TCSO Seeks Additional Victims of Unlicensed Chiropractor

TCSO’s Sex Crimes Unit is asking people who were unlawfully treated or sexually abused by Stephen Berman, whose license to practice chiropractic medicine expired in September 2017, to contact them.

Detectives began investigating Berman after a woman came forward, saying he touched her inappropriately and made sexual comments toward her while getting an adjustment. After confronting him, Berman returned the money she paid for the visit.

The Sex Crimes Unit, working in conjunction with the Texas Board of Chiropractic Examiners, served a search warrant at a property Berman used as his office in the 1400-block of Miami Dr. on Monday, January 7.

Berman was arrested. He is currently charged with three counts of Practice Chiropractic Care Without a License, a Class A misdemeanor, and could face additional charges. Detectives ask people unlawfully treated by Berman, whether they experienced sexual advances and comments or not, to contact the tip line at (512) 854-1444.
