About Dr. Starler:

Dr. Suzan Starler is a board licensed chiropractor and Program Director for the OsteoBlast Osteoporosis Rehabilitation Program at Pacific Coast Sports Medicine. In addition to cutting-edge rehabilitative modalities, Dr. Suzan offers caring support coupled with the knowledge and experience to work with patients so they can maximize their therapeutic benefit in the least amount of time possible. This may include advanced exercise technologies, nutritional intervention, individualized education, as needed.

Working closely with her patients, Dr. Suzan develops streamlined and easy to follow plans that bring even the most challenging cases to a greater level of functional capacity, restoring her patients’ quality of life. She found, after many years of clinical practice, that even the best healing program would ultimately fall short of its goals unless the barriers to healing were handled one at a time, in a priority order as determined by the body. To this day, she continues to follow this very effective and successful holistic approach.

At Pacific Coast Sports Medicine Dr. Suzan, and her esteemed colleagues, offer patients “one-stop shopping” for their health care needs. Compassion, patient empowerment, and whole body physical and nutritional support are the main tenets for providing patients with the tools necessary to achieve their personal health goals.

Current cutting-edge treatments at PCSM address symptoms relating to osteoporosis, herniated discs, spinal stenosis (and other degenerative spinal conditions), osteoarthritis, and arm and leg-related pain (e.g., shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, hip, knee, ankle, and foot). Patient on site rehabilitation is offered in our state-of-the-art gym, and includes mechanical resistance exercises, and spinal decompression. Dr. Suzan additionally utilizes nutritional counseling to assist patients in attaining maximum results through personalized nutrition programs, McKenzie Therapies to facilitate a patient’s ability to self-treat with specific, easy to perform home exercises, and Quantum Neurology™ protocols to enhance nervous system repair.

 
The top three messages Dr. Suzan communicates to her patients are:
 
There is always hope!
 
Healing takes time, consistency, and self-discipline!

For the best results, commit yourself completely to your program!
