He completed another 110 hours of schooling to become a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician. He has a passion for athletics and he loves to treat and rehabilitate sports injuries to get patients back to their 100% as quickly as possible.
“I am also certified in Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, and Kinesio Taping. All of these are soft tissue therapies that address several structures around the joints but also the muscles and the nerves, as well as the interaction between these structures in the body. I am a certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner, so I see a lot of sports injuries - from athletes to weekend warriors - and what I've learned is that a lot of the injuries that our athletes present are due to repetitive motion injuries, a lot of the same injuries that people who sit at a desk or are on their feet all day will be susceptible to.”- Dr. Benjamin Dichiara
He currently resides in Mandeville with his wife Ashley, and their 2 children, Drake and Elise.
