On Point Chiropractic, Sports Medicine and Integrated Wellness is operated by Dr. Mark Konopka. Dr. Mark grew up in Connecticut where he played numerous sports from a young age. Seeking relief from various injuries including back pain that he acquired from the numerous stresses he placed on himself during years of competition, Dr. Mark decided to see a chiropractor. This decision not only allowed him to continuously compete at a high level without pain, but also alleviated the intense headaches he was so used to experiencing as a child.
Since then Dr. Mark has been intrigued to better understand the workings of the human body in order to better help his fellow man through the safe and natural means. He graduated from Quinnipiac University with a Bachelor’s of Health Sciences and a Minor in Sociology. While at QU, Dr. Mark also worked as a Personal Trainer and a Chiropractic Assistant which allowed him to see the benefits of physical activity, chiropractic and sports medicine first hand.
He then continued his post-graduate studies at the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic. He performed his clinical rotations at the UB Health Clinics and Optimus Health Care. While at UBCC, Dr. Mark had the opportunity to accompany the UBCC sports council to the New York Ranger’s training facility in Greenburgh, NY where he assisted in screening the Blue Devils during their physicals.
During his time at UBCC, Dr. Mark completed and re-vamped the corporate health and wellness program, Be Health Tea, for Connecticut’s very own Bigelow Tea. That same year Bigelow was one of five companies in Fairfield County that won the Platinum Award for Healthy Work Place Initiatives. They have been bringing home the Platinum Award ever since!
Dr. Mark is passionate in helping everyday individuals, weekend warriors and professional athletes in living and maintaining a healthy and on point lifestyle. In his spare time he enjoys hiking, golfing, weight training, fishing, reading, rock climbing, running, biking and snowboarding as well as spending time with his family and friends.
Dr. Mark is an avid believer that the learning process never stops. He participates in ongoing educational opportunities in subjects such as functional rehabilitation, chiropractic adjusting techniques and nutrition to better treat his patients with the most up to date concepts and knowledge.
