Cianci, D.C. an area leader in chiropractic care serving Montgomery County in Pennsylvania [215.631.1595] Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, Cianci Chiropractic emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place.

Lansdale Chiropractor Attends Michael J. Fox MVP Awards Dinner for Parkinson’s Fundraising
On April 10, 2015, Christopher Cianci, D.C., CCSP, owner of Total Body Rehab, in Lansdale, was invited to the Team Fox MVP Awards Dinner at Gotham Hall, in New York City. This event honored and recognized about 400 top Team Fox community fundraisers at the ninth annual dinner. Michael J. Fox hosted the gala which took place during Parkinson’s Awareness Month in April.
Dr. Cianci, 55, is the co-founder of Shake It Off, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit that focuses on funding research on Parkinson’s disease, specifically as it relates to exercise as a therapy. Cianci started the non-profit after he saw the benefits of exercise on his wife, Jodi, who was diagnosed with Young Onset Parkinson’s Disease.
After utilizing the Cleveland Clinic’s protocol on exercise for Parkinson’s patients, Cianci saw improvement in his wife after only 6 weeks. “As a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner, I was able to put my wife on a high intensity workout that eased her symptoms and gave her back a better quality of life.” He also integrates massage therapy and adjustments on his wife at his Lansdale office, Total Body Rehab. Traditionally Parkinson’s patients are prescribed L-dopa for their symptoms. However, the side effects can be more debilitating than the disease. Cianci also states, “my wife is not on the traditional, gold standard, medicine [L-dopa] due to her exercising.”
This is the third year Dr. Cianci and his wife were invited to attend the MVP Awards Dinner. Last year they got to meet Michael J. Fox. Cianci helps fundraise for Parkinson’s by hosting the Philly Rabbit Run 5k at the Philadelphia Zoo and the PD500 Rock 'n' Roll Bike Ride.
As far as having time to run a non-profit and a busy Chiropractic office, Cianci states, “This is only temporary. It is my hope to have Shake It Off, Inc. for a limited amount of time. I want to be forced out of the business by researchers finding the cure for Parkinson’s!”
