After a horse fell with me, my back and hips were injured (the horse won) and I had been in a great deal of pain for several months. I started seeing Dr. Stephen Perlstein on February 26, 1986. It took a while, but with regular adjustments and (some) exercise, Steve got me walking in a straight line and relatively pain free. I have continued to see him regularly for adjustments, and for all of the many times I’ve done something stupid that caused back, hip, arm, and shoulder problems, headaches, etc.

I have a hard time relaxing and getting loose enough to get a good adjustment and, as I age, it doesn’t get any easier. Monika Perlstein, a licensed massage therapist, works in the office with her husband, and has made my adjustments much easier. After a wonderful, relaxing hour with her, I know that Steve is going to be able to get me adjusted.

Dr. Perlstein was not the first chiropractor I had gone to. My first back and neck injuries happened in college. After 26 years of working with Dr. Perlstein, I can honestly say he is one of the best in his field and Monika in hers. If I did not have him in my world, my life would not be as comfortable as it is. I strongly recommend him to anyone and know that his ability to adjust and care for sports injuries and any other kind of hurts is superlative. From little children to us senior citizens, Steve makes life better. Both Monika and Dr. Perlstein honestly care deeply for their patient’s whole-body well being and will do whatever it takes to “fix” the problems. They have always been there for me, even coming in on days off or taking me at the last minute.
