WHAT IS YOUR AREA OF EXPERTISE?
We are a complete spinal corrective care and wellness clinic that focuses on the whole body and helps patients by getting to the root cause of their condition. We have great success with all spinal and extremity conditions and have helped many avoid surgery using the latest non-invasive, drug free, and natural procedures.
WHAT SERVICES DO YOU PROVIDE?
We create correct care treatment plans for each patient designed to get the best long term results for their condition. Services include passive therapy such chiropractic adjustments based on abnormal biomechanics of the spine and extremities, spinal decompression with whole body vibration, cold laser for advanced tissue healing, and manual therapy. Our care also includes active rehabilitation designed to help rejuvenate and strengthen discs, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. We also train patients how to do corrective spinal and extremity exercises at home to accelerate their care to create long-lasting results. Care also includes lifestyle and nutritional coaching to help with weight loss, increased mental clarity, and energy. We’ve helped many people with herniated, bulging, and ruptured discs; sciatica, neck, lower back, shoulder, wrist, and hand pain; numbness and tingling; headaches/migraines, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia, weight loss, scoliosis, sports injuries, auto injuries, arthritis, and symptoms with unknown causes.
WHAT PROMPTED YOUR INTEREST IN THIS PROFESSION?
A football injury in college which caused a neurological condition stemming from my lower back that caused shooting pain in my leg. The neurologist and orthopedic doctors recommended drugs and surgery, and PT was not working. I heard chiropractic care may help, and it did. 23 years later, here I am.
WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY?
To be the best spinal corrective care doctor I can be and help prevent as many spinal surgeries as possible while helping patients achieve optimal health and giving them the education to be accountable for their long term health.
WHAT MAKES YOU AND YOUR COMPANY STAND OUT FROM YOUR COMPETITION?
We utilized the most researched and proven forms of chiropractic corrective care which includes the Pettibon System, Chiropractic Biophysics techniques, and I am very excited about becoming a certified Postural Neurologist by the end of the year. My brother, Dr. Brian Berlener, has joined the clinic, bringing his specialty with the Hand and Foot Clinic.
WHAT KIND OF CHARITY INVOLVEMENT DO YOU PARTICIPATE IN?
I help support the Make a Wish Foundation with the nutritional and weight loss company I work with that has raised over 9 million dollars since 2012.
