Meet Dr. Van Nostrand, DC

Spinal Health & Rehab of Punta Gorda

About Dr. Kevin Van Nostrand

Dr. Kevin Van Nostrand is blessed to be the proud husband to his wife and a father to two amazing children.

He graduated from Port Charlotte High School in 1992. This long-time Charlotte County resident has earned his Doctorate in Chiropractic, a Bachelor's degree in the Science of Nutrition, and is Board Certified in Physical Therapy. Dr. Van Nostrand has also completed over 800 hours in Functional Nutrition. He is a Certified practitioner for RGCC (Research Genetic Cancer Center) and is currently working on completing his Diplomate in the American Board of Chiropractic Internists.

In 1997, Dr. Van Nostrand left a very successful practice in Oakton, Virginia, to move overseas to practice Chiropractic in the Netherlands "Holland." There he became one of the first American Chiropractors to work in Holland's world-famous social health care system. Working closely with some of Holland's best Orthopedic, Neurological, Chiropractic, and Physical Therapy specialists, Dr. Van Nostrand experienced a different and more effective approach to treating neuro-muscular skeletal disorders (muscle-related pain).

For 27 years, Dr. Van Nostrand has had a very well-rounded approach to health. He has helped thousands of patients avoid spinal surgery by combining non-invasive Chiropractic treatment, Spinal Decompression, Physical Therapy, and medical injections when cases prove difficult. Dr. Van Nostrand is able to provide Southwest Florida with these services all under one roof at Spinal Health and Rehab!

When not in the office, Dr. Van Nostrand can be found with his family camping in the woods, coaching premier youth competitive soccer, or running marathons. The Van Nostrand family loves to share their faith in God and serve in their community.

Horse & Hound Animal Adjusting

Dr. Van Nostrand and his wife Courtney are proud owners of three Dutch Wirehair Pointing Griffons, a German Sheppard, a Hungarian Viszla and a Jack Russell. Additionally the couple enjoys their gated horses, a Paso Fino and Tennessee Walker, along with their multiple pet cows.   

So in 2010 it was only a natural transition for Dr. Van Nostrand to return back to school for his Certification in Animal Chiropractic through The American Veterinary Chiropractic Association (AVCA). He received his Post-doctorate education in Animal Chiropractic from Parker Chiropractic College in Dallas, TX. He maintains his active certification and continues to attend continuing education courses. 

In 2011 Dr. Van Nostrand and his wife opened Horse & Hound Animal Adjusting. A practice dedicated to improving health and enhancing the performance of equine and companion animals. Dr. Van Nostrand focuses on the neuromusculoskeletal system and sensorimotor integration as a foundation for his therapeutic care. He has a special interest in proprioceptive and cerebellar funcation and its involvement in proper biomechanics of the quadruped in athletic performance and injury prevention. Working closely with local Veterinarians, Farriers, Animal Massage Therapists, and other specialists, Dr. Van Nostrand has experience treating all breed and sizes from Teacup Chihuahuas to draught horses.
