Dan Strelcheck was inspired to pursue a career in chiropractic medicine by family and, a life changing personal experience. His uncle ran a successful chiropractic practice in Stevens Point, Wisconsin, in the 40’s. Dan admired the work of his uncle but had other interests and college football was one of them. As a student in college in St. Petersburg, Florida Dan’s fate was sealed when he sustained a massive football injury. The painful migraines and seizures were completely turned around by a skilled chiropractor.
“After that, I thought if I can help one person the way I got helped, my life’s work would have meaning,” said Dan, 73.
Dan Strelcheck Sr., began the practice 50 years ago with humble surroundings at the corner of Route 14 and Pingree Road. A decade later, he built a massive, 6,400-square-foot clinic to accommodate the growing needs of the community. “Patients were naturally enthusiastic to share their results with others, and that increased our growth beyond my wildest expectations.”
The next generation, Dr. Daniel Jr., joined the clinic as owner in 1998, ushering in new ideas for developing the practice and expanding the scope of patient services. A reconfiguration of the space to increase exam rooms, the addition of a physical therapy department, doubling the massage therapy staff and many technical improvements took place immediately. Today, the practice supports a staff of 28, including chiropractors Peter Norton, D.C. and Justin Gonzalez-Ross, D.C.
Thousands of loyal patients continue to share their stories of triumph over pain and injury at the hands of the professionals at Strelcheck.
October 3, 2008 marked the 50th anniversary of Strelcheck Chiropractic Clinic. The business community, patients, and his son, Dr. Daniel Jr. recognized Dr. Daniel Sr. for his accomplishments.
