Dr. Paul Venturini
Dr. Paul Venturini is a Springfield native and has served the area since 1989. In high school, he enjoyed playing competitive basketball and football until a sports related knee injury changed his college plans. He then decided to focus on health and wellness and discovered the philosophy of chiropractic care mirrored his own values and interests.
After graduating Logan College of Chiropractic in December of 1988, he moved back to Springfield and began treating patients. In 1996, he opened the current multi-specialty clinic providing full service health and wellness care.
Dr. Venturini is certified to provide unique soft tissue mobilization therapies that are not yet widely offered by health care workers. These include Active Release Technique — or ART — and the Graston Technique, both of which are fast ways to resolve pain related to muscle and other soft tissue dysfunctions.
Dr. Venturini specializes in natural relief of pain, back and neck problems, and provides guidance in exercises to properly heal injuries. He is a member of multiple chiropractic associations including the American Chiropractic Association Sports Council.
Since beginning his chiropractic career, Dr. Venturini has continued his education to benefit his clients. In addition to certifications in ART and Graston, he is certified as a Chiropractic Nutrition Specialist, Chiropractic Sports Physician, and is a treating physician for the Ironman Triatholon. He completed a three-year course in rehabilitation of musculoskeletal problems and has advanced training in diagnosing and managing the effects of whiplash and car related traumas.
Dr. Venturini is married with four children. He enjoys exercising, cycling, riding four-wheelers, hanging out with family and friends at his farm, listening to live music, traveling and sports, especially basketball and football.
