|Dr. Ron Schmeltzer, D.C.
Doctor of Chiropractic
|Chiropractic first appeared in Ron Schmeltzer's life at 18 years old. "I was in desperate pain. My right leg was numb, by lower back was killing me, my right shoulder was frozen, I had allergies and asthma, and I suffered from headaches. I had 5 years of medical treatments without any appreciable or lasting results. Within 1 month of chiropractic care, my pain was gone. Within a year, I was as good as new. With my new body, I became faster, stronger, and more coordinated. I became captain of my college basketball team and received state and national honors. Afterwards, I ran marathons. Whereas, I was unable to run short distances without excruciating pain, I was then able to run 50-70 miles a week-regularly. These remarkable changes led me to become a Chiropractor".
In December 1981, Dr Schmeltzer opened his practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. With a burning desire to help people, he gave lectures, spoke on radio and TV, and wrote hundreds of articles spreading his message of natural healing.
