About / Robert Inesta
Robert Inesta, DC, L.Ac, CCSP
Dr. Inesta was inspired to begin his journey in health the hard way – as a patient in pain with multiple injuries and having gone through spinal and shoulder surgeries. He is a Chiropractor, Licensed Acupuncturist, Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner and fascial specialist. He helps patients become the healthiest versions of themselves through lifestyle consulting, education and removing internal obstacles.
His belief is that the patient is the true healer and that the doctor’s role is to first listen to the patient’s story, then teach and empower them to do what they are designed to do – heal!
He earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at New York Chiropractic College, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude, was inducted into Phi Chi Omega Honor Society and was the recipient of multiple clinical achievement awards.
Dr. Inesta is one of the only chiropractors in Westchester, NY who is also a Licensed Acupuncturist, after having completed a three year Masters of Science degree and board licensing exams in acupuncture. He combines Traditional Chinese Medicine with Scalp Acupuncture, Acupuncture Physical Medicine and other contemporary styles of needling based on modern research in neuroscience and physiology.
Frustrated with the mainstream approach to injuries, autoimmune disease, digestive disorders, diabetes, obesity, chronic fatigue and chronic pain, he felt there had to be a better way. A lifelong student, he is committed to always learning and incorporating the most effective treatment systems. He has tremendously improved his personal health, and has helped improve the health of thousands of others by applying the knowledge and skills he’s acquired along the way.
Dr. Inesta’s extensive postgraduate training consists of functional rehabilitation, soft tissue therapy, biomechanics, functional medicine, nutrition, neurochemistry, clinical neurophysiology and electrodiagnosis. He is certified in Active Release Techniques, Stecco Fascial Manipulation, Graston Technique and Kinesiotaping, and is a member of the Fascial Research Society.
He is the clinical director of Westchester Sports & Wellness in Harrison, NY where he provides chiropractic, acupuncture and fascial therapy services, and the founder and clinical director of ViaVitae Health in Greenwich, CT where he provides functional medicine consulting. He has written numerous articles on health, lectured extensively and co-authored the training manuals of the National Federation of Personal Trainers and the books “Principles of Functional Exercise” and “A Squash Player’s Training Handbook.” His hobbies include spending time outdoors, reading, writing, teaching, learning, exercising and playing music. His favorite way to spend time is with his family.
