A Nebraska native, growing up in Wilber, NE. Completed his undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He then received his Radiologistic Technology degree, with highest honors working at Bryan Memorial Hospital before graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Cum Laude in 1984. Following his graduation he moved to Grand Island and has been practicing here ever since. Dr. Po specializes in the Gonstead System of Chiropractic. Gonstead is a system of Chiropractic that has been tested time, and time again proving itself the “Gold Standard” of Chiropractic. Dr. Po has attained Diplomat (1987) and Fellow (1997) status within his field.
Lecturer/Teacher Dr. Po was asked to join the Gonstead Seminars in 1999 by his mentor Dr. Alex W. Cox. He is now one of 3 Lead Instructors with the Gonstead Seminar. This requires Dr. Po to travel 1-2 times per month teaching other Chiropractors this distinct and complex system of Chiropractic. Dr. Po’s teaching schedule takes him from within the USA to worldwide locations including Australia, Japan, England, Spain, Denmark , Norway, France, Brazil, Mexico, Canada and an ever expanding list of countries wanting the education of the Gonstead Seminar Instructors.
Personal Dr. Po has been married to his wife Pam since 1984. They have 3 children—AJ, Alyssa & Austan. They also have 3 Grandchildren—Traestan, Ellie & Peyton. AJ attended Creighton Medical School and is a practicing Urologist. Alyssa is a Certified Massage Therapist who practices in Phoenix, AZ. Austan is a Gonstead Chiropractor who graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic and has since joined POMAJZL Chiropractic in March of 2018.
Dr. Austan R. Pomajzl : Dr. Austan is a graduate of Grand Island Northwest, Wayne State College and Palmer College of Chiropractic. He was inspired to pursue chiropractic as a profession by seeing how far reaching it was in his, and his family’s lives. From his son’s first adjustment at just minutes old, to his grandparents’ at 90 plus years, as long as someone has a spine and a nervous system, chiropractic works! Along with a full-class load at Palmer, Dr. Austan wanted more and spent 300+ hours specializing in the Gonstead technique of analysis and specific hands on chiropractic adjusting.
Athlete: Dr. Austan is an accomplished athlete. Most notably, he earned four straight All-NSIC honors and one DII All-American year as a safety at Wayne State College. He ended his career at Wayne State as only the 10th player to make over 300 tackles in school history and the first to do it as a defensive back. He is still currently in the top 10 in career tackles with 317. After football, Dr. Austan knew he wanted to stay involved in athletics and chiropractic is his way to do that. He attributed his ability to stay on the field (having never missed a start in his 4 years at WSC with 48 consecutive starts) and in the game, in large, to the benefits of chiropractic. Now he has the ability to help other athletes!
Personal: Family is very important to Dr. Austan. He was raised in a very close knit family here in Grand Island, and a family that was very healthcare oriented. His mother, Pam, was a respiratory therapist in Lincoln and Grand Island while his father, Dr. Po, has been a practicing chiropractor for 30+ years and still cookin’. He has an older brother that is a practicing urologist and his sister is a practicing massage therapist in Phoenix, Arizona. When not at work Dr. Austan loves to spend his time with his girlfriend Hannah, or shoot some hoops with his son Traestan, and last but not least wrestle around with his dog Butkus. Aside from the family life, Dr. Austan is still very active and loves competition whether it is in the weight room, on the golf course, or a game of tic-tac-toe.
POMAJZL Chiropractic strives to provide the community of Grand Island and surrounding areas with honest and effective healthcare.
