Editorial Review. This office specializes in chiropractic care of the spine along with pain associated with spinal problems.
Dr. Christina Meakim has given me a new outlook on the definition of " health" I now believe I can feel good consistantly.. I was referred to the office by a friend. I'd had success with chiropractors before and loved the "cracking " element,yet I never really understood the impact on my spine. Dr. Meakim is like a walking encyclopedia. She makes sure you understand what is going on with your body before she works on you. She becomes invested in your ability to feel better when you had forgotten what feeling good really ever felt like. You leave her office standing up straight , light , relaxed -like a Princess and you become invested in staying that way. She gives you advice on diet, meditation, stress, psychology, at no extra cost. She is generous with her time and her emotions. If she doesn't have the answer she will consult with collegues, to make sure she gets it and she won't give up. You look forward to your appointments. But because the process is so effective you won't be there forever .
Dr. Jamie Stern.
I first injured by back in college in 1960 when I was assaulted by 30 - 40 high school youths on the college campus in Houston, Texas. I was injured again in 1992 while on duty as a Berkeley police officer. I fell and landed on the wench of a sail boat in the small of my back while investigating a case.
I lived on 800mg of Advil 4 times a day for the next several years. Physical therapy, regular chiropractic care, acupuncture, exersise, and any other therapy that has been tried have only resulted in very limited and short time results.
Heavier medications like Tylenol & Codeine and Vicoden treatment reduced my pain, but diminished my ability to function with unencumbered mental clarity.
I met Dr. Stern when we happened to sit at the same table at a Rotary lunch in San Francisco and my life has been changed. After the first office visit in March of this year, I was pain free without prescription medicine therapy for more than 30 days.
The thing most shocking about this treatment and therapy which she calls the NUCCA method is the simplicity of the treatment. How can 46 years of pain go away with such little effort on her part? Dr. Jamie Stern is simply put, WONDERFUL! I have seen her 5 times in 4 months, but mostly I keep going back to say "Thank you, thank you, thank you for truly changing my life".
I have found an angel here on earth, and I understand that her partner, Dr. Meakim just may be one too!

beats anything I've tried...w/o cracking and popping!. I was skeptical at first. I actually enjoyed the sensation of cracking and popping from most chiropractors, but I decided to give it a try. I knew from the first adjustment that this was something different and superior to whatever chiropractic experiences I had previously! Immediately, I felt a new strength in my neck and spine. Even more amazing is that after four or five adjustments, the adjustments held and I was told I didn't need adjustments several times a week anymore! I've been coming in only every other week and usually holding my adjustment. This never happened with any other chiropractic system. Try it! You won't regret it!
BEST CHIROPRACTOR I HAVE EVER BEEN TO!!!!.
I have been to many chiropractors in the past and was always a little leery about going to yet another one, until I found Dr Jamie Stern! She and her business partner (Dr Christina Meakim) use a highly specialized method called "NUCCA" which I had heard about but had not had the pleasure of experiencing until I started seeing Dr Stern.
Unlike most Chiropractors that turn you this way and crack you that way, my first visit was spent xraying my head, neck and spine(to show how truly out of alignment I was!) instead of what other Chirpractors use as their standard line "your one leg is shorter than the other"
I am a hairstylist by trade, and given all of the various ways we as stylists need to contort our bodies to do hair, it is no wonder that I am not seeing Dr Stern every day! I have been seeing Dr Jamie Stern for almost a year now, and I enjoy our visits immensely! At first I needed to see her more frequently(every two weeks) but we have now gotten it to 1 visit a month! that is how long I am able to hold my alignment for!(that never was the case with ANY other Chiropractor I saw in the past!) That's true progress!!! So if you are in pain, and you want someone that is not only highly skilled, but will actually listen to you and target those areas that need desperate attention! as well as make your visit as pleasnt as possible then rush to see Dr Jamie Stern!!! Take it from one who knows!!!!! I feel great! Thanks Jamie! You are the best!!!!
