Dr. Zachary Truncali
Dr. Zachary Truncali holds a Doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College as well as a Master’s of Science in Acupuncture from the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. This enables him to uniquely combine both acupuncture and chiropractic in the same treatment. He believes that the integration of these techniques allows him to provide a more enhanced level of care for his patients than would be possible through either system alone.
A dual treatment involves a thorough review of patients’ personal health history and present condition, orthopedic testing, a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnosis and personalized acupuncture treatment, as well as targeted therapeutic muscle work, rehabilitative exercise and / or qi gong instruction, and a chiropractic adjustment. He also incorporates other TCM techniques as needed such as cupping, moxibustion, gua sha, tui na, and dietary therapy.
Dr. Truncali was consecutively named to the Dean’s List in both the chiropractic and acupuncture programs, was named a member of the Phi Chi Omega Chiropractic Scholastic Honor society, and is certified in Clean Needle Technique by the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Dr. Truncali has worked extensively with a variety of patients during his clinical rotations at locations such as Canandaigua VA Medical Center, Rochester VA Hospital, Monroe Community Hospital, Seneca Falls Health Center, and NYCC Campus Health Center. Additionally, he has worked with athletes including baseball teams, marathoners, triathlon competitors, CrossFitters, and weekend warriors.
In April 2016, Dr. Truncali studied at Zhejiang Hospital in Hangzhou, China. There he completed a 100 hour clinical internship program under the supervision of the Zhejiang Provincial Hospital and learned contemporary acupuncture and tui na techniques, the latest acupuncture theories and approaches in the integration of Traditional Chinese Medicine with Western Medical models.
Dr. Truncali specializes in acute and chronic painful conditions of the spine, knees, and shoulders. He also treats carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, digestive disorders, insomnia and stress. He is passionate about customizing a plan for each patient involving simple yet powerful lifestyle changes, dietary recommendations, and rehabilitative exercise. He gets to know each patient and chooses the best tools and recommendations for them in order to best set a path toward healing and independence.
