About Dr. Keresztesy:
I grew up in Northeast Ohio and studied Electrical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University, then came to Chicago to work for Motorola to design cell phone systems. During my 13 year career with Motorola I earned a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois in Chicago.

One day while on an amusement park ride, I felt a pop in my neck. For the following two days, my neck pains were so severe I could hardly move. After a few more days the pain began to subside. I thought I was about back to normal. As the months went by I gradually began to feel worse. After two years I was a wreck, unable concentrate, sleep, eat, or really enjoy my life. I had no idea what was happening to me.

Having visited several great doctors in the Chicago area, we could not find anything that made sense about why I was in such bad shape. They inspired me to return to school to study about medicine. I had to reeducate myself to learn about what was going on with my health. In school we studied the nervous system and its role in the body's ability to function. Many of the systems that were attached to the nervous system seemed to be areas where I had problems.

I saw an advertisement about a local Chiropractor. During my first appointment, the Chiropractor explained to me about how the brain controls the entire body through the nervous system. That the nerves travel through the spine and can become pinched as they exit the spine. When the nerves are pinched, the nerve signal does not communicate properly between the brain and the rest of the body. The pinching of a nerve could be causing some of the pain I was experiencing and the numb feeling in my arms and legs.
I decided to give the Chiropractor a try and the results were beyond my expectations. As the weeks went by, my health began returning to normal. After recovering all of my health I decided that I must become a Chiropractor. 
I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, where I was introduced to Dr. Roy W. Sweat and a style of adjusting the spine that he invented called Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic. It is a very gentle and adjustment to the top of the neck.  It involves a great deal of precision and analysis. 

After graduating from Palmer, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to further study about Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic under the guidance of Dr. Sweat.  This proved to be a very life changing opportunity for me, where I was able to work alongside a true Master of Chiropractic and help restore the health of several of the patients.  I will always be grateful to Dr. Sweat for al that he has taught me about Atlas Orthogonal and about how to care for the sick.

Having missed all the excitement and the hustle and bustle that is Chicago, I decided to return to the Windy City and bring the Atlas Orthogonal technique with me. I look forward to offering this low force variation of Chiropractic to anyone that will benefit from it.
