About Us

Dr. Jeffrey Block founded Block Sports Chiropractic and Physical Therapy in Smithtown in 1993. He soon opened a second location in Selden, intended for his brother Dr. Richard Block, who was getting ready to graduate from chiropractic college and join his brother in practice. Since then, Dr. Jeff has switched to the Selden office and Dr. Rick works out of our Smithtown location. We work with physical therapists to offer our communities a complete healing experience.

Healing From the Inside Out

Our goal is to teach people that health comes from within, rather than from outside intervention. Staying healthy is the superior choice to seeking treatment once you’re sick. Therefore, we’re here to get you out of pain and help you prevent future problems from affecting your life.

Determining Your Specific Needs

The practitioners at both of our locations are trained in different areas and provide a range of complementary services. Our first goal is to figure out why problems exist in your body. Then, if we determine that we can help you, we’ll discuss the options you have to regain your health. Rather than just focusing on making you feel better,
we address the cause of your pain.

The patients we see are often seeking help for

  • Family health
  • Geriatric health
  • No-fault injury
  • Pain management
  • Sports injury
  • Weight issues
  • Workers’ compensation
  • And much more!

Hands-on Health Care

There are different types of chiropractors, just like not all medical doctors treat you the same. At our office, we treat everyone like they’re an elite athlete that needs to operate at their greatest potential. We use hands-on health care, meaning that we use our hands to help heal you.

Our chiropractors use adjustments, soft tissue work, specialized tables, postural correction and other tools to help you. The physical therapists at the practice use hands-on manual methods, supervising your exercises and applying all modalities necessary to help you.
