Dr. Joshua Chrystal focuses on natural physical medicine and rehabilitation as well as sports medicine. He has a passion for preventative medicine and cares for patients of all ages. Dr.Chrystal uses the latest research and tools to help direct his patients to greater health, mobility and wellness. A major portion of Dr. Chrystal's practice focuses on minimally invasive musculo-skeletal interventions utilizing the latest methods in Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma, Trigger Point Therapy, Osteopathic and Naturopathic Physical Medicine.
Dr. Chrystal feels the key to success with these and all therapies, is to optimize patient comfort and tailor the treatments to the individual. Dr. Chrystal, unlike most practitioners of Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and other Regenerative Injections Therapies (RIT), was trained as a Chiropractor before continuing on to Naturopathic Medical School. Dr. Chrystal worked for years as a personal trainer before, during and after his undergraduate education. He earned, graduating with honors, a B.S. in Kinesiology with an emphasis in exercise physiology from Arizona State University. A seeming natural fit, he then attended and graduated with honors from Southern California University of Health Sciences, earning his first doctoral degree and the title of Doctor of Chiropractic. Wanting to incorporate more specialized therapies such as Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for his patients, Dr. Chrystal decided to further his education by then going to Naturopathic medical school in Arizona. He graduated with high marks from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, earning his second doctoral degree and the title of Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine.
This diverse training and experience allows him to bring to his patients an integrated and unique combination of kinematics, bio-mechanics and rehabilitation.
