I started my chiropractic career with one goal – to make you feel better. And it comes from a place of understanding. My name is Andrew Sinclair and I’m a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine. The story behind becoming a chiropractor is very personal and special to me. In 1999, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune kidney disease. To be perfectly honest, I thought my life was over. That’s when I started to explore the world of alternative and natural medicine. I was working a very regular and respectable job as a union sheet metal worker. When I got sick, I was referred to Dr. Janice Piro, DC, DABCI. She helped me get better and see the world through different eyes. She ultimately inspired me to go into chiropractic medicine.
Another meaningful part of this is that I’ve been a competitive Country Western and West Coast Swing dancer for years. It’s a fun and competitive sport– but there’s a price to pay and it’s usually with your body from natural wear and tear. Much of my career has focused on helping professional dancers resolve their aches and pains so they can keep doing what they love most. Dancing.
In terms of education, I’ve trained in musculoskeletal concerns and internal disorders. I earned my degree from Western States University in Portland, Oregon. While I trained out West, I came home to Florida to treat in 2010. I believe in always learning new things and I’m continuing to work toward completing my Diplomate of the American Board of Chiropractic Internists (DABCI) certification. I look forward to treating you based on what you need and what’s special about you.
