Severe back pain / Recommended surgery

Over the last 3 months, the pain has slowly but surely gone away. I no longer have the pain in my back. I have been able to start working out again. I no longer have the pain going down my leg, my foot is no longer numb, I have lost weight and my fitness scores are going up. I have seen a tremendous difference. I am now able to be active again with my family. My career is no longer in jeopardy and I owe that to Dr. Tron Malachowski.

I can now sleep through the night without waking up in tears

I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis at the age of 28. PA has been very aggressive on my joints and destroyed my skin. PA is known as the “Heartbreak” disease, which has lived up to its name for the past 10 years. I have had many interrupted nights that left me sleeping sitting up.

Local doctor publishes second Parkinson’s study – The Summerville Journal Scene

logo sjcDr. Tron Malachowski began researching Parkinson’s disease four years ago when he became discouraged by the lack of professional studies in his own profession.

According to a release from his office, he has produced two studies on the subject.

Malachowski calls his latest study the most profound; this particular study utilized the gold standard for grading Parkinson’s disease, the Unified Parkinson’s Disease rating scale (UPDRS). The UPDRS is mainly used by neurologists to classify how severe Parkinson’s patients are presenting.

Malachowski said that his study, which is documented in the Journal of Upper Cervical Subluxation, showed a much higher percent change in symptomatic presentation of being under care from three months to 36 months compared to a much lower change in symptomatic presentation following conventional drug therapy and comparing UPDRS scores.

The UPDRS in particular asks various questions ranging from intensity of tremors to swallowing difficulty to issues with depression.

The study goes on to detail how the cases were cared for and the results of the UPDRS scale.

“For us it’s about increasing the quality of peoples’ lives,” Malachowski said.

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

Seizure, Ataxia, Fatigue, Strabismus and Migraine Resolved by Precise Realignment of the First Cervical Vertebra

Objective: To analyze a case which appears to support chiropractic success in treating neurovascular symptoms through adjustment of the first cervical vertebrae.

Clinical Features: The patient was a 75 year old female presenting with gait ataxia, strabismus, fatigue, blood pressure fluctuations, seizures of two weeks duration, and history of concussion with similar symptoms. Previous medical diagnosis and care had been unrewarding.

Intervention and Outcomes: The patient presented to an Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic clinic where she was examined and her atlas vertebra adjusted per the SCALE method. The patient’s symptoms were quickly and painlessly reduced and/or resolved.

Conclusion: Results suggest that Atlas Orthogonal care may be responsible for the reduction and elimination of neurological symptoms in this patient. Removal of intracranial insufficiency due to chronic compression of the vertebral artery by misalignment of the first cervical vertebra is a possible explanation for the mechanism of management success. These results suggest that chiropractic care, specifically adjustment of the atlas vertebrae, may be a useful treatment for conditions with neurovascular symptomatology.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care of a Patient with Post Concussion Syndrome, Positional Vertigo and Headaches

Objective: To outline clinical changes after chiropractic care in a patient with vertigo, headaches and post concussion syndrome.

Clinical Features: A 23-year-old female presented for chiropractic care five months after a slip and fall that resulted in a concussion. The patient presented with symptoms of vertigo and headaches consistent with post concussion syndrome. The patient had a longstanding history of headaches that were exacerbated by the concussion and a new complaint of positional vertigo that occurred immediately following the trauma. Radiographs ruled out fracture but were remarkable for upper cervical subluxation.

Intervention and Outcomes: The patient received upper cervical specific chiropractic care through the technique of Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic. Atlas Orthogonal protocol of upper cervical palpatory scanning and supine leg length analysis were used to indicate when an upper cervical adjustment was to be administered. Radiographic analysis was used to determine the misalignment and the exact vectors of the upper cervical adjustment.

Conclusions: Clinical findings suggest that upper cervical vectored manipulation was beneficial in this patient with vertigo, headaches and post concussion syndrome.
