DeFabio Spine & Sports Rehab is now offering ACUPUNCTURE!

Welcome Amanda DeFabio Occhipinti, LAc. to Team DeFabio!

Amanda, daughter of Dr. Donald C. DeFabio, has joined the practice as a Board Certified Acupuncturist. Amanda has been a member of Team DeFabio since 2010. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa and Suma Cum Laude from Drew University in 2011, Amanda began her journey to become a holistic practitioner. She is a Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist with personal and professional interests in Sports Medicine.

Acupuncture is an effective form of medical treatment that has evolved over thousands of years to help individuals become and stay healthy. It is a safe, holistic method that promotes the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Acupuncture can enhance your immune system, physical health, emotional well being, improve our overall functioning, treat a variety of medical conditions, and is an excellent compliment to your Chiropractic care!

Dr. DeFabio welcomes Dr. Dijkstra to Team DeFabio!

We are very pleased to welcome Dr. D. Luke Dijkstra to DeFabio Chiropractic Spine & Sports Rehab.

Dr. Dijkstra was born in West Canada and has lived North America and Europe.   After graduating Suma Cum Laude from SCUHS in 2002, Dr. Dijkstra moved to the Netherlands where he worked with several practices before starting his own successful sports chiropractic oriented practice in The Hague.

His family missed North America and relocated to New Jersey where he joined the DeFabio Chiropractic and Sports Rehab team.
His professional and academic interests are cutting edge functional sports medicine and its application to treat and prevent injuries.

Dr. Dijkstra earned the International Chiropractic Sports Science Physician (ICSSP) and completed an MSc in Sports and Rehabilitation. He found these cutting edge techniques combined with a Gonstead chiropractic treatment were effective to return athletes to play sooner as well as for non-athletes to heal faster too!

We invite you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Dijkstr regarding optimization of your health or sports performance.

Dr. DeFabio named ANJC's Doctor of the Year!
