LCSR_DR2.jpgLa Ruffa Chiropractic & Sports Rehab was founded by Dr. August La Ruffa, a trusted family chiropractic practitioner since 1992. Dr. La Ruffa emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness through integrated modalities.

La Ruffa Chiropractic & Sports Rehab is family oriented, treating people of all age groups. The focus of the practice is treating people suffering from neuromuscular disorders, i.e. sports injuries, rotator cuff injuries, headaches, back and neck pain, as well as problems from auto or work-related injuries.
