William_Charschan_GymnasiumFocusing on the biomechanics of running and gait, Dr. Charschan “The body mechanic” is passionate about the need for a system that allows health care practitioners to better diagnose, agree and then treat mechanical problems, the basis for most chronic pain. Building on the work of Dr. Brian Rothbart, Dr. Charschan developed unique methods of screening body mechanics based on body style in a way that makes it easy to improve diagnostic inter‐reliability between health care practitioners.

Dr. Charschan has lectured on his diagnostic methods and treatment to the sports council at Palmer Chiropractic College, Association of NJ Chiropractors Sports Council and has published articles on kinetic chains in the magazine Dynamic Chiropractic.

Dr. Charschan regularly volunteers at numerous athletic events including track and field, Martial Arts, Ultimate Frisbee, National Aerobic championships, Grappling, Soccer, Football and The New York marathon.

Practicing in Scotch Plains and North Brunswick, Dr. Charschan lives in New Jersey with his wonderful wife Beth, a business owner, his daughter, Gabriell and son, Jesse who is glad to have a chiropractor for a dad after an afternoon of raking fall leaves.

Dr. William Charschan “The body mechanic” Patient Advocate, Enthusiastic Medical Practitioner and Educator

Based on years of experience and thousands of successful pain‐related patient care outcomes, Dr. Charschan believes pain and functional limitation is a symptom of mechanical problems. Moreover, functional and mechanical problems need functional and mechanical solutions. Expensive testing, medication and surgery are last resorts, not answers. To prove it, Dr. Charschan can provide a live audience participation demonstration where he assesses an audience member’s pain‐related symptoms, correctly identifies and addresses the real source of the problem. SPOILER ALERT: The source of the problem is almost never what you think it is.

Dr. Charschan lives and practices in central New Jersey and has treated thousands of patients of all ages, including celebrity and amateur athletes. He is the medical director of USA Track and Field New Jersey, maintains several popular blogs educating readers and addressing health care issues and plays a mean guitar for his New Jersey band, “Midlife Crisis.”

Dr. Charschan is a patient‐consumer and health care provider educator and advocate helping patients find answers and choose the kind of health care providers that can allow them to live a healthier and more pain free life.
