Plasticity Brain Centers of Orlando, FL is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Adam Klotzek, DC, DACNB, FACFN, FABVR, FICC to its clinical team. Dr. Klotzek recently relocated to Orlando from Minneapolis, MN, to work for a practice that is on the “cutting edge of functional neurology”.
Dr. Klotzek is an accomplished worldwide lecturer in the field of neurology and ReceptorBased neurological treatment. He holds fellowship status in both functional neurology and vestibular rehabilitation, as well as holding certifications in attention deficit disorder, electrodiagnostics, and sports rehabilitation. He has special interests in developing novel treatment applications, the effects of joint misalignments on brain function, and has authored a number of published medical papers. Dr. Klotzek is also the longest serving faculty professor at the Carrick Institute of Clinical Neuroscience and Rehabilitation in Cape Canaveral, FL. He will continue to teach for the Carrick Institute, while attending patients at Plasticity Brain Centers. In an interview with Dr. Klotzek, he felt that in order for him to deliver the highest quality education, he needed to remain current with technology and applications by actively treating patients, and collaborate with other great minds.
Dr. Klotzek played a pivitol in the educational experience of Plasticity Brain Center’s Lead Clinician, Dr. Matthew Antonucci. In his story about how he became a functional neurologist, and when interviewed, Dr. Antonucci recalls, “as a young child, my immigrant grandfather would take care of my while my parents were at work. He was an incredible teacher that greatly influenced my approach to patient care in a way he was never able to realize prior to his passing. He would always stress the importance of 3 things: having many tools in your toolbox; understand how to use the right tool for the job; and improvise when there was no tool for the task at hand. I feel that he is the reason that I seek to learn from some very dynamic, and skilled clinicians such as Drs. Adam Klotzek and Ted Carrick.” Dr. Carrick has been labeled the father of Chiropractic Neurology, a government-recognized subspecialty of the chiropractic profession. Prior to, and along with Dr. Antonucci, Dr. Adam Klotzek had been his long-time protege.
“I heard Dr. Klotzek first speak at a Carrick Institute conference in Atlanta, on the topic of the Neurology of the Spinal Manipulation. He described this spinal adjustment as one tool in a Chiropractic Neurologist’s toolbox, to affect brain function and body health. Then he showed us video cases of Dr. Carrick treating some of his patients with complex neurological conditions that literally disappeared in front of our eyes, using nothing by his knowledge and his hands. This is exactly what I needed to hear and see. I was going to be a Chiropractic Neurologist”, says Antonucci.
For his own educational experience, Dr. Klotzek first attended the University of Windsor in Ontario, Canada, where he received his bachelor’s degree in biology. He then pursued his doctoral degree in chiropractic at the Logan University in the greater St. Louis area of Missouri. Dr. Klotzek then completed his postgraduate study of chiropractic neurology through the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies, where he received certification as a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board, and was also inducted as a fellow into the International College of Chiropractic.
The doctors at Plasticity Brain Centers are excited to welcome Dr. Klotzek and his years of experience and expertise to the clinic. With more than 25 years of experience practicing chiropractic and rehabilitation medicine, Dr. Klotzek is excited to bring new ideas and methods to the practice. Recently, he’s been working with virtual reality applications to help recalibrate eye movements in patients who have suffered from concussions. Innovations like this, combined with Dr. Klotzek’s years of experience and research in the field of neurology make him the perfect addition to the team.
