10 Things You Didn’t Know About New Path Chiropractic

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

source We love getting to know our patients. But how much do YOU really know about our practice? We’ve set up a little list of fun facts about who we are and what we do so you can get to know us, too!

1. Our Greenwich Plaza office was destined to be the home of NPC.

enter site When Dr. Steve & his wife, Dianna, first moved to Jupiter, they drove through the neighborhoods scouting out the area & daydreamed about making it the place for his practice. When he spotted the colorful buildings of Greenwich Plaza, Dr. Steve pointed them out and decided the space would be perfect for his future office. Three years later, the opportunity presented itself to make that a reality… and here we are!

2. “Crack” isn’t on the menu.

One of the things we hear most often from first time patients or those new to chiropractic is that they fear getting “cracked.” Sadly, many have had negative experiences with practitioners who take a “one size fits all” approach to their patients.

Many times, getting “cracked” [a.k.a. manual adjustment] isn’t even the best approach to resolving an issue. Dr. Steve relies heavily on A.R.T. [Active Release Technique], which is a muscle-based therapy that can alleviate many injuries and pains without the crack! Regardless of whether or not you need a manual adjustment, Dr. Steve is conservative and careful with patients, ensuring that they get exactly what they need during a visit.

3. We offer massage therapy!

Did you know that we have a wonderful massage therapist available for all kinds of therapeutic massage? Dawn has more than 20 years experience and is an absolute pleasure to have as a part of our team. We’re happy to have her therapy be part of the services we offer.

Book your appointment at your next visit and give your muscles a treat!

4. Dr. Steve was almost a vet!

For many years, Dr. Steve hoped to become a veterinarian. Upon injuring his back when he was 18 and needing chiropractic care, he decided he loved what chiropractors could offer to patients and made the switch in his career path. Had he not sustained an injury, he may have been working on your pet instead of you!

He still loves animals {especially dogs} and we welcome friendly furry buddies in the office. In fact, we have one here all the time!

5. We see patients young and old.

We really mean it. Our youngest patient was a tender 7 weeks old and our oldest in their 90’s! Dr. Steve uses safe techniques that can benefit people of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels. Little ones can benefit from chiropractic, too. In fact, there are tons of reasons why you may want to consider regular chiropractic visits for your kiddos. You can find more research and information on chiropractic for kids here and here, or call us with any questions you may have.

6. You’re getting the same care as the pros.

Dr. Steve has had the opportunity to work on all kinds of athletes: Marlins baseball players, golf professionals, CrossFit athletes and even UFC fighters! You can feel good knowing that you’re in the same hands as the pros.

7. Your assessment begins when you walk in the door.

Here’s a little secret: You’re being assessed the second you step foot in the office. Part of Dr. Steve’s approach to treatment is watching your movement and how it could be a contributing factor to aches, pains and injuries. You can tell a lot about a person just by watching their natural movement!

Don’t be nervous; seeing how you truly move is the best way to start your treatment process. Using the Functional Movement Systems assessment is another way Dr. Steve can evaluate what’s going on in your body.

8. Your chiropractor is a quadruple threat.

So, how much education does it take to be a chiropractor? Lots. Three Bachelors degrees and a Doctorate, to be exact. Dr. Steve’s degrees cover Food Science & Human Nutrition, Anatomy and Health & Wellness. Don’t forget the Doctor of Chiropractic degree, which makes it official!

9. Some patients get a 2-for-1 adjustment.

Did you know that pregnant mamas can benefit greatly from chiropractic care? Not only is chiropractic safe for moms-to-be, but it can also help with many of the unpleasant symptoms that come with pregnancy. When you come in for a visit, your care will help you AND your baby… sounds like a good deal! A healthy mom means a happy baby!

10. We like to eat!

We are big foodies around here. We also believe that nutrition is a big part of feeling your best. With a degree in Food Science & Human Nutrition, Dr. Steve can set you up with a healthy eating plan to assist you in achieving your weight and fitness goals. Together with his wife [who writes her own cooking blog with a mix of healthy and decadent treats], New Path Chiropractic is working on creating and sharing healthy recipes through our social media platforms.

We also carry our very own brand of non-dairy protein powder, No Udder Protein, which is sold in the office, in several CrossFit gyms, and a online!

Well… that’s New Path Chiropractic in a nutshell! We hope you are able to come in and check out our facilities for yourself. We always welcome visitors and questions, so don’t hesitate to give us a call or stop in for a chat.
