Dr. Richard Gelband
Dr. Richard Gelband was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. His interest, even throughout his early education, has always been in the field of science. Undergraduate studies led to a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering. His passion for science continued and gradually shifted to the biological sciences. It was then that he was introduced to the field of Chiropractic. The philosophy was in perfect alignment with everything he believed about healthcare.
“Doctors don’t heal the body; the body heals itself. The doctor simply breaks down the obstacles to healing so that the body can return to its natural state. The power that created us is the power that heals us.”
As his education continued, Dr. Gelband began to witness the amazing healing potential this discipline had to offer. Also, his background in Applied Kinesiology (AK) led him to consider the wide range of possibilities for healing beyond simply treating the structure. Though his study of AK was not a part of traditional chiropractic curriculum, to this day it plays a major role in his highly effective protocol.
Since graduating for National College of Chiropractic in 1976, his education of AK and other related techniques continue; frequently attending workshops and seminars throughout the United States. This active participation allows him to remain on the cutting edge of new and unique treatment options. Dr. Gelband currently presents workshops and lectures to groups and organizations in the surrounding area.
In addition to treating the traditional musculoskeletal disorders, a large segment of his practice is devoted to the care of other functional conditions. After thirty three years of practice, Dr. Gelband is still passionate about chiropractic and energy medicine and it is in this arena that he truly feels at home. He is a member of the American Chiropractic Association, the Illinois Chiropractic Society and the International College of Applied Kinesiology.
Dr. Gelband resides in Naperville, Illinois. His life has been blessed by three grown sons, all of whom live close by.
