Gandolfi Chiropractic Center
A NATURAL APPROACH TO WELLNESS
Welcome to Gandolfi Chiropractic Center. I have been in the industry for over 30 years, and I hope you find my chiropractic story helpful when considering chiropractic care and my office.
I was 17 years old and inured my neck in a high school football game. After numerous medical doctors, three hospitals, and lot of promises, the medical approach offered no help. My mom decided to take me to Norbert Christenson, a chiropractor in Oglesby, IL. I went to this office very skeptical. I had never been to a chiropractor before. Dr. Christenson was also an athlete, in fact, he injured his neck playing baseball. But in his case, his neck injuries left him paralyzed from his neck down. He has been paralyzed for years until he saw a chiropractor. He experienced a chiropractic miracle and walked again for the first time in years thanks to chiropractic.
His chiropractic experience inspired him to dedicate his life to chiropractic. This was my guy. I was back playing football again in just a few weeks. I was now a chiropractic believer and it led me to becoming a chiropractor much like Dr. Christenson.
I went to Palmer College of Chiropractic and graduated with honors in 1983. I graduated with a purpose and a passion to help others through chiropractic just as I had been helped. I moved to Charleston in 1984 and opened the Gandolfi Chiropractic Center. I saw a tremendous need in Charleston. There were so many people to help; our community was very unhealthy and in need of a chiropractor who could not only help people with bad backs, but also help those who were sick get well.
1984 was an eye opener for a new doctor. I saw lots of bad backs, but I also had the opportunity to help people reduce high blood pressure, kids with asthma, and even helped a patient regain his eye sight through chiropractic care. In 1994 I developed the NeuroSpinal Rehabituation Chiropractic method. This is a scientifically based neurospinal approach designed to optimize the health of the spine and the nervous system. This amazing methodology allows me to fix the real underlying problem and not just treat the pain. In 1996 I opened the chiroAcademy and began training other chiropractors. I have had the wonderful opportunity to teach and train over 3,000 doctors of chiropractic from 20 different countries!
Now here I am years later, having helped over 9,000 patients and ready to help you. I have operated a family-oriented wellness practice where I specialize in returning people to health by optimizing their neurospinal. Gandolfi Chiropractic is filled with people in various stages of health. We have sick people on the road to getting well, we have healthy people that utilize chiropractic as a means of keeping their body functioning optimally. There are young families, athletes, and everything in-between. My passion is that I can be the doctor to lead you on your journey to health and well-being!
