Mindfulness programs and practices frequently describe a process of locating your "center." One's center may be conceived as a focus of energy, both spiritual and physical, by which all activities may be grounded and from which all activities flow. Similarly, ballet teachers and gymnastics instructors enjoin their pupils to "work from your center," meaning that the student's spins, leaps, kicks, and other choreographed movements should emanate from a central region of power. As well, coaches of many sports disciplines, including baseball, football, and basketball, encourage their athletes to "stay focused" and "see the ball going through the net." All of these injunctions are designed to remind players to reconnect to their center -- their focus of disciplined strength, quickness, and coordinated activity.
But you don't have to be a highly trained athlete or a master of meditation to be able to derive power, strength, and grace from your personal center. Each one of us has these capabilities. The first requirement for demonstrating and enhancing these qualities is having awareness and focusing attention on your center itself. One person may locate his center in his heart. Others may locate their centers in their spine or in their solar plexus, that is, the lower abdominal region. One's core musculature may also be identified as one's center. The key is not so much the perceived anatomical location of one's center, but rather maintaining the concept of, the focus on, the center.
The metaphor of a center may be extended to include a center for health. From a chiropractic perspective, your center for health is your nerve system and spinal column. The nerve system, the body's master system, transits information regarding healthy functioning from the brain to all the cells of the entire rest of the body. This information coordinates activities of the body's tissues and organ systems, and the free flow of information from the brain to the body and back again results in good health. The spinal column houses and protects the spinal cord and the roots of the spinal nerves, the main nerve trunks that send nerve branches to your arms, legs, hands, feet, and every other physical location.
Regular chiropractic care helps support your body's center for health by detecting and correcting sources of nerve irritation and by helping to maintain the durability and flexibility of your spinal column. In this way, regular chiropractic care helps ensure the ongoing health and well-being of everyone, including individuals, families, and communities.

Such nice office space. The Front Desk Manager was extremely helpful in scheduling me in for a same day appointment. With years of seeking medical attention for a severe neck/shoulder pain, Dr. Peter was the first Dr to sit with me and listen to my concerns. He was patient, attentive and created a treatment plan that I felt comfortable. His practice is modern, up to date and so comfortable. I highly recommend his practice if you're looking for quality treatment.

I saw Dr Peter to help me with some chronic back and neck pain. He did a fantastic job. Took his time to go over everything and explain what he was doing throughout the assessment. After the adjustment I felt so much better. Neck and back felt significantly better. I'll definitely continue seeing him.

Today, the "teacher" became the student/patient. In desperation and severe pain, I called my former chiropractic student, Dr. Kantzilieris to see if he could "fix" me. After a treatment by his gifted and truly magic hands, I walked out of the office totally upright for the first time today with an 80% reduction in pain. I never had a doubt. In the Paramus and surrounding area, look NO FURTHER than Next Step Chiropractic for your wellness needs!

After years of receiving treatment for a chronic pain condition at several other locations without much success, I visited Next Step Chiropractic in April. Dr. Peter is by the far one of the most understanding, respectful, and knowledgeable chiropractors out there. He genuinely cares about his patients and offers a variety of treatments, such as cold laser therapy and ultrasound. He came up with an individualized plan for me and for the first time in years, I have felt long lasting relief! I love that the office has individual treatment rooms for privacy. I highly recommend visiting Next Step Chiropractic and Dr. Peter.
