Gary Tanchak, DC
Gary Tanchak, DC is a Chiropractor that takes a comprehensive approach to spinal and extremity injuries. He takes the entire body’s biomechanics as well as lifestyle into account when addressing injury, in order to help rid the patient of their pain and keep it from coming back in the future. Dr. Tanchak addresses patient’s injuries through a combination of passive modalities, such as spinal and extremity manipulations, Active Release Technique, and non-surgical spinal decompression.
Dr. Tanchak graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in San Jose, California where he focused heavily on sports injury, especially in the field of surfing and mountain biking. He was granted a prestigious internship opportunity with the medical team for the World Surf League during which he treated professional surfing athletes. While still in Chiropractic school, Dr. Tanchak was also hired by a Fortune 500 tech company in Silicon Valley to provide Chiropractic care for its employees at its onsite wellness center. Following graduation, Dr. Tanchak continued to work and live in San Jose, California before deciding to return to his roots in Red Bank, New Jersey.
While growing up in New Jersey, Dr. Tanchak was extremely active and enjoyed skateboarding, surfing and playing lacrosse, all of which were activities that occasionally resulted in minor injuries. To maintain this lifestyle, he regularly saw a Chiropractor, and through this experience, a spark to help others with their injuries was ignited in him. He now carries that with him into all of his treatments.
