Chiropractic & Physical Therapy

Chiropractic & Physical Therapy of your neck and back are minor movements of vertebrae in the spine, that serve to realign and increase overall movement due to inactivity or trauma.  Our Chiropractors and Therapists are gentle, comprehensive, and use the latest techniques.


Spinal Decompression Therapy

Non-surgical spinal decompression utilizes a specialized decompression table to relieve debilitating pain due to fixated, bulging, degenerating, or herniated vertebral discs, subsequently enabling surrounding tissue to freely move back into place and heal.

Acoustic Sound Wave Treatment

The Miracle Wave® Acoustic Sound Wave is a cutting-edge, non-invasive acoustic treatment system utilizing sound waves (acoustic pulses) initiating a healing effect on musculoskeletal aches and pains due to chronic or repetitive stress injuries.

Holistic Injury Rehabilitation

The latest research shows that long term successful and sustainable injury rehabilitation must encompass the entire musculoskeletal system.  Our Chiropractors believe in the whole body approach to rehabilitation to include all related joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves.

Whole Body Vibration

WBV has been an accepted form of exercise in many Chiropractic and Physical Therapy clinics, gyms and other healthcare facilities. It is beneficial for several reasons including enhanced proprioception, muscle fiber recruitment, and increased muscle tissue blood supply.

Nutritional and Fitness Counseling

You are what you eat, how you move, what you think, and even how you sleep.  Working in conjunction with Chiropractic, our comprehensive nutritional counseling program addresses your overall well-being, guiding you back on track to a vibrant, fit, and rejuvenated you.

Rejuvenating Therapy Spotlight

Acoustic Wave Therapy treats a variety of conditions and helps improve patient outcomes including, but not limited to:

  • Chronic or Acute Musculoskeletal Pain
  • Poor Circulation
  • Limited Range of Motion
  • Soft Tissue Injury & Damage

The best part? Treatment with non-invasive acoustic sound wave results in little to no side effects and no downtime. This means you are able to quickly resume daily activities and lifestyle. No more worrying about post-treatment side effects.

New Book Available on Amazon

Habits around eating affect your life in more ways than you can imagine. This book gives you specific steps, including a 7-Day Meal Plan and recipes to get you started on your leading-edge path to discovering a new approach to the way you think about and behave around food.

This relatable and reader-friendly book is a compilation of analyses, professional perspectives, personal experiences, observations, and academic research. Three generations and a Ph.D., encompassing a wide array of places, faces, towns, cities, cuisines, and innovative family recipes, come together to form this refreshing work. A theme running throughout each generation and dovetailing into this book is how common sense and intuition become our guide, influence, and major ally in the choices, decisions, and ultimately, our daily habits which determine the quality of our life. All this is possible only when we stop and pay attention.

With a focus on food, mental and emotional well-being, and physical movement, you will be guided through concrete steps with a meal plan, recipes, and journaling instructions to shift your current state into one of balance, ease, and dignity.

Melanie D. Larinde, Ph.D., has a particular passion for human health in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual realm of daily living.

Excellent5.0 Based on 33 reviews from review us onRyan PattersonRyan Patterson ★★★★★ Dr Mark is awesome. Does a great job listening and providing targeted treatments to deliver better range of motion and quality of lifeAndrew SalamoneAndrew Salamone ★★★★★ No need to spend any more time researching chiropractors. I can assure you Mark is the best you're going to find.I've seen Mark over the past year for some challenging issues, and he's been a tremendous help throughout. He's the best for a few reasons:1) As experienced as they get. He's been doing this for a long time and has seen just about everything by now.2) He listens and really cares. He really takes the time to understand your symptoms and find the right treatment plan. I've yet to find someone that genuinely cares about his patients / clients (in any area) as much as Mark does.3) He's comprehensive in how he treats you. Most other chiropractors do a few quick adjustments, maybe some e-stim and you're on your way in 10 minutes. Mark is great with adjustments but he does so much more than that when it comes to working on your body. Spinal decompression, traction of my lower back, trigger point work; he does a little bit of everything to get you back to your best.I rarely write reviews, but after seeing so many chiropractors that I've had disappointing experiences with, I think it's important to highlight how helpful Mark is.Nancy Paradis (LA Dance Moves)Nancy Paradis (LA Dance Moves) ★★★★★ Dr. Mark Larinde has been helping me for several years with my neck issues and all around issues associated with being a dancer/choreographer. He is wonderful at identifying the exact point of trauma and addressing it. Not only do I get relief from each visit, but he gives me personalized exercises to help heal and overcome my issues.Dr. Mark's warm and friendly approach is wonderful and he helps calm your muscles down prior to the adjustments, which is super helpful!Thank you Dr. Larinde at the Center for Health and Longevity!BritthollaaaBritthollaaa ★★★★★ This is the best chiropractor I've ever had! I'm a professional ballet dancer and he has helped me with so many issues! I leave feeling better than ever every time!JILL TRAUBJILL TRAUB ★★★★★ Dr Larinde is a kind, excellent, thorough practitioner. His workspace is fabulous with easy parking. Highly recommend Dr Larinde.Mary HuntMary Hunt ★★★★★ Dr Mark is a great chiropractor, with an added bonus of being a great human being. He has helped me tremendously. When I was in a lot of pain after a sudden injury - he made sure I could be seen quickly and effectively. I’m not comfortable with sudden adjustments. Dr Mark, respects that and goes slow and asks if I’m comfortable with what he is doing.Beautiful office space, extremely knowledge chiropractor and a kind person - if you’re looking for a chiropractor I highly recommend.Angela TortuAngela Tortu ★★★★★ dr Mark is very knowledgeable and spends lots of time with you each visit. I always feel better!Paul WoolnoughPaul Woolnough ★★★★★ I would recommend them to anyone!Katty DouraghyKatty Douraghy ★★★★★ Dr. Mark is phenomenal. Takes great care, shares specifics of what he is doing and educates in the process, highly recommend. And the office is beautiful, clean, bright with great new equipment.sheila weylandsheila weyland ★★★★★ Dr Mark is an excellent chiropractor. He takes time to understand what your concerns are and is careful to treat you in a individual way that addresses your needs. My whole family go to him - even my husband who does not like having his neck cracked, swears by him for his treatments. In addition he is an extremely nice guy who goes out of his way to fit you in. His new offices are really nice, clean and modern. I highly recommend him.ALEXIS NOLLMANNALEXIS NOLLMANN ★★★★★ I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Larinde. I do a lot of dance and kickboxing - both of which can leave my neck and shoulders very tight. Not only do I feel like Dr. Larinde has corrected my alignment and increased my range of motion at the conclusion of each visit, but he is also one of the kindest people I have come across. He has an intuitive sense of what needs attention and I have never felt rushed through a visit; instead he has always taken his time to give me the best care possible because he genuinely cares about helping his clients heal and feel better. The icing on this chiropractic cake, is that he has a beautiful office with plenty of parking. He is a rare find and is worth the effort I make to commute across town for our sessions.Joseph StaretskiJoseph Staretski ★★★★★ I am so grateful to have had Dr Mark Larinde recommended to me! I am 74 years old, a time of increasing aches and pains. I am active, exercise regularly and Dr Mark keeps the pains to a minimum! He is not of the old crack-crack-crack chiropractic school—a school where over the years I’ve been periodically hurt more time than I care to remember—but instead employs myriad other ways of stretching, loosening, adjusting, relaxing and healing areas of the body. And he’s a great guy. I can’t recommend the Center for Health and Longevity highly enough!Matthew H.Matthew H. ★★★★★ Dr Mark, I feel so much better! Impressive results for only two sessions with you. My neck has not felt this good in a very long time. You are one in a million ~ Thank you!Eileen HuthEileen Huth ★★★★★ Dr. Reichardt is amazing.The services promised helped me and my lower back, as well my ongoing migraines have eased away.
