Photo by Jim SmerecakPurchase color photos at www.BeeNews.com Chiropractors Danial Qureshi and Mohamed Munassar each have their own history of pains associated with the neck and back.

Their experiences throughout the years eventually led to both “Dr. Dan” and “Dr. Mo,” as they’re now referred to by their clients, in uniting forces to open Chiro One Wellness, 4214 Clinton St., West Seneca. They officially opened for business in July.

Munassar, who was born and raised in the Town of West Seneca, was in the Army National Guard for six years. During his deployment to Iraq in 2004, he began experiencing what he called severe neck spasms roughly once a month. Then, he dislocated his shoulder during hand-to-hand combat.

He eventually sought chiropractic treatment at a military hospital which, over time, rid the pains in his neck.

“That solidified what I wanted to do,” said Munassar on choosing his career. He also said that his grandmother praised the chiropractic care she received, also serving as inspiration to him entering the field.

For Qureshi, of Toronto, Canada, a series of automobile accidents left him undergoing surgeries and treatment that similarly inspired him to enter the health and wellness industry.

The pair met while studying at New York Chiropractic College. Both possess bachelors’ degrees while Munassar also has a master’s degree in clinical nutrition.

Their new facility on Clinton Street boasts a spa-like atmosphere as well as such state-of-the-art equipment as the ProAdjuster.

The equipment gives a doctor vital information about a person’s spine while using a sophisticated sensor-like instrument to treat dysfunctional segments of the spine; this also allows a doctor to reanalyze the spine, providing pre- and post-data that is beneficial in overseeing a patient’s course of care.

“It’s very gentle and very effective,” said Munassar, noting that it’s ideal to use on such patients as the elderly or pregnant women.

Qureshi also said that they are one of very few, if not the only chiropractic facility in the area, to possess the ProAdjuster.

Also in the open-space “care center” at Chiro One Wellness, there is an intersegmental traction table that is used to treat soft tissue injuries surrounding the spine, such as muscles and ligaments. Another popular chiropractic treatment is spinal decompression — used to treat disc problems or shooting pains down the arms and legs — which the business similarly executes with high-tech equipment, and offers low, competitive pricing for the treatments.

Benefits of spinal decompression include increasing range of motion and flexibility, as well as to stretch ligaments and tendons.

Chiro One Wellness also features a few private rooms for one-on-one treatment or consultations, as well as a room with radiology equipment where they can both take and process X-rays.

But the reactive treatments to existing problems are only half of the services offered — both doctors are also concerned with a person’s overall well-being, and so they’ve created weekly programs tailored to a person’s overall health and wellness. These classes will be offered for free at 7 p.m. every Tuesday, beginning next week, Sept. 20.

Chiro One Wellness is currently offering a limited-time deal: $35 for a one-hour massage with massage therapist Sandy Smolkovich.

Walk-in patients are welcome, though making an appointment is preferred. For information, call the business at 675-BACK (2225) or visit Chiro One Wellness on Facebook. email: kmcdowell@beenews.com
