Dr. DeSantis specializes in Postural Correction. After years of experience, he has come to the conclusion that correcting posture through manipulation of the spine, along with corrective exercises, relieves most pain. "Structure Dictates Function" is Dr. DeSantis' motto.

Full Body Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic in simple terms means “effective use of the hands”. Our treatment methods include removing the subluxation complex and other fixations found at all the joints of the musculoskeletal system. We also focus and encourage active patient lifestyle, by addressing joint fixations in the extremities as well as in the spine.
We utilize a wide range of treatments when delivering this type of health care. This is a mixture of techniques, both at the spine and the extremities. We have learned that the diversified approach allows us to customize treatments for best results for each patient rather than universally perform one particular method of care.
Our techniques include:
- Full Spine Diversified Adjustments by Hand
- Soft Tissue (Massage) Therapy – Back, Neck and Foot
- Electrical Acu-Point Stimulation
- Exercise Instruction
Weight training, exercise and stretching techniques related to chiropractic and physical therapy help support an active and healthy lifestyle.
Injury and trauma result from accidents, surgery, postural problems, repetitive strain and any other physically compromising situations. In order to get the most effective and efficient results for each patient, a custom tailored exercise routine may be addressed which can be incorporated into their normal everyday lifestyle. This optimizes the speed of rehabilitation and encourages a healthy lifestyle.
In order to achieve a desired result, the body needs to perform activities that it is not used to performing or not strong enough to perform. By targeting weak areas, by both fitness and daily activity, the body will respond most rapidly and with the best results.
At Fitness Chiropractic we specialize in helping patients recover from injury while continuing to progress in other aspects of fitness to achieve their goals. The benefits of this treatment method are two-fold. One, it makes the therapy more effective, and two, it requires less treatment and promotes quicker healing. This is extremely important when a person wants to live an active lifestyle with no limitations.
