The Doctor

Dr. Thomas Walaszczyk's knowledge and experience restoring health without drugs or surgery spans 31 years.  Dr. Walaszczyk approaches health holistically and uses therapeutic modalities including electric stimulation, ultrasound, spinal traction, exercise and nutritional protocols to deliver a comprehensive treatment plan to provide patients with the materials necessary to achieve their optimal health.  

Dr. Walaszczyk's chief question when analysing a patient is to ask " What is preventing this patient healing, from naturally recovering?" Using varoius Chiropractic techniques, interference to normal healing processes is reduced.  Patient's need to understand and participate in their own healing process.  Stress, whether it be caused by physical injury, emotional upset, mental overloads or chemical toxicity affects the nervous system resulting in poor adaptation.  The body - mind becomes stuck in the defense mode and symptoms become evident.  When our well being is compromised, innate intelligence defends the body through alterations in behavior, contracted states starting in the brain and carried through the nerves affecting all the organs and cells of the body.  This happens with mental and emotional stress as well.  Over time, stress patterns dominant how our brain and nervous system functions.  Blood pressure is affected, hormonal imbalances occur, sleep is less effective, and an overall lack of vitality occurs.  Patients who take medication may have their outward symptoms reduced, but the underlying neurological behavior is unchanged and vitality is not restored.   Chiropractic science examines this behavior and the Chiropractic Art how to correct it.  The Science, Art and Philosophy of Chiropractic was born in 1895 by D.D. Palmer in Davenport, Iowa, however the history of humanity's search to understand these processes started thousands of years prior.  The tool that provided Chiropractic to discover the answer to this inner cause of dis-ease was the X-Ray machine.  Having the ability to see and measure misalignment of vertebrae provided the information on how to correct it.  In the early 1920's, there were over 300 Chiropractic colleges and hospitals in this country.  The advent of chemotherapy and its promise to easily reduce symptoms and pain quickly replaced the Chiropractic method.  Chiropractic continues to provide patient's with a means to achieve health from within without drugs or surgery.

In my office, X-ray is used to evaluate the specific spinal and pelvic misalignments as to deliver better results for my patients.  From the X-ray study, the proper course of treatment is then determined.  Determining the alignment is one critical aspect of determining long term correction of musculoskeletal complaints and is vital to restoring balance and adaptation to the nerve system.  The skeleton is the foundation for the nerve system.  When the foundation is distorted, the nerve system, muscles, discs, joints and you are less than optimum.  To be all you can be you must have a nerve system free from interference. 

Dr. Walaszczyk is a graduate of the New York Chiropractic College, 1989, graduating with honors and membership to the Phi Chi Omega Scholastic Honors Society.  Dr Walaszczyk practices full spine adjusting based on X-Ray analysis and extremity adjusting based on kinesiology.
