When chiropractic physician Dr. Vincent Simokovich, DC, was 19 years old, he suffered a sports injury that would change his life forever. He was told he needed surgery on his lower back, but after watching both of his parents endure a lifetime of pain following their own back surgeries, Simokovich decided to forgo the invasive procedure. A relative introduced him to chiropractic care, which not only resolved his discomfort but also inspired a more-than-two-decade career helping others achieve similar relief. Simokovich is currently working on the completion of a diplomate in chiropractic neurology and metabolic function and directs Procare Wellness Center, where he and chiropractic physician Dr. Sam Galati, DC, take a multipronged approach to alleviating chronic health conditions.
Chiropractic physicians Simokovich and Galati—a former Air Force avionics specialist who is also currently pursuing further training in functional and metabolic medicine—maintain a multifaceted treatment philosophy that aims to unveil the underlying causes of illness. They combine neurological treatments such as spinal-decompression treatments, vibration therapy, olfactory stimulation, and adjustments to correct subluxation with lab testing designed to develop strategies based on a client’s metabolism. The duo also uses an innovative, laser-based technique to combat allergic responses commonly triggered by food, pet dander, or prolonged exposure to homework.

Given a choice between surgery and chiropractic adjustments after sustaining a work-related injury, Dr. Anthony Biondillo chose adjustments. Inspired by the treatments’ success, he turned his personal experience into a professional pursuit of chiropractic knowledge by spending six years studying the human body and achieving his doctorate. Now he treats patients' necks, backs, and limbs with the same noninvasive techniques that saved him from the operating room. He and his team specialize in alleviating pain by manipulating bones and soft tissue. These techniques—such as adjustment, muscle stimulation, and massage—are designed to trigger the body's self-healing mechanism, thereby avoiding pumping patients full of drugs.
