Dr. Lerner suffered from debilitating joint pain and developed a bleeding ulcer as a side effect of prescription anti-inflammatories. The fact that he could no longer take the medications led him to a chiropractor who changed his life.
In 1994, Dr. Lerner opened his first clinic in Kissimmee, FL. Within a year, the clinic was adjusting 1,000 patients a week and he had already opened two additional clinics. Dr. Lerner’s upward trend continued, and he eventually owned five clinics that cared for up to 14,000 patients a month. In 1995, he was named the first official chiropractor for the USA Wrestling World Team, and he traveled with USAW to the Atlanta and Sidney Olympic Games, as well as eight world championships. In 2000, he was even named the chiropractor for the NBA’s Orlando Magic under coach Doc Rivers.
