Dr. Leonard Samalot, D.C.
Dr. Leonard Samalot will be joining our team of chiropractic physicians’ effective March 1st 2017. Dr. Samalot is a graduate of the InterAmerica University of Puerto Rico where he received a B.S. degree in chemistry followed by a Doctorate of chiropractic degree from the Parker University in Dallas, TX. As a chiropractor, Dr. Samalot is certified in multi-adjusting techniques as well as the activator method, a specialized method for those in need of gentle care particularly for the Medicare population where manual spinal manipulation is not performed but correction of spinal segments is nevertheless accomplished. He is also certified in the field of applied kinesiology used extensively in muscle testing and nutrition deficiencies. This latter skill is rare here in the Cape where you seldom find this particular type of Chiropractic practitioner, who specializes in muscle work where muscle strength almost always dictates nutritional deficiencies.
His training in the field of nutrition and metabolic syndromes is quite extensive. He is one of the few chiropractic physicians to utilize an individualized approach to a wellness care program by utilizing a concept called “Biological Terrain Analysis”. This approach is comprised of analyzing blood, urine and saliva specimens for the treatment of most metabolic body imbalances. Correction is done utilizing a combination of diet, vitamin, and mineral supplements as well as herbal therapy. This methodology results in correcting pH imbalances as well as metabolic and autonomic nervous system dysfunction. His philosophy is very sound, he states that by detecting diseases early at the tissue and cellular level, they can be corrected before reaching a stage of pathology.
Dr. Samalot is an educator at heart. He enjoys instructing his patients in the care of their structure and human functions, so that together he and his patient can become partners in his patient’s recovery and wellness. Presently, he is a professor at the Springfield Technical Community College in Springfield, MA, where he teaches courses in the field of Anatomy, Physiology and Microbiology.
