Andrew Fiola, D.C.,Sports Chiropractor, A.R.T., TPI

The game of golf is an asymmetrical sport which inherently creates imbalances in the body. Dr. Fiola’s evaluation process is a specialized approach to detecting asymmetries, dysfunction and compensation patterns. In all athletes where there is compensation, it is not a matter of if there will be an injury, it is simply a matter of when. 

Andrew mentored under Dr. Troy van Biezen, who travels with several of the top PGA players on tour.  Golf quickly became a specialty niche for Dr. Fiola and allowed him to gain extensive experience working on and with some of the bigger names on tour. Dr. Fiola provides clients the all-inclusive approach to their golf game, typically reserved only for PGA professionals. He combines his expertise with his experience as a collegiate athlete to provide athletes with the most comprehensive and integrated approach to assessing, detecting and correcting dysfunctional movements that create injuries and swing faults. Dr. Fiola's understanding of the golf swing and how it relates to the body allows him to assist players in performing efficient and powerful swings, while minimizing risk of injury.
