Dr. Swacha comes to us from snowy northwestern Pennsylvania. He holds a Bachelors Degree from Slippery Rock University in Exercise Physiology, an Associates Degree from the University of Pittsburgh as a Physical Therapy Assistant and received his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from New York Chiropractic College. He has a passion for healing with Chiropractic and nutrition and fully believes that if you take care of your body, your body will take care of you. In his spare time he enjoys watching baseball and his UNC Tarheels. He also enjoys watching his boys (Daman and Olson) play baseball and his daughter (Amelia) play soccer. In addition to watching my kids play sports, i also enjoy watching them grow as individuals. I like to golf when I have time. Dr. Swacha loves the beach, but would never miss an opportunity to take a long hike in the mountains.
