Dr. Thomas B. Wachtmann, DC
Dr. Thomas Wachtmann is proficient in a wide variety of Chiropractic adjusting techniques. He treats each patient individually and finds the right combination that works for them.
Dr. Wachtmann practices Functional Diagnostic Medicine which focuses on finding and treating the cause of many disorders and diseases rather than just suppressing symptoms like many other treatments do.
In addition to traditional Chiropractic care, Dr. Wachtmann offers metabolic and neurological treatments which help many chronic disorders and diseases. These include but are not limited to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s disease, Fibromyalgia, Hot flashes, Hormonal imbalances, Vertigo/Dizziness, Digestive disturbances, Insomnia, Migraine headaches, Stress, Balance disorders and the list goes on. He also utilizes whole food nutritional supplementation, detoxification protocols, oxygen therapy, brain based therapies and non-surgical spinal decompression.
Dr. Wachtmann has over years 24 years of experience working with newborns to the elderly, professional athletes (The Philadelphia Eagles and Phillies), professional musicians, other health care providers and was the team physician for his local Semi-Professional football team (The Lehigh Valley Steelers) for three years and they won the championship all three years.
Dr. Wachtmann chose to be a Chiropractor because it is holistically oriented and focuses on fixing problems, NOT simply masking symptoms. Chiropractic is a huge pathway toward health and wellness. It is true, "health care," not "sickness care." One of the keys to being truly healthy is to maintain your health and not wait until it fails before you do something about it. Dr. Wachtmann finds helping patients with their current health challenges and educating them toward a healthier and better future to be extremely satisfying.

Any fibromyalgia treatment must address the patient's ability to function: to hold a job, to perform routine household tasks, and to lead a healthy, fulfilling social life.
Chiropractic care is especially suited to help manage and even eliminate the pain and fatigue associated with fibromyalgia. In fact, numerous studies indicate that chiropractic may be among the most effective treatment options available for fibromyalgia sufferers.

Causes of Fibromyalgia
No one knows what causes fibromyalgia. Some researchers think it may be a combination of a number of different factors, such as:
Some studies have suggested that people with fibromyalgia have abnormal levels of several different chemicals that help send and increase pain signals to and from the brain. Whether these abnormalities are a cause or a result of fibromyalgia is unknown, but scientific reports have shown chiropractic to help.
Signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia can vary, depending on the weather, stress, physical activity or even the time of day. Common signs and symptoms include:

*"I came in with a lot of pain in my lower back, neck, and down my left arm. Family doctor told me the pain in my arm was my lunar nerve and it originated in my upper back and neck. Since coming in to Dr. Tom, most of my pain has been relieved and my range of motion has increased in my neck and shoulder. I am very pleased with my progress as is my family doctor."
*"I’ve been to 3 Chiropractors in my life. Dr. Thomas is the best in my book. Dr. Thomas has my neck and back feeling great. Dr. Thomas is the best Chiropractor I’ve seen in my life."
*"I was in a bad phase when I came. I’m very happy to come to Dr. Wachtmann who helps me to get inshape. I’ve told other people about this place."
*"I am athletic and full of arthritis from previous sports injuries. Dr. Wachtmann gives me great adjustments including my hands and feet! At age 55 I am able to run, jump, swim, and bike like I did 20 years ago! Dr. Wachtmann also has expert knowledge of common health elements and is able to offer simple, non-drug solutions!"
*"After only one treatment I felt great. My neck and shoulders are still good. Lower back is just starting to hurt after more than 2 weeks. I’m amazed. I think continued adjustments will make a significant difference in the way I feel."
*"When I came here the first time I couldn’t turn my head. I was in so much pain I didn’t know what to do. My doctor said I needed surgery, but I wanted a 2nd opinion. After a couple of adjustments I felt like my old self again. I ride my bike 20 miles once a week, play with my son, and I didn’t have to miss work, all thanks to Dr. Tom."
*"Prior to being treated here I had issues with my back that would keep me in pain constantly. I had trouble sitting or standing for extended periods of time, even holding my baby daughter for 10-15 minutes without experiencing pain in my back. Now after only a couple of months my pain is nonexistent and I have more flexibility. I’m glad I found Dr. Tom and came to him for treatment."
*"I have been coming to Dr. Tom for over a year and I have made a drastic improvement from his therapy. I would highly recommend coming here."
*"Thank you for a great experience for my first visits to a Chiropractor. After one visit I already felt a difference. Dr. Wachtmann walked me through what he was doing and why and made me feel at ease. After only 3 appointments my back is feeling back to normal. Thank you again!"
*"I love to play goalie in ice hockey. An injury was so painful that I had to stop playing this game for two years. I had MRIs done and saw sports injury doctors. No one could help me recover. Then I had my first ever Chiropractic visit with Dr. Wachtmann. He noticed immediately that my hips were counter-rotated. After six weeks of adjustments, my chronic pain went away completely. I now play hockey every week, pain free. And, I get adjusted every month!"
*"When I first came in the pain was so bad I was waking up every 2 hours in pain in my neck and head. I was taking 4 acetaminophen at every time the pain hit. Pain would hit while on the road and I would have to stop till pain subsided.
I now have a 100% turn around. I have no pain and I sleep all night. I’m now on time for work and able to work longer hours pain free."

*"The reason for coming to the office was to receive Low level Laser Therapy by Dr. Tom Wachtmann for my low back pain. The pain in my back (tightness) has diminished and my energy level has increased. Without laser treatments, the pain in my back would have continued. In a year from now, I expect greater relief from my back pain. I have spoken to family and friends stating the improvement in my low back by being treated with the laser therapy"
*"The last couple of years, I’ve been having problems with the thoracic area of my spine. I’m a patient of Dr. Tom Wachtmann and he told me about the Cold Laser Therapy that he does, and I decided to try it. After 5 treatments, I started noticing how much better I felt. I’ve gotten more mobility and almost no discomfort. I highly recommend the procedure."
*"I have suffered with a herniated disc for years until Dr. Tom put me on the computerized non-surgical decompression table. There was some immediate relief, but after several treatments, the chronic pain that I had been dealing with went away. Now I am doing the maintenance chiropractic care and have a much better all over healthy life."
