At Vision Quest Spine & Sport Clinic, clients’ aches and pains are treated by a two-person team of Doctor of Chiropractic Dino Del Mastro—who is also a sports therapist—and massage therapist Hannah. They pool their skills to relieve neck and back pain caused by chronic activities, sports injuries, and traumatic events. Both chiropractor and massage therapist are lifelong athletes, so they’re well familiar with the lasting damage an injury can inflict on the body if it never properly heals. With this in mind, they spend their time working to ensure that their clients’ spines and musculature recover and stay strong and secure. Dr. Del Mastro uses spinal adjustment to correct and prevent imbalances within backs that can exacerbate problems throughout the body. Hannah focuses her massage therapy on releasing pain from deep within muscles to improve sports performance and allow her athletic clients the range of movement necessary to stretch into the shape of a football.
