With a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences, Dr. St. Thomas works with a wide variety of athletes including runners, bodybuilders, crossfit competitors and ballet dancers.
Dr. St. Thomas is a credentialed MDT Practitioner, which makes him the only Credentialed MDT Chiropractic Physician in New York City. This specialty helps to identify, reduce and resolve mechanical problems in both the spine and extremities. It is an effective and conservative approach to addressing common spinal injuries that people battle on a daily basis.
“This technique is powerful in both communicating vital information to my patients and helping them become directly involved in their progress,” says Dr. St. Thomas. “It is equally as empowering as it is effective.”
In addition, Dr. St. Thomas utilizes a specific blend of soft tissue techniques, such as functional movement assessments, myofascial release technique (MRT), active release technique (ART), Graston Technique, RockTape applications and corrective exercise to create a well-rounded experience. He also specializes in a method known as Functional Movement Technique (FMT), which combines the use of specific myofascial manipulation and RockTape.
Because he is also a Fitness Nutritional Specialist (FNS), Dr. St. Thomas can provide nutritional guidance that can be easily incorporated into your daily life to give you more energy and mental clarity without making you feel as though you are on a diet or giving up what you enjoy.
“If health is a state of harmony within the body,” says Dr. St. Thomas, wellness is the habit that creates it.”
