doctor-crist-francisco

Dr. Crist Francisco was raised near Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. His mother, a massage therapist, taught him all the bones in the body at the age of 4. From a very young age, he competed in just about every sport possible throughout his childhood. Crist's father taught him the game of golf at 10, and he fell in love with the game. He played competitive golf throughout high school and college at Johnson & Wales University. He later went on to compete in professional events in the South Florida area and also taught golf for 6 years.

In 2007, Dr. Francisco finished his BSBA at Nova Southeastern University, and also earned his Florida real estate license (still active today). In 2010, he went on to earn a MA in Youth & Young Adult Ministry from Andrews Theological Seminary in Berrien Springs, Michigan. There he worked as a youth pastor and was director of the Pioneer Memorial Church summer camp in 2010. He currently holds a unit of CPE training which allows him to serve as a hospital chaplain in his spare time. He decided to pursue his dream in 2011 and began attending Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, FL. He graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic in 2014. He has worked at various chiropractic clinics since graduating school in Deltona, FL, Edgewater, FL, West Palm Beach, FL and now in lovely NSB.

He has worked on himself and many others and been able to help heal the body through nutritional knowledge and therapies.
