Before Dr. Rocchio became a Chiropractor, he was a chiropractic patient. “My Chiropractic experience started back in the early 90’s when I suffered a sports injury that was projected to be a season ending injury until I saw a Chiropractor. The Chiropractor had me back playing hockey again within two weeks!” “Since being a Chiropractic patient, it has helped me with various health issues ranging from injuries, aches and pains to relieving headaches and regulating my digestion!” Dr. Rocchio is dedicated to educating as many people as possible about the extensive health benefits of proper Chiropractic care, including regular Chiropractic check-ups. He has an undeniable passion for caring for infants and children, allowing them to express their full life potential starting at a young age.
