The Chiropractor Your Family Can Trust
Allowing the natural power of the body to be expressed to its fullest potential is what makes chiropractic a potent healthcare practice. I can think of no more natural, powerful, and safe form of treatment for everyone, from newborns through seniors, than chiropractic. —Harvey J. Markovitz
Commitment to Natural Health Care
I became a chiropractor in 1976, before it was a popular form of healthcare, because I believed that the body has powerful recuperative abilities, which — when optimized through spinal adjustments — can relieve pain and suffering and allow people to more fully live life. Spinal adjustments have been used safely and effectively for thousands of years, throughout the world.
I don’t find more traditional forms of healthcare, using drugs and surgery, to be effective or even appropriate for most people with spinal-related conditions. I dedicate myself to bringing the safest, most effective, and latest advances in chiropractic care to my patients. With this commitment, I aim to practice the highest level of chiropractic care for the entire family.

My chiropractic college gave me an excellent education to assist people in regaining their strength, flexibility and balance. Since graduation, I have continued to get cutting-edge education and training as new material proves to be useful. After completing a three-year post-graduate program in orthopedics, I completed a second post-graduate course in rehabilitation.
These courses allowed me to learn from the best practitioners in the world, whose knowledge and training I incorporate into my practice. I continue to advance my training to learn the latest techniques for healing and wellness. In addition to attending postgraduate courses and the required seminars each year for licensing, I have also taken many additional classes, including:
- Adjusting Technique
- Spinal and Soft Manipulation
- Extremity Adjusting
- Personal Injury
- Workplace Safety
- Workers’ Compensation
I really recommend Dr. Harvey Markovtiz. He is an excellent chiropractor who has helped me a great deal. I have benefited from his many years of experience as well as his excellent expertise in all of the latest Chiropractic methods and approaches to healing. He deals not just with symptoms but understands the underlying sources of pain and dysfunction and how to heal them. In addition to his effective pain relieving treatments, he has helped me understand the underlying sources of my difficulties and guided me through various exercises and postural changes that have been very beneficial to my health. Dr. Markovitz is also a kind, caring and supportive doctor. I have referred my friends to him and would recommend him to others as well. You can put your trust in him.
