Biography: Gregory DeCrescenzo, D.C.
Dr. Gregory DeCrescenzo started his education at Rhode Island College and finished his pre-medical courses at New College of California in Los Angeles. He began his chiropractic education in 1993 at Life Chiropractic College West in San Leandro, California, where he was one of the youngest students in his class. After early completion of the clinical requirements to become a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. DeCrescenzo worked as an examination doctor with Athens Chiropractic Clinic in San Carlos, California, formerly the treatment facility for the San Francisco Forty Niners and the San Francisco Giants. It was here that Dr. DeCrescenzo had the opportunity to treat several professional athletes. Dr. DeCrescenzo quickly advanced to the head of the examination department for Athens Chiropractic while also studying for the national boards.
Dr. DeCrescenzo was first introduced to chiropractic at the age of 16 following an injury that he sustained to his lower back while competing in powerlifting. After conventional treatment was ineffective, he sought the care of a local chiropractor. His injuries resolved within two weeks of chiropractic care and rehabilitation. From this period forward, Dr. DeCrescenzo aspired to be a Doctor of Chiropractic. He maintained a friendship with the chiropractor, who kindly sponsored Dr. DeCrescenzo to compete in Russia for a world powerlifting competition.
Dr. DeCrescenzo went on to win several powerlifting competitions, including the title of World's Strongest Teenager. Dr. DeCrescenzo feels that chiropractic care was instrumental in the success that he attained in powerlifting.
Dr. DeCrescenzo met his wife Dr. Shadi Shakoori while attending Life Chiropractic College West and following graduation, married and returned to East Providence, Rhode Island. Dr. DeCrescenzo and Dr. Shakoori opened their first practice in East Providence in November 1999. Now, the couple owns and operates four chiropractic clinics in Rhode Island. Dr. DeCrescenzo is licensed in California, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. He is a member of the Rhode Island Chiropractic Society and the Italian American Club.
