certification program and can now use the title: Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner (IFMCP).


In order to sit for the exam and become certified I completed...

I have had the opportunity of listening to Dr. Houston many times over the last decade. He has helped increased my knowledge in the field of Cardiology. He is a good friend. Dr. Houston states that there is a strong relationship between gluten and metabolic syndrome. This will include vascular problems, endothelial dysfunction, coronary heart disease, etc.


The blood vessel has a infinite number of insults, but only three finite responses to the insults. The three finite responses are inflammation, oxidative stress, and vascular autoimmune dysfunction. Idiopathic cardio myopathy= swelling of the heart. This can reverse on a gluten free diet in gluten sensitive people.


In my practice for years I have always done the Advanced...

There was a recent article that created a media surge regarding the effects of fish oil supplementation on prostate cancer. This is not true. The subjects in this study were not supplemented with fish oil or on a high fish diet. This in itself means it is completely inappropriate to suggest that such would cause prostate cancer.

gluten free dr scott banksGluten-free has become a very common phrase lately. Many people may be wondering what it is, why, and what we really need to know, so here it is.


Gluten is the protein fraction of most cereals, including wheat, rye, and barley. Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune disorder, which affects genetically predisposed individuals upon the ingestion of gluten. Its prevalence has been underestimated, but it is now considered one of the most common genetic disorders. That gluten sensitivity is regarded, as principally a disease of the small bowel is a historical misconception (J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry 2002;72:560–563). Every time the disease is clinically diagnosed in an adult, that person has for decades had disease in a latent or silent stage (N England J Med Oct.23 2003,1673-4).


Some important things to know:

brain healthA few nights ago, we held a small lecture on about brain health, which has A LOT to do with overall health. 

For those of you who missed it, we've put together some of the most important points from the night, along with some of the most recommended supplements to kick start your brain health into high gear!

Alzheimer's is a preventable disease of old age for which there is no cure! Alzheimer's isn't all genetics. It's about epigenetics: all the environmental effects expressed on your genetics. British journal of health found that cholinesterase inhibitors used to treat Alzheimer's have been found ineffective. Reduce inflammation. Inflammation causes heart, brain, digestive, and other diseases. Oxidative stress is damage to lipids, proteins, DNA & RNA. This causes the brain to deteriorate. Vitamin C and E are antioxidants that help reverse oxidative stress and reduce prevalence of Alzheimer's....
