Chiropractic allowed me to run again! Back in 1981, I was a college student and I loved long distance running. I wasn’t very fast, but running was a great source of joy and helped me survive the high stress of school. I suddenly developed severe hip pain and right leg pain. 

I couldn’t even run around the block. My doctor prescribed pain killers and muscle relaxers. I even spent hundreds of dollars on custom shoe supports, but nothing was helping! I was devastated and scared that my running days were over for good. But there’s more.

A friend of mine convinced me to give a chiropractor a try. The chiropractor did an exam, took some films, and then “adjusted” my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt good. I got relief, and I could run again. That’s when I told my family and friends I was changing careers and heading for chiropractic school myself. They said it was a “fool stunt,” that I was crazy to spend the time and money. But, I never looked back. It was the best decision I ever made!

Life After Chiropractic College

I graduated from Western States Chiropractic College in 1986, and promptly moved back to Texas (I was born and raised in Houston, TX.) and opened Pecan Valley Chiropractic. I have additional training in spinal injury and trauma, postgraduate certification in Chiropractic Rehabilitation, and I am a designated doctor for Texas Workers Compensation.

I have written numerous articles, and am the author of several books including “What You Should Know before Going to a Chiropractor”, and have taught medical students and therapists as far away as Ethiopia. I am a member of the Texas Chiropractic Association and the American Chiropractic Association.

On a personal note, I am happily married and have three beautiful children. I still love running (not so long distance anymore), golf and other physical exercise. I enjoy and love what I do for a living and have been blessed to be part of so many people’s lives. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me directly at (210) 359-9100. I would be happy to talk to you any time, and look forward to meeting you.

Austin Smiciklas D.C.

My Chiropractic journey started during my first year of college at the University of Texas – San Antonio. I started to have neck pain a few months into college and I did my best to find relief, but nothing seemed to help. I decided to give Chiropractic a try, and I was truly amazed at how much it helped.

After the first few visits, my neck pain felt much better, and after completing my treatment plan, my neck pain was a thing of the past! I knew then what I wanted to do with my future. I graduated from the University of Western States Chiropractic Program in 2023 and now I can help people find relief and achieve their wellness goals.

I grew up in New Braunfels, TX, and I enjoy swimming, going on hikes, and spending time with my family. I am a huge sports fan, and my favorite teams are the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Cowboys. I’m recently married and looking forward to living and raising a family here in beautiful San Antonio.

I feel so fortunate to have found a home here at Pecan Valley Chiropractic and work side-by-side with Dr. Cudnik and the amazing team here. It is an honor and a privilege to serve this community and continue the legacy of offering the highest quality of Chiropractic care available.

Yours in Health,
Austin Smiciklas, D.C.
