Expert Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and Massage Services in Kihei, HI

South Maui Sports Chiropractic is a sports injury chiropractic firm that was opened by Dr. Michael Pierner. Serving all of Kihei, HI, we strive to provide our clients with lasting relief from any pain they’re experiencing and to work with them through recovery from any injury. 

In 1976, Dr. Pierner graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. He has been practicing chiropractic medicine ever since, giving him 41 years of experience treating patients. After visiting a friend in Maui in 1979, Dr. Pierner decided to move his California practice to Maui. He held offices in Lahaina, Wailuku, Pukalani, Kahului, and Wailea before settling in Kihei. 

Our patients can expect 30-40 minutes of face-time with Dr. Pierner for typical appointments. After performing thorough diagnostic tests, including a discussion about your experience of your particular issue, we will use force and non-force techniques depending on preference, diagnosis, and symptoms. 

We specialize in a number of different chiropractic methods, making us diversely suited to treat many different chiropractic problems, including sports injuries and the kind of musculosketal injuries and pain commonly found in veterans. To restore mobility to a specific vertebra or joint, we use the Activator Method, which involves a small, handheld instrument that delivers a gentle impulse force to the spine. Familiarity with Gonstead Analysis gives us the ability to recognize and correct often overlooked misalignments in the lower parts of the spine. The focus is to be as accurate and specific as possible, exclusively addressing the problem areas. With the Pettibon Rehabilitation System, patients take active part in their rehabilitation. While waiting for their doctor, they stretch and warm-up their muscles; the goal is to strengthen postural muscles and build endurance both in and out of the office.

"I've seen Dr. Pierner three times now after battling lower back pain off and on over the years. He diagnosed the issues the first visit."

"I'll keep coming back to this guy for the next few weeks or months because I trust him & it's working!" 

~Jeff M.   
"But, more importantly, he gave me insight on what to avoid. My back is really getting now thanks to what I've learned from him. I think the adjustments have helped too. "  

"Dr. Pierner is the best chiropractor I have EVER been to, and he is the only one I go to now. I have tried many over the years and he is the one who has helped me the most. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and he is a really good person and fun to talk with during the appointment. He doesn't push you into a series of pricey appointments, he only does what is needed to help you most." 
~Gail S.  
"Their prices are reasonable and it definitely isn't some high pressure office where they try to sell you stuff you don't need (or want)." 

"Best chiropractor on Maui. I've been coming here for years. Better than my chiropractor on the mainland."
~Kathy O.
