Welcome to Active Life Chiropractic!

Located in the heart of Newburyport, Dr. Adam Palombo at Active Life Chiropractic is dedicated to helping you feel better by helping muscular and skeletal pain disappear. Dr. Adam Palombo's examination procedures span the entire chiropractic and manual therapies spectrum. Treatment plans often combine chiropractic, manual therapy, and exercise rehabilitation in order to deliver results.

Patients seeking treatment at Active Life Chiropractic receive only the finest quality care stemming from the integration of clinical expertise with the latest science. Initially, a movement-based assessment is used in order to generate a specific diagnosis for the source of your symptoms. Treatment for your immediate discomfort is dictated by your individual diagnosis and may involve traditional chiropractic techniques in addition to manual therapy methods such as muscle therapy and scar tissue mobilization. Ultimately, a movement-based assessment will identify areas, such as the feet or the hips, that place unnecessary strain on the region of your complaint. Treatment of these areas identifies and corrects factors that generated your pain and may cause them to persist. This approach identifies and addresses all facets of care and gives you the tools that you need to return to your normal activities and exercise as soon as possible.
