Dr. Michael D’Avanzo graduated Life University in March of 1999 with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree. After graduation, he practiced with his mentor, Dr. Russell Freidman in Sandy Springs, Georgia who specialized in the NUCCA Chiropractic Method, a specific upper cervical technique.
In 2002, Dr. D’Avanzo returned to his New York City roots where he became an associate in Dr. Sean Cotter’s Queens, NY practice. He is one of only four NUCCA practitioners in New York State and is the only NUCCA practitioner in the 5 boroughs of New York City. In 2007, he started practicing in the Liberty Wellness & Chiro Brooklyn Heights’ office.
Currently, with the recent expansion of Liberty Wellness and Chiro to the Upper Eastside, our newest state of the art wellness facility, Dr. D’Avanzo has been given the responsibility of managing this practice. Michael is excited to bring the NUCCA procedure to Liberty Wellness and Chiro as it complements Dr. Cotters’ wellness based philosophy.
Dr. D’Avanzo is also skilled in traditional chiropractic techniques such as diversified adjusting, Cox flexion-distraction, manual muscle release and implementation of corrective exercises for painful and posture related conditions. He is currently a member of the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association.
In addition to his love for chiropractic and caring of people, his other interests include neurology, history, economics and foreign currency exchange trading.
