Dr. Liz Santangelo, D.C. C.F.M.P.

Dr. Liz joins Santangelo Family Chiropractic with great passion for offering a space of healing for her community. Dr. Liz received her B.S. in Health and Behavior Science from the University of Delaware. She knew she wanted to be part of the healthcare profession but was unsure until she realized how much of an impact having a chiropractor as a father shaped her outlook on health. She realized that she grew up free of many of the “normal” problems that a lot of her peers grew up with such as ear infections, growing pains, and the annual flu. She then continued her education at Life University in Marietta, GA where she graduated as summa cum laude with her doctorate in chiropractic. In school Dr. Liz furthered her education in multiple chiropractic techniques including sacro-occipital, Thompson, activator, neuro-emotional, knee chest upper cervical, Webster (prenatal), full spine diversified, bio-geometric integration and torque release technique. Dr. Liz is also a certified functional medicine practitioner and is currently pursuing her diplomate in nutritional sciences.

Dr. Liz loves to take care of expecting moms, athletes and children! She especially loves to care for entire family’s because she’s seen time and time again family’s that get well together, stay well together!

When Dr. Liz is not in the office you can find her going on hikes and baking healthy alternative desserts.
