Chiropractor | Dr. Del Monte | Philadelphia PA | Acupuncture

Chiropractor, Holistic, Therapy, Massage in Philly, PADr. Del Monte attended Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in English. During her undergraduate studies, she injured her low back and began treatment with a chiropractor. During her recovery from a foot surgery in 2000, she tried acupuncture and experienced a dramatic reduction in her foot pain. Based on her positive personal experience with chiropractic care and acupuncture, she promised herself that if the opportunity ever arose for her to study the art of chiropractic care or acupuncture, she she would take it.

 

Dr. Del Monte spent the next several years working in the Pharmaceutical Industry. Soon after the tragic events of September 11, 2001 she decided it was time to make a change in her life and her career. She finally took the plunge and enrolled in New York Chiropractic College to learn the art of chiropractic care.

 

“I realized that I liked my job, but I didn’t wake up excited to go to work. So I asked myself, “Of all the things to which I had experienced, what had improved the quality of my life the most?” The answer came to me immediately … chiropractic! It was intimidating at first to make such a big change career-wise. But there’s nothing about it that I would do differently.”

 

While attending classes as a chiropractic student, she enrolled in the Acupuncture program, completing 9 years of graduate studies in just 4 years. She earned a Doctorate of Chiropractic and a Master’s of Science in Acupuncture, and relocated back to the Philadelphia region, where she enjoys the company of her family.

 

Dr. Del Monte has completed post-doctoral studies in Pathology of the Trauma Patient, Crash Dynamics and Diagnostic Imaging Protocols. She continues to work on continuing her education to ensure that her patients always receive the latest, best care available.
