About Dr. John Minardi

John Minardi has been involved in martial arts since the age of 12, and competed at the highest level. John became involved with chiropractic following a major injury that occurred during a martial arts match. At a very young age, John was informed, by several members of the medical community that he would never compete again. In addition, John was told that he should consider himself fortunate if he ever walked normally again. Unable to accept this grim future, John sought the help of a Chiropractor. Within six months of treatment, John was walking, running and training in martial arts again. Within a year, John was competing at a world class level. Experiencing first-hand how Chiropractic changed his life, John was determined to become a Chiropractor and help others.
