About Dr. Gary T. Scardino

Dr. Gary Scardino lives in Bucks County and is practicing in Newtown. Dr. Scardino attended The College of New Jersey (then Trenton State College) where he met his wife, Marggie. After attending Chiropractic School in Georgia they knew that they wanted to return to this area and raise their two sons. Dr. Scardino took over McAulay Chiropractic in June 1998. When Dr. Scardino isn't at the office he is usually spending time with his wife and children  ( his favorite hobby!), riding bikes, watching them play lacrosse or just hanging out together.

Helping Families Achieve Their Maximum Health Potential

"All through chiropractic school, my main emphasis was on family wellness care. I believe that the family that gets adjusted together stays healthy together, and can then reach their maximum health potential."

Dr. Gary T. Scardino is certified in Chiropractic Pediatrics and was the President of the Pediatrics Club at Life University where he was awarded for his endless commitment to Chiropractic Pediatrics. Dr. Scardino had the honor of learning from the late Dr. Larry Webster who is known in the chiropractic field as the Grandfather of Pediatric Chiropractic and who developed the Webster Breech Turning Technique. ( A non-invasive chiropractic technique developed to turn breech babies into vertex presentation.) Dr. Scardino is also proficient in many chiropractic techniques including Diversified, Thompson, Toggle, and Life Upper Cervical Specific Technique. Dr. Scardino mostly uses the Torque Release Technique (TRT) a low force adjustment combining the greatest subluxation diagnosis methods with the most advanced low force adjusting technique and Pro Adjuster Computerized Adjusting.

A Strong Educational Background

"I understand that the education of a chiropractor plays an intricate part in his ability to deliver quality care. Modern chiropractic is bringing back the interpersonal relationship between the doctor and patient. It is important for the doctor to have both a knowledge of the latest chiropractic advances and an understanding of his patients' individual needs. That's why I take the time to learn each and every patient's spine and can give an adjustment with any degree of force ranging from a light touch to a strong touch. It is important to best accommodate my patients wants and needs."

Dr. Scardino feels that going to professional education is essential in order to be able to deliver the finest chiropractic care and get the best possible results for his patients. That is why he chose one of the finest chiropractic schools in the world and attends all the latest continuing education programs.

Making A Difference As A Doctor Of Chiropractic

"I have a strong commitment to both my patients and my community. Every time I help someone through chiropractic it gives me a feeling of great accomplishment to know that I have helped to change that person's health for the future."

Dr. Scardino feels that his main goal as a Doctor of Chiropractic is to live up to the fullest responsibility of his title. First, as a Chiropractor, he hopes to assist people in reaching their maximum health potential by keeping their nerve system free of subluxation. Second, as a Doctor (which literally means teacher), Dr. Scardino strives to educate his patients of their responsibility to learn about and make healthy choices to better their own infinite health potential. Dr. Scardino is always available for consultation and to speak to your social club or organization.
