Jason Pirigyi

Jason Pirigyi, DC, MS

Dr. Jason Pirigyi grew up in New Jersey as an avid athlete.  Unfortunately, a passion for athletics came with its fair share of injuries which ultimately ended his sports career. It is through the recovery of these injuries that he discovered sports medicine and chiropractic. Now, as a Chiropractic Physician, he is able to stay connected to the athletic community by keeping his patients in the game and doing what they love.

Since beginning private practice, he has continued to expand his knowledge base in order to stay up to date on the newest advancements in assessment and treatment within the field. He believes in using evidence-based treatments and in getting patients to take an active role in their care, in order to get back to activities as soon as possible.  With various treatment options in his tool belt, the correct approach can be applied to the specific needs of the patient instead of one treatment forced upon everyone.
