ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!
We have been going to Dr. Steve since we moved to California in 2007. He is the most effective chiropractor I have ever been to. We have seen many chiropractors with a variety of techniques over the years as we have lived in six states. The first thing I did after our car accident in 2011 was call Dr. Steve. Literally, from the site where we were rear ended. I truly realized how talented Dr. Steve is after our car accident. His adjustments kept us from suffering more serious neck pain and damage from our injuries. My four children, husband and I all get adjustments from Dr. Steve. I trust him fully and know that he is a doctor we can always count on.

I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER!
I have been to many chiropractors and Dr. Ward is the best. The technique he uses actually works. I can be in and out in 5 minutes and I instantly feel better. I wish he was open more days!!
~Ali G.

LIFE SAVER
Dr. Steve is amazing! His ability to pin point my issues both physically and emotionally has been a lifesaver. I have learned so much about how my emotional health effects my physical health and his kind words and reassurance are always of great comfort to me! I can’t say enough about how much his work has changed my life!
~Dana H.

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! NEVER FELT BETTER
I had so many aches and pains, after just 3 treatments my back was feeling better. Years of backs aches and Steve Magic hands did wonders. Really we should keep it a secret so I do not have a long wait in his waiting room HE IS THE MAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…
~Brian B.

BEST ADJUSTMENT EVER
Not only have I received the best adjustment ever, but Dr. Steve also advises me on how the stresses in my life are affecting my spinal health. The adjustment helps me feel better immediately and the suggestions for ‘stress’ reduction always help keep me in good health!
~Mari K.

BEST RESULTS FOR TOUGH CASES
I first took my son (muscular dystrophy) to Ward Chiropractic in 1991. Dr. Steve got immediate, outstanding results with Garth. I have seen many other similar over the years. I don’t think there is anyone anywhere who gets better results with tough cases than Dr. Steve.
~Richard D.

IMMEDIATE RELIEF FROM DEBILITATING PAIN!
I suffer from severe complicated scoliosis. Looking for any alternative to risky surgery I came to Ward Chiropractic as a teenager. I felt so much better after just 1 treatment. I’ve been coming ever since from Riverside every week for 3/4 of my life! So happy to find a chiropractor that understands and is willing to take on even the toughest cases. I’m always amazed at the instant relief after a treatment. I highly recommend giving this a try before making any major decisions on how best to treat or manage any severe conditions. ANY relief from major pain is welcome!
~Michelle S.

TRULY GRATEFUL
I found Dr. Steve through a good friend of mine who’s been seeing him for the past year. I’ve always been a little hesitant with chiropractors because I’ve had some really bad experiences, but Dr. Steve has changed that perception. I’m extremely grateful to have found him and, even though I live in LA, I find the drive to Long Beach to be worth ever minute of traffic. His experience and wisdom is priceless! My body has changed on so many levels, which has deeply affected my emotional and mental states. The true testament to his work is given by the people around me who have been commenting on how different I look as well as how much happier I am. Thank you, Dr. Steve, for all of your dedication and passion that you give to your work and share with us, your patients!
~Joseph S.

LIFE CHANGER
Dr. Steve has transformed and supported me physically and emotionally. His technique not only improves any pain I experience from my career as a hairdresser to emotional pain I’ve held from birth. He also explains to me about our generational issues that arise throughout life. He is spiritual and knowledgeable and has helped me live a more positive life! He is a true healer sent from God.
~Tabatha W.

ABSOLUTELY EXCEPTIONAL
I went to see Dr. Ward for the first time about 15 years ago in terrible pain. I had seen another chiropractor that morning and the other chiropractor had exacerbated the pain I was in. I left Dr. Ward’s office in NO PAIN! He helped me to understand my condition from a Mind-Body perspective and how I could prevent pain in the future…all in a half hour. I have seen him all these years because he is trustworthy, honest, extremely knowledgeable, caring, empathetic, compassionate and gets results! I cannot speak highly enough of him. He is of great character and you will feel safe entrusting your wellbeing with him.
~Andrea G.

ALWAYS AN AMAZING AND WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!
Well it’s been an awesome journey for my family you see my boys were diagnosed with a rare disease called Becker muscular dystrophy. When the doctor gave us that news it was very scary because they said there was basically nothing that we could do. That’s something you never want to hear as a parent, we always want to be able to keep our kids safe and happy and never want to see them hurt or have pain. This disease causes a lot of pain and can cause loss of mobility. So we were very upset and didn’t know where to turn. Then we found out about Ward Chiropractic and how he worked with children with MD and had amazing results. So we went and not only did the boys feel better physically but emotionally it’s been the best thing for our family! At first it was all about the boys, but now my daughter and I think its all about us we love getting adjustments and Dr.Ward gives so much time and care he’s the most giving, loving doc you’ll ever meet. You always leave feeling great! It’s been 9yrs and we come all the way from New Jersey! So I definitely would say go see Dr.Ward your body and mind will feel so good.
~Tanya B.

DOCTOR WONDERFUL! RELEASING THE CHAINS THAT BOUND YOU!
Dr. Steve was able to immediately relieve my chronic lower back pain and tingling down my left leg. Dr. Steve enlightened me and my entire family on a level that I never expected. Relieving the family of the dysfunctional chain that bounded us. I found that many of the issues that have impacted my family had originated way before me. What was most surprising, revealing and relieving was those issues that I thought were directly related to me began in a prior generation and now I no longer live with that unhealthy burden. His expertise in the mind-body and spiritual sense is why he earns the right to be called Dr. Wonderful. His pricing was very affordable and the result was life changing. I highly recommended him to all my friends, co-workers and family. P.S. Dr. Wonderful went far and beyond anything I ever expected. My family and I have been transformed; this was a blessing from God.
~Dom G.

THE BEST CHIROPRACTOR IN CALIFORNIA
I have known Dr. Steve a long time, considerably longer than he has been known as Dr. Steve. In fact, when Dr. Steve was just a kid I grew up going to his father for my chiropractic care. Once I started going to Dr. Steve I began to feel that chiropractic care would always be a very important part of my health routine — as important as exercising and leading a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Steve has been my chiropractor through various moves that took me well away from the Long Beach area (including Elk Grove; Newnan, Ga.; Clovis), and I continue to travel from wherever I live back to see him. I have had many chiropractors over the years, but there is no one who can do the kind of spinal adjustment Dr. Steve can do. For me, his seated-up-against-the-wall adjustment is by far the most effective spinal adjustment I have ever received. The other thing that makes Dr. Steve head and shoulders above other chiropractors is his ability to talk to his patients about what the condition of their spine relates to in terms of their emotional stress and/or what is going on in their lives — and vice versa. Dr. Steve can talk to anyone — at his or her level — and allow him or her to feel understood and appreciated. He truly is a gifted chiropractor! Dr. Steve also helped my husband, who did not think highly of chiropractic care, recover from chronic low back pain he thought he would have to live with forever. Dr. Steve’s chiropractic skills changed my husband’s life! I would recommend EVERYONE to go to Dr. Steve for his or her chiropractic needs!
~Nancy C.

DR. WARD IS MAGNIFICENT! THERE IS HOPE!
I was grocery shopping at the local supermarket. At the produce department there was a woman who I was talking to. I told her I was a little woozy from having acupuncture done. She asked if I had ever gone to Dr. Steve Ward. She told me about her daughter having leukemia and was nauseous from the chemicals. Her daughter started going to Dr. Ward. Her nausea has left and her Mother started using him for her adjustments. She told me he is the best so I decided to try him. I had back surgery 12 years ago with no relief. My spine is narrowing and I am bone against spine 24 hours a day. The pain had made my life miserable and I have tried acupuncture, epidural, massages, Jacuzzi, heat packs and ice packs. I lost hope. Then I went to Dr. Ward who is local, has a friendly place where everyone is talking about how he has helped so many with their health problems. Dr. Ward is not the usual chiropractor – no. He and his father who also was a chiropractor treat patients using “wall adjustment technique”. You have got to try it — for there is hope!! You feel a sense of relief after his wall adjustment technique. Anytime I go for an adjustment my entire body has a feeling of floating — the pain isn’t there for a period of time. I had no hope before I met Dr. Steve Ward. Now I do and I am so glad that Long Beach has a terrific chiropractor and he is really “Long Beach’s Best Kept Secret”. I’m sharing this with you.
~Gwen D.

Dr. Steve is my secret weapon when headaches strike. I had significant relief from chronic neck issues/headaches after just 3 sessions. And he’s a jewel of a human being to boot. A heart centered healer who exudes compassion and top notch service. Now that’s a hard combination to find! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
~Rupina M.

For eight years – Dr. Steve has relieved many painful problems. Sometimes they are neck, ribs, lower back and knees. Dr. Wards techniques are unique! His clinic is a happy healing place. You are greeted with joy and love. He remembers your problem. He listens, explains what he is going to do to help and then he gives an incredible wall adjustment. Don’t miss the chance to let him treat you and relieve your pain.
~Betty R.

Dr. Ward has helped me immensely in my recovery. I was run over by a car and had sciatica running down my right leg. After a good amount of treatments my sciatica is so much more bearable now. I could hardly drive before I saw Dr. Ward. Now my quality of life has improved so much thanks to his unique, but effective wall adjustments. I still go in for monthly routine adjustments and can’t thank him enough for giving me the ability to going back to my everyday active lifestyle. Thanks DR. WARD!!!!!!!
~Neil S.

I had months and months of tightening in my shoulders and neck that I couldn’t shake. I would power through the pain and discomfort and take ibuprofen or try to stretch it out — to no avail. I had seen Dr. Steve’s office because I am in the area. Yesterday I just couldn’t take the pain and stress anymore. I went into the office without an appointment and within 30 minutes I was feeling better! I feel like I have blood flow to my brain once again! I had a second adjustment today that has me feeling even better. Thank you Dr. Steve!
~Kathy C.

Dr. Steve has been treating me for over 20 years.He is truly gifted as he takes away the pain in my back. For many years I had pain in my upper right side of my back and he told me as soon as I got rid of the boyfriend the pain would go away.It did! He helps both mentally and physically.I had gone to many Chiropractors prior to him and there is none like him.He is always positive and happy to see you as a patient. Thank You Dr.Steve for many years of pain relief!
~Peggy C.

I was involved in an accident, rear-ended while I was waiting at a light. I hurt my back. My general Dr kept reffering me to numerous physical therapy clinics because none of them were helping my pain. I was referred to Dr Steve by a client of mine from work. Amazingly charming man. Full of light and laughter. He suggested full spinal x-rays even though my general Dr already did them (General Dr found nothing “out of the ordinary”). Dr Steve measured and pointed out my areas of stress where I was having my pain. He started adjusting me with the “wall adjustment” method. After the very first treatment I started feeling better. Eventually my pain disappeared. I do physical labor for a living, if it wasnt for Dr Steve’s treatment I would still be jumping from physical therapist to physical therapist. Thanks Dr Steve!
~David M.

Just came back from my first visit with Dr. Ward. It was the most interesting chiropractic treatment. First he was able to tell me more about myself by just looking at my body alignment……..and then proceeded to nail why I have these various pains areas in my body…… He iced my back……..gave me a wall adjustment…and…sent me off with a CD. So far pain areas are gone and I will go back for future treatments……
~Brenda A.

Dr Ward is truly amazing. We are originally from Iowa and brought our son who had Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy to see him. We could not believe the changes in Eric after just one appointment. He re-gained some of the movement of his hands, arms, and legs and even was swimming in the hotel pool where we stayed which he had not been able to do for several years. The mental and emotional work he did with Eric gave him a whole new outlook on life and determination to “Never Give Up”. The changes we saw take place inspired us to move our family from Iowa to California to be closer to Dr Ward. Eric exceeded his life expectancy by several years and we attribute this to the mental and emotional work Dr Ward did with him as well as the adjustments. Our entire family has benefited from him in so many ways and we have continued to come to him on a weekly basis driving from Palm Springs to Long Beach.
~Nancy K.

Dr. Steve has the incredible gift of helping me see my emotional patterns so that I may then release them. He helped me through a very dark time in my life that I will now never have to repeat again! Also, his chiropractic skills are very different and more effective than other chiropractors I have been to. I am in deepest gratitude for all that he has done for me and my family!
~Terry D.

I was having severe lower back pain and chronic left knee pain. My doctor said that I would need to have my left knee replaced. Right after that appointment, I had my left knee replaced. Following the surgery my pain went through the roof. My friend mentioned that I should go to Dr. Steve. After just one adjustment my knee pain was significantly reduced and my mobility was improved. Dr. Steve gave me an amazing adjustment up against the wall and then invited me to come back later in the day for a second wall adjustment. The very next day my constant knee pain had reduced. Dr. Steve’s wall adjustment technique is very powerful and if you are suffering with any pain pattern he is the doctor for you. He also talked to me about behavioral issues associated with my pain. He knew things about me that no one on the planet would have ever known. Dr. Steve was my knee replacement miracle. Thank you Dr. Steve for helping me to get back to a healthy and active life.
~Berta C.

Dr Steve…thanks for the great service, the friendship and the years of being there for me when I needed a course correction. Your mind body work is beyond anything in the healing arts professions. I have been a chiropractor for 35 years and have practiced yours and your fathers work for the better part of that. Anyone looking for the best should check at Ward Chiropractic first…..I’d say with me but I’m retired (: Keep up the great work!!
~Neil F.

What a gem! It’s rare you meet a person who is a master at what they do. A friend told me about Dr. Steve a few weeks ago. I was having back pain so decided to give him a try. I felt so much better after my first visit. He has a unique perspective and take on the body and looks to heal the whole person. I can’t imagine going to anyone else for my chiropractic adjustments. Thanks Dr. Steve.
~Rolanda L.

He really cares about your well-being and takes the time to support reframing and reshaping your thoughts; which shows up physically in your spine. Everybody needs this work done! I believe that back surgeries, and knee and hip replacements would be prevented if people took the time for their spinal maintenance by Dr.Ward. He’s absolutley amazing!!!
~Ashley D.

I’m a long term patient of Ward Chiropractic. Beginning with Lowell Ward, Steves father, more than 25 years ago. I have received outstanding care from first Steve’s father, and Stephen Ward stands on the greatness of his father’s knowledge and achievements. I have endured injuries from car accidents and the overall trauma of life. The Ward’s represent an exceptional understanding of the foundational issues of injury including physical, psychological, and emotional dimensions. There are rare and few chiropractors with the knowledge and skill equalling the assistance to healing that Stephen Ward has achieved.
~Rick M.

During the course of my chiropractic treatment spanning twenty years, Dr. Ward has been the only physician who has achieved successful treatment of my back through his method of wall adjustment. As well, of successful neck adjustments on my person has been off the charts. His innate understanding of how negative human thought passed on generationally manifests into disease, physical and mental challenges. I have always understood these concepts to be true, but lacked the knowledge to put this application into action to heal myself. Dr. Ward is faithful to all his clients with continuous support verbally in conjunction with adjustment. This is his winning formula to change our negative belief systems, which holds us prisoners in our ailing bodies and fractured lives. So generous in spirit he creates a customized CD, that is played daily to use as a tool to imprint the change in our thinking that allows us to live as our true selves and not through the “delusional tinted glasses” of those that have gone before us. Personally, Steve has been a blessed awakening for me to understand how unhealthy language to self has manifested in me, both mentally and physically. Through his astounding insights he has helped me to relieve my physical pain, alleviating chronic headaches and minimize a former lifetime sentence of severe depression. For the first time in my life I breathe easier knowing I truly have an advocate in my well being. This he offers to each and every person that walks through his door seeking help. There is an unwritten promise that any person in the fold of his care will receive. “Rest assured Dr. Ward will give his very best effort to you in all ways”. This kind of self less love in and of itself begins the healing process.
~Susan S.

I have been going to Dr Steve Ward off and on for about 20 years and he always giving me relief when my back is acting up.
~Violet M.

Dr. Ward has been able to pin point my stress build up and offer instant stress relief to my head, neck and back. I’ve been a patient for more than 4 years and have enjoyed my association with him and his office.
~Mark D.

I have chronic low-back and neck pain, and I’ve been seeing Dr. Steve for years now. He and his father, Dr. Lowell Ward pioneered the approach to treating the whole spine and not just parts of it. I always feel great when I leave, his adjustments are state-of-the-art!
~Jay F.

After a life long struggle with on and off back pain and migranes I choose to accept that this was the way life was going to be. I am fortunate enough to have had no serious physical illness in my young 26 years. I have had to survive with family struggles of addiction and deep inherited pain and hurt patterns. After the passing of my Mother at 20 life seemed more upside down than ever. I spent the next 5 year in a fog and at 25 found hope once I met Dr. Stephen Ward. His entire treatment (mind, body, soul) is what I needed in order to get well. The physical adjustments are a huge releif, a weight lifted off my shoulders (literally). No more migranes, headaches and my head, neck, back, and sciatic pain are in check. If something stressful comes up, I go get a tune up, a little coaching to help refrain my attitude on a particular conflict, and when I leave I feel so much joy and love for life. My life has been transformed by Dr. Stephen Ward- he took me down to my foundation and gave me the tools to create the person I always wanted to be, and better yet the person I already was (without all the junk that wasn’t mine!). Dr. Steve will be the last Doctor I will ever need.
~Denie R.

I’ve never trusted chiropractors; but, one day my neck was hurting so bad I couldn’t turn to look over my shoulder while driving. My friend had been telling me to go to Dr. Ward for years, I finally decided to go see him. My Doctor said “a chiropractor would not be able to fix my neck, only stretching and heat would fix it.” After one visit I was able to turn my neck, after two visits the pain was gone! My doctor then said “maybe he can fix your groin pain as well!” I also had lower back issues which Dr. Ward helped with his wall adjustments. He also explained that emotional pain can cause physical pain. He has been a rock to me, physically and emotionally. I brought my teenage boys to see him, and they thought he was the best doctor they had ever seen!!
~Monica C.

Dr Ward’s wall adjustment technique is exactly I need to have my back feeling better. This method leaves me feeling much more energy. I really like what Steve does for me!
~Robert N.

I have been coming to Dr. Ward off and on for about 15 years. The adjustments have helped me get through rough spots when my back is over-worked or stressed. Everyone that I have recommended him to continues to see him whether it is regularly or for an occasional adjustment. He and his office staff are great.
~Dawn T.

For the last month, I was having severe pain in my left shoulder. As a hairstylist and a mother to a very active 2 year old, the pain was affecting my job and my ability to do basic tasks. I was feeling hopeless that I would ever feel normal again. Thanks to a referral from a friend, I went in to see Dr Steve. He adjusted me twice in one day. The next day, I woke up with NO PAIN AT ALL! Dr. Steve is truly a miracle worker. I was back to normal, cleaning and chasing my daughter around. Thank you Dr. Steve.
~Sarah R.

After being in a bad car crash years ago, I was left with pretty severe back pain that wouldn’t go away. Dr. Steve was able to alleviate the pain and get me feeling better. Even after he fixed the car crash damage to my back, I continue to see Dr. Steve with any back pain issues from everyday life. I’ve referred friends and family and they’ve all had a positive experience as well.
~Jeff E.

I love that I don’t need an appointment to get an adjustment! I just walk in and I’m never waiting for more than 5 minutes. Dr. Ward always makes me feel better and I love his positive energy. The massage by Stephanie is also the best! I highly recommend this place!
~Jennifer L.

Dr. Ward’s unique approach to mind/body healing through chiropractic is nothing short of life changing. If you are ready to make a quantum leap toward improving your health and your quality of life, you need to meet Dr. Steve!
~Camille G.

I always enjoy coming in to see Dr. Ward for an adjustment.. Dr. Ward always has a smile and is so warm and caring. He seems to always know exactly where I am aching and where I need an adjustment. I appreciate the fact that I don’t have to make an appointment and the fact that I can be in and out of the office in 10 to 20 minutes tops. If I meet someone who needs a chiropractor, I let them know bout Ward Chiropractic.
~Sandra T.

Dr. Steve is amazing. He is intuitive and clear and gave me not only an adjustment, but also insights that I willl value and apply to my life. I love his energy and enthusiasm.

I’ve been going to Dr.Ward for about 5 years now and have come to know him as one of the most remarkable people I’ve ever met. He has helped me tremendously physically, mentally and emotionally. He has a holistic approach and is very knowledgable about the connection between mind and body. I highly recommend Dr.Ward to anyone who is looking for a chiropractor.
~Alison P.

I was brought in by a friend, about 3 years ago…I have suffered from migraines since I was 7 years old…I am l also hypertensive..working with DR. Ward allowed me to decrease both my migraines and my blood pressure. Just last year I took a bad fall while pregnant…DR. Ward and I are working to get me in better shape. I LOVE DR. Ward…I have brought my children , family and friends to see him. I am truly blessed to have found him. I plan to keep visiting him for as long as I live.
~Gloria A.

Dr. Steve is the best doctor I have ever experienced. He takes time to really work on each individual and goes above and beyond the call of duty. I have been treated by countless chiropractors over the years, and he’s the best I’ve ever found. I would recommend him highly to anybody who wants and seeks a pain-free life. He is very professional and has an incredible bedside manner. His unique and Heartcentered approach to healing is amazing! I love Dr. Steve! He’s also a humble sweetheart!!!
~Lori S.

I have been seeing Dr. Ward for several months. I am not a fan of chiropractors and spent most of my life staying away from bone crunchers. However, when I first met Dr. Ward, he accurately told me what my emotional issues were. With the chiropractic visits I received hope that the pain in my shoulder that I had for 2 years was going to go away. He told me it took a long time for me get the pinched nerve which came from carrying a lot of emotional load. This caused me to lean forward thus giving me a pinched nerve. Dr. Ward told me what I had to do and it would take a while to fix the problem since it took a long time for me to develop this condition. I am now almost pain-free and I worship the ground Dr. Ward walks on. He is the greatest, the best health practitioner I have ever gone to for help! I give Dr. Ward 5 stars and an unqualified recommendation!!
~Daphne C.

Our family has known and been treated by Dr. Ward for 17 years. He is a genuinely gifted practitioner. His knowledge and perspective have resulted in our family and individual health being immensely improved. Dr. Ward is not just a chiropractor—though that is certainly sufficient. He is a compassionate and loving human being. His patients are literally at home in his office. We have experienced a strong sense of family each visit to his office. I so very much look forward to seeing Steve. Our conversations are profoundly interesting, educational, and transforming. I simply cannot strongly enough endorse individuals to take advantage of an opportunity to change their lives. Dr. Steve Ward will, with no doubt at all, enhance the quality of your life. Our family continues to see Steve because of the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health he brings into our family. Call Bob at 541.218.7459 for questions and conversation
~Bob M.

Playing tennis for many years, I began experiencing pain and stiffness in my wrist and shoulder, gradual and sporadic for a few years but eventually pain was always there . Icing, massage, taking days off and prescribed anti-infamatory medication would bring relief but is was still there. Dr Ward was recommened by a gentleman who had his chronic lower back pain resolved, as he stated “My pain is gone”. I visited Dr Ward, we spoke at length, he examined my spine and wall adjusted my upper back. I also had a rib out which he put back into place. That wall adjustment technique is amazing. I left his office with my pain on a scale from 1 to 10 at a 1. He recommended I return the next day for a follow up treatment. I returned with my pain still at a 1. I was treated and left feeling even less pain, a couple of hours later I realized I was feeling no pain at all. I’m writing this review ten months after the fact. I have visited Dr Ward three times in these ten months and to this day I remain pain free. I recommend Dr Ward whenever I get the opportunity. Dr. Ward, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
~Tommy G.

CAN’T RECOMMEND DR. WARD HIGHLY ENOUGH! Between his wall adjustments and tailbone treatments, Dr Ward has dramatically increased my quality of life by decreasing the pain that I have experienced from various injuries. He is a truly gifted! I first came to Dr Ward due to tailbone pain that I had suffered off and on over 3 decades (due to a tailbone break at 18 years of age). After the first tailbone treatment, the pain was remarkably decreased. After a couple more treatments, the pain was gone. I have him repeat the tailbone treatments about three times each year for maintenance. This has totally has taken care of the tailbone issue and has been very helpful for other issues, as well. I also have seen him for other injuries that had caused me great pain. Some examples: a car accident – caused neck and upper back pain. A rotator cuff issue – caused shoulder pain. A hard fall on concrete – caused shoulder and arm pain. In each case, in the course a 2 or 3 treatments, I was dramatically better! I have seen other chiropractors – some of them quite good. But, none of the others were able to help me so consistently, quickly, and therefore, so affordably. I could not give Dr Ward a higher recommendation!
~Robyn N.

Our son has been treated by Dr. Steven Ward for over 19 years with chiropractic adjustments, spinal x-rays, wall adjustments with special attention devoted to the most important mind-body connection due to the condition of DMD. Dr. Ward’s unique approach to treating clients has been quite successful for our son as well as our whole family. For 19 years we have traveled from Oregon to CA for this specialized treatment as it has improved all our lives significantly – a major miracle!! We highly recommend Dr. Ward for his unique chiropractic services which are always rendered with professionalism and the highest professional standards.
~Joyce M.

Dr. Ward is truly a gifted man and a miracle worker! Recently, I broke my right clavicle in a snowboarding accident and needed immediate assistance due to unbearable pain. The next day, I was told by a chiropractor, that he could not work on me until the broken collar bone healed. I came to Dr. Ward the very next day, he used my healthy arm to adjust the ribs that were out of place on the injured collar bone side. My level of pain immediately changed from a level 9 to a 2. It was a miracle! I would highly recommend this man to work on anyone. His background story plus his amazing personality shows how much he cares for his patients.
~Josh H.

I had a bad shoulder for many years after i broke it in an accident at work. I had surgery to repair it but the results were substantially less than satisfactory. I got a new job in an office and my poor posture caused a severe pain in my neck and left shoulder blade. it persisted for a week and i thought if i took the weekend off it would get better. it didn’t get better; it got much worse. It was so bad that if i didn’t bow my head i had level 10 pain. i realized that i literally could not go to work like this. I thought of seeing the doctor but i knew there was nothing quick they would be able to do for me so instead i went to my old friend Steve Ward. He was normally closed on Monday but he met me early monday morning and within ten minutes the pain was reduced by 90%! I returned three hours later and the rest is history! I don’t know where i would be if he hadn’t been available to help me! thanks Steve!
~Dan H.

I have been seeing Dr. Ward along with my family for over 19 years. His work and the amazing techniques he employs have been critical to the continued health of myself in particular, as well as the other members of my family. Dr. Ward is far more than just a chiropractor, and through the use of his mental emotional stress profile, he has helped me understand the important role the mental emotional connection plays in neuromuscular conditions. Through adherence to his model of the mental emotional stress profile, as well as receiving the recommended chiropractic treatments my health has remained remarkably good in spite of my neuromuscular condition. I am a firm believer that Dr. Ward’s methods will make a significant difference in the overall health of any individual who steadfastly adheres to his overall treatment method. I highly recommend Dr. Ward to everyone who is experiencing any kind of health difficulty.

I was referred to Dr. Ward by a well-known chiropractor five years ago and today I am living out my full physical potential, thanks to his Discerning and Anointed Touch. Dr. Ward is highly qualified, professional and compassionate. His staff Tanya and Ashton are the best. I Highly recommend Ward Chiropractic.

This is an update to a former review many months ago. Dr. Ward is my miracle worker. I had low back surgery around 12 years ago to no avail. I tried meds, acupuncture, other chiropractors but it was meant for me to try Dr. Ward. He is truly a miracle worker. If you feel like you just can’t do some of the things you used to — for you may be in a lot of pain go try out Dr. Steve. One adjustment and you will feel relief. He has the kindest heart, a big tall teddy bear and as he wraps his arms around you for a wall adjustment you can just melt. After his wall adjustment your body makes you feel you can move more freely – and when you come back time after time — you will see results. Just being in his lobby it is just like the old times when patients talk about how successful his treatments have been. It is like coming home to family — everyone you meet has a success story regarding Dr. Steve. His staff are wonderful – a kind word to one and all. Believe me – I talk from my heart — and truly believe that Dr. Ward is one miracle worker. Just ask anyone. If you are in pain see him once and you too will be a believer!! 100% I recommend Dr. Steve Ward.

I’ve had a wrist injury due to basketball. I went to see Dr. Ward to help better my wrist through chiropractic. He thoroughly explained and gave me insight on how the wrist connects to the spine and how the spine has to be corrected first before the actual wrist. I’ve really learned a lot from his explanation. My wrist started with little extension possible, but after a few adjustments from Dr. Ward all in one week, my wrist can almost reach full extension with no pain. He’s helped me get through my weekly basketball games by giving me adjustments before. And the Wall Adjustment is something else. I can feel it adjusting each part of the spine. I really recommend Dr. Ward as your chiropractor. He does a great job and loves what he does.

If you live within a 2 hour drive of Ward Chiropractic in Long Beach, trust me on this…it’s worth the travel time! Dr. Ward is the BEST chiropractor you will find in Southern California; and I don’t say this lightly! I know what I am talking about as I am a chiropractic assistant with years of experience and I know what a good chiropractor is all about, so I am quite certain that you will agree after your FIRST visit with Dr. Ward. And even though I, myself have relocated to South Carolina, I still refer my CA friends to him. Now, I am urging YOU….make an appointment with Dr. Ward TODAY and GET WELL!

If you are a proponent of the mind – body connection Dr. Ward is your man ! First of all, I have received the following treatments from him as I wisely utilize all of his gifts: Chiropractic, wall adjustment, craniosacral therapy, massage and mind-body connection. My body carries many emotional wounds, which I unconsciously guard in my torso. I grew up in an alcoholic home with a mentally ill mother, I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and worst of all my child was killed. Consequently, until I met Dr. Ward and experienced his wall adjustment there had never been a chiropractor able to adjust this area of my body. Additionally, I have a slight curvature, which complicated things even further. Prior to having a fully body x-ray and having an extensive psychological profile done via the X-ray results , Steve astounded me with his psychosocial acuity of my life after only one exam. He is an emotional detective of the body. What made my torso adjustment accessible is that he immediately gave me a c.d. to listen to every day to change the negative way I speak to myself. I didn’t realize how often I projected fear and self negation in my thoughts and speech patterns. As I began to conquer this life pattern more my body began to relax through the trust created with Dr. Ward and of course, with the relationship I now have with myself. Pricing: He is reasonable. It is what it is. No padding the bill with unnecessary bells and whistle. All I can tell you is that I have had 25 cumulative years of therapy and wish that I had met him way back then. I guess you have to trust the journey to where you are now, but my feeling is if that had happened I would of cut to the chase ! Today, I am so grateful to have Dr. Ward as a crucial part of my holistic network.
~Susan S.

I have known Dr. Steve a long time, considerably longer than he has been known as Dr. Steve. In fact, when Dr. Steve was just a kid I grew up going to his father for my chiropractic care. Once I started going to Dr. Steve I began to feel that chiropractic care would always be a very important part of my health routine — as important as exercising and leading a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Steve has been my chiropractor through various moves that took me well away from the Long Beach area (including Elk Grove; Newnan, Ga.; Clovis), and I continue to travel from wherever I live back to see him. I have had many chiropractors over the years, but there is no one who can do the kind of spinal adjustment Dr. Steve can do. For me, his seated-up-against-the-wall adjustment is by far the most effective spinal adjustment I have ever received. The other thing that makes Dr. Steve head and shoulders above other chiropractors is his ability to talk to his patients about what the condition of their spine relates to in terms of their emotional stress and/or what is going on in their lives — and vice versa. Dr. Steve can talk to anyone — at their level — and allow them to feel understood and appreciated. He truly is a gifted chiropractor! Dr. Steve also helped my husband, who did not think highly of chiropractic care, recover from chronic low back pain he thought he would have to live with forever. Dr. Steve’s chiropractic skills changed my husband’s life! I would recommend EVERYONE to go to Dr. Steve for their chiropractic needs!
~Nan C.

I went to see Dr. Ward for the first time about 15 years ago in terrible pain. I had seen another chiropractor that morning and the other chiropractor had exacerbated the pain I was in. I left Dr. Ward’s office in NO PAIN! He helped me to understand my condition from a Mind-Body perspective and how I could prevent pain in the future…….all in a half hour. I have seen him all these years because he is trustworthy, honest, extremely knowledgeable, caring, empathetic, compassionate and gets results ! I cannot speak highly enough of him. He is of great character and you will feel safe entrusting your wellbeing with him.
~Andrea G.

I’ve been coming to Dr. Ward’s practice for 16 years, since his father was the lead chiropractor. Absolutely wonderful service and although I am now in school in an entirely different state I make sure to see him every time I’m home. Consistently good adjustments and he really knows what he’s talking about. He is extremely friendly and really cares about his patients. I would absolutely recommend him to all and everybody looking for a chiropractor!
~Sabrina B.

What? Left curve, right curve, tells you my mental and emotional stress started before my parents were born??? YES IT DOES! Dr. Ward’s analysis of my full spine x rays has given me sustained relief from 15 years of chronic pain, helped me understand why I have it, and taught me how to cope with it. Go see him.
~Judy R.

Stephen is a man that speaks from his heart and speaks to your spine. He learned from the best, his father, a pioneer in the industry. But Stephen is an original, One who has perfected his craft. He is committed to the well being of his patients. I’ve known Dr. Stephen Ward, since 1989 he’s there when I need him, which is a lot less now than before. Ward Chiropractic is simply the best. But don’t just take my word for it.
~Robert G.

Have you ever been on a Cox or Leander table? and we’ve all had aggressive side postures resulting in loud audible releases… well this is what I was looking for when calling Dr.Ward for the first time. What he said to me on the phone that day was so -not what I was looking for- curious that I set an appointment to come on in and see Steve to get adjusted…. There will be change in areas and patterns not expected beyond the scope of your achy spine. For me it’s about the positive attitude and indeed he’s contagious, yep’ I’m infected every time I set foot through his office door… add this to his chiro skills and Dr.Steve is my man….
~Chris R.

My wife and I have been coming to Dr. Steve for a couple of years, we have adjustments physically and emotionally, Dr. Steve gives us immediate and long term results and a tool box to leave with! Dr. Steve’s techniques are absolutely amazing, the time we spend with him is priceless, we recommend his services to everyone we know and they all receive the same benefits we do!!! He is one of a kind, Gifted!!!
~Steve and Dorothy M.

I was grocery shopping at the local supermarket. At the produce department there was a woman who I was talking to. I told her I was a little woozy from having acupuncture done. She asked if I had ever gone to Dr. Steve Ward. She told me about her daughter having leukemia and was nauseous from the chemicals. Her daughter started going to Dr. Ward. Her nauseum has left and her Mother started using him for her adjustments. She told me he is the best so I decided to try him. I had back surgery 12 years ago with no relief. My spine is narrowing and I am bone against spine 24 hours a day. The pain had made my life miserable and I have tried acupuncture, epidermals, massages, jacuzzi, heat packs and ice packs. I lost hope. Then I went to Dr. Ward who is local, has a friendly place where everyone is talking about how he has helped so many with their health problems. Dr. Ward is not the usual chiropractor – no..he and his father who also was a chiropractor treat patients using “wall adjustment technique”. You have got to try it — for there is hope!! You feel a sense of relief after his wall adjustment technique. Anytime I go for an adjustment my entire body has a feeling of floating — the pain isn’t there for a period of time. I had no hope before I met Dr. Steve Ward. Now I do and I am so glad that Long Beach has a terrific chiropractor and he is really “Long Beach’s Best Kept Secret”. I’m sharing this with you.
~Depaz G.

Dr. Steve was able to immediately relieve my chronic lower back pain and tingling down my left leg. Dr. Steve enlightened me and my entire family on a level that I never expected. Relieving the family of the dysfunctional chain that bounded us. I found that many of the issues that have impacted my family had originated way before me . What was most surprising, revealing and relieving was those issues that I thought were directly related to me began in a prior generation and now I no longer live with that unhealthy burden. His expertise In the mind-body and spiritual sense is why he earns the right to be called Dr. Wonderful. His pricing was very affordable and the result was life-changing. I highly recommended him to all my friends, co-workers and family. P.S. Dr. Wonderful went far and beyond anything I ever expected. My family and I have been transformed, this was a blessing from God.
~Dom G.

We have been going to Dr. Steve since we moved to California in 2007. He is the most effective chiropractor I have ever been to. We have seen many chiropractors with a variety of techniques over the years as we have lived in six states. The first thing I did after our car accident in 2011 was call Dr. Steve. Literally, from the site where we were rear ended. I truly realized how talented Dr. Steve is after our car accident. His adjustments kept us from suffering more serious neck pain and damage from our injuries. My four children, husband and I all get adjustments from Dr. Steve. I trust him fully and know that he is a doctor we can always count on.
~Beth C.

I have been to many chiropractors and and Dr. Ward is the best. The technique he uses actually works. I can be in and out in 5 minutes and I instantly feel better. I wish he was open more days!!
~Ali G.

Armed with experience between ” a” Chiropractor who had helped me feel better immediately after treatment and all the rest who hurt me worse, was absolutely fortunate the day I walked into Dr. Wards office to see if he used a “kachinker” not sure of its technical name but it a device that helps adjust gently . So scared of more pain and full of skepticism, it had been five long years since my last visit to my former beloved Chiropractor who had moved far away. I was scared and a uncertain wreck, fearing I would never find another Chiropractor who understood my special needs(Lupus/Fybrom, muscle problems). When I entered Dr. Steven Wards office, it was filled with people waiting to see him. As I began to ask the pretty receptionist about Dr. Wards technique and services, the clients in the office rushed to answer my questions before she could get a word out! Everyone there that day, loved him. telling me about their personal history with Dr. Ward and gave him such high recommendations. In agreement they all told me, I was definitely in the right place. Talking to Dr. Ward himself, not only did I find him really nice and informative his happiness was very contagious. I also found out his Dad invented the “Kachinker”! some fun trivia but also it was obvious the dedication to help others, runs strong in his family. Needless to say, I was quite impressed and came back later in the day for my own visit. That was about five months ago, Since my first adjustment that day, I have returned often and am Thankful for being able to walk out of his office feeling better then when I came in. Each time I feel bitten by the happiness bug and his care is so affordable too. Relieved to have found him, I have had the pleasure of recommending him to others. One friend sees him pretty regular and he has helped her tremendously with something her former Chiropractor never could. Another person who said that the last person who she asked also referred Dr. Ward! And others who tell me they want their next Chiropractic visit, to be with him. Lastly, I brought my 15 year old son in who had just recovered from a broken ankle and he said after his adjustment that the pain and the weight of the pain in his leg had gone right away. It is with great happiness and pleasure I recommend Dr. Ward to you!

Well its been an awesome journey for my family you see my boys were diagnosed with a rare disease called becker muscular dystrophy. When the doctor gave us that news it was very scary because they said there was basically nothing that we could do. Thats something you never want to hear as a parent, we always want to be able to keep our kids safe and happy and never want to see them hurt or have pain. This disease causes a lot of pain and can cause loss of mobility. So we were very upset and didn’t know where to turn. Then we found out about Ward Chiropractic and how he worked with children with MD and had amazing results. So we went and not only did the boys feel better physically but emotionally its been the best thing for our family! At first it was all about the boys, but now my daughter and I think its all about us we love getting adjustments and Dr.Ward gives so much time and care he’s the most giving, loving doc you’ll ever meet. You always leave feeling great! Its been 9yrs and we come all the way from New Jersey! So I definitely would say go see Dr.Ward your body and mind will feel so good.
~Tanya B.

I first took my son (muscular dystrophy) to Ward Chiropractic in 1991. Dr. Steve got immediate, outstanding results with Garth. I have seen many other similar over the years. I don’t think there is anyone anywhere who gets better results with tough cases than Dr. Steve.
~Richard D.

I suffer from severe complicated scoliosis. Looking for any alternative to risky surgery I came to Ward Chiropractic as a teenager. I felt so much better after just 1 treatment . I’ve been coming ever since from Riverside every week for 3/4 of my life! So happy to find a chiropractor that understands & is willing to take on even the toughest cases. I’m always amazed at the instant relief after a treatment. I highly recommend giving this a try before making any major decisions on how best to treat or manage any severe conditions. ANY relief from major pain is welcome!
~Michelle S.

Not only have I received the best adjustment ever, but Dr. Steve also advises me on how the stresses in my life are affecting my spinal health. The adjustment helps me feel better immediately and the suggestions for ‘stress’ reduction always help keep me in good health!
~Mari K.

Dr. Steve is amazing! His ability to pin point my issues both physically and emotionally has been a life saver. I have learned so much about how my emotional health effects my physical health and his kind words and reassurance are always of great comfort to me! I can’t say enough about how much his work has changed my life!
~Dana H.

Dr. Ward has been adjusting me for about 5 years now. I suffer from pain in my lower neck, from years of “mousing” on the PC and working much harder than most people would ever expect from me… After my adjustment by Dr. Ward I experience immediatly relief of my neck pain and I experience an overall sense of wellness for at least a few days. I love that Dr. Ward and his staff are all happy, up-beat people that truly love what they do. I always feel so welcomed when I step into their office. If you haven’t alreay tried Dr. Ward, give him a go…you won’t regret it!
~Roselia D.

I had so many aches and pains, after just 3 treatments my back was feeling better. years of backs aches and Steve Magic hands did wonders. Really we should keep it a secret so I do not have a long wait in his waiting room HE IS THE MAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
~Brian B.

After a car accident when I was 16 and a few years of suffering the physical aftermath of that day, I was introduced to Chiropractic care by an up and staring Chiropractor. i had relief from my extensive visits and found that Chiropractic was for me. I continued with this doctor and later a different doctor when I relocated to another town. While I had relief there was something missing. A coworker visited Ward Chiropractic and shared the experience. While it sounded like what I had experienced before, there were differences, so I made an appointment and checked it out. Dr. Stephen Wards upbeat, can do way off care was different. But the adjustment was the key to my further and better healing. There was no face down on a table adjustments, it was against a wall. which provided better adjustment which was longer lasting. I had never felt better, I continue to thrive, My adjustments are less frequent, then with the other doctors and more effective, It has been over 10 years and I recommend Ward Chiropractic to those who are in need of healing. Body, mind and spirit. YOU WON’T BE SORRY!
~Kim S.

Dr. Steve has transformed and supported me physically and emotionally. His technique not only improves any pain I experience from my career as a hairdresser to emotional pain I’ve withheld from birth. He also explains to me about our generational issues that arise throughout life. He is spiritual and knowledgable and has helped me live a more positive life! He is a true healer sent from God.
~Tabatha W.

I found Dr. Steve through a good friend of mind who’s been seeing him for the past year. I’ve always been a little hesitant with chiropractors because I’ve had some really bad experiences, but Dr. Steve has changed that perception. I’m extremely grateful to have found him and, even though I live in LA, I find the drive to Long Beach to be worth ever minute of traffic. His experience and wisdom is priceless! My body has changed on so many levels which has deeply affected my emotional and mental states. The true testament to his work is given by the people around me who have been commenting on how different I look as well as how much happier I am. Thank you, Dr. Steve, for all of your dedication and passion that you give to your work and share with us, your patients!
~Joseph S.

Dr. Steve is absolutely wonderful. His adjustments are amazing, never hurt and always helps. He also works on my 87 year old aunt and 17 year old daughter with effective results. My aunt stays quite mobile because of him. Been seeing him for past 2 years. Highly recommend!
~Joyce M.

Dr. Ward is amazing! I just started seeing him a couple months ago but he has already helped me so much. He could not adjust me the first day so he came up with a new approach that has worked every time. For me, the emotional support and guidance is even better than the physical relief of my pain. He believes in me so much and it is so comforting. Everyone is so happy around him and he truly makes you feel so loved. I look forward to seeing him all week. I highly encourage everyone to call him to help you… no one else will compare!!!
