Dr. Thomas Keating
Dr. Thomas C Keating, DC is a licensed and board certified chiropractor with over 18 years of experience offering non-surgical and drug free solutions to a large range of health problems.
Dr. Thomas Keating was born in Atlantic City and moved to Galloway when he was only 2 years old. Upon graduating from Stockton University in 1999, Dr. Keating continued his education at New York Chiropractic College of Seneca Falls, NY and earned his degree of Doctor of Chiropractic in 2004. He earned his license to practice in NY shortly thereafter and quickly became the lead chiropractor and administrative director of a thriving multi-disciplinary facility on Long Island. During that time, Dr. Keating successfully treated acute and chronic neck and back pain, disc and nerve conditions, headaches and various other injuries related to work or automobile injuries.
He is known for treating sports injuries as well, and can relieve shoulder, wrist, hip, knee, ankle and foot pains. Dr. Tom utilizes a unique fusion of techniques such as Diversified, Cox Flexion/Distraction, Drop Table, Activator, Myofascial Release and Trigger Point Therapy to achieve his goals.
- Chiropractic Adjustments
The most beneficial and important service our office can provide is the Chiropractic spinal adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments not only result in decreased pain but will increase the range of motion and restore skeletal alignment. The loss of alignment and proper motion of the spine causes impingement and interference to the nervous system. This “Subluxation” can affect all functions of the body. Some symptoms of subluxation can include; Sciatica, Back Pain, Neck Pain, Migraine Headaches, Tension Headaches, Shoulder Pain, Muscle Spasm, numbness, poor sleep and a variety of other health problems. Dr. Keating has studied most of the reliable, proven techniques that are available to Chiropractors in practice today. They include: Thompson Drop Table, Diversified, Cox Flexion Distraction, Activator, Y-Strap/Traction/Decompression, S.O.T., Peirce Stillwagon and Extremity Adjusting.
- Physical Modalities
In order to gain the benefits of the Chiropractic adjustment with minimal discomfort to the patient, our doctor’s approach is to reduce any pain and inflammation through the use of physical therapies. By using modalities such as intersegmental traction, electric stimulation, moist heat, ice and infrared laser the patient’s pain and inflammation are reduced allowing the doctor to adjust the cause with minimal force, greater comfort and longer lasting effect.
- Flexibility, Balance and Core Strengthening Exercises
Dr. Keating feels strongly that in order to maintain alignment of the body the patient needs to be instructed in specific therapeutic exercises. With proper instruction our patients are able to take control of their health and reduce risk of injuries while living fuller more active lives. You will be prescribed a personal exercise program that is specific to you.
- Extremity Adjustments
Patients with non-spinal problems find great relief with our doctors extremity treatments to the foot, ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, jaw, elbow, wrist, hand and ribs. The combination of joint manipulation/alignment, deep tissue therapy and rehabilitative exercises bring shockingly successful results. All skeletal joints of motion need alignment, mobility and nutrition to remain healthy.
- Myofascial Release
Myofascial release is a hands on treatment that involves applying pressure to known areas of fibrous adhesions. Adhesions between adjacent connective tissues lead to pain, loss of flexibility and neurologic disorders including weakness and/or numbness. Dr. Keating will evaluate each patient to identify myofascial restrictions and adhesions. Once identified he applies the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
- Custom Fit Foot Orthotics
As part of our plan to optimize your health and recovery we must not overlook the feet. Your feet are the foundation to your posture and skeletal alignment. Following a thorough exam each foot is then digitally scanned to pinpoint abnormalities or faults. Custom foot orthotic inserts or custom fit shoes/sneakers feel great and boost patient success.
- Cold Laser Therapy
The cold laser uses infrared light to reduce inflammation, swelling and pain. The anti-inflammatory effects of the infrared light work at the cellular level. Unlike drugs such as steroid injections and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pills, laser does not suppress inflammation but rather stimulates the body’s cells to reduce inflammation, swelling, and pain.
- Massage Therapy
Its very helpful to include massage therapy into your treatment plan to address specific areas of tension, muscle spasm and trigger points. Our massage room is clean, quiet and relaxing.

I highly recommend Dr. Tom Keating if your struggling with neck and back pain, he treats his patients like a friend not just a number. I was suffering with an acute herniated disc in my lower back, Dr. Tom recommended that I see him three days a week. After a few weeks of adjustments and stretching in his office I can now sleep walk and drive comfortably. I can’t thank him enough and again I highly recommend Dr. Tom‘s chiropractic services.
For awhile, I had difficulty turning my neck and had increased tension and stiffness. Then one day I was in such much pain I could barely move my neck. Dr. Keating took the time with his evaluation and really listened to my symptoms. Within the week, I was able to turn my head from side to side. I also experienced headaches pretty regularly which have completely subsided since seeing Dr. Keating. He addressed symptoms that I thought was just normal everyday pains for your body. He addresses the overall health of your body which I never knew how important that was for everyday life. My energy levels and sleep had changed for the better.
I have seen many chiropractors over the years, and Dr. Tom is without a doubt one of the best I ever met. He provided me real time relief from my headache’s and neck pain. I recommend him highly to anyone in need.
