Dr. Arbeitman’s Story: A Life Filled with Passion and Purpose
by Linda Sechrist
Which would it be: a career in medicine, physical therapy or chiropractic? Larry Arbeitman, founder of Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Monmouth, had a decision to make when he left his hometown of Manalapan to study kinesiology at the University of Maryland. Deeply interested in the human mechanics of health performance, Arbeitman was well poised to choose any one of his three options after completing kinesiology and a brief internship in each field of study. “As the basis of knowledge for athletic trainers, strength and conditioning experts, orthopedic and chiropractic doctors, kinesiology was the perfect head start to any career that involved the human body,” he says.
Arbeitman’s future was eventually influenced by his history of playing football in high school. While attending Life University in Marietta, Georgia, the regular adjustments he had for his neck pain, which was the result of taking numerous hits on the football field, were unsuccessful. “The fact that regular treatments, for the pain I had every time I turned my neck, weren’t making a difference led me to question my decision to be a chiropractor,” recalls Arbeitman. A college classmate changed everything with a suggestion that Arbeitman see an Upper Cervical chiropractor in Atlanta.
After only one Upper Cervical alignment it became clear that this scientific technique would be the focus for his chiropractic practice.
“I was intrigued by his work and how he had created a community of health and healing within his scope of influence and I was amazed at the number of people from all over the world who came to see him.
Only 21 years old then, I was very excited that I had found my passion and purpose so early in life,” explains Arbeitman, who also attended Logan College of Chiropractor in Chesterfield, Missouri to earn his doctorate. “Within chiropractic there are two different schools of philosophy and I wanted to learn both so I could choose the right one for me.
Life University’s curriculum is designed around the premise that the body heals from the inside out and Logan’s focus is to prepare students to become primary care physicians,” advises Arbeitman. The upper cervical alignment that Arbeitman specializes in focuses on aligning the C-1 vertebra, a small donut-like bone located at the top of the spine and the base of the skull that surrounds the brain stem. “We have a very scientific and calculated approach to alignment and we do it without popping or twisting the neck.
We use an x-ray to measure the position of the vertebrae to exactly one-hundredth of a degree before applying a gentle controlled force,” explains Arbeitman. Educated to discern well for his patients, Arbeitman has the knowledge and experience to determine when his patients only need his Upper Cervical chiropractic care or when it is best to co-manage their health or refer them to another doctor. “I treat my patient’s as if they are family, which means that I do what is best for them,” says Arbeitman.
Patient education is essential, which is why Arbeitman facilitates ongoing seminars for patients and their spouses on healthy lifestyles, nutrition, osteoporosis, stress management, detoxifying, and other subjects. “We also pay a monthly fee to WellCall, a pioneer in health coaching and wellness programs, to give our patients access to their own personal health coach who can assist them in making lifestyle changes.
Our patients appreciate having an accountability partner who helps them to set and achieve their goals,” enthuses Arbeitman. “I treat my patients as if they are family to me and I would do the same thing for any one of my family members who needed a personal coach.
What Makes Us Unique?
The “status quo”, as we define it, is the set of beliefs that people acquire regarding their health that they then consider as “THE TRUTH.”
Did you realize that our country continues to become more overweight and obese, yet the number of “FAT FREE” items has increased dramatically?
Did you realize that for the first time in history our children are not forecasted to live past the age of their parents?
Did you realize that, according to the American Medical Association, the third most likely thing you will die of as an American is now a medication that was properly prescribed?
Unfortunately, these questions are only the tip of the iceberg, but they are also the reason why we are extremely unique.
We offer people all natural, noninvasive, and completely customized healthcare solutions that focus on an inside-to-outside philosophy. The Central Nervous System is the master controller of your entire body and when there is interference, your body will not perform at its full potential. This interference is called a subluxation, and as a chiropractor, we have been trained to find and remove this nerve interference which will help you achieve optimal health.
We see patients ranging from all ages (even newborns) and with a variety of conditions. We connect like-minded people who are looking to live with more vitality than ever before.
