While earning his Doctorate of Chiropractic medicine (DC) at New York Chiropractic College, Dr. Zappy became president of the Sports Science and Human Performance club (SSHP), leading representative for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), and with the help of former Los Angeles Clippers Chiropractor (’06-’09) and current Arizona Diamondbacks Consultant, Dr. Craig Liebenson, started his own program at NYCC called Rehab to Performance (R2P). The R2P is a program built to teach students many of the techniques and assessment methods Dr. Zappy learned from educational seminars outside of the NYCC curriculum including fascial release, functional movement assessments, rehabilitative exercises, neuromuscular re-education techniques, performance enhancement and biomechanical evaluations. The R2P program helps bridge the gap from rehab to performance training. In addition to the doctorate and extra-curricular activities, Dr. Zappy also obtained a Master’s Degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition (MSACN).
The program taught him that the best nutrition comes from whole food organic sources. While we take a “first from food” approach at The Wellness Center, we also offer whole food organic supplements. The education in Chiropractic Medicine, Physical Therapy, and Nutritional Counseling allow for a well-rounded experience at The Wellness Center. Our office is located in Downingtown, PA. Dr. Zappy’s experience treating various conditions comes from his internships while attending school at NYCC. He volunteered at a community service clinic in Rochester, NY called the Mercy Outreach Center, a hospital in Rochester, NY called Monroe, a Veterans Administration Medical Clinic in Bath, NY, and the St. John Fisher College’s Wellness Center.
