Antonio Marotta originally intended to become a psychologist. After working in a group home for the mentally ill, though, he developed an idea that the patients' medications were often just masking, rather than treating, the cause of their problems. Wanting to get away from a single-minded medical approach, Marotta made the move to chiropractic, which he believes emphasizes a holistic view of wellness and offers more opportunities for him to introduce people to his favorite model skeleton.
Now, the doctor of chiropractic's main focus is correcting misalignments, a significant cause of pain and other bodily issues, and helping clients avoid the movements that add up to massive discomfort. Marotta's primary treatment is high-velocity, low-amplitude adjustment—the classic back cracking—though he can tailor his techniques for those who want gentler alignments. These adjustments are incorporated into multifaceted treatment plans that can also include spinal-decompression therapy, massages, and even exercises that help golfers improve their swing mechanics to prevent injury. Marotta also manages clients' overall well-being by guiding them through detoxifying weight-loss plans and suggesting nutritional supplements.
