Michael J. Kostas – Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Michael Kostas had an eventful childhood growing up on a horse ranch in Pennsylvania. He was very active in gymnastics and wrestling. At the age of 15, he sustained a back injury and his father took Michael to an orthopedic physician. He was diagnosed with a dislocated back and was told he would never play sports again. The orthopedic doctor recommended Michael have surgery; his grandfather disagreed with this assessment and then took him to a Chiropractor. To everyone’s amazement, he made a quick recovery just 30 days after beginning his spinal adjustments. He then quickly resumed his competing in school gymnastics and became the team captain. This experience made a huge impact on Michael and inspired him to become a Chiropractor so he could help others with their heath issues.

Dr. Kostas’s goal as a Chiropractor is for each patient to obtain optimal health. He utilizes various Chiropractic techniques and patient education to help his patients achieve this important goal. He educates each patient on crucial subjects such as proper nutrition, correct posture and proper sleeping habits just to name a few.

While some chiropractors use just one technique on every patient, Dr. Kostas uses MANY different techniques, depending on the needs of each individual patient. He is now known for his extensive knowledge of different techniques. Please refer to our “techniques” page for details on this information.
