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.
