Professional Statement

  • Dr. Lev Kalika has revolutionized the methodology of treating back pain and other motor disorders by introducing Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) at his Upper East Side practice. The results of this new method are quicker, more powerful and longer lasting.
  • Kalika developed a strong passion for movement and body mechanics when his brother opened the first body building gym in their home city of Odessa. Kalika was a medical student at university when body building was beginning to surface in the post Soviet Ukraine. As literature was scarce, Kalika taught himself English in order to read the imported body building magazines and study everything he could find on the culture of body motion. He was very interested in the role of the Central Nervous System and how different muscle groups interacted with each other and the rest of the body.
  • Dr.Kalika is the first doctor in US to bring ground breaking technological approach of Virtual Reality rehabilitation to patients outside of military.
