Providing patient specific chiropractic care, nutritional advice, and specialized myofascial release each patient is treated on an individual basis with the intention to help everyone reach their maximum potential.
As a licensed chiropractor, Dr. Stern uses chiropractic care to help his patients overcome many types of injuries. Chiropractic comes from the Greek root words meaning "practice with the hands". Founded in the late 1980's, the original chiropractic founder, D.D. Palmer, recognized that there was a connection between spinal health and the optimum function of the nervous system.
Along with Dr. Stern's in-depth analysis of the spine, he also emphasizes alignment of the extremities. Dr. Stern feels strongly that to achieve balance within the spine, the body as a whole needs to be moving as a complete unit. To ensure optimum body mechanics, Dr. Stern is a strong proponent of treating the muscles of the body incorporating techniques such as myofascial release and deep tissue therapy as well manual joint release. He also employs the latest advance in ultrasound therapy, micro current electric therapy to facilitate the healing response, as well as the ageless therapy of cupping. Each patient is treated individually and no one treatment will be the same.
Early in his chiropractic career, Dr. Stern recognized that if people were going to achieve optimum health, it was vital to incorporate nutrition in his practice. As a certified clinical nutritionist, Dr. Stern utilizes specific blood tests, allergy tests, hair analysis, and urinalysis to acquire the information needed to design specific programs for his patients. Through the alteration of food choice or the help of nutritional supplements for support, recommendations are made to better the health of his patients.
For an individual to achieve the health and wellness they seek, they need to become active participants in their own healing process. Each person will be given exercise regimens to perform at their home or gym to help assist what Dr. Stern does in the practice. Whether it is an ambitious program of weight training for his athletic patients or a moderate gentle program using light stretches, isometric contractions, and light therapy bands, there is always something that can be done by all to help lessen their pain and strengthen their body.
