Dr. Darlene Albert-Walode is an experienced Board-Certified Chiropractor who has been in private practice serving families of Wayne and the surrounding communities for over 25 years. Dr. Walode recently merged her practice with Advanced Center for Injury and Wellness Care and is excited to be able to work together with Dr. Anthony Fava as part of his talented and caring team of chiropractic physicians, physical therapists, acupuncturist, and chiropractic assistants. Dr. Walode received her Doctorate degree in 1989 from New York Chiropractic College, is certified by The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and licensed by the New Jersey State Board of Chiropractic Examiners. Dr. Walode is a long- standing member of the Association of New Jersey Chiropractors and focuses much of her continuing education in the field of nutrition and nutritional supplementation. As a Wellness Practitioner, Dr. Walode believes that chronic illness is one of the greatest threats to our health, quality of life, and our lifespan. There is now staggering evidence that chronic illness is a lifestyle issue. Many people live with excess weight gain causing stress and pain in their spine resulting in chronic neck and low back conditions as well as other illnesses. Dr. Walode developed a lifestyle program that has helped to change the health and wellness of hundreds of patients in our community. Dr. Walode evaluates each person’s whole body to detect imbalances in the spinal column and uses a gentle and effective hands on approach to help correct and restore balance of the nervous system. She also utilizes an instrument that offers gentle and effective chiropractic adjustments besides cold laser which dramatically aids in reducing inflammation. Dr. Walode’s patients range from infants with chronic ear infections or colic, young children and teens that are active in sports caring for injuries or maintaining their body to attain peak performance, adults suffering with neck and low back pain from long hours working at a computer, and even caring for seniors up to nearly 100 years old that wish to live their lives without limits, remain independent and physically active! Dr. Walode has a passion for educating her patients and has lectured extensively in area corporations and community organizations about health and wellness. Dr. Walode looks forward to serving you as part of our team of health care providers! Dr. Walode resides in Wayne together with her husband Scott and they enjoy spending time together with their expanding family of four adult children and their two standard poodle therapy dogs! She also enjoys golfing, cooking and entertaining family and friends.
