It is better to travel well than to arrive.-Buddha
All of us are unique, so we may not all respond to the same methods of care. Because of this I offer a variety of chiropractic techniques to suit a variety of needs. These include diversified, Cox, Leander, Activator, Thompson (drop), SOT and applied kinesiology. All are custom-designed to what will best fix the problem areas, gently and comfortably. Additionally, I often use both examination and treatment protocols with quantum neurology, and Whole Body Vibration Therapy (WBV). Active release technique (ART) and Graston Technique are techniques we use to facilitate adhesion and fibrosis removal from muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This helps restore normal joint alignment and range of motion. It is also extremely helpful in repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder impingement syndrome, tennis elbow, and any form of tendonitis or chronic soft tissue injury.
False. Chiropractors are primary care doctors with extensive training in both basic and clinical sciences, and are licensed in all 50 states and many countries throughout the world. The training emphasizes diagnosis and therapy to the neuromuscular and skeletal system. Diagnosis is accomplished through history taking, physical, orthopedic and neurologic examination, and if necessary, x-rays and laboratory analysis. Therapy is performed by a wide variety of techniques including joint manipulation, healing modalities, diet and exercise. Chiropractors do not prescribe drugs or perform surgery.

In 1995, Dr. Greg Barsten gave a lecture on nutrition and cancer at The Cancer Support and Education Center in Menlo Park. I had just finished radiation treatment for my third bout with metastatic breast cancer. I asked him to work with me, and he’s been working with me ever since. Well, now it’s 2012, and I’ve turned out to be my oncologist’s poster child. I’m not saying that Dr. Barsten works miracles, but I sure feel like he’s worked one with me.
Dr. Barsten is the smartest and most intuitive care provider I have ever met. He has helped me over the last two decades with dozens of issues that MDs had absolutely no idea how to treat. In fact, I went to Dr. Barsten initially because my MD put me on so many antibiotics, they had killed all of the good gut bacteria and created a host of problems. Dr. Barsten is up on all of the most current, independent research and I would trust him with my life. He is brilliant!
I’ve been receiving annual bone density scans. The recent combination of Dr. Barsten’s guidance on diet, nutrition, specific exercises, etc., has made a huge difference, an incredible difference. My most recent scan showed I was not only able to stop the bone loss, but actually gain bone density back. This is something my OB-GYN physician called both remarkable and surprising, given that I did not take prescription medications for osteoporosis. I am so glad I listened to you. I cannot thank you enough.
Having gone to many Chiro’s over the years I can tell you that Greg is at the top of his game and is one that doesn’t simply want to snap crackle and pop you but actually get you well. His nutritional knowledge is among the best and his knowledge of supplements and herbal remedies is unbelievable.
Following Dr. Barsten’s advice after major surgery last year was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My surgeon was amazed at the speed and extent of my healing. He said at 3 weeks after surgery, I was where the typical patient is at 3 months! The benefits from following Dr. Barsten’s advice have extended far beyond healing from the procedure. I feel energetic, old blemishes on my skin have faded, my digestion has improved and overall I feel better than ever. I am grateful that I found my way to Dr. Barsten and would highly recommend him to anybody wanting to address specific health concerns or invest in their overall well being.
Dr. Barsten is our health expert. Our family has consulted with him for many years for a variety of ailments from heart disease, thyroid issues, headaches and arthritis. We always walk away inspired and armed with solutions that really work. He will often recommend therapies that are simple and free.
