What They’re Saying
Dr. Stephan Howard-Cooper’s clinical skills as well as hands on approach to resolving my condition was spot on and had me feeling much better in less than 2 weeks. Not only am I a back patient, I’m a chiropractor as well, which means that I’m going to be quite picky about who I choose. His office is close to Union Square station which makes for easy access from most parts of NYC. I would definitely recommend this doctor for headaches, neck and back pain, sciatica, etc….. Dr.Jeff Rosenberg
“I’ve been going to a chiropractor since I was 13 years old and have gone through numerous chiro’s. Stephan is hands-down THE BEST one I have ever had. No only does he adjust with absolute perfection, he has a great sense of humor and is highly personable to boot. I always walk into his office confident that any pain or stiffness that was present will be gone upon the conclusion of my appointment.”
LOW BACK PAIN
“When I sprained my back, I wasn’t content to sit at home, take muscle relaxers and Tylenol, and hope that it would all get better. Dr. Howard-Cooper not only helped me to relieve the pain, regain strength and full range of motion in my back, he also taught me how to maintain a healthy back and take good care of myself for years to come.”
“I was taking as many as six (6) ibuprofen daily for back and neck pain before I began seeing Dr. Howard Cooper four years ago. I’ve taken less than 20 TOTAL since that time. I highly recommend his technique.”

“Doctor Cooper's approach to good health is identical to my approach to my work in the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus- immersive, all-body, All-mind dedication to a lifestyle where all elements are in balance. A Cirkus artist is nowhere without good balance! Thank you Doctor Cooper!"

“I had severe back pain and couldn’t move, much less run. I am back to 5 miles a day.”
“I would never have believed how good Dr. Howard-Cooper could make me feel. My martial arts have markedly improved. I now consider the best thing I do for myself is Chiropractic from Dr. Howard-Cooper.”
M.K.: Martial arts instructor
"I had been under Dr. Howard-Cooper's care throughout my pregnancy and didn't have much of the back pain and fatigue that my friends complained about during their pregnancies. I also delivered in about six hours. Now I bring the baby with me for care when I go for my chiropractic adjustments."
A Wizard – For over 15 years, Dr. Howard-Cooper has been a core part of my process of health and well-being. At least once or twice a year, my back goes out in a painful way. Usually, with one session, sometimes two and rarely three, I’m fully recovered. Sometimes something is off with my knee, my ankle or there is a pain in my thigh, and within moments of looking at me, and watching me walk for a moment or two, Dr. Howard-Cooper sees what’s off balance and he always knows exactly how to find the source of the physical stress, and how to release it. I go through life with a confidence that this wizard has an open door, ready to help and set me, and countless others, back in ease, grace and comfort. His ability to see the connections to diet, sleep, other stresses or bodily challenges (carrying children) have been uncanny. I have recommend Dr. Howard Cooper to friends and family; my reference is unconditional. RP, NYC
Highly Recommended Chiropractic Care – Dr. Cooper was recommended to me by a fellow musician. He brings professionalism and his humor together in a great way, making a chiropractic visit feel like visiting a buddy and not so much someone who is just moving your bones around. He loves what he does, and that is refreshing. He is in tune with his patients and takes the time to know about you and what you need now and in the future. Cracking jokes as well as your back, it is always a fun and therapeutic experience. Highly recommended. Mike Moreno. Musician
