Dr. Jay Goodbinder is a huge proponent of respecting and listening to the signs the body provides. To that end, the dedicated practitioner analyzes not just his patients’ symptoms, but also their bones, muscles, and their very molecules. He uses laboratory tests to unearth the root source of pain and discomfort, which might include nutritional deficiencies or toxicities. He then crafts a personalized treatment plan around these findings, which may include acupuncture therapy, simple adjustments, or myofascial release to heal damaged soft tissue as well as nutritional counseling or kinesio taping. Dr. Goodbinder and staff also use Nebulizer breathing treatments to administer nutrients directly to the blood stream.

He uses a variety of tests and panels to assess the functioning of the adrenal glands, immune system, and other organs.

Sean Bennington uses his own experience with pain and recovery to help others stop hurting and regain control of their lives.
