Business Description: Dr. Conforti has been been providing quality chiropractic and spinal rehabilitative care since 1998. Practicing within the Chiropractic Rehab & Neurology Center in Dubuque, Iowa, our primary goal is to exceed your expectations-combining the skill and expertise that spans the entire chiropractic and wellness spectrum. We are a holistic wellness center, caring for individuals from newborns to older adults. Dr. Conforti believes in continuing post-graduate education. He is certified in Pettibon Spinal Biomechanics, having instructed both students and practicing physicians in this specialized technique/system. Additionally, he is a Board Eligible Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP), as well as being a certified instructor in Basic Life Support (BLS) for the Professional Rescuer through the American Heart Association (AHA). Presently, Dr. Conforti is pursuing certifications in Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) and Functional Medicine through the Functional Medicine University. Most individuals today are looking for something different to address their healthcare needs, both now and moving into the future. Dr. Conforti has that 'certain something', combining neuromusculoskeletal assessment via the Pettibon System along with Functional Medicine. This is the future in healthcare! It seeks to identify and address the root cause of disease, viewing the body as one integrated system, NOT a collection of independant organs divided up by medical specialties. Unlike conventional medicine, treatments are personalized based upon the individuals unique structural and biological needs. No two people are alike, so why would they receive the same treatment? Treatment must be matched to the cause, NOT the disease. This functional approach can likely find a solution to your healthcare problems that other physicians either cannot figure out, or are simply prescribing medications to treat the symptoms. Dr. Conforti has been able to help patients heal from conditions such as Thyroid and Adrenal issues, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hormonal Imbalances, Psoriatic Arthritis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, chronic headaches and Migraine utilizing these principles. He also accepts cases of individuals who have been injured in automobile and work related accidents. Angie's List members are eligible for a free initial consultation as well as $10.00 off their initial examination.
