Meet Our Harrisburg Chiropractor: Dr. Albert Skocik

  • Dr.
    Albert Skocik

    Our Harrisburg chiropractor, Dr. Albert Skocik, has been helping patients from Harrisburg and the surrounding communities enjoy reduced pain and improved health for over 23 years. Dr. Skocik started providing chiropractic care in private practice in May 1989 and has treated over 16,000 patients since then from Harrisburg, Hershey, Progress, Colonial Park, Lower Paxton, and Grantville, PA. Patients frequently see Dr. Skocik initially for relief from back pain or neck pain associated with an auto accident or a workers compensation case, but many continue with care afterwards because of his focus on healthy living.

    After completing his pre-chiropractic studies at Penn State University, Dr. Skocik obtained his Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he learned many healing chiropractic techniques such as spinal adjustments and manipulation, spinal decompression, and traction. To offer patients the widest variety of healing services he also completed many hours of post-graduate studies and advanced training in extremity adjusting, lumbar distraction, treatment of cervical injuries, applied kinesiology, and chiropractic rehabilitation. What this means to you as a patient is that our Harrisburg chiropractor has the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to accurately diagnose your pain and develop an individualized treatment program to help you recover.

    Chiropractic Services for Pain Management
    and Healthy Living

    Harrisburg chiropractor treats auto accident and workers comp injuries

    When patients come to Dr. Skocik with back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, whiplash or other injuries associated with an auto accident or workers compensation case, he conducts a thorough examination using functional computerized testing to pinpoint the cause of pain. He may utilize EMG (electromyography) testing to evaluate the electrical activity of your skeletal muscles, or he may perform JTECH testing to measure your range of motion, grip strength, and muscle strength.

    In some cases, a spinal misalignment or herniated disc may be causing pressure on nerves which could radiate pain to other parts of the body. That's why it's important to spend the time first locating the source of pain. Dr. Skocik then recommends the exact combination of services that he believes will get you back to full functioning as soon as possible. This may include chiropractic care, spinal decompression, physiotherapy or massage therapy. Our newest addition, chiropractic aqua beds, can combine the chiropractic healing therapies of heat, water, and massage to increase circulation and advance the healing process.

    Harrisburg Chiropractor Advocates Preventative Care

    Dr. Skocik believes it's just as important to prevent pain and injuries as it is to treat them. Many patients visit us for chiropractic therapies to help in preventative and wellness care. We believe that maintaining spinal alignment and core strength is crucial to a healthy lifestyle. What you put inside your body is another important part of overall wellness, and we are certified in Metagenics, the scientifically engineered nutritional supplements.

    If you've been injured in an automobile accident, a work-related injury, a sports injury, or if you just want to feel better every day, visit our Harrisburg chiropractor and let Dr. Skocik get you on the wellness path.
