Stuart Chiropractor :: Dr. Frank Giampietro
"Personally, I didn’t experience a miracle, but I’ve seen them."
Even after 20 years, chiropractic continues to amaze me with dramatic patient results, often when other types of care have failed.
Sports, Athletes and Chiropractic
I have been practicing on the Treasure Coast for more than 15 years. I’m a certified sports chiropractor and also completed the extensive Diplomate program in Chiropractic Sports Medicine. In addition, I have extensive training and field experience in the evaluation and management of athletes and athletic injuries. It is my goal to bring this experience and training to all patients, regardless of their condition or injury.
During my years as a high school and college athlete, I saw many teammates go down with various injuries. Frequently, these injuries required the athlete to rest, take medication and sometimes undergo surgery. Often, especially back in the 1980s, surgery could be career ending. It was then that I began seeing the benefits of chiropractic care. As an athlete, the drugless and nonsurgical approach of chiropractic appealed to me. Once I decided on a career in health care, I chose chiropractic for its’ direct approach to addressing the cause of one’s problem.
A Chiropractic Education
I graduated from the National College of Chiropractic, now the National University of Health Sciences. I chose National for its exceptionally high standards and for the multi-discipline training they provided. National taught that chiropractic is a vital and successful contributor to the health care team, but it does not stand alone. Cooperation among all branches of health care is essential, for the good of the patient.
The National College of Chiropractic formed the basis for my practice philosophy, which is: The patient is at the center of all decisions regarding treatment, diagnostic testing and referrals.
On a Personal Note…
My wife Lynn and I have a “yours , mine and ours” family of five children. Lynn’s 2 children, Billy and Michele and my 2 children, Ashley and Domenick along with our son, Frankie. Away from the practice, I enjoy exercise, boating, fishing, golf, tennis and spending time with the family.
Personally, my health habits have always been best described as “moderation”. We eat what would be considered a very healthy diet, but not an overly strict or difficult diet. We strive to make “more better choices” and less bad ones. As a family, we exercise regularly and get regular chiropractic care as part of a wellness/preventive approach.
Over the years, our practice has helped thousands of patients through chiropractic and related alternative treatments. I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and learn how we may be of service to you.
