Meet Dr. Alan H. Kunkel, Jr.

Simply put, I was a skeptic…

Wind Gap Chiropractor : Dr. Alan Kunkel

Dr. Alan Kunkel

For about eight months my mother suffered with severe arm pain that would awaken her from sleep at night. She would walk the floor at night with severe pain holding her arm against her body with her other hand trying to get relief. She went to a chiropractor who, without the use of drugs, injections, or surgery, helped my mom regain complete relief from this condition.

It was then – at the age of 13 years old – that I decided to become a chiropractor.

A Prestigious Chiropractic Education

I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, also known as the birth place of chiropractic. It is the first and largest college of chiropractic in the world. The chiropractic philosophy at Palmer was second to none. Chiropractic philosophy is what separates us from other healing arts. The classes that I found most challenging and valuable were Neurophysiology and Neurology because this helped us to understand what controls the function of the human body and how our nervous system works on a cellular level.


Health Care, Naturally

Here at Wind Gap Chiropractic Center, we are attempting to educate our patients about natural health and how keeping the nervous system free from interference allows their bodies to function as close as possible to 100%. Seeing women who have been unable to have children get pregnant as a result of chiropractic adjustments correcting interference to the nervous system that controls their reproductive system. Another especially moving moment was when a female patient was brought to our office having a Grand Mal Epileptic Seizure and when she was adjusted the seizure immediately stopped.

We live in a world where people have depended on medicine to cure their health problems. Chiropractic depends upon the inherent recuperative powers of the body to restore good health. If the cause is addressed and corrected, it is not necessary to treat symptoms. The symptoms resolve when the cause is removed. Nerve interference is one of the most overlooked reasons for pain and suffering.

On a Personal Note

I get adjusted every week and as a result during my first 31 years of practice I have only missed 6 days due to illness. My family gets adjusted at least once a week if not more. My daughter received her first adjustment before she was 24 hours old. There are very few things that are more important to me than keeping my spine subluxation free and the spines’ of my loved ones. After 33 years of practice there is still nothing that I would rather do than adjust people and watch them regain good health.

I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge. Give our Wind Gap chiropractic office a call today or email me with the link below.
