Dr. Stenberg has a unique skill set that allows him to help patients with chronic health concerns. I can certainly appreciate his use of imaging technology to objectively pin-point problems of the upper cervical spine. His commitment to excellence in patient care is exemplary.


By providing science-based interventions that are geared to creating long-term solutions is the true health care model that is so often lacking. Dr. Stenberg is a true healer who deserves praise and my highest admiration for his passion in public health.

John is a tremendous resource for our community. His approach is unique, creating a very trustworthy process, and it is invaluable to have a fellow provider I can refer to without hesitation. I appreciate his thorough assessment and intervention, especially the use of manipulation as needed rather than as a must, making him effective without being disruptive. He continually reviews research to keep current and incorporates the whole person in the healing process. He is a master in his field!

Dr. Stenberg is what I consider to be a master clinician. Not only does he keep his patients as his top priority, he also is constantly learning and striving to be at the forefront of chiropractic care. Dr. Stenberg also is constantly seeking information from other specialties in other fields. Interweaving specialties together to help individual patients certainly maximizes community health. I am so glad to know Dr. Stenberg.

I am so thankful for the care I have received from Dr. Stenberg. I suffered for years with neck and back pain as I was fearful of traditional neck manipulation. After completing his protocol, I now only need occasional adjustments to keep me pain-free. He is an absolute blessing to our community, and I gladly refer my patients and friends to him who suffer from neck or back pain.
