An established chiropractor since 1980, Dr. Alan P. Sherr founded the Northport Wellness Center in 1995 as a holistic health care practice that takes a vitalistic approach to health care and encourages individuals to take responsibility for their own physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. The mission of the Northport Wellness Center is to “direct people to the realization that life and healing come from within and that, ultimately, the promotion and maintenance of health is superior to the treatment of disease.”
Dr. Sherr truly enjoys assisting others along their path to optimal health. A champion of the philosophy of chiropractic, which emphasizes the uniqueness of each individual and views health as a dynamic process involving the body, mind and heart rather than merely an absence of disease symptoms, Dr. Sherr embraces each of his patient’s journey toward optimal health and well being as a personal one.
In his practice, Dr. Sherr cares for healthy children and adults who seek health care maintenance, as well as those with chronic illness, musculoskeletal illness, autism and/or other developmental or physical disabilities. Dr. Sherr approaches all of his patients with knowledge and compassion. He recognizes that all individuals and families present with unique symptoms and experiences and treats them with a plan that meets their specific goals and needs.
As a result of decades of experience collaborating with other health care professionals, Dr. Sherr has skills and insight in many treatment modalities that extend far beyond chiropractic. Dr. Sherr is also the founder of Hyperbaric Medical Solutions, an independent provider of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to individuals who are challenged with various conditions preventing them from experiencing optimal health. Hyperbaric Medical Solutions has three New York offices, two located on Long Island in Woodbury and Medford, and one in New York City—the first free-standing facility providing hard chamber HBOT in Manhattan. Dr. Sherr founded Hyperbaric Medical Solutions because he believes in giving individuals every opportunity to heal and recover and to live an optimal life.

I’ve suffered from a pinched nerve with neck pain that radiated into my fingers for well over a year. I went from one doctor to another to no avail. I recently moved to Northport and was referred to the Northport Wellness Center. Dr Sherr recommended 3-D Spinal Decompression as part of my treatment program. His associate, Dr Reid performs the treatment. Dr Reid performed 2 treatments without charge to ensure that I would receive some benefit. After the first 2 treatments the numbness and pain in my fingers began to subside! I am really thrilled with the immediate results and I have signed up for 10 additional treatments!!!
