Dr. Adam J Del Torto, DC


Cranial Facial Release

Dr. Adam J. Del Torto, BS, DC, is a 1984 graduate of New York Chiropractic College. Dr. Adam presently has two successful practices in Burbank and Catalina Island, California. 


Dr. Adam started his professional practice as an associate doctor in Oyster Bay, NY, in 1985 under his mentor Dr. Rob Romanelli.  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 Doctor of Chiropractic was allowed to participate in scoliosis screenings in the New York public school system. 

Dr. Adam went back to undergraduate college and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Life Science from New York Institute of Technology in 1985 - graduating Cum Laude.  While in undergraduate college, Dr. Adam participated in groundbreaking biofeedback research under Dr. Bertram Spector, PhD, when biofeedback was in the dawn of its existence.   

Dr. Adam was also actively involved in developing the Collegiate Inter-professional Committee - an organization designed to enhance inter professional relationships between health professions through communication and education for the common good of the patient.  

Dr. Del Torto moved back to his hometown 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 political 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 prestigious Lions Award, an honor only given to an esteemed few individuals for their contribution to the community.


Dr. Del Torto moved from Lompoc in 1994 at which time he started a marketing company called DC Products, which marketed unique chiropractic educational and promotional products.  He authored a chiropractic educational coloring book for children called “Chiro Kids”, which is now in its second edition and distributed nationwide. 


Dr. Adam uses an integrative approach to treatment incorporating a combination of Diversified chiropractic adjusting techniques, SOT procedures, and Cranial Facial Release (CFR) – a specialized “balloon assisted” cranial adjusting technique that he developed, which evolved from an earlier form of endo-nasal cranial adjusting called Bilateral Nasal Specific (BNS).   


Dr. Adam is the founder and developer of Cranial Facial Release technique which is credentialed through Life West University and recognized as an acceptable and viable technique throughout the chiropractic community.  CFR is a unique cranial adjusting procedure that generates a lot of excitement + a high level of interest throughout the profession.  CFR often works with last resort patients who have not responded to other forms of conventional treatment - for such things as breathing disorders, migraine headaches, facial pain, facial paralysis, vertigo, learning disorders, neurological disorders, and especially Traumatic Brain Injuries and Post-Concussion Syndrome.  


Dr. Adam has lectured on this specialized cranial procedure at multiple chiropractic forums in both the U.S. and abroad, including Spain, Belgium, Holland, Germany, New Zealand, and Malaysia.  He has been featured as the mainstage speaker for the Annual CCA Convention, New Beginnings Seminar, SOTO-USA, and at the first ever Axiom Convention in Brussels, Belgium.  He teaches CFR seminars on an international basis which are eligible for Continuing Education Credits for licensed Chiropractors.


Dr. Adam has been featured on the E-Channel, Celebrity News Magazine, and The Randy Alverez “Wellness Hour”, which attracted international attention.  CFR is gaining momentum on an exponential basis as it gains recognition throughout the chiropractic profession. 


Dr. Adam’s latest creative endeavor includes the genesis of a new chiropractic movement and convention series called “CHIROPRACTIC ROCKS”, an annual event which features 20+ high-level speakers whose primary  focus is Unifying the Profession Behind a Common United Purpose & Helping to Shape the Future of Chiropractic.


Dr. Del Torto has 6 chiropractors in his family, including his uncle Dr. Gus Domenico who practices in upstate NY; his son Dr. Robert Del Torto who practices with Dr. Adam in his Catalina office + also has his own practice in Long Beach, CA; his cousin Dr. Brandon Friss and wife Dr. Amanda Friss who both practice in Singapore, and his cousin Dr. Bill McClune who also practices in upstate New York.  His 13-year-old grandson Angelo is the next generation of up-and-coming chiropractors in the Del Torto family rounding up 4 generations of chiropractors.
