GREEN BROOK – Dr. Leonard Siskin’s main goal is to offer drug- and surgery-free solutions for achieving optimal health.

“It is my passionate belief chronic pain and sickness are the result of unresolved stresses to the body,” he said.

Siskin’s Family Chiropractic business focuses on wellness.

“Patients report to me that they suffer because their doctor does not know what else to do other than give them drugs and or tell them just to deal with their suffering,” he said. “It breaks my heart to hear about all the things people used to be able to do or are scared of trying in fear of pain or injury.”

Siskin has owned his chiropractic business on Route 22 in Green Brook since 1999. His business has evolved over the years, adding more equipment and techniques to help patients. In 2014, the clinic added the first BStrong4Life center in New Jersey, making it the 30th center in the United States, focusing on helping fall prevention and osteoporosis, he said.

“It’s fitness in 15 minutes,” he said. “It uses three very high tech exercise devices to strengthen people’s core muscles and posture muscles. Basically, if a person can come in 15 minutes once a week and then walk on their own, or work out on their own, they will have a complete routine.” He added that many times, people then wouldn’t need drugs that their doctor had prescribed for osteoporosis or osteopenia.

“Before we start a program, I do an evaluation,” he said. “If someone is falling or has been falling, we take standing X-rays of the spine, as, if they are going to be doing exercises, there could be a risk of breaking a bone, so we are very careful, doing a thorough assessment before they go through the equipment.”

He added that his program isn’t designed to replace working out, but rather has a workout enhancement for better, more stable posture and core muscles.

Siskin’s office also offers whole body vibration and has a bio density unit, utilizing isometric exercises with bio feedback, where progress is charted, so people can get feedback over time. “The bio unit is a series of four whole body core exercises, designed to address every major muscle group with posture and balancing,” he said.

He also helps people with scoliosis.

“Over time sometimes they get damage to parts of their spine,” he said. “We are able to sometimes put off or avoid another surgery or surgery altogether. I also have people who have had disc surgery and fusion surgery, and then sometimes the same problems reoccur 10 to 15 years later and they need another surgery. We can try to prevent that.”

Siskin has assisted in teaching continuing education seminars to chiropractors and has been published in the European Journal of Spine, an orthopedic medical journal. He also wrote a quarterly column in the American Journal of Clinical Chiropractic about chiropractic academic research for almost 10 years, until 2010. He is vice chair of the International Chiropractic Association’s Best Practices and Practice Guideline. He co-authored a guideline on radiation safety for chiropractors called, “Practicing Chiropractors’ Committee on Radiology Protocols.”

In addition, Siskin has served as a regional board member for the Association of New Jersey Chiropractors for nearly a decade through 2011. He built the database system used to run the N.J. state chiropractic organization. He has also won a number of awards over the years, including a special award for contributing to the betterment of the chiropractic profession and by Chiropractic Biophysics Nonprofit as 2007 Chiropractor of the Year.

“My main goal is to help people have better lives,” he said, explaining that many people come in who have “been in the traditional medical world, trying to solve problems and are not getting anywhere. They have physical pain issues, headaches, back pain, neck pain. We tend to be able to help people with those things, and either get them off or dramatically reduce medications.”

He also has massage therapists at his practice to go along with his other programs.

Client Kurtis Krom said Siskin was different from every other chiropractor and doctor he had been to.

“He has a unique approach as far as he really cares about you,” said Krom, who had chronic back pains after a fall years ago. He had been to two chiropractors before Siskin. “I immediately noticed a difference when I went to him. He takes you into his office and sits you down, and takes all of your health information. He also measured my legs, took X-rays and really developed an individual plan just for me. He has helped me so much. I am feeling so much better now, than I had prior to seeing him. He is a wonderful person, who really cares about his patients and helps them.”
