  • Dr.
    Stephen Cohen

    Stephen Cohen uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning.  Dr. Cohen takes a 'whole person' approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Cohen will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives. 

    Stephen Cohen graduated summa cum laude from Life University School of Chiropractic where he received his doctorate of chiropractic (DC) in 1997. Graduating from the State University of New York at Oswego in 1987, Steve obtained his bachelor’s degree in Psychology. He is one of the few doctors in the country who is certified in Graston Technique, Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), and a Fellow in the Acupuncture Society of America (FASA). He has also completed his FMT (Functional Movement Taping) training  and is a certified RockTape provider (RocDoc).  He added this training to his arsenal of soft tissue techniques designed to promote faster healing and maximizing athletic performance. Dr. Cohen has lectured across the U.S. to other chiropractors and has partnered in creating therapy tools and supplements used in chiropractic offices.

    After graduation, he moved to Charlotte, NC where he started Cohen Wellness Center and practiced for 15 years. The pull of the north, and his wife, convinced him to move back to the state in which he was raised. Dr. Cohen loves being back in New York where he can be found working out, playing with his two dogs and two cats, visiting upstate New York to see his step-daughters in college, or enjoying all that Long Island has to offer with his wife Jill .
