Dr. Matthew Paterna

“In 1996, when I was 24 years old, I was given a prescription for Oxycontin® by my family doctor for sciatica. She told me that this ‘miracle drug’ was non-addictive and would cure my problem.

After three months, I learned the dangers of taking medications for pain as I became addicted. Not only did the drug not fix my sciatica, but it caused several other health issues, including anxiety. Fortunately, my father, who was seeing a chiropractor, convinced me to come with him on one of his visits.

My experience with this chiropractor transformed my life!”

Dr. Paterna didn’t feel he was born to be a chiropractor. “I was born to play third base for the New York Yankees. Thankfully, my inability to hit a curveball and my love for chiropractic have allowed me to help thousands of people and family members of all ages get well.”

“I wouldn’t change my decision to become a chiropractor for any other profession. I simply love and live what I do!” Dr. Matthew Paterna

Dr. CJ Cameron

Dr. CJ Cameron has been under chiropractic care since he was an infant. His mother experienced the benefits of care and felt it was necessary for her newborn child to see a chiropractor for wellness.

As a result, Dr. CJ rarely got sick in his youth and only went to the doctor for physicals. Having an athletic background, chiropractic care has kept him healthy and injury free from pee-wee football to collegiate lacrosse. “I never missed a game and I am forever grateful to the profession of chiropractic.”

He was so grateful he decided to become a chiropractor himself and share this gift with the world.
