Dr. Danielle Damelio graduated Magna Cum Laude from both Rutgers University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, and Los Angeles College of Chiropractic with her clinical Doctorate degree. A background as both a competitive gymnast and track athlete laid the foundation for her interest in sports injury. She has established herself as an expert in soft tissue sports injury treatment and prevention, with a concentration on functional muscular balance in athletes, ergonomics and posture. This focus distinguishes Dr. Danielle from chiropractors who traditionally focus on the skeletal system and enables her to see and treat a larger array of injuries.
Dr. Danielle did an externship in sports injury under Dr. Timothy Brown, where she became a specialist in SPRT Kinesiotaping. Dr. Damelio is one of only a few chiropractors in the state trained in SPRT taping.
She holds advanced certifications in the following techniques: Functional Movement Screen (FMS), Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Neurokinetic Therapy (NKT), and Mulligan Mobilization with Movement.
Dr. Damelio is also an active member of the Association of New Jersey Chiropractors Sports Council. She volunteers for such organizations as the Central Jersey Road Runners Club, New Jersey Tae Kwon Do and New Jersey Track & Field.
She has been on the medical team at such events as the Mountain Dew Tour, Levels 9 and 10 NJ State Gymnastics Championships, the USGA Senior Amateur Championship, the New Jersey Triathlon, the New York City Marathon, the California Aids Ride, and the Avon Breast Cancer Walk, and served on the medical staff for Team Jamaica at the Penn Relays Track & Field.
Dr. Danielle has had the pleasure of working with athletes from the Washington Redskins, the New Jersey Devils and WTA (tennis), as well as national champion and Olympic Level track athletes. She is currently working with the Rutgers Women’s Gymnastics Team.
