Dr. Mat Pastore grew up in Ocean County, New Jersey, where he went to the same high school as his wife, Mary Anne. They have been married almost 30 years and live in Chester with their 2 sons, Collin and Eric.
Prior to beginning his chiropractic studies, Dr. Mat spent 3 years as a cadet in the United States Merchant Marine, at Fort Schuyler, in New York. He then attended the oldest Chiropractic college in the world, Palmer College of Chiropractic, in Davenport, Iowa and graduated Summa Cum Laude in 1991. He practiced for 2 years in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and then moved to Chester, Virginia in 1993 to found Breckenridge Chiropractic. Dr. Mat has completed a one year post-graduate certification program in Sports Chiropractic, earning his C.C.S.P. - Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, and is currently studying to earn his C.C.W.P. certification - Certified Chiropractic Wellness Practitioner.
Dr. Mat’s interest in wellness began many years ago. He began reading about health and nutrition as far back as high school and made early changes in his own lifestyle to stay healthy. After many years of treating patients with chiropractic care, he found that he was treating more and more people who were suffering from inflammation. He saw many who were highly medicated (most often with cholesterol, blood sugar, anti-inflammatories and blood pressure medications) and as he began to research this phenomenon, he realized Americans were getting sicker each year due to diet related illnesses.
In 2011 he began offering the Ideal Weight Loss Program at Breckenridge Chiropractic as one of the tools to help his patients begin on a rewarding journey to wellness.
