Steven Guagliardo D.C.
Dr. Steven Guagliardo was born and raised in Staten Island, NY. At the young age of 14, Dr. Guagliardo was introduced to Chiropractic care after he suffered an injury to his neck while playing for St. Joseph by the Sea's high school baseball team.
It was his grandmother who recommended he see her family chiropractor following his injury and well, the rest was history. From that moment on this would be the beginning of a lifetime of chiropractic wellness for Dr. Guagliardo. In 1986 he graduated from The College of Staten Island with a B.S. in Biology and in 1989 Graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport, Iowa.
Dr. Steve Guagliardo has been practicing 28 years with the focus of spinal correction, wellness, and functional medicine. Dr. Steve Guagliardo practices a higher level of chiropractic care and is certified in what's known as Chiropractic BioPhysics ®. This method differs from traditional chiropractic in that it's comprehensive and data-driven, resulting in greater success for patients with all types of pain. Dr. Guagliardo's primary focus is posture correction as a means to address not just pain, but disease and organ dysfunction. Dr. Guagliardo also dedicates his practice to the treatment of chronic conditions- such as disc herniations, carpal tunnel, migraine headaches, stenosis, vertigo, insomnia/sleep disorders, knee pain, peripheral neuropathy and more.
Dr. Guagliardo's passion for natural solutions to health persisted when his son Steven was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease 15 years ago. The medical profession simply had no answers. Dr. Guagliardo was determined to help his son, and by doing so, after many years of research, education, and certifications, Dr. Guagliardo learned how to treat many other conditions naturally. Dr. Steve has logged hundreds of hours in post-graduate study of Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis and Metabolic testing and treatment under Dr. Datis Kharrazian, D.C., M.S., F.A.A.C.P., D.A.C.B.N., Completed 200 hours at Functional Medicine University and studied and mentored by Dr. Michael L.
