“I am also certified in Integrative Dry Needling, Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, and Kinesio Taping. All of these are soft tissue therapies that address several structures including the joints, muscles and nerves, as well as the interaction between these structures in the body.
As a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner, I see a lot of sports injuries - from athletes to weekend warriors - and what I've learned is that many injuries are due to repetitive motion injuries. Interestingly, people who sit at a desk or are on their feet all day are susceptible to many of the same injuries.”- Dr. Benjamin Dichiara
