“At 15 years old I thought I was going to have to give up my running career due to severe lower back pain. My grandmother knew differently….”
I first became interested in chiropractic after being helped as a 15 year old with severe lower back pain. Running high mileage, growing up on a horse farm and working with my dad doing excavation work was the down fall for my back. My grandmother, who was under regular chiropractic care, thought it would be a good idea to bring me to the chiropractor.
After being helped by chiropractic as a youngster I decided then that I wanted to help others through chiropractic care as well.
Upon graduation from Averill Park High School I attended SUNY Oneonta where I majored in biology and minored in chemistry in order to prepare myself for chiropractic college. I began my chiropractic college studies in the fall of 1990, and received specialized training in chiropractic pediatrics and geriatric care. After 3 1/2 years of intensive studies, I graduated Magna Cum Laude from New York Chiropractic College.
Upon my return to the Capital District I decided to go into private practice and opened East Greenbush Chiropractic in January of 1994. After serving the Capital District with quality chiropractic care for 14 years, I was fortunate to be able to make my dreams become a reality and opened the East Greenbush Chiropractic Wellness Center in October of 2007.
Throughout my many years in private practice I have continued to educate myself in many different health areas and techniques by attending numerous seminars. I have gained advanced training in pediatrics and family care along with nutrition, rehabilitative care, Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP), and orthotic management through Foot Levelers. I hold a Certification in Pediatrics from the Academy Council of Chiropractic Pediatrics (CACCP) as well as a certification as a Certified Chiropractic Wellness Practioner (CCWP). In addition to these certifications, I am certified in Graston Technique (www.grastontechnique.com), Webster Technique and the Impulse Adjusting System.
I am currently a member of the International Chiropractic Association Council on Wellness, International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, New York Chiropractic Council and am a past president of the New York Chiropractic Council District 6.
On a Personal Note..
I live in Averill Park with my lovely wife Michaelene and our two handsome sons Deaglan and Eamonn. You will often see Michaelene in the office helping out or bringing Deaglan and Eamonn into the office for their weekly chiropractic adjustment. I enjoy maintaining a healthy lifestyle while working on my lawns, gardening, fishing, running, weight lifting and traveling.
