Local doctor publishes Parkinson’s study - The Summerville Journal Scene


Dr. Tron Malachowski

Dr. Tron Malachowski, the clinical director of Lowcountry Specific Chiropractic has recently published a research paper on Parkinson’s disease, on the clinical management of the case utilizing Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic protocol.

“It’s really exciting to see how patients progress over time,” Dr. Malachowski states. “We have had the honor of watching patients ambulate easier, stand taller and shake less since beginning Specific Chiropractic care. This research paper touches on the management of the case, and key neurological markers changing from positive to negative including: short term memory recall, orientation, rhomberg’s and heel to toe walk.”

“All of our cases respond differently. Neurodegenerative conditions are devastating for families and all involved. It is our intention to look deep into the case, searching for potential causative factors including severe physical traumas and chemical insults. Some of my colleagues have researched the physical trauma aspect and after investigating further, I am beginning to lean that way as well,” Dr. Malachowski says.

Parkinson’s disease affects approximately one million people nationally, second to Alzheimers as the most prevalent neurodegenerative condition. Those afflicted with Parkinson’s disease often suffer from: tremors, trouble walking, cognition problems, getting from a seated to standing position and trouble with many other activities of daily living. It has been theorized that genetics, environmental factors and even head trauma may play a role in the disease. Scientists have found that dopamine secreting cells have been dramatically lowered in the disease, thus creating a less then satisfactory motor output.

Dr. Malachowski is currently working on another research paper that will outline three different Parkinson’s cases with three completely different backgrounds. The Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) was used as a quantitative analysis in all of the cases.

“I am certainly not going to reveal to you the results quite yet, but I will share the results have been quite promising”, says Dr. Malachowski.

Giving back to the community is a way one local chiropractor wants to express gratitude. Lowcountry Specific Chiropractic celebrates more than 150 patients and the community with an Annual Appreciation Day on Tuesday, May 14, 2013.

Dr. Tron Malachowsk, Director of Lowcountry Specific Chiropractic says,  "It is our way of saying thank you for teaching us as much as we teach you.”

Lowcountry Specific Chiropractic takes pride in being able to provide answers to peoples’ health concerns. Dr. Malachowski has been providing quality Specific Chiropractic care in the Summerville area for 5 years. The Annual Appreciation Day is a way to say thank you to the community in which he serves.

“We have been blessed with a tremendous gift. We want to let our community and especially our patients know we care about them. We appreciate them being a part of something special here which is why every year, Lowcountry Specific Chiropractic offers complimentary services to all existing patients and patients who might not have visited in a while," says Dr. Malachowski.

 In addition to all care rendered for Annual Appreciation Day complimentary, prizes will be awarded, food and beverages will be served and chair massages will be conducted all day long as one big celebration.

 Dr. Malachowski has been giving back to the community since he moved here in 2008. Late in 2008, he saw a need to provide quality cutting edge education to churches and business that needed help in providing their members and employees information on health, life and fitness. In seeing that need, his signature course liveWELL was born. To date, that class has seen over 2,000 lbs of weight loss in organizations all across the state.

“Equipping people is in my DNA. I have been blessed with life saving information, which not enough people out there are teaching. That’s why it’s imperative we hit the streets letting people know there are better ways to live, you just need to learn the information to incorporate it,” says Dr. Malachowski
