I was definitely skeptical that this would work after years of lower back pain, PT, and cortisone shots but I felt better after one visit. My lower back...

My lower back pain is significantly improved as a result of Dr. Brokstein's expertise. He takes his time, explains everything, and does not keep patients...

Dr. Brokstein has been monumental in my physical recovery. I came in with a few back and heck problems and slowly but surely every time I leave his love I feel better. I don't feel that I am going to visit a doctor, I feel as though I am visiting s friend. I never have to wait last my appointment time like other Doctors make you wait. I also appreciate that he is flexible with scheduling as my line of work changes schedules the way it does. Thanks again and I look forward to the care.

Dr. Brokstein is phenomenal! I am a woman in my thirties who had several complaints. I had very sharp pains in the top of my feet after being on them for hours at work as an RN. I also had neck and upper back pain. I had never been to a chiropractor before and was very apprehensive. After doing some research I came across Dr. Brokstein. I have been going to him for the last few months and have noticed a big difference! After my first adjustment my neck pain was totally gone and had much better range of motion. The sharp foot pain in my feet was gone as well. I had been seeing a podiatrist for over two years and after receiving custom orthotics my foot pain was not any better. I stopped going to the podiatrist after she wanted me to have a test called an EMG which is semi-invasive and very painful. I decided to find another option. Dr. Brokstein had me fitted with a custom orthotic/foot levelers that feels so much better than the one the podiatrist gave me. The orthotic the podiatrist gave me was so hard it was like cement and didn't allow my feet to flex a little when walking. Also Dr. Brokstein has helped me with my acid reflux, headaches, and sinuses. I am now a patient of his for life! I love that he can perform adjustments without any x-rays as well. He is also just so nice and very informative. I highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much Dr. Brokstein!

After being to many chiropractors in the area, I'm confident in saying that Dr. Brokstein is the most knowledgable and caring chiropractor I have ever been to. With him you get individualized care that I have not received at any other office,.which is really important for consistent progress. After being seen by him for just a little over a month most of my symptoms are already gone. This is something that couldn't be done by the 5+ chiropractors I have been to several months at a time. I would strongly recommend Dr. Brokstein to anyone seeking chiropractic care. My only regret is that I hadn't come to him sooner.

The greatest critic is a colleague in your own profession. I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Brokstein for many, many years. When I visit to south Jersey, one of the highlights is an adjustment from Dr. Russell . He is a a highly skilled, caring, dedicated adjuster who has taken the time to master his technique. The people of Freehold are blessed and lucky to have such a fine, loving and remarkable doctor and human being. I am proud to call him my friend. If you want an extraordinary chiropractic experience, then call and make an appointment with Dr. Brokstein, today. You'll thank me for it.

Best Chiropractor in the Monmouth County Area! If you have any doubts, don't! Dr. Brokstein sincerely goes beyond the call of duty for his patients! Through my experience, not may doctors take the time to truly explain what chiropractic is all about. Before I met Dr. Brokstein, I had the impression that chiropractors just crack your neck and back. Through Dr. B, I now know that I can live a healthy life, go about my normal everyday activities, and heal without drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is now a part of my daily routine in maintaining my health. I have more energy and sleep better than I have had in years! Thank you Dr. Brokstein for all you do! You are a miracle worker with magical hands :)

This chiropractor is the by far, the best! Highly Recommended!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Will chiropractic help me?

    Only a consultation with Dr. Russell Brokstein could answer this question. Schedule a consultation today! If the consult and exam findings show chiropractic can help you, we will begin treatment. If Dr. Brokstein finds another specialist would better fit your condition, he will make a recommendation to you.

  • What can I expect on the first visit?

    Unlike other offices, we do not overbook. We value and respect your time, so we keep waiting to a minimum. To help expedite your first visit, you can go to our website www.chiropractorfreehold.com and click the Forms tab to print and fill them out before coming to the office. Make sure you bring a photo ID, your insurance card and a form of payment for what your insurance says is your responsibility or if you are a cash patient. Dr. Brokstein will then discuss your condition, then perform a state of the art computerized scan on your spine to show you where pressure is occurring on your nerves, and then do orthopedic evaluation to determine the cause of these imbalances. All patients will receive treatment during the first visit (if you agree to the treatment) so we can start providing you the pain relief you are looking for.

  • How long are visits?

    Your first visit will include a thorough examination. This visit will be around 45 minutes, as you will find it to be one of the most thorough evaluations you have experienced. Dr. Brokstein will take the time to find what is causing your pain and how treatment will correct it. Follow up treatment visits are about 15 minutes long. Most chiropractic visits at other doctors are just 2 to 4 minutes, but Dr. Brokstein takes the time to address the different causes. Using a combination of chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic stretching and if needed, different therapies, we are working to correct the imbalances leading to your condition. Dr. Brokstein also takes the time to show you home stretching to help expedite your recovery.

  • Do you take insurance?

    We take all insurances. Each insurance is different, but as long as there are chiropractic benefits, a portion of your visit will be paid based on what your insurance allowances are.

  • Is chiropractic treatment appropriate for children?

    There are many benefits for children to get adjusted. Children are extremely active, so they often fall or bump their bodies on furniture, walls, etc. Even being born is traumatic for a child! It often creates their first subluxation, since the spine of an infant is soft and underdeveloped. And as children grow, they learn to walk, which means falling, stumbling, tumbling, twisting, and various other injuries to the spine. This can cause a number of symptoms (including back and neck pain, stiffness, soreness or discomfort) but you are unlikely to hear about it or see signs of this until much later in life. Chiropractic treatment helps restore a balanced flow of energy and betters your child’s performance and control of his body as he goes through different stages of development. Without subluxations, your child also has a lower risk of future health challenges. With regular chiropractic care, your child may also have a stronger immune system. 

  • Is chiropractic care safe for pregnant women?

    Yes! Chiropractic care is completely safe for pregnant women and the baby as well. It is especially helpful to women who experience back pain while pregnant, yet are looking to avoid medications during that time. Many pregnant women find chiropractic adjustments to be very helpful to relieve low back pain and sciatica brought on by pregnancy. More than ever before, Ob-gyns are recommending that their patients see a chiropractor to help with pregnancy related aches and pains.

  • What type of education do chiropractic doctors receive?

    Chiropractors like Dr. Brokstein are surprisingly well-educated! They complete a minimum of seven years of schooling in college. Dr. Brokstein has a 4 year Biology degree from The Pennsylvania State University, and also attended Life Chiropractic College for another 4 years.
    Medical school and chiropractic schooling are actually quite similar. However, Chiropractors do not prescribe medications or perform surgeries. On the other hand, MDs cannot correct subluxations in the spine like chiropractors can – so there are definite differences in what they focus on in their schooling. Where doctors might have more preliminary testing before they can practice medicine, chiropractors never stop learning. They are always staying current with the latest research and techniques.
