Chiropractor Dr. Jose Cortes was born in Cienfuegos, Cuba, but he grew up in Brooklyn. He embodies the results of dedication, hard work and discipline. He is currently a certified practitioner of the Gonstead Technique and recently joined Dr. Steven Shoshany's Manhattan Chiropractic, Medical, and Pain Management practice.
Formerly a nationally ranked bodybuilder who competed in the NPC, Dr. Cortes has an unparalleled understanding of the human body, how it functions, and how to make it function optimally. Dr. Cortes also uses the Gonstead method to provide remarkable results for patients suffering from back pain caused by herniated or bulging discs.
Dr. Cortes also spent many years working as a personal trainer before becoming a chiropractor. He decided to go see a chiropractor after sustaining an injury while training, he had herniated a disc in his back. The experience was debilitating, with shooting pain down the leg, along with sharp pain in his lower back any time he moved. He was not able to go about his life normally and didn't find relief until he decided to seek out the help of a local chiropractor. With chiropractic care, he started on his path to recovery and optimal health. He decided to become a chiropractor after seeing the effects proper chiropractic care can have on the body, and he enrolled in Life University in Atlanta Georgia. He continues to expand his abilities, and is pursuing his certifications in Wellness and Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP).
Dr. Cortes feels that chiropractic care is extraordinary in what it can do for his patients because it addresses the cause of the problem and doesn't just try to treat the symptom. It also allows the body's ability to heal itself to function optimally without relying totally on external methods like drugs, and surgeries. His patients don't just get a simple adjustment, Dr. Cortes is interested in helping people optimize their body, so they can live and work without pain.
"I've seen life changing effects on patients that carry over to other aspects of their lives, not just their pain, some patients have achieved life goals as a result of their treatment". Dr. Cortes understands that painful conditions such as sciatica, and lower back pain can keep people from living their lives, and achieving their goals.
