Meet Dr. Richard Jankunas

In April of 2009 we welcomed a new Doctor to the practice, Dr. Richard Jankunas. He has brought many new techniques and therapy to the Center including the activator method and spinal decompression. His joining has allowed us to expand our hours for accepting patients Monday through Saturday. 

Dr. Jankunas obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in 1994 from Hobart College. In 1998, he received his doctorate in chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College, graduating magna cum laude. He was a member of the Phi Chi Omega Honor Society, and received advanced certification in diagnostic imaging. 

Dr. Jankunas previously worked at one of the largest chiropractic facilities in Ohio for nine years, and also practiced at a chiropractic clinic in Boston. Post-graduate education has included courses in pediatrics, soft tissue procedures, whiplash management and nutrition. His experiences include working with a range of patients from top athletes to women and children of all ages.

Dr. Jankunas and his family have strong community connections. Dr. Jankunas is a 1990 graduate of Amsterdam High School. His father, Richard Jankunas, Sr. worked in the Amsterdam school district for more than 34 years first as a social studies teacher and later as principal of the middle school. His mother, Jeanne Jankunas, was assistant vice president of the former Mohawk Community Bank, and also served as a member of the board of directors and foundation board of Amsterdam Memorial Hospital. She remains an active member of the hospital’s women’s auxiliary.
