Dr. Paul Fisher and his team welcome you to Gold Coast Chiropractic
Dr. Fisher has undergone extensive Post-Graduate training in whiplash injuries, headaches, posture analysis, neuropathy, pregnancy, neck pain, shoulder pain, and low back pain. He is Advanced Certified in Chiropractic Biophysics, Whiplash Biomechanics and Trauma and Selective Functional Movement Assessment. He has undertaken extensive studies in ligament injuries (the primary cause of chronic spinal pain) and has two studies pending publication.
It’s not often that you find a healthcare provider that shares your passion for what’s possible when it comes to your health. But at Gold Coast Chiropractic, we know that better health—and feeling your best—can and should be within everyone’s reach. That’s why we don’t settle for traditional treatments or conventional approaches that often limit health outcomes by focusing solely on pain management or symptom relief rather than identifying and resolving the root cause of specific health issues.
Dr. Fisher is originally from Okoboji, IA. He attended Iowa State University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in MIS and a Minor in Chemistry. Upon graduation he moved to Lombard, IL to attend National University of Health Sciences. While there, he was awarded both a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Biology and a Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Fisher was also student body Vice-President and member of the executive board member of Student American Chiropractic Association. He also received a Master’s of Science in Nutrition from Bridgeport University.
Prior to graduation, Dr. Fisher was selected to participate in the Department of Defense internship at National Naval Medical Hospital in Bethesda, MD. While an intern there, he performed weekly rotations in other departments including: Neurosurgery, Pain Management, Orthopedic Surgery, Radiology, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Oral Facial Pain Clinic. He then started Fisher Chiropractic and Integrative Health in Hinsdale, IL, which he ran with a partner until July of 2013. Dr. Fisher has been at Gold Coast Chiropractic since August 2013.
He is a member of Chiropractic Biophysics Non-Profit, the Illinois Chiropractic Society, and the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.
When not at the office, Dr Fisher enjoys reading (especially history and philosophy), coaching t-ball, running and manning the grill or the BBQ.
We’re excited to welcome Dr. Materna to our office!
Doctor Materna is proud graduate of Life University in Atlanta, Georgia where he earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic. He has immersed himself in the work of Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) and the Motion Palpation Institute to master the most well researched and effective chiropractic care available. Prior to his work in Atlanta, Doctor Materna completed his undergraduate degree at Drake University in Clinical and Applied Health Sciences with a minor in Spanish. He actually originally grew up not too far away in the suburb Algonquin of northwest Illinois and has enjoyed being closer to family. Doctor Materna fell in love with chiropractic as a way to give back to patients and help them to achieve the most of their lives. He is passionate about restoring function and removing obstacles from patients lives that are otherwise obstructing them from reaching their full potential.
In his free time his is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning coach who enjoys a good board game, curating Spotify playlists, and spending as much time as he can outside. While exercise and nutrition is certainly an important facet of his life, he still finds time to maintain his title of a self-proclaimed candy aficionado, succumb to every single ad for a mobile game on his social media feed, and playing soccer with friends. He is committed to being an invaluable team member of the best office in all of Chicagoland and giving every patient the individualized care they deserve.
