Meet Dr. Frank Giampietro

Realizing the Power of Chiropractic

While in high school and college, Dr. Frank was heavily involved in sports. He saw friends or teammates get injured whose only choices were to wait it out, take drugs or have surgery. “I thought there had to be other options. Being a physician was my ultimate goal, and chiropractic was a drugless, nonsurgical way to get to the root of the problem and fix it.”

When Dr. Frank was injured playing hockey, he thought it was the perfect time to try out the profession he was considering going into. He was able to find out what was wrong and get the results he’d hoped for, returning quickly to the game.

Natural Healing Expertise

To become a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Frank attended National College of Chiropractic in Lombard, Illinois. There, he learned about the art and science of chiropractic care and how to deliver an effective adjustment with a gentle touch. “We were taught to keep the patient’s comfort level in mind at all times. That sticks with me to this day.”

In nearly 30 years of practice, Dr. Frank has worked with a range of people, from those with everyday types of pain to professional athletes looking to return from injury or perform at their best. Thanks to his chiropractic education, he trained rigorously in diagnostics, techniques and more. He works with many members of the medical community in our area to inform them about the benefits of chiropractic for their patients or to co-manage cases.

There are several additional qualifications Dr. Frank holds:

  •  Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician®
  •  Certified laser therapy practitioner
  •  Certified in spinal decompression
  •  Certified in Graston Technique
  •  Certified ProAdjuster doctor

Additionally, he is a member of the American Chiropractic Association and the Florida Chiropractic Association.

Chiropractic Education and Training

Why Chiropractic?

Dr. Calderone first experienced the benefits and healing of chiropractic care at the age of 15, when he was diagnosed with a bilateral spondylolysis at the level of his L5 vertebra. At the time he was playing varsity baseball at South Fork High School in Stuart, Florida and was informed that this was a potentially career ending injury. He credits chiropractic care to not only saving his baseball career, but also keeping him healthy on the field for years to come. His experience as a patient of chiropractic drove him to become a Doctor of Chiropractic.
