The digestive, cardiovascular, and renal systems can achieve better function, lowering the likelihood of heart attacks and stroke. Listed below are some of the conditions regularly treated by Dr. Wanczyk with OMT.

Some symptoms of neurological disorders including Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease can be reduced with Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment as well.
  • Treatment Techniques – Dr. Wanczyk’s treatment techniques target specific areas of the musculoskeletal system chosen by a complete evaluation of posture and symptoms. Osteopathic techniques used include, but is not limited to: Myofascial Release, counterstrain techniques, Cranial Osteopathy and Biodynamic Osteopathy. One unique treatment is using the Fulford Percussor, which vibrates the fascia, releasing tensions and stiffness.

Nutrition Response Testing (NRT)

Building on her masters in food science and nutrition she helps the patients achieve good health through dietary changes and supplements. One method she uses is based on Dr Ulan’s system of nutritional response testing. This method measures your reflexive response to triggers from your diet and environment that are causing your body stress, as well as what supplements and dietary changes will help heal the body. It is a simple and effective way to guide you through the myriad of supplements that are out there, so you can take only the ones your body needs right now.

P.N.

I brought my son in when he was 1 day old because he would only turn his head to one direction. This is most likely due to the long labor or perhaps positioning in the womb. After one manipulative treatment it was resolved!
