Dr. Scoma was born and raised on Long Island in New York. During his first year at St. Johns University, he sustained a shoulder injury while playing collegiate sports. To manage his pain, he began taking Motrin pills which only made him sick to his stomach. His mother then suggested that he go see her Chiropractor.
Upon receiving a neck adjustment, he immediately felt a tremendous release of pressure in his neck, head, upper back and shoulder. Dr. Scoma was shocked, happy, and amazed by how great his shoulder felt once his spine was adjusted and functioning properly. He was able to return and excel at competitive sports.
His dramatic, life changing experience sparked a passionate interest in researching how the Chiropractic procedures work so incredibly well. This amazing experience led to his decision of becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic.
Dr. Scoma’s philosophy about health and healing are based on finding the 'cause' of the problem and correcting it. He strongly believes in educating his patients about the important elements to health and longevity which include: balance, alignment, motion and proper nutrition.
