"One of the greatest rewards of serving in Charleston, is the privilege of working with the elite athletes at Eastern Illinois University. (Pictured from left to right: Dr. Todd Garner, DO, Dr. Charlie Schuster, DC, Jimmy Garoppolo, New England Patriots) Surrounding myself with these quality individuals, and the exceptional sports medicine staff, has always helped me grow both clinically and as a person.  When people ask me what I'm most dedicated to, my reply is easy...  Faith, Family, and Chiropractic.  When it comes to chiropractic, I'm most proud of being the team chiropractor for "Tony Romo's old school".  The truth is that there are many Tony Romo's who might not get their chance to succeed if injury sidelines them.  When treating elite athletes, its not enough to treat the injuries.  We have to prevent them.  These same principals are what drive our private practice as well.  Enough about us!  Let us know how we can help you achieve your health goals.  Live Long Live Well!"

Today, my mission is quite clear: "Live Long. Live Well".

  • Dr.
    Charles Schuster

    I want everyone to experience the renewed youth that Chiropractic Care can offer. One of my favorite quotes regarding health refers to the fact that some people seek miracles for their health which would defy the laws of nature and yet they take for granted the fact that their bodies automatically obey the laws in the first place. This is the greatest miracle in all of health care.

    I believe that you and your family were created to have the most and best of life. I am here to facilitate those who want to take that opportunity. Applying Chiropractic adjustments to the various joints of the spine and extremities results in specific and powerful effects on the nervous system. Those that have tried it, know exactly what I am talking about.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
