Dr. Faustino certainly has his chiropractic specialties—which range from subluxation correction to sports injury rehab—but he also takes a holistic approach to wellness. That means he treats the entire person and offers preventive treatments rather than focusing on symptoms only when they arise. For the past 25 years, he's relied on this foundation while adjusting spines. He and his trained staff at Family Chiropractic & Wellness Center tend to patients at all stages of life, from infancy to those already in their second robot bodies.
Degrees in chemistry, holistic spirituality, and theology decorate massage therapist Jonathan Nidock’s walls, complementing his 20 years of experience while alluding to his dual commitment to therapeutic bodywork and spiritual nurturing.
Jonathan pairs this commitment with a thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology to administer relaxing massages that call upon modalities such as myofascial release and neuromuscular therapy. Though each maintains a specific focus, Jonathan’s massages all work to stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation, dissipate tension, and curb chronic aches caused by wearing Kick Me signs made of concrete. Ideal for addressing uncertainties in the organs and nervous system, Jonathan’s holistic foot-reflexology treatments promote well-being through the application of thumb pressure to specific points on the feet, which are thought to correspond to various organs in the body.

Dr. Lenny Roberts is a champion of perseverance. After making it to the 1993 NCAA Division III National Football Championship, he underwent his sixth knee surgery and was forced to call it quits. But "quit" isn't exactly in Dr. Roberts's vocabulary. He forged ahead to pursue a career in amateur boxing and won a silver medal in the 1999 Georgia Games before conquering the San Diego marathon in 2006 and the Philadelphia Triathlon in 2008. After earning his chiropractic doctorate from Life University, Dr. Roberts fused sports with medicine in what some might consider a dream job: chiropractic consultant for the Philadelphia 76ers.
Today, Dr. Roberts treats patients with the same care that he would afford an NBA player or a baby who has been drafted into the NBA. His chiropractic services help to improve spinal biomechanics, implementing techniques ranging from spinal decompression to extremity adjustments for joints such as shoulders, ankles, and wrists. He also works closely with his staff to help relieve pains, induce relaxation, and rejuvenate the skin with massage therapy and beauty treatments.
When he isn't mastering endurance sports, healing NBA players, or diffusing suspicions that he is Batman, Dr. Roberts volunteers his time for Habitat for Humanity and Little League baseball.
