Amidst stories of faltering markets and gloomy economic forecasts, one Greene County business is celebrating simultaneous milestones of success. Throughout the month of September, Beavercreek Chiropractic Clinic, located at 1654 Mardon Drive, celebrates 28 years of continuous patient care.
Beavercreek Chiropractic Clinic was opened in August of 1983 by Dr. Greg Palkowski, the facility director. “My staff and I are very proud to be part of the Beavercreek community,” he says. “It’s hard to believe that nearly three decades have gone by and we appreciate everyone who has supported our practice over the years.”
Alongside the success of his practice, Palkowski is celebrating 30 years as a chiropractor. He graduated in 1981, Magna Cum Laude, from the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa after completing his undergraduate studies at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York.
Palkowski works hard to help maintain the integrity of his profession through his involvement with professional trade organizations governing chiropractic in Ohio. Often serving in advanced leadership positions, he has sat on the boards of directors of the Miami Valley Chiropractic Society and the Ohio State Chiropractic Association.
From 1992 through 1995, he served as Ohio State Chiropractic Association delegate to the National Chiropractic Centennial Committee. In 1998, Palkowski was named the Ohio Chiropractor of the Year and in 2010 accepted an appointment by former Governor Ted Strickland to the Ohio State Chiropractic Board.
“My goal has always been to create an environment of healing and education for our patients aside from the current medical model of drugs and surgery,” says Palkowski. In addition to complete physical care, the clinic staff does everything possible to make patients feel at ease during their visit.
According to Palkowski there are many mistaken ideas about chiropractic treatment, especially regarding the “doctor” title. “One of the greatest misconceptions is that a chiropractor is not a real doctor,” he explains. “A chiropractor earns a doctorate degree in chiropractic, much like a dentist or lawyer get doctorates in their field.”
“Chiropractic physicians are highly specialized in the treatment of injuries and disorders related to the musculoskeletal system,” Palkowski says. “Many people associate the chiropractor with back injuries, but a Doctor of Chiropractic also treats muscle strain, injuries of the extremities as well as arthritis and sinus and allergy and other visceral conditions.”
As a special thank you for nearly 30 years of patronage, from September 15th through October 15th new referrals from current patients can take advantage of a complete evaluation at the discounted rate of $30.
