Dr. Stephen Becker

Dr. Stephen Becker has been practicing chiropractic since 1996 having successfully treated thousands of patients.  “The greatest feeling is helping someone achieve the lifestyle they desire by helping their body function properly again”.  Dr. Becker spent the first half of his career in NYC where he owned a busy chiropractic wellness center.  After Dr. Becker’s first children were born, he decided to move his practice to the suburbs of NJ.

Settling in Livingston, NJ, Becker Spine and Sports Institute, LLC was born.  “Livingston is a great location because it provides easy access to so many towns including West Orange, Essex Fells, East Hanover, Short Hills, Millburn, Summit, and many others.”   Always striving to add new tools to the practice tool box, Dr. Becker introduced the Graston Technique for tight muscles and fascia and spinal decompression therapy with the Drx9000 to treat bulging and herniated discs.

Before opening his first practice, Dr. Becker completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Albany before earning his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from The National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, IL. He has also earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Biology and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology.  Dr. Becker completed his internship at the Chicago General Health Center in Chicago, IL. There he worked firsthand with some of the nation’s foremost physicians in the fields of radiology, orthopedics, neurology, and rehabilitation. Dr. Becker built one of the largest chiropractic wellness centers in the heart of New York City. After his three children were born, he moved his practice to the suburbs of Northern New Jersey to be closer to his three children.

Dr. Becker takes a holistic approach to treatment, and in addition to chiropractic and physical therapy, he develops personalized programs to support patients’ health, including weight training, aerobic activities, and nutritional counseling for his patients. Dr. Becker has introduced Graston® technique which releases fascial adhesions and non-surgical spinal decompression utilizing the Drx9000® into his practice. The Becker Spine and Sports Institute also utilizes massage, acupuncture and traditional medical care when appropriate.
