Dr Anthony DeSano ::  Woodhaven Chiropractor

Health and Wellness Expert

Health and wellness expert Dr. Anthony S. DeSano initially experienced chiropractic’s extraordinary healing benefits when he was just 13 years old. He says, ” I remember my first adjustment as if it were yesterday. Multiple falls from bicycles and playground injuries left me with headaches and neck tension. I can picture myself repeatedly tilting my head back and to the side to relieve the stress. My family was very concerned and it was really getting in the way of my schoolwork. My parents took me to see Dr. David Bass who after a thorough examination blessed me with my first adjustment. After just one adjustment my parents and I were convinced that chiropractic was going to be my lifesaver. I have been a chiropractic patient ever since and I knew that I would be a chiropractor one day helping others restore their quality of life and reaching their peak potentials.”

He attended Chaminade High School in Mineola, NY then moved on to Stony Brook University where he completed his pre-chiropractic education. He was then accepted at New York Chiropractic College at the young age of 20. He graduated in less than 3 ½ years and was licensed as a D.C., Doctor of Chiropractic at 23 years old. He then began private practice and eventually returned to school to earn his M.D. degree with honors. “While both degrees give me a unique perspective I have grown to understand that the true path to health, wellness and longevity is the chiropractic path.
