Meet The Chiropractor

Dr. Kelly Chwojdak is a 1997 graduate of New York Chiropractic College.  Her additional certification in Koren Specific Technique (KST), a safe and gentle  non-manual technique, has her serving local patients as well as those that travel out of state.

When Dr. Chwojdak is not seeing patients, she expands her knowledge on ways to bring more to her patients via attending conferences and webinars in chiropractic, nutritional therapy, and holistic health care. In addition, she maintains all NYS Board requirements in Ethics, Documentation and Patient Communications.

Chiropractic care improves the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives. When you are gently adjusted at Safe Harbor Chiropractic, PC,  Dr. Chwojdak spends quality time educating you on proper sleep positions, correct size pillow, proper work ergonomics, proper footwear and nutrition. These are some of the more common and simple corrections that will enhance your healing abilities. When stress is removed from your life, whether it be physical, chemical or emotional, your body will love you and heal faster!

Dr. Chwojdak takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column. Dr. Chwojdak will determine the root of the problem and create a personalized chiropractic wellness plan to suit your needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives. 

In her own words, "I woke up one summer morning in the summer of 1986 when I heard very clearly, 'you're going to be a chiropractor'. I did not question it. I went to the library that morning and tried to find information on this profession I was about to have a tremendous amount of passion for. Sadly, the library had one 4 page pamphlet. Back then, the brochure listed the intense training for the program and once graduated, expect to work at least 60 hours a week and get paid very little. I didn't care, this was what I was here for.

While attending NYCC, I became more intrigued about nutrition. I changed my diet drastically and began an intense body building program. Six weeks before competition, I experienced a horrific unrelenting migraine, right shoulder pain, nausea and constipation. Still attending classes, getting adjusted by many chiropractors, this unbearable discomfort was not letting up. I sought out another chiropractor on campus who did something very different. She muscle tested me. I had severe pain at T4 (related to the gallbladder located in the middle of the spine near the upper part of the shoulder blades) She told me I had gallstones and was going to need to eat rice and extra virgin olive oil for 3 days, lay on my right side in an elevated position for 3 days and take these supplements for 6 months. I did. My body responded quickly to this approach.

I was blown away by how quickly this chiropractor was able to determine what was wrong and how to address it. No surgery needed! I thought to myself, I really need to learn this technique.

Here I am today, utilizing the same chiropractic and nutritional evaluation that saved me from having my gallbladder removed. Over the past 17 plus years, I have been able to help many patients who are seeking safe and healthy ways to balance their body.

And it doesn't stop there. Over the years, due to stressors, I have experienced a peptic ulcer, herniated and bulging discs, severe immune deficiencies, such as fevers, colds, flus, infections, just like a lot of my patients. Doctors are not invincible. We go through many of the same things our patients do. I share my experiences and ways that I have bounced back. Chiropractic care, first and foremost is my go to for my health care needs. In addition to my weekly wellness adjustments, I may need to add one or two more visits in to my chiropractor to keep me in my office!"

I get adjusted to be healthy!

Dr. Kelly A. Chwojdak
