DR. STEVEN BACALL
Owner; Chiropractor; BrainCore Neurofeedback Provider; Lover of dogs, his family, and babies.
Dr. Steven Bacall is a lifelong New Jersey resident. He attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in history with minors in both anatomy and philosophy. Dr. Steve was on his way to becoming a veterinarian when, after an encounter with traditional medicine for an “indeterminate viral infection” he realized there must be a better healthcare model available than just drugs and surgery. Through much research, Dr. Steve learned of chiropractic care. He was immediately drawn to the concept of the body as a self-healing organism and after learning of chiropractic’s century-long track record of helping people regain their health through all-natural means, he was hooked. In 1997 Dr. Steve graduated from Life Chiropractic College in Atlanta, Ga. and after marrying his beautiful bride Kerri he began practice in 1998 and has been going ever since.
Dr. Steve is board-certified to practice chiropractic healthcare through four separate national examinations as well as state examinations and he has also received board certification in the application of physiologic therapeutics. Additionally, he has earned post-graduate certification in whiplash injury diagnosis and treatment through the Spine Research Institute of San Diego, as well as certification in chiropractic utilization review through the New York Chiropractic College Centre for Postgraduate and Continuing Education. Dr. Steve prides himself on being a different kind of healthcare provider than you may be used to, and his goal is to help as many people as he can truly improve their health and their lives. Dr. Steve focuses on unlocking the body's self-healing potential through chiropractic adjustments and ensuring the body has the right support to achieve this goal through diet modification and nutritional supplementation.
