Dr. Stuart J.
Dr. Surkosky is a 1993 graduate of the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He graduated Magna Cum Laude and his academic achievements include Dean's List, President's List, and induction into Pi Tau Delta Honor Society. He did his undergraduate studies at Indiana University of Pennsylvania where he earned credits for his Bachelor of Biological Science degree. In addition to his doctorate, Dr. Surkosky has received the Erhardt X-ray Proficiency certification and is a Certified Sports Physician. He utilizes the Palmer Package method of adjusting and specializes in spinal biomechanics, the latter of which he taught at Palmer College.
Dr. Surkosky resides in Meridian, Pennsylvania along with his wife Dawn, a Certified Chiropractic Technologist. They have three sons, Joshua, Jacob and Jordon.
Care Chiropractic Center utilizes the state-of-the-art technology "Subluxation Station", which allows Dr. Surkosky to objectively detect areas of nerve disturbance which are not visible on x-rays. The data is also used to monitor patient progress and determine how to deliver the appropriate chiropractic care.
Because abnormal spinal function and/or position can cause nervous system disturbance, the two standard tests used are:
SEMG - measuring the amount of electrical current in the muscles, and
Thermography - measuring skin temperature along the spine.
With the help of this technology, Dr. Surkosky can provide a custom treatment program to meet your specific health needs.
