Our practice focuses not just on getting you out of pain, but also correcting the cause of the problem! With our focus on the correction, there is a much less chance for your condition to relapse. Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, Pembroke Chiropractic emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place. Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness, if they could. This is one of the main reasons for the big surge in the popularity of our wellness center.
Our care has been very successful in helping patients like yourself with a variety of conditions from chronic low back and neck pain, headaches, migraines, sciatica, slipped discs, pregnancy issues, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, auto, work and sport injuries as well. We can also provide information about improving your diet, creating a healthier workplace, and increasing the overall quality of your health.
We work with people of ALL ages from the new born to the young at heart. Here is what a few of our patients had to say:
“I have been a regular patient for the past 17 years now and I can count on one hand how many times I've been sick over those years. I stopped taking medicine of any sort, even if I had the flu or a cold, I would just go see Dr. Soccio, get an adjustment and I would feel better within 3days. I can't even explain how this has changed my life, my mood, and my happiness over these years! It has had such an effect on me and my body that when my son was born, I immediately had him adjusted as well! Thanks for the wonderful years of well being and keeping me straight!!" Sergie Ventura
"Thank you for your loving heart and commitment to healing. Headaches, backaches and fatigue are now history." Carla Johnson
“My job is on an aircraft, pushing and pulling heavy carts and getting bounced around by turbulence. I have been going to Dr. Mark since 1994 and I'll continue as long as I have this job. I always walk out of his office feeling 10 times better than I did when I walked in. I even take my 76 year old Mom to him. After she suffered a Massive stroke, he helped her Tremendously. I recommend him to ANYONE who has any health problems.” – Kathy Houston

An amazing thing happened to me one day when I was working in a supermarket. One night I was helping to unload a truck that had just come in. As I turned away to carry some stock out to the floor, a pallet of bleach came crashing down and struck me on the head, my neck and back. I wasn’t knocked unconscious, but I was really dazed and confused. Not wanting to make a big deal out of the situation, I quickly bounced back up, brushed myself off and got back to work. But as the night progress, I began to experience a great deal of discomfort in my neck and back. Still not wanting to make a big deal of it, I just took a couple aspirins.
I got home late that night and was really feeling sore and stiff, so I figured a hot shower would loosen things up and a good night sleep and I will be all better in the morning. Well when I woke up the next morning the pain was unbearable and I could no longer pull my macho ego about not being in pain.
My mother called our family doctor and drove me up to his office. The doctor sat across from me, behind his desk and told me what was wrong with me with out ever touching me. As I sat there in his office, something really strange occurred to me. Here was a person that my family trusted with their health and on his desk was an ashtray full of cigarette butts, and a tall 7-eleven coffee. As I left with his recommended prescriptions, I thought something’s not right with this picture.
After a few weeks of taking drugs and several other “Special” doctors who gave me stronger drugs, that did nothing more then mask the symptoms, at best, a friend of mine literally dragged me into see her chiropractor, Dr. Larry Johnson. My experience was so profound, that it changed my life forever. Not only did I feel better quickly with regards to the injuries from my accident, but I noticed that my allergies got better, I stopped going for allergy shot, (which I was getting two a week for 15 years) and I stopped getting bronchitis every year!
I was already a licensed Aircraft Mechanic working at a small airfield on Long Island and also was working at Key Food Stores stocking shelves. I was also going to college part time so that I could learn more about aviation electronics but when I discovered just how powerful and life changing Chiropractic had been for me, I quit my job at the airport and the supermarket and went back to school to become a Chiropractor!
