Meet Dr. Smaldone
Dr. Smaldone started his career in athletic training (AKA sports medicine) and worked healing injuries of college and future semi-pro athletes. Dr Smaldone graduated from the “Harvard” of chiropractic colleges (Palmer Chiropractic) after another of doctorate work and internship. He currently works on a number of projects with the head of the United States Chiropractic Neurology Board, Dr John Donofrio DABCN, DC.
Dr Smaldone has evolved into one of the top Athletic Chiropractors in NY State, treating pro athletes of football, tennis, running, weight lifters, and tri-athletes. Dr Smaldone’s approach with each of his patients is deeply routed in his sports medicine/athletic training backround. This is what makes him unique as a chiropractic doctor in New Paltz. He stretches, does myofascial release, ice/heats, often uses cold laser, and adjusts each patient if needed. In many cases, chiropractors only treat the bones and most physical therapists only work on the muscles. In both cases, during simple injury, this approach works out ok. However, often these therapies don’t work. “Why?” people ask? Because our bodies are all connected. Right? So, when a complex injury occurs, the bones and muscles must be treated at the same time in order to get proper healing.
Plain and simple, Dr Smaldone loves what he does and puts every bit of that into his patients every day in New Paltz, NY.
I have been to a number of chiropractors over the years and I have to say that Dr. Smaldone is the best one I have seen. Due to my poor posture while working on the computer all day, along with the arches in my feet not being up to par, my lower back goes out from time to time and is very painful. Not only does Dr. Smaldone make that pain go away, but by going on a maintenance schedule basis, that very rarely happens anymore. I would highly recommend him to anyone who suffers any type of back or neck pain (and have on a number of occasions). Also, if you are considering any type of surgical procedure, I would strongly recommend seeing him first.
