Dr. Goldstein was raised in New York state. He graduated from Oneonta State College, Oneonta, NY in 1979 and from Life College of Chiropractic, Marietta, GA in 1983. After graduation, Dr. Goldstein associated with another chiropractor for six years before starting his practice in Middlesex, NJ in 1990. He is a member of the Association of NJ Chiropractors.
Dr. Goldstein developed an interest in natural approaches to healthcare at an early age after his father was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The limited ability of conventional medicine to understand and treat the illness left a strong impression on Dr. Goldstein - perhaps conventional medicine is limited in its approach to chronic illness and achieving good health.
Dr. Goldstein became interested in chiropractic while at Oneonta State College. After Dr. Goldstein was injured while lifting weights, a chiropractor helped him and Dr. Goldstein decided to pursue chiropractic as a profession. Dr. Goldstein's interest in a natural approach continued in chiropractic college when an instructor used a therapy called Applied Kinesiology to treat him. Based on the applied kinesiology examination, the instructor recommended dietary changes and nutritional supplements.The recommendations helped his sinus and skin problems that had bothered Dr. Goldstein since childhood. This experience led Dr. Goldstein to become certified in applied kinesiology while in still in chiropractic college and continue with additional postgraduate studies. Dr. Goldstein is a member of the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK).
In 1993, Dr. Goldstein completed postgraduate courses to become a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP). Since then, he has volunteered as a sports chiropractor at numerous beach volleyball tournaments and road races and continues to help many active people in his office.
Today, after many years in practice,
Dr. Goldstein continues to read, take seminars and pursue clinical excellence
by keeping up with any information that might be helpful to his patients.
In 2000, Dr. Goldstein completed seminars in Functional
Laboratory Assessment and a new system for treating patients called
Torque Release Technique. This technique is a modern approach to chiropractic
assessment that won its founder, Dr. Jay Holder, Florida Chiropractic Researcher
of the Year in 1995. Dr. Holder is among a group of practitioners that developed
Auriculotherapy, a Chinese system for
treating pain, internal disorders and addictions by treating small points
on the ear. Dr. Goldstein completed courses in Auriculotherapy in 2000.
In 2006, Dr. Goldstein attended seminars in Functional Endocrinology and Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis. These courses have expanded his ability to recognize how subtle alterations in blood chemistry can manifest itself in non pathological endocrine disturbances. In 2009, Dr. Goldstein attended a course on Neurotransmitters and the Brain. This course highlighted how the delicate balance of amino acids and important nutrient cofactors can affect neurological signs and symptoms that all health practitioners see on a daily basis.
He also took Seminars in a new methodology in treating muscle and tendon problems. One was called Graston Technique, and the other SASTM technique. Both were developed by the same person, David Graston. The basis of both techniques is to use an instrument to break up scar tissue and adhesions within the muscle or within the fascia covering a muscle that might be causing restrictions in movement or pain. Dr. Goldstein uses the SASTM (Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization) tools because he thinks they are easier to use for the practitioner and less intimidating to the patient. He has been using the instruments successfully to treat tendonitis, carpal tunnel, nerve entrapment syndromes, rotator cuff injuries, acute and chronic neck and lower back disc problems, and various other conditions.
