Dr. Galante’s mission is to help people not only get well, but to stay well, naturally, without the use of unnecessary drugs and surgeries.
Dr. Galante grew up with back pain. His mother suffered with it, his father had stenosis and arthritis, his grandfather had 2 low back surgeries (neither surgery helped), several aunts and uncles have dealt with back pain, with it being so prevalent in his family it wasn’t a big surprise that Dr. Galante found himself in a chiropractor’s office at the tender age of 17.
You see, Dr. Galante had a history of low back pain going back to middle school! For years the nagging pain was there, but it wasn’t until a hard hit in a hockey game landed the good doctor on his hip that the back really FLARED UP!
Dr. Galante had his chiropractor stumped, 3 weeks of treatment and not any better! After changing techniques and adding in a few exercises the low back pain was gone…..until the next summer.
While working his summer job at Ace Hardware, Dr. Galante was lifting air conditioners, the next morning he couldn’t get out of bed! This time he was bedridden for 1 week (something we now know is not good for backs). Back to the chiropractor and Dr. Galante was back to work, but this time some residual pain lingered.
Suffering with back pain on and off during his 20’s, he found traditional chiropractic techniques were not relieving the pain and it continued into his early 30’s. This caused Dr. Galante to search for a solution. And he found one. The Cox Technique relieved Dr. Galante’s back pain for the first time in 2 YEARS!
Currently, Dr. Galante uses numerous treatments to improve his patient’s quality of life. In addition to the Cox Technique, he utilizes Manipulation, Physical Therapy, Super Pulsed Laser, Whole Body Standing Vibration, Rebuilder Therapy, Orthotic Therapy, TENS units, Diet and Nutritional Counseling, Kinesiotaping and Massage Therapy.
Dr. Galante lives in Algonquin with his wife and two children.
