PROFESSIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

Stuart and Theresa Warner are a husband-and-wife chiropractic team who have revolutionized the chiropractic world by teaching chiropractors to attract the child as the first patient in the family to receive care. Guided by their passion for helping children achieve their full God-given potential, the Warners have created a unique model for building child-centered practices.

The Warners were known as “pediatric chiropractors” before there were pediatric chiropractors. They have been coaching fellow chiropractors for the past 2 decades, teaching them all aspects of pediatric practice management procedures, how to improve their pediatric technique to gain confidence in adjusting children, innovative marketing strategies and promotions, and leading special events designed to propel them to become leaders in their communities and advocates for children's health.

Through their “Chiropractic Pediatric University (CPU)” and “Pediatrics to the Max” programs, the Warners were the first to bring comprehensive chiropractic coaching and management programs to the internet, helping chiropractors build extraordinary pediatric practices from the comforts of their own homes or offices.

In 1995, the pair founded the celebrity- and government-endorsed Kids Day America/International™, the biggest day ever for chiropractors helping children! Each year, this powerful event drives chiropractors to the forefront of their towns. The entire community gets involved donating to, promoting, and attending this free event that is dedicated to children’s health and safety and environmental awareness. The Warners provide sanctioned chiropractors with an abundance of power and influence by linking them to a worldwide event that brings together chiropractors and countless families from around the globe. To date, more than 2,500 chiropractors have participated, resulting in over 5 million children being screened for subluxation! As a result, hundreds of thousands of children have started under chiropractic care in those offices.

Drs. Warner also founded Wellness Moms America™, chiropractic-led monthly meetings that bring together like-minded mothers to teach them how to live the chiropractic wellness lifestyle. In addition to educating mothers, these meetings also introduce participating chiropractors to an abundance of new families who are seeking higher levels of health and wellness for their families. This network is constantly expanding, as new chapters continue to be formed across the country and around the world.

Drs. Stu and Theresa are widely sought-after speakers on the topics of chiropractic pediatrics and pregnancy. In addition to their own mega conferences and programs they have served as regular keynote and team speakers for many of the top chiropractic programs, including Parker Seminars, Dynamic Essentials, International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, Total Solution Program, New Beginnings Philosophy Program, and Teach the World About Chiropractic. They have also taught at hundreds of state conventions, philosophy nights, and private programs and have been postgraduate faculty members of several chiropractic colleges.

In addition to teaching doctors, the Warners have a heart for chiropractic students. They have provided countless programs and support for chiropractic colleges on 3 continents. They also are contributors to 3 of the college's President Circles.

Drs. Warner are contributing authors to the pediatric chapter of the New York Times best-selling book, One Minute Wellness. They have served as spokespersons on the topic of raising healthy children for various forms of media, including television, print, and radio.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICE / HONORS

Dr. Stuart Warner

Dr. Stu has served the profession in many capacities, including as Representative Assemblyman for the state of New Jersey for the International Chiropractic Association, board member of the Council of NJ Chiropractors (where he was also served as chair of the philosophy and convention committees), and Chairman of the International Board of Governors for the World Chiropractic Alliance.

Dr. Stuart was honored by being named a Fellow of the International Chiropractors Association. In 2001, he received the Alumnus of the Year award from Life University, voted on by 10,000 alumni.

Dr. Stu considers his work in uniting the major chiropractic organizations and college presidents—a feat that had never before been accomplished—for a “Chiropractic Town Hall Meeting” one of his biggest accomplishments to date. Three such town hall meetings were held across the country during the Warner’s renowned Chiropractic Pediatric Conferences. Each meeting was followed by a closed door session in which leaders discussed the critical issues involved in advancing the profession. In attendance were the president or chairman of the board from the representative organizations, including the International Chiropractors Association (ICA), American Chiropractic Association (ACA), Congress of Chiropractic State Associations (COCSA), Federation of Straight Chiropractors and Organizations (FSCO), Association of Chiropractic Colleges (ACC), World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC), and the World Chiropractic Alliance (WCA), as well as prominent Chiropractic College Presidents and select leaders from the largest chiropractic pediatric companies.

Dr. Theresa Warner

Dr. Theresa was awarded the 1999 Humanitarian of the Year award from the World Chiropractic Alliance in recognition of her efforts in bringing chiropractic care to the children of the world and her support of children’s charities.

In 2002, Dr. Theresa was called for voluntary testimony before the White House Commission on Complementary and Alternative Medicine. There, she talked about the important role of the pediatric chiropractor in children’s health.

Dr. Theresa has also presented to the Council on Women and Children at the United Nations NGO Department of Public Information.

Dr. Theresa has joyfully served as a Le Leche League leader since 2006, providing expert breastfeeding advice and support for nursing mothers in her community.

CHIROPRACTIC PRIVATE PRACTICE

Drs. Warner have been in private practice at Warner Chiropractic Center for Pediatric, Prenatal & Family Wellness in Point Pleasant, New Jersey since 1992, where 75% of their patients are children under the age of 10. In almost every instance, the child is the first patient in the family to receive care in their practice.

In addition to their private practice, the Warners care for accomplished people in entertainment, sports, politics, and business. Their office also serves as a training ground for chiropractors who come to learn at their Chiropractic Pediatric Fantasy Camp.

The Warners have spearheaded many annual children’s events within their community, including Kids Day America/International™, Children’s Health and Wellness Expos, baby and kids’ parades, as well as monthly Wellness Mom’s America and Le Leche League meetings, to name just a few.

Dr. Stuart and Dr. Theresa are passionate about teaching children and love visiting schools each year to share the chiropractic message and teach kids about the detriments of subluxation and how to keep their spines and nervous systems healthy, and to influence future chiropractors at career days.

PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION / CHIROPACTIC COLLEGE EXPERIENCE

Drs. Warner both graduated from Life University, Dr. Stu in 1990 and Dr. Theresa in 1992, where they finished their student clinic proficiencies in record time—3 weeks and 4 weeks, respectively. Both developed pediatric practices while still in student clinic.

The Warners’ enthusiasm and love for the science, art, and philosophy of chiropractic drove them to become involved in all aspects of the chiropractic college experience. Outside of class time, their passion for chiropractic led them to spend every free moment enveloping themselves in all things chiropractic. They sought out chiropractic philosophy nights, regularly attended 8 weekend seminars during each 11-week quarter, recruited the finest speakers from the profession to speak to the student groups they represented, and visited the most successful chiropractic practices in their pursuit of learning. Friends used to joke that the only time Stu or Teri would miss a chiropractic event was because they were attending another chiropractic event and couldn’t be in two places at once.

The Warners passionate pursuit of chiropractic made them ready to explode their practice on day one. Drs. Sid and Nell Williams (Life Chiropractic College/University President and Founders) commented that the Warners were among the finest students to graduate Life, because they made the most of every moment during their chiropractic college experience. Today, the Warners enjoy teaching other students to make the most of their own chiropractic college experience so that they, too, can transition to a successful practice on day one.

While attending Life University, Dr. Theresa became the president of the student ICA chapter. Under her tenure, the chapter grew to become the largest in the world at that time (with approximately 2,000 members), surpassing Palmer for the first time ever! She was also co-president of the motion palpation club. Prior to graduating, she helped co-found the first pediatric club at Life.

Dr. Stu was president of the motion palpation club, the largest student chiropractic technique club in the world, with 400 students regularly attending 8 hours of instruction each week. In addition, he was the treasurer of the student ICA during his tenure. He was bestowed the inaugural “Clinician of the Year” award, after being nominated by the clinic faculty and elected by the student body.

CIVIC/COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Dr. Stu and Dr. Theresa are both civic-minded and have held many positions within their community. They are respected business and philanthropic leaders in their town.

Dr. Theresa was appointed by the mayor to serve on the Point Pleasant Environmental Commission, a position she held for several years. She also served as vice president of the Ocean/Monmouth County Chapter of the New Jersey Association of Women’s Business Owners.

Dr. Stu was appointed by the mayor to serve a 4-year term on the Point Pleasant Board of Health. In addition, he served on the board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce for the greater Point Pleasant area.

Dr. Stuart also recently served on the board of directors for the Grace Classical Christian Academy High School in Allenwood, New Jersey.

PERSONAL LIFE

Dr. Stu grew up in Paramus, New Jersey, where he was a standout all-star/all-state baseball player. He continued to play baseball while in college. As an undergraduate, he had a personal experience with chiropractic that inspired him to change his major and head to Life Chiropractic College. While at Life, he played on their softball team, and he now enjoys coaching his kids.

Dr. Theresa spent her childhood in Wappingers Falls, New York. She was introduced to chiropractic as a child, when her family moved next door to a husband-and-wife chiropractic team.

Growing up, Dr. Theresa was an avid gymnast; she became the first 7th-grader ever to be recruited for the varsity high school gymnastics team. After joining the team, Dr. Theresa became a stand-out and competed in the state championships. In 9th grade, she was voted a team captain. She helped take her team to compete in Oahu, Hawaii and Beijing, China. In 2003, she was voted into the Dutchess County Sports Hall of Fame.

To help offset the cost of her education, Dr. Theresa was involved in pageants and modeling.

The Warners met while in Chiropractic College and were married soon after.

Despite their many accolades, the Warners’ greatest achievements by far are their 3 beautiful children: Sydney (age 13), Skylar (age 11), and Alexis (age 6). All 3 children were adjusted within 5 minutes of being born, practiced extended breastfeeding and co-sleeping, and have been raised in the chiropractic lifestyle. Long-time patients of the Warners have had the pleasure of watching the Warner children grow and blossom.

As a family, the Warners enjoy spending time outdoors. Living at the beautiful Jersey shore, they are fortunate to be able to spend their summers on the beach, boating, camping, and kayaking. The Warners are self-described “foodies” and big fans of sports and travel. They are regular attendees of Grace Bible Church in Allenwood, NJ and love staying involved with their church family.

A love of healthy competition runs in the family: in addition to being straight-A students, the Warner children are all very active in competitive sports. They each play on multiple teams, including soccer in the fall, basketball in the winter, and baseball/softball in the spring. In addition, Sky is an avid Boy Scout, Sydney and Alexis participate in competitive dance and cheerleading, and all 3 children take private music lessons for piano, drums, and guitar.

The Warner family loves animals and count cats and fish among their family members. A puppy will be added to the family shortly! They also enjoy organic gardening and have chickens on their property, allowing them to enjoy fresh organic eggs daily.
