Dr. Jeff Malucci
Dr. Jeff Malucci did his undergraduate studies at the University of Buffalo, specializing in exercise science and athletic training. He accumulated countless hours of therapy and training with the university’s football, basketball, track, wrestling, soccer, and tennis teams. While this was an exciting career path, Dr. Malucci’s interest in the biomechanics and injury complex of the human body led him to the field of Chiropractic.
Dr. Malucci graduated from Life Chiropractic College in 2005 and continued his studies focusing on injury rehabilitation and prevention, sports chiropractic, extremity adjusting and human biomechanics. While attending Life Chiropractic College, Dr. Malucci’s interest in the human body continued as he instructed human anatomy lab, aiding and performing human cadaver dissections.
After graduating, Dr. Malucci practiced at In-Balance Chiropractic with Dr. Alan Beckerman. Dr. Malucci’s relationship with Dr. Beckerman proved to be invaluable as he learned to combine an in-depth knowledge of the musculoskeletal system with energetic and nutritional healing techniques; facilitating, initially, relief from pain and, ultimately, a genuine and lasting higher level of health and overall well being. It was here Dr. Malucci learned the finer details of muscle testing structural and postural muscles to determine what imbalances, if any are present. These tests are biodynamic kinesiological muscle challenge and will reveal previously undiagnosed weakness and hypertonicity, both a cause of future breakdown.
In 2007, Dr. Malucci found Synergy Release Sports. At Synergy he was introduced to Synergy Release Therapy as a technique to achieve the necessary balance between nerves, muscles, and bones that prevents overuse injuries, and aid in the resolution and rehabilitation of inevitable injuries that do occur in sports or in life.
In 2010, Dr. Malucci embarked on another journey. He developed a close bond with Don Myers and Brian Glotzbach of Body Mechanics. They joined forces and Dr. Malucci started Malucci Sports Therapy.
In 2012 Dr. Malucci studied with Dr Alan Phillips in New Zealand. Here, he learned a technique that uses the latest cellular research to address causes not symptoms. This technique identifies and corrects the patients complaint at the cellular level.
A Philosophy was born, one that he uses today. He formulated an approach that identify underlying biomechanical dysfunction that set the stage for musculoskeletal failures. These adverse structural issues cause stress and/or degeneration of specific tissues for weeks, months or even years before they finally lead to failure. The system addresses the biomechanical breakdown instead of treating the symptoms. By following this protocol, see to it that our patients recover faster, avoid reoccurrence and remain injury free.
In 2012, Dr. Malucci was honored with “Chiropractor Of The Year” by Jezebel magazine.
Dr Malucci’s experience has given him the amazing opportunity of traveling to numerous cities around the country to adjust numerous professional athletes and celebrities.
Dr. Adam Zimmerman
Dr. Adam Zimmerman was raised in a military family stationed primarily in Key West and Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. He graduated from the University of West Florida with his degree in psychology. His interest in chiropractic was sparked after moving to Atlanta in 2007. He began experiencing intense knee pain that kept him from enjoying some of his favorite athletic activities. At that time he became a patient of Dr. Jeff Malucci, DC. The amazing results he received from Dr. Malucci’s treatment inspired him to go to chiropractic school. Injury rehabilitation and prevention are at the core of his philosophy. Chiropractic allowed Dr. Zimmerman to continue his favorite interests and that is what drives his passion for offering the same opportunities to his patients.
Throughout his schooling in chiropractic he has focused on biomechanics and the impacts they have on athletic and daily performance. While at Life University he was a member of the Sports Chiropractic Council. He also completed supplemental extremity adjusting courses in order to become a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (CCEP). This certification gives him knowledge in everything from shoe orthotics and functional movement assessments to specific upper and lower extremity adjustments. He utilized his history with Malucci Sports Therapy to shadow Dr. Malucci to learn his approach to care as well as learning from the vast collective experience of the massage therapists in the office. Dr. Zimmerman further solidified his skill by interning with Dr. Malucci. He graduated with honors from Life University in Marietta, Georgia in June of 2013. He officially joined Malucci Sports Therapy shortly after graduation.
