Why Dr. Greg Wollen became a Wellness-based Chiropractor:
Almost two years after graduating from St. Bonaventure, I began working in a small family-run company in Lancaster, NY. During my first year there, I started getting headaches. Over the next six months, these headaches went from bad to worse. They became so intense that I needed to be at home by five o'clock, on a couch, in a dark room, with ice on my head, popping handfuls of painkillers. I went for all the tests available. Finally, I was told that I will just have to live with it! I had no idea what to do or where to go, but I knew I was not going to "just live with it!" My sister suggested I see a doctor of chiropractic. "A chiropractor?" I said, "What do they know about headaches?" She told me that she had been going to a chiropractor for a couple of years. She was suffering from migraine headaches since her early teens. For one week out of every month, she was in bed because she couldn't handle the pain. Even the strongest migraine medicines on the market wouldn't touch the pain she was in. A friend of hers suggested she try chiropractic, and even though she didn't believe in it, her life was being ruined... so she went. Now she sees one regularly just to stay healthy. I wasn't about to give up the things I loved, so I decided to give it a try (even though I was still a bit skeptical). The doctor did an exam, took a couple of x-rays, and then showed me my problem. I remember my first adjustment like it was yesterday. I walked into the doctor office and said, "You had better fix me up fast, doc. I can feel the throbbing start and it's impossible for me to drive with my headaches." With a little smirk on his face (like he knew something that I didn't) he said he would do his best. After my adjustment, I was driving home, taking my time, looking around, and then it hit me - FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOUR MONTHS I DIDN'T HAVE A HEADACHE! Now I knew what the smirk on the doctor's face was about. Over time, my headaches didn't happen as often. As a matter of fact, they disappeared altogether. I was so excited that, (by now I'm sure you guessed it), I became a Doctor of chiropractic myself.
After learning more about the health benefits of combining Chiropractic, proper nutrition and taking the right supplements and vitamins for your body, I dove into learning all I could as to what it takes to get healthy and stay healthy (the right way!). This began my career as a wellness-based doctor.
As a Chiropractor since 2000, Dr. Greg has worked hard to develop systems to help his patients attain their highest level of health possible. Working with patients from newborns and up to the wise age of 95, has allowed Dr. Greg to refine what it takes to be truly healthy. Dr. Greg Wollen has developed a distinctly different system to evaluate your health. He combines blood work analysis (not using typical reference ranges, but using Optimal Values), a system survey that will analyze 8 different systems of your body as to overall function, and lastly a specific form of Nutritional testing to determine a patients individual nutritional needs. Add to that the most extensive and complete consultation you will find. All these evaluations combined give his patients a list of specific nutritional needs and the priority in which they need to be addressed. This is said to be the most comprehensive nutritional evaluation available.
Dr. Greg has been invited to speak to numerous groups and organizations as well as regular appearances on WGRZ-TV's, 'The Healthy Zone.' Dr. Greg has developed a specific lecture series titled "Dr. Greg's Empowerment Series" outlining the steps necessary to help you be the healthiest you can be.
