There are seven Doctors of Chiropractic within the Stiso Family. It all began in 1959 when Dr. Frank A. Stiso
was injured during a high school football game. His family doctor told him he would be out the rest of the season.
Disheartened by the news, he wondered if chiropractic care could help. His father took him to see Dr. Water, a
local chiropractor in Linden NJ. Within days Dr. Stiso was back on the playing field!
Years later Dr. Stiso attended The Chiropractic Institute of New York and would go on to found the Colonia Chiropractic
Center in Colonia, NJ. Today there are 4 locations throughout the State.
