The Spine Align Pillow

Invented by our very own Dr. Jason Loth!

Unfortunately, most people sleep with poor posture and this is one of the biggest causes of physical stress on the body while sleeping.  Poor posture can lead to improper function of the joints, nerves, muscles, ligaments, and discs of the spine.  The longer you are in poor posture, the more damage that can occur.  Dysfunction of the spine and associated musculature could possibly lead to osteoarthritis, disc herniations, headaches, muscle strain and tightness, tingling in the arms and hands, insomnia, and some pains in the neck, and back.

The SpineAlign® Pillow helps you achieve correct sleeping posture by allowing you to move the conforming and proprietary internal fill throughout the side and back sleeping chambers of the pillow to achieve your exact fit. With the forgiving shredded internal material and the flexibility of the outer soft Tencel material put into a contouring patented design, the SpineAlign® Pillow allows you to customize your correct sleeping posture.

SpecialityChiropractic
DegreesBachelors in Exercise Science from Salisbury University in Maryland,
NSCA Certified Strengthening and Conditioning Specialist,
Doctorate in Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, GA
HobbiesHockey, lacrosse, yoga, hiking, watching movies, and reading

 

Dr. Zak Goodman started playing ice hockey when he was two years old, martial arts when he was four, and sports like lacrosse, golf, and tennis continued to be an important part of his life. While studying at Salisbury University, Dr. Goodman realized that he wanted to keep physical activity a focal point of his life and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science in 2009. After graduation, he trained athletes, children, geriatrics, and adults as a Certified Strengthening and Conditioning Specialist. Simultaneously, he served as a Physical Therapist Aide, allowing him to offer post-rehabilitative care to patients.

After working in health and wellness for several years, Dr. Goodman decided to widen his scope by becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic. Unfortunately, within the first year of school, he was involved in two car accidents that altered the path of his life. Throughout school, his health declined significantly; his pain progressed from physical to neurological, eventually manifesting as impaired cognitive function. His vision blurred, his ears rang, and smell hallucinations were a regular occurrence. He felt like a rug was pulled from under his feet, as he could no longer participate in activities he had done his entire life.

Dr. Goodman’s experience drove him to seek answers about his health that no other physician could find. He found many solutions, but chiropractic care was and always will be a vital piece of this puzzle. An adjustment of his atlas, the topmost bone of the spine, triggered a monumental transition in his health and well-being. With proper chiropractic care and exercise, he found himself improving. As Dr. Goodman has sought his own answers in healthcare, he is here to help find yours.

DR. STEFANIE WERNER

NMD

Dr. Stefanie Werner graduated from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine with an eclectic interest in environmental medicine, IV therapies, regenerative medicine (stem cell derivatives), infertility/childbirth/pediatric education, rheumatology, chronic / Lyme disease, prevention and life style coaching.  Paired with a Master of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition, her philosophy focuses on restorative medicine to aid the body in returning to a stronger sense of wellbeing.

 

Her love for rheumatology came after solving issues within her own joint health. Paired with a short internship with a local rheumatologist, she gained perspective on how to manage patients with both conventional knowledge and naturopathic wisdom. Being an Ironman Triathlete herself, Dr. Werner understands the value of joint health for longevity.  While in school, she made multiple trips to the Philippines to volunteer and intern at a free birth clinic called Mercy in Action. With her experience as a natural childbirth educator, doula and “home-birther”, she proudly supports birthing rights and is passionate about educating couples on decisions surrounding their own experiences.  Dr. Werner believes that through proper education, parents can raise healthy children with prevention in mind.

 

Besides medicine, she enjoys spending time with her family and dogs in their desert oasis and traveling.

 

Dr. Werner’s Personal Philosophy

 

The first step in regaining a state of health is to understand how one got to their current state in the first place.  For thousands of years, nature and the human body have been, for the most part, unadulterated by synthetic, man-made chemicals, which largely are not tested against human exposure for unforeseen problems.  Especially in the last 200 years, the rate of disease has exploded as societies increased their dependency on industrialization, immediate gratification and synthetic substances deemed as “medicine” or “food”.   To truly understand the origin of dis-ease, one must look at the larger picture of personal choices we have made throughout life
