About Dr. Dinoff and Holistic Chiropractic
Dr. Dinoff's life of service began in 1981 when he took a special education assignment for the Board of Education. His love for children, coupled with his degrees in education, enabled him to achieve outstanding results with his classes for children with autism. Although happy with his years of special education service, an accident led to a significant shift in his life.
In November 2006, I called Dr. Dinoff in sheer panic to ask if he could help my son who was in excruciating pain from an overnight onset of Neuropathy in his legs and feet.
At that point my son, Brett had been suffering for 4 weeks. He had seen every type of doctor and had every kind of test. He was under the care of a child neurologist, who prescribed the right medicine that would eventually help relieve the condition, but he warned us that it was a very long and slow process (months and months) to that end. In the meantime, because of the excruciating pain, my son could not walk. He was not functioning. He had been out of school for 4 weeks and counting. He was hurting bad...
Dr. Dinoff told us to come in to see him immediately. He met us in the parking lot and escorted us into his office. As Dr. Dinoff always does, he filled us with his optimism and positive thinking. He spent 2.5 hours with Brett using the BEST technique of therapy. He gave Brett the confidence that the pain could be overcome, and that he could start walking again... that day! YES, Dr. Dinoff performed his magic and with non invasive techniques, managed to bring Brett back to his feet that day! Brett WALKED out of Dr. Dinoff’s office. He was not “cured”, and the relief was temporary, but Dr Dinoff had proven to us that this pain management therapy worked. Most importantly, Dr. Dinoff gave us our HOPE back that Brett’s condition could be eventually relieved. Brett continued an intensive schedule of BEST therapy with Dr Dinoff and after about 4 weeks, the schedule was gradually reduced down to 1 per week until the neuropathy was entirely gone. Dr Dinoff’s technique never failed us. Each time Brett was in pain walking into Dr Dinoff’s office, he walked out with the pain relieved.
I admit that I was a skeptic when I first walked in, but Dr. Dinoff has really proven to me that his BEST technique DOES work. Dr. Dinoff has made an incredible difference in our lives!
I had a painful chronic back problem (and an anatomically short leg requiring a 9 mm shim in my right shoe) for 30+ years, seeing nearly two dozen chiropractors in 6 different states.
Of course, I felt great after a good treatment, but the results, at best, were temporal, sometimes lasting no more than a few days.
Any hard physical exercise, stress, or a little too much sugar in my diet would immediately reestablish the exact former pattern. To “feel good” I had to live a very restrictive life, not the life I wanted for myself.
I was fortunate to meet Dr. Dinoff. His method of care addresses the cause of our health problems instead of treating symptoms. He was able to quickly identify and eliminate the cause of my chronic back problem in only 4 visits!
Dr. Dinoff's "BEST Technique" not only eliminated my chronic back condition, it also eliminated my anatomical short leg condition; I don’t need a lift in my shoe anymore.My anatomically short leg condition was confirmed by two different doctors, in two different states, several years apart, and each diagnosis was verified by x-ray.
My understanding of this problem is that my back and short leg condition was the result of a subconsciously stored memory pattern, perhaps from a past injury, accident, or negative experience. Once Dr. Dinoff cleared the high brain interference, my body's Internal Intelligence immediately adapted my physical structure to eliminate my conditions.
As a result, I'm now able to participate in hard physical exercise, eat a more liberal diet, and endure lots of stress without lapsing into that old physical pattern.
Thanks so much Dr. Dinoff! It's hard to describe how this healing has changed my life and overall well-being.
This is a testimonial from a dear patient named Grace. Grace has experienced a severe stroke 6 years ago and has had numerous physical challenges as you can imagine. We are all very proud of Grace for following our recommendations. She has taken back control of her life and her health by diligently working on her Six Essentials of Life! This Testimonial was written in her own handwriting as difficult as that must have been. I am very blessed and honored to have been given the opportunity to assist Grace on her journey. We are all very touched, thankful and grateful to Grace for allowing us to help her, help herself!
Grace has recently passed on and the book that this is published in sits in our reception area for patients to read.
I’m not very good at writing a letter,
I can do it in verse so much better
Where should I start, how should I convey,
Just what it is I have to say
To say I was in pain, EVERYWHERE
Is no exaggeration, I declare
From my mind to toes, and even an elbow
From hips to waist and down below
What Joel Dinoff as a doctor did next,
Was not some old treatment straight from a text
He used pressure points on my body and then,
Had me count, from one to ten
He has a big sign on the ceiling above that says,
“I Believe” - I put in “In Me, G_D and Love”
I could hardly walk, was in agony
Now I walk straight with my arms flowing free
I’m not done yet there’s fine-tuning to do
If he did it for me, He can do it for you
The confidence I have is the best part of all,
Thanks to Dr Dinoff I can finally walk tall
Because of his zest for life and new ways
I will see much healthier and happier days

While skiing, Dr. Dinoff took a serious fall. His brother Lee, a chiropractor, knew what to do. After Dr. Dinoff received his first chiropractic treatment, he knew right then and there what he was destined to do for the rest of his life. He wanted to help others by specializing in the system of the body that is responsible for healing: the nervous system!
Shortly after this, Dr. Dinoff moved to Marietta, Georgia and enrolled at the Life University College of Chiropractic. After graduating in 1986, he gained tremendous experience by covering for busy clinic owners at numerous chiropractic offices. He then opened his first chiropractic clinic in Acworth, Georgia, followed by his second in Marietta in April 2005.
Dr. Dinoff was using "forceful" chiropractic and getting very good results for most of his patients. But he observed that some of them weren't able to "hold" their adjustments. Dr. Dinoff knew that there had to be something better and continued his search for other treatments through seminars and self-study.
That was when Dr. Dinoff got injured again! This time, it was severe lower back trauma like so many of his patients had. But it was this injury that led him to experience his second major life change.
It was during a continuing education seminar that Dr. Dinoff met Dr. W.B. Bean, who is one of the Master Instructors of the Morter HealthSystem's Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T.).
Dr. Dinoff couldn't sit through an entire class because of his lower back pain and asked Dr. Bean if he could help him. The latter agreed on one condition – that no one else could treat him that weekend!
This allowed Dr. Dinoff to assess the effectiveness of this nonforceful method of removing nerve interference. B.E.S.T. neutralized the cause of Dr. Dinoff's pain and symptoms and brought immediate and lasting relief to his lower back problem. He finally found what he was looking for!
Dr. Bean became an outstanding mentor for Dr. Dinoff and introduced him to his mentor Dr. M.T. Morter Jr., who is the inventor of B.E.S.T. Dr. Dinoff began his advanced training under Dr. Morter and passed his Diplomate Examination. He then passed his Masters Examination in 2003, becoming one of only 75 B.E.S.T. master practitioners in the country.
Dr. Dinoff's mastery of B.E.S.T. has enabled him to give back through Morter HealthSystem. He periodically co-teaches technique seminars throughout the country under the direction of his mentors.
Dr. Dinoff's accumulated experience and extensive B.E.S.T. training enable him to quickly address the cause of your core problem every time! He has also handled personal injury and workers’ compensation cases.
Dr. Dinoff sets an example for us all. He is an athlete who lives his "holistic chiropractic" message, while unswervingly following his mission to improve the health of mankind worldwide.
Dr. Dinoff is a 1981 graduate of Queens College City of New York with degrees in education and physical education. He has additional training in exercise physiology and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Life University College of Chiropractic in 1986.
While B.E.S.T. is Dr. Dinoff's most effective healing strategy, he also has advanced training and certifications in:
- Disability Rating
- Sports Medicine Techniques
- Thompson Technique
- Cox Distraction Technique
- Activator Technique
- Gonstead Technique
- Diversified Technique
- Nutritional Analysis
- C.O.P.E. Certified Health Coach
Five Steps to Health and Wellness
You're probably experiencing some pain or know that something's not right. Whatever it is, we're here to help by explaining the five steps we'll take to get you onto the road to recovery as fast as possible. The Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (B.E.S.T.) is uniquely capable of addressing core health issues and works well with all other forms of healthcare.
This most important step addresses the immediate distress that you're feeling, which means finding the cause and achieving relief. Pain isn't fun but it's necessary. It's how your subconscious mind, which governs your body, communicates to your conscious mind that something is wrong. This makes you look into correcting the cause of the pain and guarding the area that is injured.
The path toward permanent relief must include finding the actual cause of pain and distress. Often, this is not obvious because pain can be located in one part of the body while the cause may be located in other parts of the body. Most forms of pain come from negative stress like:
- Trauma – Physical stress or injury
- Toxicity – Dietary or environmental stress or injury
- Thoughts – Usually negative attitudes and feelings
What happens is that the stress from injury, poor diet, or negative thoughts hinder the information flow throughout your body, causing an imbalance. We find and remove the imbalance using B.E.S.T, which is a neurological and energy-balancing technique.
Once the cause of distress and pain has been discovered and corrected, the lifestyle habits that led to the symptoms must be addressed. This may involve changes to your diet and exercise so that you can achieve the benefits that result from healthy living. These changes should be made gradually.
Our bodies operate as a whole, which means that what affects our physical condition changes our attitudes and feelings. At the same time, the way we feel and think affects our body. When we learn to think healthy as well as live healthy, we address the whole person.
Now that pain has been relieved and we have learned how to live and think healthy, we are now prepared to stay healthy. However, this does not occur automatically. We must always be alert that it is easy to go back to harmful old habits. But because we have taken the correct steps, we are now ready to achieve the benefits of permanent good health and wellness.
