Munroe Chiropractic celebrates 25 years of eliminating patients’ aches and pains
For the past 25 years, Munroe Chiropractic has been helping patients rid themselves of many types of pain, including neck and back aches, tennis elbow and migraines.
“At Munroe Chiropractic, we resolve the mechanical problems correctly,” said Dr. Ken Munroe, who established the business with his wife, Ellen, in 1987. “We make sure that we get results from people who haven’t had good results from other offices.”
The practice is located at 6035 Main St., Amherst, near Williamsville South High School.
Munroe said he uses hands-on techniques to painlessly manipulate the spine, which consists of 24 moveable vertebrae. He concentrates on the alignment of the spine as the key tool to maintaining proper body function.
“We have a great reputation for fixing any problems that people might have,” he said.
A native of Canada, Munroe is an alumni of Life Chiropractic College in Atlanta. In 1999, Munroe was named state Chiropractor of the Year, an award he said always makes him proud.
He said Munroe Chiropractic features five doctors each specializing in certain areas and techniques to allow patients to receive the most optimum results.
“We have five phenomenal chiropractors here,” Munroe said. “I am very confident that this office has the five greatest chiropractors under one roof.”
He said the business’ belief that chiropractics are an art, philosophy and a science has led to great success in patients.
“We succeed where everyone else fails,” Munroe said.
A former swimming coach for Canisius and St. Gregory the Great schools, Munroe has aided many student and professional athletes during his tenure as a chiropractor.
“I support all the local high schools and have been able to work with many athletes and helped them get rid of their pain,” he said.
Munroe also works with patients who may have workers compensation claims pending as well as assisting people who have been injured as a result of a vehicle collision.
“My patients come first,” he said. “I always make sure to follow up with everyone I see,” he said.
Munroe Chiropractic also assists patients affected by temporomandibular disorders, which occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint and surrounding facial muscles. This is most commonly known as TMJ.
Munroe said even though 25 years have passed since he opened his original office on Main Street near South Cayuga Road, he is not looking at retiring anytime soon.
“I still have the passion for it,” he said. “I still love what I do. I can’t retire.”
The practice is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Fridays, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays, and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sundays.
