Dr. Palombo is owner of Active Life and a second generation Chiropractor. He firmly believes in the powerful role that education plays in health care and the maintenance of good health.
A healthy lifestyle balances eating right, staying active, striving to improve and maintain emotional health, and sustaining normal muscle and joint health. Genetics aside, a lapse in one of these three areas can negatively impact any others and predispose you to poor health.
Most patients I see are looking to get out of pain so, realistically, this is step one. Step two revolves around identifying and corrective why your symptoms were'n't resolving on their own -- termed "perpetuating factors." Ideally, you'll complete treatment with instruction on specific exercises to reinforce your treatment at home and continue to maintain your gains.
Dr Palombo is trained in joint adjusting (both for the spine and extremities), manual soft tissue therapies (such as trigger point, myofascial release), and therapeutic/stabilization exercises, all of which he utilizes at various points throughout his care plans in order to best serve you as a patient. He is also certified in an instrument-assisted soft tissue technique called Graston Technique (www.grastontechnique.com).
Dr. Palombo earned his undergraduate education at Skidmore College, where he studied exercise physiology and clinical nutrition. He earned his graduate degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College and a post-doctoral specialization in sports from the International Association of Sports Chiropractors. He has taught postgraduate continuing education for other doctors nationally and, has been on post-graduate faculty at New York College of Chiropractic.
Dr. Palombo is a strong proponent for local food and community volunteerism in addition to public health education.
