Dr. Katie L. Holstein

Chiropractic care worked!

I was in a lot of pain prior to seeing Dr. Katie. I couldn’t do anything, even simple everyday tasks like sitting down and standing up without excruciating pain. My primary care physician told me to take pain medication and when I still felt no relief I took a friend’s advice to see schedule an appointment with Dr. Katie. I was so grateful when her office kept me in mind when they had a cancellation and called me so that I could be seen earlier than my original scheduled appointment. After my first visit, Dr. Katie recommend some stretches for me, walking and using ice while at home. I listened to everything she said and went home and did all of it. The next morning when I awoke, I was expecting to start yet another day in excruciating pain and to my surprise I woke up and had no pain at all! I went from about a 9/10 on a pain scale to feeling a 0/10! Chiropractic care worked! I haven’t had to take the pain medication and I’m feeling so much relief after just one visit!

Years of Pain Relieved in One Visit

I have suffered with a painful, stiff foot for years. I couldn’t pinpoint the exact location- sometimes the arch, sometimes the heel, sometimes the outside top, and sometimes my ankle. I don’t remember ever injuring it but it just progressively got worse until I was limping regularly and my instep became higher, making some shoes impossible to wear. The limp and pain began to negatively affect my quality of life, as I am a very physically active person. And the pain disrupted my sleep at night. I iced. I applied heat. I self diagnosed plantar fasciitis and spent money on expensive orthotics and a sleeping boot. I went to a podiatrist who diagnosed fallen arch and sold me a brace to support it. I went to an orthopedic surgeon who diagnosed me with left perineal tendonitis and sold me an even more expensive brace. He explained that it was important to immobilize it until it could heal. But things only got worse. A year later I went to Dr. Katie because I felt that all the limping was effecting the way I walked and moved and I started having hip, low back, and neck pain. I mentioned my foot pain, never expecting her to do anything about it and I was skeptical that she could make a difference if she did. But in addition to treating my other complaints, she also started working on my foot and ankle each time I went. Even during my first foot treatment and adjustment, she had gotten some movement and was able to get my instep back in place. I noticed a difference leaving the office and walking out to my car. She suggested I use a foot roller and stretch the tightness between my appointments. I noticed a difference right away and as my treatment progressed, I have stopped limping and am pain free! I find it funny that the medical professional’s advice was to immobilize and Dr. Katie’s advice was the exact opposite…to get it moving, to work on it with massage, stretching, and adjustments! I’m actually amazed that I suffered for years but within weeks of starting treatment with Dr. Katie, I’ve found unexpected relief!

Thanks for Everything

“I went to a hand specialist who diagnosed a cyst on my wrist which would most likely need to be surgically removed. At my visit to Dr. Katie I happened to show her this cyst. She was more than happy to look and suggested a manipulation along with an ultrasound treatment. I am so happy to say after the first treatment the cyst has significantly reduced in size and the chances of me having to have surgery are greatly reduced. Today I had my second treatment and the cyst is now very hard to see at all. Can’t wait to go back to the hand specialist and show him what my chiropractor did for me. Thank you Dr. Katie for all you do.”

Simply Amazing

“Dr. Katie is amazing! I used to have to pop pill after pill for my excruciating headaches 4-5 times a week for over a year and I have been pill free since going to her. I came in having a lot of excruciating pain where it hurt to move. Now I am starting to trust my body and feel whole again thanks to her amazing care. She is simply amazing.”

The Best There Is

“I was suffering from severe stabbing pain in my lower back and abdomen for a year in a half. After seeing many different doctors with no relief, a friend recommended that I see Dr. Katie. At my first visit, Dr. Katie made me feel very comfortable and thoroughly explained everything to me. After just a few short visits, my condition has improved and I hardly have any pain. Today was the first day that I can truly say I have experienced relief since this condition began. It is a miracle! I am so grateful for Dr. Katie. I highly recommend Riverside Chiropractic to everyone. Not only is Dr. Katie a wonderful doctor, but her office staff is very kind, very helpful, and very patient.”

The Best There Is

“I used to suffer from severe neck pain. My neck used to be very stiff and uncomfortable. After seeing Dr. Katie, I feel wonderful! She eased all of the tension and I am able to move my neck again. I have never met a doctor like her, she spent a lot of time with me and was very empathetic. She is the best there is!”

Made Me Feel at Home

“I had terrible neck pain when I first came to see Dr. Katie. It was so bad that I couldn’t even turn my head. After just a few visits, the pain is gone! This was my first experience with a chiropractor. Dr. Katie and her staff were so nice and pleasant. They explained everything and made me feel like I was at home!”

Pain Has Been Reduced

I have suffered with lower back pain for many years. Prior to seeing Dr. Katie I could only walk if I was hunched over. After only 3 sessions, I can actually walk straight and the pain has been reduced. Thank you Dr. Katie!

Not Experiencing Any Symptoms At All Anymore

I visited Dr. Katie Holstein while visiting from Arizona. I had severe burning and stinging pain in my mid back, sciatica pain in my leg, as well as a hiatal hernia that was giving me a lot of trouble. Dr. Katie gives the most thorough chiropractic care that I have ever received in my life! She uses many techniques and is just a gentle spirit that brings healing just through her presence. She was able to eliminate my pain and put my hernia back below my diaphragm so that I was not experiencing any symptoms at all anymore. She is amazing. I think this is the best Chiropractor and overall health center in this area of Toms River or all of New Jersey! I don’t know if I’ll be able to find someone to match her skill and personality in Arizona.

100% Better!

Great office! Dr. Katie really cares about your all around well being. They always do their best to accommodate schedules and get you appointments. I went in for a pulled muscle in my neck and after a few adjustments, I felt 100% better! Highly recommend this practice!

Zero Low Back Pain

For the past 2 years I have had to take pain medication including muscle relaxers everyday. After getting adjusted by Dr. Katie I haven’t used any pain medication in 2 weeks! After a 4 hour performance with my band, I have had zero low back pain! I didn’t think it would work that quickly, it really is amazing!

No More Numbness In My Hands And Wrist

When I first started seeing Dr. Katie over the summer, I was experiencing numbness in my hands and wrist. I had seen other chiropractors in the past but they never treated the pain in my hands. Since seeing Dr. Katie, the numbness is gone and my regular treatments with her keep the symptoms from returning!
~ Kristine S.

Relief From Neck Pain And Arthritis

I had been suffering from neck pain and arthritis before coming to see Dr. Katie. I had tried injections and physical therapy but never had results like this! After just the first visit I had immediate relief! I wish I came and began my treatments earlier!
~ Katherine B.

Less Sinus Infections

Since coming to Dr Katie I’ve had far less frequent sinus infections and trips to my primary care physician. I went for a well visit recently and it had been almost 2 years since I had been there for sinuses!
~ Stacey P.

Walking Better

Prior to seeing Dr. Katie I was suffering from severe pain and had trouble walking for about 5 months. In less than a month since I began my treatments, I’m walking better and the pain has subsided. I have had excellent results. I am blessed to have found Dr. Katie!
~ Carolyn L.

Pain I Was Experiencing Prior To The Visit Has Been Sustainably Decreased.

I have to admit that I was skeptical of the treatment after my initial visit, as I didn’t know what to expect since I had never been to a chiropractor before. But, three days later and the pain I was experiencing prior to the visit has been sustainably decreased and is manageable. I look forward to continued reductive and corrective treatments with Dr. Katie.
~ Ryan M.

Numbness Greatly Reduced

I started going to Riverside Chiropractic after about a month of numbness in my leg. After my first two visits my numbness was greatly reduced, and now after five visits I no longer have any discomfort whatsoever. Dr. Katie was great in diagnosing me and explaining what was happening with my body. I leave her practice feeling loose and refreshed every time. I would definitely recommend her to anyone suffering from back pain or discomfort.

My First Go At Chiropractic Care And I Can’t Say Enough

I just got back from my visit with Dr. Katie and my back is 100 times better than when I walked in. It feels good to be able to walk straight up and not have that dull, constant pain that has burdened me for months and months. I am and will be forever grateful to her. She is very informative and you know what’s going to happen every step of the way. This is my first go at chiropractic care and I can’t say enough about it. Don’t wait. Thanks Dr. Katie!

Wonderful Effective

Dr. Katie has been fantastic. Her treatments are gentle, but wonderfully effective and I began to feel results after the very first visit. She has been very informative. I suffer from an auto-immune disease and many of the symptoms I thought (and my immunologist thought) were progression of the disease, turned out to be due to misalignment of my spine. Dr. Katie’s adjustments haven’t just relieved aches and pains, but have also relieved headaches, facial pain, discomfort, fatigue, etc., and I’m even sleeping better. After six months of feeling lousy, I am finally starting to feel normal again–all due to her treatments. She’s also helping me with a hiatal hernia and resulting acid reflux. I’ve had chiropractic care before, but she’s the best I’ve been to and she has some pretty cool gadgets that help her assess your needs and assist with the treatment.

I Have Never Experienced This Level Of Customer Service

I have never experienced this level of customer service or care in a medical office. From the second I walked in I was surprised how welcoming the entire staff was. Even being greeted by the secretary who got up from the desk and walked around the wall to shake my hand and introduce herself. Dr. Holstein was equally as welcoming and thorough. I believe we have become so used to being a number and being rushed in and rushed out as patients that it really made me appreciate how different this experience was because I felt like I was being listened to and actually cared for.

Stomach pain interfered with most of my social life, exercise and eating habits. I thought about it 24/7 and it bothered me for the majority of my day. I couldn’t live like that anymore. Chiropractic care has had the biggest impact on my life to date. I wish I would of came to Dr. Katie years ago. I’m thankful I stumbled across her website on google. She is the most caring doctor I’ve ever been to, a great listener and she tries to help you. I’m forever thankful for her patience and expertise. Everything about the office is wonderful. Great staff and great doctor. It is an extremely friendly environment and it has helped me a lot. Best thing I could have ever done for myself!

Back Pain + Karaoke

My old karaoke group emailed me last week, asking what happened to me. I told them I was broke and also thought I have a broken back. Luckily, I was only broke! I told them that I can now breathe better. So I went out twice last week, sang 2 songs at each place. The crowd went wild. Well, maybe. So after 1.5 years, I can get out again.

Dr. Holstein is excellent. I have all the confidence that I will be on the road to recovery and be back to my life style in just a short time. and I love the fact that she holistic. I am thrilled to have found her.

Holistic Approach

Dr. Katie is a bright, diligent, and thoughtful chiropractor. Her unique, holistic approach to healing the human body rests upon the premise that the body has innate intelligence and it can, therefore, heal itself. Building upon this premise, Dr. Katie assesses her patients with the aid of technology prior to every adjustment. With data in hand regarding the needs of the patient for that particular day, Dr. Katie then goes about performing an adjustment that is tailored to the patient’s need at that particular moment in time.Show More

In my case, I was suffering from compression and subluxations on the lower lumbar area. I was amazed to find that that the color improved in my left leg, the circulation markedly increased, and my pain went away, after the first adjustments. In addition to my back, Dr. Katie has adjusted my knee and foot on that same side, as the result of her daily assessments of my needs.
If you are looking for a chiropractor who will perform targeted interventions and not generic adjustments, you need to definitely check Dr. Katie out! Her approach is effective and provides quick relief to those who are suffering from back problems. Finally, Dr. Katie is a pleasant and intelligent human being who has compassion for her patients.

Positive Change

Since seeing Dr. Holstein, I feel a positive change in energy and less aches. My ankle is also responding well – less pain and swelling.
~Paula C.


Dr Katie is fantastic! I had accepted my pain as a fact of life but one visit taught me that there was definitely a way to better health through chiropractic care. I was admittedly afraid of chiropractors, but Dr Katie has a warm personality, obvious enthusiasm and knowledge and is a true blessing in my life. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND Dr Katie and her Awesome Awesome staff!

Great Chiropractor

Dr. Katie is a great chiropractor! She has helped me turn my life around. I was in constant pain and she took the time and patience to find out what exactly was causing the pain. I would recommend her to everyone.

Believer In Chiropractic

I am so glad I was introduced to Dr. Katie. I have always been an avid believer in Chiropractic care for the entire family. It has helped me and my children in the past. However, other facilities I had attended in the past were very hard to get to due to very limited hours and never a clear financial layout. Dr. Katies approach is so helpful and organized, she makes the whole experience easy to understand and welcoming.

The initial x-rays and scans show you exactly what needs work and the constant scans show your improvement with each adjustment. My children and I love going to Riverside Chiropractic. Thanks Dr. Katie.
