Dr. Del Torto graduated from New York Chiropractic College in 1984, and started his
professional practice as an associate with Dr. Robert Romanelli in
Oyster Bay, NY, in 1985. During that time Dr. Adam was selected as
one of the few chiropractors to organize and conduct scoliosis examinations
on grade school children in the state of New York - this was a pioneer
event, being the first time a chiropractic doctor was allowed to participate
in scoliosis screenings in the New York public school system. Dr. Adam
worked as an associate doctor for a period of one year while he went
back to undergraduate school to complete his Bachelors Degree. He received
a BS in Life Science from New York Institute of Technology in 1985,
graduating Cum Laude. While in school, Dr. Adam participated in biofeedback
research under Dr. Bertram Spector, PhD in clinical research. He was
also actively involved in developing the Collegiate Interprofessional
Committee - an organization designed to enhance interprofessional relationships
between health professions through communication and education, for
the common good of the patient. Dr. Del Torto moved back to his home
town of Lompoc, CA, in 1986, where he developed a very successful practice
with two associate doctors. While in Lompoc, he was active in various
community projects, including the "Leadership Lompoc Valley"
program - a select group of individuals who elicited leadership qualities,
and took part in an extensive 12 month program which concentrated on
community development, local issues, and concerns. Dr. Adam was also
an active member of several international organizations, including
the Rotary Club where he was responsible for organizing and hosting
the annual district convention for the high school Interact Club, a
major project involving over 200 students from 13 different high schools.
For his efforts, Dr. Adam was awarded the Lions Award, a prestigious
honor given to an esteemed few individuals for their contribution to
Dr. Del Torto left Lompoc in 1994 and started a company
called DC Products which markets chiropractic products nationally and
internationally, and features unique educational and promotional products
designed by Dr. Adam. (See Chiropractic Products).
He has authored a chiropractic educational coloring book for children,
which is now in its second edition and is distributed nationwide. Dr.
Del Torto has also been published in several major chiropractic journals
with articles he has written on chiropractic.
Dr. Adam traveled
to Sydney, Australia in 1988 where he attended the International Chiropractic
Research Symposium, which featured the latest advances in
chiropractic education and research. He also traveled to New Zealand
that same year and lectured to the International Cultural Exchange
Wrestling Team on the prevention and treatment of wresting injuries.
Being a former wrestler himself, Dr. Adam
is well versed on this subject.
Dr. Del Torto was also present for the first ever ACA/ICA Joint Chiropractic
Convention which was a milestone event in the chiropractic profession.
This was the first time the two principal associations in chiropractic
came together to discuss and debate issues. He regularly attends continuing
educational seminars, and has participated in cadaver cranial dissection
seminars under Dr. Marc Pick at Clevelend Chiropractic College in Los
Angeles. Dr. Del Torto underwent an intensive 70 hour specialized training
program in 1998 with Dr. Dean Howell, N.D., founder and developer of
the NCR Technique, to become certified in NCR (Neuro Cranial Restructuring)
- a specialized endonasal cranial technique that very few doctors are
qualified to perform. He underwent months of additional
educational training to gain status as an Industrial Disability Evaluator
(IDE) and a Qualified Medical Examiner (QME) for the state of California.
This established him as an expert physician in evaluating patients
for the California Workers Compensation system.
Dr. Del Torto recently scaled back his Catalina practice and now spends most of his time at his Burbank office, where he offers specialized treatment including CFR treatment and Acuscope / Myopulse therapy. He is an active member of a number of different chiropractic
associations, including the Federation for Chiropractic Education and Research, California Chiropractic Association, Sacro Occipital Technique Organization, and the Sacro Occipital Research
Society International, just to name a few.
Dr. Del Tortos professional goals include furthering his education
and credentials. He is focusing his efforts on developing
a reproducable integrative cranial technique centering around endo-nasal therapy
(CFR). With his efforts, research, and accomplishments, he hopes to
be able to contribute back to the chiropractic profession.
