Dr. Joanne Cancro, D.C., D. Ay.
Dr. Cancro’s approach to wellness starts with compassion, and by understanding there’s no formula — every treatment must be personalized. She’s your partner in health. She’s here to teach you how to take great care of yourself, and to get you involved in understanding your pain for future prevention.
Dr. Cancro uses her own practice of staying fit, whether it’s yoga, biking or swimming to guide her patients. She understands what could be going on in your life, and she plans accordingly for your visit. She also gets you thinking about what you should be doing next to continue your healing process. Every treatment is extremely thorough, and she uses a combination of techniques, so you can get back to your busy, active lifestyle. Her methods include spinal and extremity adjusting, and varied myofascial soft tissue techniques. And she recommends specific therapeutic exercises, diets and supplements, nutritional counseling, proper posture and even advice on the ergonomics in your office.
Every year, chiropractors are required to take continuing education courses. Dr. Cancro significantly exceeds the amount required because she truly cares about the wellness of her patients. She’s dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of the technology and the soft tissue techniques that help her patients — many of whom she’s been working with for years. It’s her expectation that her patients see major results after just one or two visits.
