Geneva chiropractor Dr. Palak Modi

Dr. “PK” Modi

Dr. PK Modi is a Board Certified Chiropractic Physician, who joined Performance Spine and Sport in 2014. Originally from nearby Naperville, Dr. PK went on to Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa where he completed his Bachelor’s in Biochemistry, Cell/Molecular Biology. Following his undergraduate studies, he then went on to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa where he attained his Doctorate in Chiropractic.

After undergrad, Dr. PK had the option of going to Physical Therapy or Chiropractic school, but was ultimately drawn to Chiropractic. “To be able to know I can help someone with a new injury or chronic pain with the use of my knowledge of the human body and movement, and just using my hands was a big deal for me. I knew that getting to the root cause of a person’s problem would be way more beneficial that masking symptoms with drugs, injections, or even surgery.”

In Chiropractic school, Dr. PK found his clinical niche, incorporating soft tissue treatment and rehab with many of his patients. He is a strong believer that a multi-faceted approach to treating the patient brings on the best results in the short and long-term. Looking at the whole picture: posture, alignment, functional movement, soft tissue, lifestyle, ergonomics, all go into helping a patient get better and achieve their goals. His last year of school was capped off by a ‘clinic abroad’ trip to Manaus, Brazil, where he was able to treat hundreds of locals. It solidified his belief that Chiropractic was all along the right choice, having the ability to change thousands of lives over the span of a career.

Dr. PK is highly proficient in many of the Palmer techniques, including Gonstead, Diversified, Activator, and Cox Flexion-Distraction. He is also board certified in Physiotherapy, and has attained post-graduate knowledge in manual soft-tissue therapies. This multitude of skill sets allows him to treat kids, athletes, Crossfit athletes, desk jockeys, weekend warriors, and senior citizens. Patient education in workplace ergonomics, diet and exercise modifications is also strongly emphasized. “What you do outside of the clinic is just as important as what you do in the clinic.”

Outside of the office, Dr. PK likes to stay active with his functional workouts, hiking, bike riding, and hot-yoga. When not sweating, he enjoys spending time with his family, friends, and especially soon-to-be wife. Both ‘foodies’ love to try out new restaurants in Chicago, and are always looking for the next travel destination. And as a ‘die-hard’ Chicago sports fan, chances are he’s cheering on his Cubs, Bears, Bulls, or Blackhawks during the season.
