Chiropractor Ben Mahalko D.C., Owner of Mahalko Family Chiropractic
Dr. Ben Mahalko is a 2006 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic. Dr. Ben first experienced chiropractic as a 16 year old with severe low back pain while growing up on his family’s dairy farm doing heavy labor and playing hard hitting sports. “I remember my first visit to a chiropractor. I was lying on the floor writhing in pain after unloading hay bales all day long with such severe low back pain that I could not get up off the floor without lightning bolts slamming through my low back and legs. After two days of suffering, I finally went to the chiropractor and after one visit, he got me standing and walking without pain and 100% back to being a kid again after just a few more visits. I chose to become a chiropractor so I could do the same for other people and it was the best decision I ever made.”
Dr. Ben helps many patients in the Germantown, Menomonee Falls, and greater Milwaukee area with neck pain and back pain, seeing people with pulled muscles, sprains, and pinched nerves, all the way to bigger problems such as bulging discs, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease to regain function and live a better, happier, and more vibrant life. Helping people is his passion.
See Dr. Ben for a second opinion before undergoing any joint surgery. He helps many people with shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, and foot pain by restoring proper function to joints with chiropractic care.
Dr. Ben lives in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin with his daughter Kate, who he is very proud of and wrestles with as often as possible.
