Dr. Landon Benedetti, Chiropractor
Dr. Landon Benedetti is a board-certified chiropractor with additional board certification in physiotherapy, providing hands-on full spine and extremity adjustments. Before moving to Loudoun County, he practiced in a family focused chiropractic clinic in Pittsburgh, PA. Dr. Benedetti discovered chiropractic after a shoulder injury in high school while playing baseball. Not wanting to have medications at a young age, he visited a chiropractor where he became fascinated by the treatment and how much relief he received. He adamantly wanted to learn how the body works and how to help people receive the same great experience he did. Dr. Benedetti pursued his passion for chiropractic, graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. Dr. Benedetti resides in the beautiful town of Leesburg and enjoys playing hockey, basketball, hiking and biking. He is ecstatic to bring his knowledge and passion for helping others to the wonderful people of Loudoun County!
Dr. Landon Benedetti holds true to the belief that our body is designed for motion and when joints are not moving properly, especially the spinal joints, it can cause havoc on the body. Through everyday habits such as texting, extensive computer use, driving, working out, etc. our joints can become misaligned causing pain and dysfunction. Restoring motion to these joints with a specific gentle, hands-on adjustment, relieves this dysfunction allowing the spine to move correctly, unlocking our body’s natural ability to heal and function properly.
Nutrition also plays a large role in our health. Especially in today’s fast paced world, proper nutrition can be neglected, leaving your body unable to maintain its many vital systems, further leaving us susceptible to illness and/or injury. Nutritional advice, as well as whole food supplementation can gladly be addressed during your visit.
