Dr. Telkov


Dr. Telkov

Dr. Telkov received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in 2018. His interest in the Gonstead system arose early on while attending Northwestern College of Chiropractic. What made the Gonstead system stand out for him was the unique approach of combining thorough x-ray analysis, thermal reading (to detect local inflammation), static palpation, and motion palpation, to get to the cause of a patient’s spinal dysfunction so it can be corrected.

Dr. Telkov’s personal experience with a lower back injury, and having it treated using the Gonstead System, is what set his passion ablaze for chiropractic.

Dr. Telkov has a particular interest in working with athletic injuries due to his own experience with overcoming sports injuries. He has a keen interest in treating general spinal challenges. He enjoys enabling patients the ability to return doing activities they enjoy as soon as possible, by restoring the proper neurological function through the use of precise adjusting techniques developed by Dr. Clarence Gonstead.

In his free time he enjoys playing chess, reading, being outside, and spending time with his family and friends.
