JH-2017-fixedJohn J. Haberströh, D.C.



Boston Spine Clinics, Clinical Director (Everett, MA)

 

Dr. Haberstroh started practice in his home state of New Jersey upon graduating from Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. Five years later he moved to Boston, Massachusetts where he has remained ever since. Upon opening Boston Spine Clinics in Boston, Dr. Haberströh, in quick succession, began acquiring numerous post-graduate credentials. He always felt that to achieve clinical excellence, post-grad training was essential for all the doctors employed at Boston Spine Clinics. He first obtained the Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Neurology. Shortly after that he obtained his second degree in Neurology by obtaining a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Academy of Neurology. There are only 4 or 5 chiropractors worldwide with two or more neurology Diplomate degrees. He also acquired numerous other certifications over the years including:

  • Fellow of the American College of Forensic Examiners,
  • Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP)
  • Certified Chiropractic Insurance Consultant (CCIC)
  • Certified Chiropractor in Spinal Trauma (CCST)
  • Certified Accident Reconstructionist (CAR)
  • Certified Medical Investigator-Level 5 (CMI-V)
  • Certified Forensic Consultant (CFC)
  • American Chiro. Rehab Board- 1 (ACRB-1)
  • Diplomate National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (Parts I- IV + PT)

Dr. Haberströh is still one of the most credentialed chiropractors in the USA. He is still in active practice treating patients. Dr. Haberströh also lectures and consults other chiropractors on how to better document their case files and he offers a Forensic File review in the event of a challenge from a third party. He established the format for case documentation that has been widely emulated throughout the profession including the First Day Reports,Clinical addendas, Final Narratives and Forensic IME rebuttals. He loves spending time with his three children when possible. 
Dr. H has been in a long term relationship with his wonderful life- partner Kim. Dr. H's hobbies include,
Music (playing/writing), writing articles, training and travel.
