Dr. Stephanie Wigner
My Path To Chiropractic
I first observed the body’s incredible natural healing abilities as a result of my grandfather’s serious illness. I had moved back home from attending undergraduate school to help care for him. He became so sick that he had to be placed in a medical-induced coma. Once they took him off all the medications he was on, however, he miraculously recovered.
While it was a close call for him, it made me realize the true potential our bodies have to heal themselves. My grandfather is alive and well today. The experience opened my eyes to all we’re capable of without outside intervention. It was then that I decided to enter the chiropractic profession.
My True Calling
It was during Dr. Stephanie’s first semester at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, that she fully realized that chiropractic was her true calling. During a philosophy course, she knew that it was her destiny, calling and passion in life to share the body’s innate intelligence with others. She also learned about nutrition and how chiropractic addresses the source of problems, rather than covering them up as medications do.
Once at chiropractic college, Dr. Stephanie learned that many people were unaware of the benefits chiropractic care offered for children. She knew she would specialize in pediatric and pregnancy care. Her love of children goes back to when she was a preschool teacher at a Montessori school before college. She has always loved working with kids.
My Passion for Pediatrics & Pregnancy
In college, Dr. Stephanie began studying with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA). She is now the first and only Certified pediatric and prenatal chiropractor in Ocean County. One of her greatest accomplishments to date is adjusting her premature nephew just two hours after his birth. She wanted to make sure he got the healthiest possible start in life. He is now a well-adjusted baby and continues to grow and express his full potential. Additionally, Dr. Stephanie is certified in the Webster Technique for expecting mothers.
Dr. Monika Luto
My Path To Chiropractic
Dr. Monika has always been driven to help people become healthy. Before attending Chiropractic school, Dr. Monika graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Exercise Physiology from The University at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY. Although this degree laid a vital foundation for her, she knew she wanted to do more for her community.
After discovering her passion for Chiropractic, she attended Life University in Marietta, GA, where she graduated with her Doctor of Chiropractic with honors in 2013. As a Chiropractor she provides care for the whole person and takes into account all aspects of structural, chemical and emotional health. She takes the time to listen and thoroughly address the needs of those who seek help for any concern, whether it is for pain and discomfort or preventative wellness care. Dr. Monika strongly believes in educating patients for sustained long-term results, so that they may feel empowered when it comes to their health.
Certifications and Memberships
Dr. Monika holds a certification by the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics to care for pregnant women and children of all ages. She is an active member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and takes pride in changing lives through improving the nervous system to allow optimal function and healing.
Dr. Monika recognizes it’s important to start life healthy and build a proper foundation for well being to allow our children to not only fight but also prevent illnesses and chronic conditions from developing.
Outside of the Office
Dr. Monika has learned traveling is a great stress reliever, and even more so when combined with doing what she loves. During her Chiropractic education she joined a Chiropractic mission to El Salvador, which increased her passion for helping people within her own community. During her free time while staying close to home, you can find Dr. Monika exploring new hikes, soaking up the sun and spending time with her family and “child like” dog.
