The Doctor

Dr. Stephen J. Svastits, D.C., C.C.S.P., I.D.E., F.A.F.I.C.C.


Dr. Svastits was first introduced to Chiropractic when he was 19 years old. He was a track and field athlete as a shot putter and hammer thrower at Cal State Long Beach. He was a 1984 Olympic hopeful. Unfortunately, he suffered a serious weight lifting injury that ceased any opportunity for the Olympics. Low back surgery was the outcome. After the surgery, conventional rehab was unsuccessful. Family and friends suggested a Chiropractor to help him function normally again. At that time, he was referred to Dr. Isador Iden, a practicing Chiropractor and an adjunct professor at Cleveland Chiropractic College. Many positive changes were made to his spine and it allowed him to function normally again in his day-to-day activities. He continued to see other Chiropractors throughout the years for spinal care, rehabilitation and pain relief. Years of pain-free results without medications inspired him to become a Chiropractor. The rest is history…
