This review is from Richard Berkheiser. As a building contractor for over 30 years, I've done my share of heavy lifting. My lower back has given me problems over the years when it gets out of alignment. Many years ago, while working on a residential property, I had such an occurrence. The owner, seeing how much discomfort I was experiencing suggested I call her chiropractor, Dr. Berkowitz. In desperation I drove to her office without an appointment. Dr. Berkowitz was so gracious, she gave up her lunch hour to help me. To my surprise, she didn't rack or crack me, just gentle manipulation to realign my spine. I was able to walk out of her office much easier than I walked in. After a few more visits, my pain was gone. I've been a patient for many years now and Dr. Berkowtiz has always been able to straighten me out, pun intended. Seriously, if you're living with back pain, I'm here to tell you, you don't have to. Give Dr. B. a call. You'll be glad you did.

Dr. Berkowitz's gentle treatment was effective in relieving my shoulder and back pain. I had previously tried orthopedic treatment, including shots, which were not nearly as helpful. I highly recommend her.

I have went to sharon periodically over the past 10 years. first for my sciatica. i had tried everything ,orthopaedics, physical therapy, nothing worked for years. one shot with Sharon i was fixed and haven't had an issue in years. Recently I went back to her again for a different issue. I am a hairstylist for 17 years. My hands are my life. I started w/ what i thought was carpal tunnel. Sharon didnt think that was the problem,she adjusted my hands arms and feet. I got instant relief. Her technique is genius. I can't figure it out what she does but whatever it is it WORKS.

Dr. Berkowitz has brought me back to life! Sounds dramatic I know, but anyone who has ever suffered from chronic pain can understand.

I was recently diagnosed with bulging disc problems and before I saw Dr. Berkowitz I was barely making it through the day with out tears. Even after 2 cortizone shots my professional and social life were suffering along with my pain and I was considering surgery.

Luckily I found Dr. Berkowitz and within a few short months in her care I am happy to say that I am not in pain and my overall well being feels renewed. Her approach is relaxing, gentle and best of all effective. I have never been to a traditional chiropractor but be assured this is not about cracking your bones, DNFT is soft and calming. In addition to her methods I have learned so many quick tips from her about adjusting small things in my life that have helped me tremendously. She is so caring and compassionate and I am sure she can help anyone who needs it.

Thank you Dr. Berkowitz, you saved me.

Dr. Berkowitz has helped me cope with chronic pain issues in a safe and responsive environment. My only regret is that I waited so long to make an appointment! I recommend her without reservation.

Dr. Berkowitz is an excellent Chiropractor. In my opinion, Directional Non-Force Technique is the best type of Chiropractic. You are comfortable, relaxed. There is only gentle tapping and touching. She makes you feel good when you're done. And the results are excellent.

I recommend Dr. Berkowitz to anyone who needs chiropractic.

I've been seeing Dr. Berkowitz for many years and really rely on her to help me stay healthy and pain free which is important in that I own my own business and need to do a lot of lifting.

But I'm also the mother of two young children, both of whom have benefited greatly from her abilities. Several years ago, my older son suffered from intermittent leg aches. The podiatrist told me that he had flat feet and prescribed orthotics, which helped, but certainly didn't solve the problem. After a few sessions with Dr. Berkowitz, my son's leg aches went away completely, and he only occassionally has any remaining problems. He no longer uses the orthotics.

About a year ago, after a series of head colds, my younger son was experiencing hearing loss due to fluid in his ear canal. He saw specialists and they had nothing to suggest except that the problem should improve during the summer, when cold season was over. His hearing did improve during the summer, but then, in the fall, after his first head cold, his hearing loss reoccurred. Dr. Berkowitz suggested I bring him to her for a quick session (she squeezed him in between patients!) and his hearing was normal the next day! He's had no problems for the rest of this winter, despite several head colds.

I take my kids to Dr. Berkowitz every once in a while for adjustments and they have no problems with it. The technique is so gentle. They actually look forward to visits because they love playing with toys she has available in a little basket in the waiting room.

Needless to say, I highly recommend her as a chiropractor and all-around natural health practitioner.

I have been a patient of Dr. Berkowitz for many years. DNFT works for me. Sharon has guided me though many physical and emotional stresses from general chiropractic "tune ups" to specific problems or injuries. She is an excellent chiropractor and a wonderful person. Most importantly for me.....I TRUST HER! And recommend her highly.

Dr Berkowitz is a stand alone Chiropractor in Philadelphia. Her technique (Directional Non Force) is NOT the usual "back cracking" Chiropractic. It's a a gentle technique that is a catalyst for putting the spine and body in alignment. She gets people better faster than traditional Chiropractic. While she has regular patients who come for maintenance, her goal is to get you better in a hand full of treatments. This is also very unique in the Chiropractic World. She also spends much more time with her patients than traditional Chiropractors. Her demeanor is also extremely compassionate and you know you're in the presence of a person who takes takes her Art seriously.

In my first visit, I even experienced a slight change in my tinnitus which I didn't think was possible since I've had it for 20 years. I found myself walking better and felt more grounded.

If you have tried Chiropractic in the past but found the treatments too harsh, too quick and too many, you owe it to give Dr Berkowitz a call.

This is the best gentle chiropractic technique ever! I have e suffered terribly with pain from two herniated and one bulging disc off and on for years! I have tried so many therapies including physical therapy, masage, injections, stretching, core training, deep breathing, meditation and so on. When I finally found the chiropractic technique, directional non force technique and Dr. Sharon Berkowitz, I really began to have a great turn around! For the first time the pain, numbness, spasms and weakness that I have felt for so long has abated and I have such greater function in every day activities. This type of chiropactic is so very gentle and so highly effective that I wish I had found it years earlier. I hope you try this out because the suffering from disc injuires is awful and there truly is help out there! Dr. Berkowitz spends so much time with you and really cares about her patients. She gives you exercises, teaches relaxation techniques, breathing and so much more!

Dr Berkowitz has been my chiropracter for a number of years. I first went to her for back and shoulder problems. I was surprised that the direct non-force technique did not immediately crink my shoulder back into place, but the next day as I was reaching to answer the phone I felt all of the bones across my back ripple themselves back into place! I have continued to see Dr Berkowitz monthly, and she has addressed problems such as my knees being out of alignment after slipping during a business trip (and being cramped in the plane), my tense jaw after major dental work, and strengthening and aligning my lower arm after I broke it visiting my sons in Arizona.

Pros: convenient location is downtown, appointment times mesh with work schedule

Cons: can't think of any

Dr. Berkowitz is a skilled and very knowledgeable chiropractor in Center City Philadelphia. Her technique offers tremendous pain relief without the drastic manipulations of traditional chiropractic practice. Dr. Berkowitz is also a chiropractor who appreciates meditation, awareness, and spirituality, and she brings these practices to her work. She also offers patients a wellness program of monthly sessions which can prevent problem relapse and avoid a great deal of pain and suffering. I very highly recommend Dr. Berkowitz.

I came to Dr. Berkowitz some years ago after years of classic chiropractic and found much more than I'd hoped for. Though she says she can't help everyone, I never imagined such a subtle technique could do so much good, sometimes immediately, in my case. I responded to the whole gamut of resources, the various types of adjustments, an approach to life that accepted who I was and what I did rather than treated me as sick and limited, dialogues that could be clinical, mundane, or philosophical. She's not dogmatic, doesn't scold or lecture. The human being and practitioner are both there for the many sides of the patient, and different patients set different tones. Her other patients whom I know are tellingly diverse--male, female, old, young, from the legal and business world as often as others, and I know they interact differently even if they like her for the same reasons I do. She believes in and uses conventional medical resources, and her techniques blend well with other forms of pursuing wellness. The combination has been really helpful especially with the range of orthopedic glitches over time.

I travel a distance (90 minutes) to experience the magic touch of Dr. Sharon
Berkowitz. Non-directional force is an incredible resource for relieving physical
pain and for bringing balance to the body, mind and soul.
I always feel calmer after my appointment. Stress dissipates and I feel deeply
rejuvenated on a cellular level. Dr. Sharon Berkowitz is a master who truly
cares about the well being of her patients. I highly recommend this technique.
It is a true treasure not to be missed!

I have been seeing Dr. Berkowitz for about 6 months now for pain related to years of hunching over a computer. I first went to a traditional chiropractor who began to awaken my body, but I was never really comfortable with the brute force of the whole thing. I heard a brief description of her practice by Dr. Berkowitz and have been amazed at how my body has progressed with such gentle care! Another focus of hers that I greatly appreciate is on very easy exercises I can follow at home to strengthen my core muscles for the first time in my life! Her holistic approach is enhanced by the fact that Dr. Berkowitz is extremely personable and always a pleasure to visit. One other thing that amazed me was how quickly Dr. Berkowitz was able to eliminate the pain from an auto accident that happened to occur during the time that I've
been seeing her. Great stuff!

I'm a strong believer in non-directional force AND Sharon Berkowitz. I've been her patient for nearly 10 years now, and problems that occurred from bad computer set-ups are gone, stress-induced back & neck issues resolved, and so on. She's a sypathetic chiropractor and unbelievably effective. Resolve initial problems and then go back to her for maintenance -- it will change your life! It certainly changed mine.....

I have been seeing Dr. Sharon Berkowitz for chiropractic services for about 7 years. I have used chiropractic for many ailments, including bone spurs, jaw problems, and pregnancy issues. Along with being excellent in her field of Direct Non-Force Technique Chiropractic, Dr. Berkowitz is warm, kind and sensitive to the needs of her patients.

I did not really think Chiropractors did any good but last year i was having this terrible backaches and so finally gave in and visited Dr. Sharon. She was very helpful adn within a month she had my back problems solved. She also gave me a list of excercises i needed to do to avoid the problem coming back in the future.
