Every Visit Always
Stephen Harkins, D.C. founded and developed over fifty chiropractic practices throughout California at The Joint chiropractic franchise locations. There he pioneered the efficiencies that drive high volume, affordable fee chiropractic. His current practice, Chirocore, adds cutting-edge, effective care making his services an exceptional value. Dr. Harkins is heavily influenced by the works of Robert Maigne, M.D. and Andrew A. Fischer, MD. Their work on the segmental vertebral cellulotenoperiostiomyalgic syndrome and Segmental Spinal Sensitization respectively, provides the basis for his analysis and practice techniques. He is endlessly fascinated by the ability of the body to heal with such simple techniques using only his hands; he has recently gained an interest in the biopsychosocial approach to chronic pain. He enjoys the relentless pursuit of healing results for all of his patients. Dr. Harkins lives and works in Dana Point where he enjoys bodysurfing, volleyball, basketball, hiking, and biking.
