Careful, Quality Spine Care with Chiropractic Neurology Specialization


There is no greater service a health care provider can give than to help Patients prevent those conditions they otherwise would have to treat.

A common Chiropractic approach is directed toward organizing the patient's participation in their own recovery and health from the initial chiropractic treatment of a spine pain, health condition, or complaint, to a structured preventative program. The specific focus of this clinic is on gaining a thorough, expert understanding of the patient’s spine and nerve system function, and their environmental, lifestyle and social considerations. Careful, specific Chiropractic spinal corrections and recommendations are then provided.

Having practiced actively in Monterey for over 40 years, while also dedicated to being one of the best Chiropractors in the Monterey and central coast area, Dr. Martin's quality reputation in this community is best exemplified by his extensive professional background and qualifications. He is considered to be one of the best Gonstead chiropractors, and an expert in chiropractic neurology, and committed to improving the quality of his own chiropractic clinical skills and the profession of chiropractors as a whole.

In addition to his patient treatment practice, Dr. Martin has maintained a Chiropractic Expert, Chiropractic Qualified Medical Examiner- Neurology practice in Monterey since 1991. His opinions on Chiropractic, Neurology, spine pain, and knowledge of the healthy function of the spine and body are valued and sought out in a careful understanding and resolving of patient's complex medical conditions.  

Sir Francis Bacon, Father of Modern Genetics, said "To expect different results, we must both see and act in different ways." No where is this more true than in the area of improving the quality of healthy function of the body, providing the best chiropractic recovery and relief of spine pain and its effects, and structuring the best preventative health care methods. Increased numbers of people today understand that health care should develop not merely the relief from, or lessening of the effects of disease, spine pain or poor function, but should establish or bring out the healthy function of the full spectrum of the person in body, mind, and what is called spirit. 

Dr. Martin's more specific, careful, and expert approach, which employs the Gonstead Technique, Palmer method, Chiropractic Neurology, and skills as a Chiropractic Expert and Qualified Medical Examiner in the Monterey and Central California areas, will be more likely to provide a faster and more powerful quality of improvement in your overall health and function, with relief of spinal aches or spine pain complaints, while still using the natural healing abilities of the body, mind, and what is understood as spirit.
