Dr. Estner’s introduction to chiropractic was at about age 16, when he suffered a lower back injury. He attended to a chiropractor and had near immediate relief of his pain. Over the next few years, he went for maintenance treatments, which continued throughout college. Following college, Dr. Estner became a commodities broker on Wall Street. Due to the high job stress level, he increased his chiropractic maintenance visits to one time per week. Realizing it was the stress of the job, he asked his chiropractor for some career advice. His chiropractor advised him to consider leaving commodities and become a chiropractor himself.
In the fall of 1993 Dr. Estner began his pursuit of a new and exciting profession at the Life University School of Chiropractic in Marietta, Ga. At the time, it was the largest chiropractic class in history. He graduated in 1997 and went to work with his chiropractor in New York. In 1998 Dr. Estner met his wife Elizabeth (of Providence) and they moved to Arizona. He opened two offices with a partner, one in Scottsdale and one in Phoenix. During the three years in Arizona they had two daughters and decided to move back to Rhode Island to be closer with their family. Since then, they had two boys and opened 3 Rhode Island locations.
In 2000 Dr. Estner opened the first location in Cranston. It has been relocated to 875 Pontiac Avenue. Since 2000 three more locations were opened, Providence, Pawtucket and Warwick. Dr. Estner is the current Chairman of The Rhode Island Department of Health Board of Chiropractic Examiners. He has maintained staff privileges at Women and Infants Hospital and was the first chiropractor in RI to be appointed to a hospital committee (Bioethics). He is the exclusive chiropractor for the trial lawyers association known as the Rhode Island Association for Justice.
Dr. Estner has four children, Olivia, Sydney, Eli and Levi. The Estner’s reside in East Greenwich and Matunuck, RI.
