I am Dr. Shmuel Lux, a Holistic Chiropractor. Welcome to my website where you will find answers to many of your most common questions about alternative healthcare.

In addition to being a licensed Chiropractor, I also use a wide range of natural therapies in my practice including: Acupuncture, Applied Kinesiology (A.K.), NET (Neuro-Emotional Technique), NRT/CRA muscle testing, cranial therapy, cool laser, trigger-point ultra-soundnutritional therapy and lifestyle modifications. This holistic approach quickly reduces pain and allows the body to regain optimal health naturally.

I became a chiropractor as a result of severe, unrelenting, back pain due to injuries sustained during my service in the U.S. Marine Corps and a subsequent auto accident. Traditional medical care was unable to help me. When I returned to college in my early 20’s I was planning to be a dentist. However, in conversation with a classmate I learned about the chiropractic profession and decided to see if it could help my condition. After a series of treatments, I was finally able to obtain relief for the first time. I was so impressed with the effectiveness of chiropractic in alleviating my pain and addressing other health matters that I decided to switch career paths and become a chiropractor instead.

Now, patients come to me from all over Israel  to treat a wide variety of pain and internal organ conditions.

I utilize a unique diagnostic and treatment methodology of Applied Kinesiology and muscle testing to determine the most effective path for achieving pain relief and optimum health, thereby eliminating unnecessary trial and error treatments. This approach can determine if the cause of your condition is due to problems related to the nervous system, internal organ conditions, emotions or stress, imbalances in the acupuncture meridians, or nutritional deficiencies. Based on this analysis, recommendations are given for the most effective treatment programs and  lifestyle modifications.

I  have been in practice for over thirty-five years helping people feel better naturally, without drugs and surgery. A graduate of the New York Chiropractic College, I studied pre-med at Brooklyn College in New York, including the study of  organic and inorganic chemistry, biology and physics. Upon completion of four years of undergraduate studies, I entered a full time four and a half year Doctor of  Chiropractic program. Training included anatomy, physiology, pathology, microbiology, orthopedics, physiotherapy, neurology, biomechanics, X-ray diagnosis, blood-urine diagnosis, spinal adjusting techniques, and nutrition. For information regarding the professional education to obtain a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) see: http://www.chirocolleges.org/index.html

In addition to Chiropractic, I have completed post-graduate certifications in:

I regularly enroll in professional continuing education conferences and seminars, which are an important part of staying up-to-date with new trends in diagnosis and treatment. Currently, I am pursing a Diplomate in Chiropractic Neurology.

I am a member of the Israel Chiropractic Society (ICS), a Diplomate of the U.S. National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, licensed in the U.S. in New York and New Jersey. and was a treating Chiropractic Doctor in the 2009 Maccabiah Olympics.

As a holistic doctor I feel it is very important to recognize the connection between the body and the mind and provide a holistic approach to treating health conditions. I don’t just advise my patients what they should do, I actually do it myself. I exercise regularly, eat healthy foods, get proper rest, take nutritional supplements, and receive preventative, holistic chiropractic treatments.

If you are in pain or want to improve your health, please call Dr. Shmuel Lux: 052-401-3838 or email drsam@luxchiropractic.com to schedule an appointment and treatment plan today.

I look forward to helping you with your healthcare needs.
