Dr. Lipetz

David Lipetz

Physical Therapist

David Lipetz graduated from Rutgers University and received his graduate degree from New York Medical College in Valhalla N.Y. He is dual board certified in spinal disorders and clinical orthopedics. He has been serving patients in the Garden City, Nassau County and Mineola area for 21 years. David was inspired to become a physical therapist from being a division I athlete and exposure to sports medicine daily. He was incredibly intriguing in how his team doctors would keep the athletes whole by maintaining the human body both physically and mentally. Additionally, he knew that he wanted to work in an environment in which he had direct one on one contact with other people that would result in an immediate change in their daily lives. To him, this was the most powerful motivating factor in choosing this profession. David started his professional career in Los Angeles, CA where he had a private practice and was an adjunct clinical professor for the DPT program at the University of Southern California. He enjoys incorporating “Biohacking” into his practice. Biohacking is the practice of managing your own biology using medical, nutritional, physical, or electronic techniques. His locations are now utilizing Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy and Radial Shockwave Therapy in conjunction with diagnostic ultrasound imaging. David currently lives in Long Island, N.Y., where he runs both the Garden City and Syosset locations. He is also the creator of RIPS which is an educational tool on injury management for doctors and trainers. RIPS is utilized across the country. In his spare time, David enjoys spending quality time with his family and watching his daughter compete in elite gymnastics throughout the country.

Dr. Victoria

Doctor of Physical Therapy

Dr. Victoria graduated from SUNY with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science and received her Doctor of Physical Therapy from Stony Brook University. Throughout her education she had four clinical internships with direct patient care, all within various physical therapy settings and specialties. These experiences allowed her to develop and expand her treatment skills for a wide variety of patient populations. Dr. Victoria was inspired to become a physical therapist growing up as an ice hockey player she has always embraced and valued the idea of teamwork. Linked with her desire to be a part of the healthcare field, physical therapy was a perfect career path, allowing her to merge two of her passions. She believes physical therapy can only be successful if there is a cohesive relationship between the therapist and patient, working as a team to meet a common goal. During her educational experience was when she was introduced to the multifaceted aspects of physical therapy. This truly reinforced her passion for the field, allowing her to constantly practice clinical reasoning, analyze physiological movement and develop social relationships with both colleagues and patients. To Dr. Victoria, the best part about being a physical therapist and treating patients is being able to follow them throughout their rehab journey and observe their progress. There is no better feeling than knowing what you are doing is objectively making a difference in another individuals’ life, helping them reach their movement goals and positively impacting their quality of life. She has interest and is a LSCT BIG certified therapist. This certification provided her with additional skills and techniques to successfully treat individuals with Parkinson’s disease and maximize their functional potential.

Our Approach

What To Expect

During your 1st visit, our providers will hear the story of what brings you in, perform a new patient examination to determine the root cause of your problem, and briefly summarize what was found.

The examination consists of motion tests, palpation, reflex testing, and muscle strength, to help identify dysfunction in movement patterns and poor muscle engagement.

Report of Findings

During your second visit, your provider will recap what was found in the examination, discuss a solution, review what your personal contribution to care will be, and begin treatment on that day.

Ongoing

On each subsequent visit, our providers will perform routine assessments to ensure you are tracking with your treatment plan – and provide treatment.

Treatment visits typically consist of a combination of:

  • Chiropractic Adjustments: Restores, maintains, and optimizes human function by eliminating interference within the joint and soft tissue thus restoring the synergy between your joints, nerves, and muscles. Chiropractic adjustments are only available during sessions with a chiropractor.
  • Integrated Muscle and Joint Therapy (IMJT): An advanced, active form of soft tissue treatment that effectively integrates the mind, muscular, skeletal, and neurological systems to achieve optimum balance throughout the body. IMJT is a patented technique available exclusively at LifeClinic.
  • Rehabilitation: Carefully selected exercises and activities used in a specific sequence in order to reinforce changes made with the adjustment and IMJT. Rehabilitation retrains the body’s “movement habits”
