Dr. Nathanael Klein
Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Nathanael Klein graduated in 2013 as a Doctor of Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, Georgia. He worked at a light-force Chiropractic practice in North-Eastern Pennsylvania for four and a half years. A year after working as a Chiropractor, his past injuries began to manifest into chronic problems that were limiting his ability to work.  He began studying structural biomechanics and spinal strengthening. By applying what he learned to heal and strengthen his own body, he was able to continue practicing chiropractic. He now runs a YouTube channel, Greater Exodus Vitality Restoration, making instructional videos on why spinal stabilization is important for the health of the whole body and teaching others how to get out of pain the way he did. He has spoken at colleges and done workshops on how to help reduce chronic joint pain by creating good functional daily habits. Dr. Klein believes continued chiropractic care and teaching people how to move correctly can not only reduce joint injury, but reduce stress on the nerves and spinal cord and possibly prevent future stress related pathologies.
