I walked into Dr. Rob’s office with a laundry list of issues: lower back pain, occasional back spasms that would put me out of commission for days at a time, sore hips/neck/shoulders, digestive issues, acne, low energy, and insomnia. With physical therapy exercises, regulating adrenal function and prescribing a quick dietary cleanse to reboot the system, all of these issues magically disappeared. He didn’t simply address problem areas – he assessed the entire body to determine the source of each issue. I’ve eliminated my monthly physical therapy, massage and acupuncture appointments, and now only visit him on my own cadence for “personal maintenance. Beyond being a miracle worker, his humor, empathy and patience are unparalleled – I enjoy each appointment and always look forward to the next one.

I first came to Dr. D’Aquila after a car accident. I came on the recommendation of a friend, almost reluctantly — I admit that I was one of those people who totally mistrusted chiropractors. Dr. D’Aquila’s methodology, however, has totally changed my opinion. He uses chiropractic and applied kinesiology, in concert with several other methods, to listen to the body itself, following the principles that the body knows how to correct itself, if given the proper opportunity. Not only was Dr. D’Aquila able to help mend several problems cause by the accident, which the orthopedist had basically written off, but he immediately located some nutritional and mineral imbalances that were also affecting my health. Seeing Dr. D’Aquila has turned into a fascinating journey in which we have discovered and addressed, together, some of the foundational problems that are affecting my health, not only physical but, to my surprise, mental and emotional, too. It has proved a revolutionary approach for me and has allowed greater health to happen naturally, from within. I recommend him to almost every single friend of mine who voices a complaint about their health, whether serious or minor.

I’m an active guy. My music has me on the road 200 plus days a year, so energy has to be high in supply. The necessity for high energy has led me to stop or curb my personal use of most chemicals typical to a “rock n’ roll” lifestyle already, so you can guess how dedicated I am to keeping myself in fighting mode. In October of 2009, I started experiencing numerous, seemingly unrelated, symptoms like chest pains, uncontrollable shaking, oral bleeding and extreme fatigue-needing up to 20 hours of sleep a day, just to function. Not knowing what to do, and with a full year of music work on my horizon, I called Dr. D’Aquila. Through a battery of tests, trial and error and patience, Dr. Rob and I gleaned that my problems were rooted in nutrition (and not the chronic illnesses I’d self-diagnosed). Within a week, I was feeling a marked improvement in my energy, and within the first month, the symptoms that brought me to Dr. Rob in the first place had all but disappeared. I don’t know where I’d be right now without Dr. Rob’s knowledge and willingness to experiment. Thank you.
