About Dr. Brian A. Zelasko

Born and raised in Western New York, board-certified Chiropractor Dr. Brian A. Zelasko obtained his Doctorate of Chiropractic Medicine from New York Chiropractic College and returned home to practice in his home town of Orchard Park, New York. Dr. Zelasko has received extensive training in non-surgical care of spine and orthopedic injuries. 

Since starting into private practice in 2008, Dr. Zelasko has completed extensive post-doctorate education and training in Cervical, Thoracic, and Lumbar spines, Upper Extremity (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand), Lower Extremity (knee, ankle, and foot), and Instrument Adhesion Release, among other advanced training.

He has completed over 600 hours of post-doctorate education and training with a recent 2 year concentration in Cervical Spine and Upper Extremity conditions.  This includes any conditions of the neck, upper back, shoulder, arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, and hand.

Dr. Zelasko comes from an extensive athletic background.  He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science while playing Division 1A Baseball for the University at Buffalo.  His love for weight training and athletics soon led him to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).  It was there Dr. Zelasko designed and implemented safe and effective strength and exercise programs for collegiate and recreational athletes, before moving on to concentrate on becoming the best Non-Surgical Care Doctor possible for the Western New York community.  Today, Dr. Zelasko continues to be unwavering in his commitment to utilize state-of-the-art non-surgical spine and orthopedic techniques that produce proven, long-lasting, and superior results.
