Chiropractor Steven S. Mustoe Joins Gifford’s Sports Medicine Team
Wednesday, May 20, 2015
Steven S. Mustoe, D.C. has joined the Sports Medicine clinic at the Sharon Health Center. A board-certified chiropractor, he has practiced for the last 18 years in Brattleboro, VT and Charlottesville, VA.
Mustoe became a chiropractor because of his own experience with an injured back. “The only relief doctors could offer was through medication. When I went off drugs, the pain returned,” he said. “I eventually found a chiropractor who helped me heal. To be able to relieve someone’s pain like that is an amazing thing!”
Originally from London, England, he received a Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Life Chiropractic West in California after relocating to the states to be with his wife, Gail. The two met 25 years ago when Mustoe was a tour guide on a seven week bus tour through Europe. They’ve been together ever since, and now have two children.
After years in private practice, Mustoe looks forward to collaborating with a multidisciplinary sports medicine team that includes podiatry, general sports medicine, and physical therapists. He is also excited about the equipment and technology at the Sharon center—a physical therapy gym space; x-ray technology and mounted flat screens for reviewing radiological exams; physical therapy treatment rooms; and a state-of- the-art gait analysis system.
His special interest is in helping people regain the ability to enjoy their life: as an athlete, an injured veteran, or someone unable to perform daily tasks.
“I tend to work gently, to listen to people and then help with function as well as pain,” he said. “You don’t have to be an athlete—maybe what’s important to you is to be able to play with the grandchildren in the back yard.”
Dr. Mustoe is now seeing patients at the Sharon Health Center. Call 763-8000 to schedule an appointment.
