"It's hard to find a caring doctor- who's dedicated to back and neck pain relief."



Dr. Masters has made it his mission in Hawaii to provide people like you with the best back and neck care possible.  He's dedicated to ending your pain with gentle, experienced care.  He's also committed himself to friendly, one-on-one, professional care. The kind that doesn't compromise where your care is concerned.  The kind that believes in taking the time to answer your questions and make sure that everything is explained to you.


For three generations, Dr. Masters' family has been treating back, neck, and head pain, so he knows the value of effective back and neck care.  And he knows how rewarding it is to bring relief to those who thought they had to live with pain.

Dr. Masters also:

  • Has been an instructor at the Palmer College of Chiropractic.
  • Can serve as a qualified expert witness and an independent chiropractic examiner.
  • Has spent thousands of hours studying the latest in back and neck care - so you get the most up-to-date treatment possible.


State of-the-art testing gives Dr. Masters a map for prescribing the treatment that's right for you.  Many times, he can find out what's wrong just by feeling the injured area with his trained hands.  This technique is called "motion palpation," one of several techniques in which Dr. Masters is certified.

Posture analysis, manual muscle testing, neurological testing, or X-rays are validating additional exams. Finally, referrals are made for electrodiagnostics, a CT scan, or an MRI if needed. Once the cause of your pain is determined...


Dr. Masters doesn't just stop the pain you feel now.  He finds out what causes your pain, and helps you prevent the pain from coming back.  To do this, he offers you educational workshops on wellness, stretching, and practical exercise to help you prevent back and neck pain from returning.  If your pain is from an auto or work injury, active exercise rehabilitation with a physical therapist is directed by Dr. Masters.


Dr. Masters knows that in Hawaii, time is one of your most precious resources.  That's why his treatments are not only effective, but fast as well - so you'll feel pain relief as quickly as possible. And because the average appointment takes about 30 minutes, you won't have to worry about taking lots of time off from work.

He also knows that, these days, you want to save money. But you shouldn't do that by putting off needed back and neck treatment.  That's why he accepts most major insurances, and his staff is more than happy to file your forms for you.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
