One of six Chiropractors in his family, Dr. Abbate has been in practice for over 25 years. His son begins Chiropractic school this September and his daughter, a Biology major, also plans to pursue allied health. Dr. Abbate practices Applied Kinesiology, a chiropractic technique that utilizes muscle testing as a diagnostic tool. This approach views health to be a blend of structural, biochemical and bioenergetic factors. In the early 80’s, as a martial arts student, he became interested in kinesiology and healing arts and enrolled in Chiropractic College shortly thereafter. Today as a 6th degree Black Belt he has treated martial artists as well as performing artists from all over the world. Dr. Abbate is a sought after lecturer on topics of wellness and the wholistic approach to health care.
