Healing Hands Chiropractic – Dr. Crystal Venturino
Tampa, FL 33613
Chiropractic Physician / Certified Acupuncturist
Chiropractic medicine was not something I was aware of until I had a very significant moment that impacted my life forever. When I was pregnant with my first child, I had a significant amount of back pain that could not be resolved through modern medicine. I sought out care from non- other than my father-in-law who educated me on the system and purpose of chiropractic medicine. I was skeptical like most, but once I received treatment I was in awe of the relief of pain and stress I was able to receive. After I gave birth, it was then that my love for chiropractic began to flourish. I was born and raised in New York city by my parents Eddie and Lourdes Burgos. I am a proud Puerto Rican who grew up in a large family. It is no surprise that I wanted a family for my own. I met my amazing husband Nick and had 3 beautiful children. During all the busy schedules and motherly responsibilities I had with my children, I attended USF to receive my Bachelor of the Arts degree in Psychology while pregnant with my son. I Enrolled at the National University of Health Sciences the following year and began my journey into Chiropractic medicine. Throughout my education at NUHS, I have been trained in advanced techniques of spinal adjustments, prenatal adjustments, pediatric adjustments, nutritional and dietary counseling, and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. During my education at NUHS , I earned a certification in Acupuncture. I have adjusted my own children since the moment they were born because, as a chiropractor, I understand the importance of alignment and spinal health that is needed during the infant's first few moments after birth. My journey into chiropractic medicine has enlightened my overall perspective on how health care should be. Since I was four years old, I knew I always wanted to become a physician and help people. Being able to pursue my dreams and become the first physician in my family, is a true honor. I intend to hold my accountabilities as a physician to a higher standard, by treating people as if they are my own family. I want to be able to provide the best care and educate our community about the importance of spinal health.
