Dr. Natasha Maltese, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Natasha Maltese grew up in a small town in northern Ontario, Canada, and decided to embrace the outdoors by participating in cross country skiing, cross country running and track and field. The countless hours of skiing and dry land training was followed by the inevitable injuries. Fortunately for her, the injuries forced her to seek treatment from a chiropractor which sparked her interest in the continually expanding health care profession and in only a few visits to her chiropractor's office she knew this would be a profession she would like to pursue.

Her passion for exercise, nutrition and overall physical wellness led her to pursue an undergraduate degree in Exercise Science at the University of New Hampshire. Her undergraduate responsibilities included working with clients in the Employee Fitness Program as well as an older population of patients in the Cardiac Rehabilitation Program. Being involved in these programs encouraged her to inspire others to improve their health and physical abilities with the philosophy of allowing the body to heal naturally without the use of medications or invasive procedures.

She continued her aspiration to expand her scientific background and become a natural healthcare provider by attending New York Chiropractic College where she earned her Doctorate in Chiropractic. She attended NYCC from 2011-2014 where her education and manual therapy skills have been expanded through a number of elective courses. Her skill set is proficient in full spine manual adjusting techniques, Pro-adjuster, flexion-Distraction, Drop Table Spine Technique and instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization therapy.

She thoroughly enjoys informing and educating patients on all of their healthcare concerns and questions. It is her continual goal to strive for professional and personal excellence which she knows will continue by working at Spine and Sports Therapy.
