Dr. Matt Maggio is one of the leading Integrative Diagnosis Providers, trained in manual and instrument adhesion release. Owner of Peak Performance Sports Therapy in St. Petersburg, Florida, he treats patients ranging from professional athletes to weekend warriors and everyday people. Matt is renowned for his no nonsense approach to patient education and care.
During his playing time on the St. John Fisher College Football team, Matt suffered a significant low back injury while training. He was passed around the medical system and told he would no longer be able to play. During his search for a resolution for the injury he found a doctor trained in soft tissue treatment. This allowed him to return to the field for his senior season, and he earned all-conference honors.
Matt realised his true calling in life was helping people who were injured. He has a doctorate from New York Chiropractic College, but definitely doesn’t fit the classic chiropractormold. His practice is based on biomechanicswith the focus on soft tissue injuries. Matt hasn’t performed a manipulation in years.
Matt truly believes that successful resolution of injuries and pain has a pretty lousy outcome in our current medical model. He notes patients don’t get what they deserve and often feel like they just have to live with the problem they have. Injuries and pain are often diagnosed and treated in the wrong way, and this leads to a lot of unnecessary pain and suffering.
Matt’s goal is for every person suffering through an injury to become better informed and have access to the correct treatment for their problem.
