Meet The Team
Dr. 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. Johnson the author of "What Do You Do When Medicines Don't Work".

Dr. Guagliardo is a big believer in education and the belief that the application of knowledge is power. With this attitude, he is driven to educate his clients and people in his community that there is HOPE to their chronic conditions.

Maria - Chiropractic Assistant and office manager
This October, I will be celebrating my 20th year working with Dr. Steve as his Chiropractic Assistant/Office Manager. What began as a part time job while my children were in school became a full time labor of love. I have always been a fervent believer in the healing power of Chiropractic as a patient since early childhood; however, seeing its positive effects on so many patients over the course of these years has turned me into an advocate. My goal is to help people see that they do not have to rely on pain killers and surgery as a cure for all. Choosing a natural way to heal and get out of pain, while correcting your problem, is a far better choice. In addition, to Chiropractic care, our office has been counseling patients regarding their Nutrition for many years with great success. There is nothing better than seeing patients who are committed to their programs coming into our office with huge smiles and loose clothing! I, personally, have experienced both. The programs we offer are individualized for each person’s health issues and goals. No cookie-cutter programs for our patients … and that makes all the difference!
