The Art of Healing is Alive and Well! My partners and I founded the Healing Arts Center of Philadelphia to counteract the cookie cutter approach to healthcare delivery. We named it The Healing Arts Center because every practitioner on the team has a wide repertoire of integrative techniques and treatments to draw upon. We believe the art of healing is in the creative application of techniques, and the mix should always be fresh, responding to the demands of the moment. After all, we believe every patient is unique and every day presents a new challenge that demands our creativity.

If I’m on your team of healers, it means I’m committed to taking time with you; not only on your first visit, but every visit, to get the details about how you’re doing. That will tell me specifically what you need on that particular day.

According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, "chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health." The term “chiropractic adjustment” describes many ways of using carefully directed and controlled pressure and/or force to restore the spine to a more normal position and motion. When spinal function is recovered, overall health improves.

Practicing since 1987, I combine several methods of chiropractic manipulation with Active Release Technique and/or CranioSacral therapy to relieve pain, pressure, spasm and to facilitate the healing process.

“I never feel rushed at the Healing Arts Center. Dr. Silverman takes his time with me every time, asking specific questions so he can tailor his approach to my needs that day. I always leave feeling whole again.”
