Chiropractic Care

DeStefano Chiropractic and Associates is a group of chiropractic physicians focusing on muscle and joint injuries.  They treat a wide variety of patients ranging from pre and post surgical candidates, athletes, elderly, or postural imbalances. After a thorough functional and bio mechanical evaluation they determine how to correct the injuries through manual soft tissue treatment, joint manipulation, and instruct on home exercise and stretch techniques to prevent future damage and empower the patient to take control of their health.  They treat using Active Release Technique (A.R.T.), Facilitated Active Stretch Technique (F.A.S.T.) and chiropractic manipulations in order to reduce tension/adhesion in the muscles and restore proper movement and function.  If a patient is determined to not be a candidate for such treatment, DeStefano Chiropractic and Associates works closely with doctors from LA PALESTRA and the Hospital for Special Surgeries in order to make sure their patients receive the very best and most appropriate treatment.  Dr. Robert DeStefano is the team chiropractor for the NY Football Giants, co-author of NY Times bestseller, Muscle Medicine, and treats other athletes from various New York professional sports teams.
