Luke Pietrantone

I am dedicated to helping my patient improve their health as quickly and completely as possible. The best results come when the doctor fits the treatment to the patient needs rather than treating everybody with the same technique.

This idea has led me to a multidisciplinary approach to improving patient’s health incorporating chiropractic, applied kinesiology (AK), nutrition, emotional release, cranial techniques, muscle balancing, soft tissue release and rehabilitative exercise. As a doctor the hardest part is determining which therapy is the most appropriate. This is where AK shines. Through AK muscle testing, the body reveals which therapy it will respond to best. Cutting through the clutter of the symptoms a patient may present with, allows for quicker results.

My ideal patient wants to use a healthcare approach without the use of drugs, take an active role in their health, and look to avoid medical interventions. Improving the body’s ability to function helps all types of patients. Athletes notice improved performance and quicker recovery and those with chronic health problems often find the first relief in years. For more information, visit my website or my blog.


Michelle Pietrantone

Dr. Michelle is a Buffalo native who spent the last twelve years in Northern Virginia serving the birth community. Dr. Michelle has had the joy of working exclusively with pregnant women (and their babies) for the last seven years helping women achieve the birth they are dreaming of.

Dr. Michelle believes strongly in the strength of women and their ability to deliver naturally. It is her passion to empower women with the knowledge they need to have a peaceful pregnancy, beautiful birth and the post partum experience that they desire. For more on Dr. Michelle visit her website or read her blog.

Her unique practice allows for time to pay special attention to the muscles and ligaments of the pelvis and low back that support the uterus, pelvis, tailbone, and low back. Chiropractic care during pregnancy identifies and removes mechanical strain from the spine and pelvis, allowing for a more comfortable pregnancy and peaceful birth.
