Meet Dr. Tokarz, Chiropractor
Growing up, I never considered becoming a healthcare provider. Finance was my chosen career. During that time, I actively participated in the new and growing sport of triathlon. But with training came injury. Various treatment regimens over the next year and a half only resulted in frustration. Constant pain was my new way of life. Eventually, relief came from ‘non-traditional therapies’: specific muscle work and traditional chiropractic. As a patient, I learned that the site of pain is not the source of pain!

Renewed, I wondered how many others had suffered needlessly as I had. I knew that I could help others. I had found my calling. Shortly thereafter, I attended the National College of Chiropractic (now the National University of Health Sciences), graduating in 1993 with a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) degree.
But my education didn’t stop there. Everything evolves, everything changes. What you learn in school is not the last word it’s just the latest word. With this belief and the desire to get to the ‘root’ of the problem, I am compelled to investigate and attend various seminars. Some were helpful, but some were definitely life-changing! I am proud to have had the opportunity to study ground breaking concepts in movement dysfunction and rehabilitation with Dr.’s Vladimir Janda and Karel Lewitt at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic. In addition, I have attended various seminars throughout the country related to soft tissue (both deep and Trigger Point), ‘primal’ reflexes, cranial manipulation as well as Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT).

As time passes, new concepts in manual therapy will emerge or evolve. I will always attempt to seek out, evaluate and utilize those therapies that are effective and return both long lasting and fast results.
