Dr. Greenberg has a deep respect for those in pain having suffered a severe low back injury as a result of a surfing accident while attending Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California. For most of his remaining time at chiropractic school, he suffered severe, debilitating pain. Some of the best orthopedists and neurologists in the country tried to aid him to no avail. He found the same results with the numerous chiropractors he subsequently sought out, although the DCs did manage to produce at least a measure of symptomatic relief. Even so, Dr. Greenberg's prognosis was grim. "After 9 months of being worked on, I was unable to stand up for longer than 2 minutes," he says.
Dr. Greenberg decided he was going nowhere fast on these paths to healing, so he took matters into his own hands. Unable to engage in any physical activities, he had plenty of time to do research in the hope of finding the answers he needed. Soaking up knowledge from a couple of his forward-thinking professors, along with pouring over stacks of books and journal articles from the fields of chiropractic, orthopedics, neurology and physical therapy, Dr. Greenberg, over a span of 2 years, developed an approach to care that ultimately freed him from the pain and put his frame in stronger, better stabilized shape than before the accident. At that point, he stopped seeing his injury as misfortune, but rather as a godsend.
Dr. Greenberg has been freeing people of pain in private practice since 2001. As a chiropractor with experience, he is committed to promoting optimal health and well being for his patients.
Dr. Greenberg uses a "whole person approach." This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbances or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that will optimize the conditions for normal function. He not only looks at the spine, he evaluates a patient's entire body and treats accordingly, because all the parts affect one another's condition. Using this unique system, Dr. Greenberg is able to help his patients accelerate and/or maintain their journeys to good health.

"Thanks to all the extensive research and hard work I did in my quest for healing, I ended up with an in depth understanding of the body. Mainly, I came to appreciate that there's a lot more to the human body than just the spine; that also affecting health and performance are extremity and soft-tissue mechanics."
