Dr. Richard Soukup, DC
Dr. Soukup was born and raised in Kenmore, New York. He received his bachelor's degree from SUNY Geneseo before relocating to Atlanta, GA where he attended Life University and completed the four-year doctor of chiropractic program. Dr. Soukup has associated in two very successful practices in Atlanta, GA and Lancaster, PA where he refined his skills and studied advanced techniques in CBP, Torque-Release tonal adjusting, and soft tissue work. After spending the past three years as Clinic Director at The Joint, Ken-Ton and Supervising doctor for several other NYS Joint clinic franchises Core Wellness Chiropractic has evolved. The Wellness Lifestyle While I was growing up my mother promoted a wellness lifestyle in our family. She always prepared healthy, well balanced meals and limited the amount of processed foods in the house. Early to bed and early to rise was the rule and a day packed with physical and mental activity ensured it. When a family member felt ill Mom's prescription was rest and plenty of fluids, not medication. She had learned from her own experiences that medicine, in general, doesn't help the body heal, it merely masks symptoms. Though she had the wellness lifestyle pretty well figured out one thing was missing...Chiropractic care. A Solid Foundation It wasn't till I was finishing my undergraduate degree that I finally discovered chiropractic. My father had suffered an injury and began care as a means of managing his pain. His chiropractor sat him down and explained the role of chiropractic as more than simply restoring proper motion to the spine but also as a means of gaining and maintaining optimal health by providing the nervous system the care it requires to function optimally. Realizing the importance of beginning care early in life my father shared his discovery with his children. Chiropractic's vitalistic appreciation of the body as an integrated whole fit everything I had come to believe in over the years. After seeing the changes in my father's state of well-being I decided to begin chiropractic care myself. Never lose sight of the forest for the trees Soon after beginning care I realized I had found my calling and enrolled in Life University's Doctor of Chiropractic program. The science, art, and theory I learned in Chiropractic College taught me to respect and view the person as a whole. It is important to always remember the body does the healing, not the doctor, and I humbly accept that the educated mind will never surpass our body's own inborn intelligence.

Dr. Soukup's Care Philosophy

Chiropractic is a pro-active form of wellness care. Chiropractic has been found to be an effective alternative to treating neck pain, back pain, and headaches with medications but its true value is found in keeping the bones of your spine properly positioned and moving as they should without restriction. Regular maintenence care before you start to suffer the pain of degeneration is the key to a long and healthy life.
