As Doctor of Chiropractic Peter Szakacs trained in pre-med University of Pennsylvania, he couldn't help but think of something his high-school chiropractor told him. The chiropractor—who had treated Szakacs after a football-related back injury and helped both of his parents avoid surgery—expressed how rewarding the chiropractic calling was. He suggested that Szakacs follow in his footsteps, as Szakacs told ACOMHealth.
Now, Dr. Pete—as his patients call him—is the chiropractor and clinical director at Quantum Vitality Centres, treating symptoms such as back pain and sciatica with chiropractic adjustments. But his services go beyond the chiropractic: He is passionate about anti-aging medicine and fall prevention and uses advanced technology to help patients live longer, healthier lives. He also employs innovative physical therapies such as spinal decompression and shortwave-diathermy sessions, in which a device generates an electromagnetic field that is designed to halt back pain, bursitis, or computer-related strain.
Dr. Pete has also completed extensive post-graduate training in acupuncture, nutrition, and rehabilitation and guides his patients toward achieving their weight-loss goals.
