About Us
It’s a Family Affair!
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!
 

Inspired by the results he had experienced, 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.

Our Services
Over the years the one thing that has always remained the same is the level of service rendered to every patient. The Colonia Chiropractic Center utilizes modern state of the art chiropractic and medical equipment, including physical therapeutic modalities and in-house x-ray facilities. Treatment tables are the top of the line, fully automatic and include the latest flexion/distraction technology available. Recent studies show patients are experiencing a noticeable decrease in pain within the first few treatments. These advances in technology are used in conjunction with a manual chiropractic spinal adjustment, to effectively correct or reduce bulged or herniated discs without drugs or surgery. In addition, a wide variety of non-force techniques are incorporated to accommodate all types of body frames, including children.
 
Forty years ago only a few insurance companies offered chiropractic benefits. Today, almost all of them include chiropractic coverage and the Colonia Chiropractic Center participates with virtually all of them! (SEE PAGE 5) Throughout his career Dr. Frank A. Stiso has been very active in gaining insurance coverage for chiropractic patients, formerly serving as president of the Union, Middlesex and Somerset Chiropractic Society as well as The New Jersey Chiropractic Society. Presently, he serves nationally as a Delegate for the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) representing New Jersey. 

More recently Dr. Stiso became the first Doctor of Chiropractic in the United States to be placed on a Blue Cross/Blue Shield medical policy committee.  It happened here in New Jersey with Horizon BCBS.
 

Over the years, thousands of patients with a variety of spinal related health problems ranging from muscle spasms to herniated discs have been successfully treated at the Colonia Chiropractic Center. However there are still thousands of people who live in constant pain because they do not know the benefits of chiropractic care. 
 
Today many local medical physicians understand the limitations and dangers of drugs or surgery and readily refer patients to Colonia Chiropractic for safe, non-invasive treatment. 
 


Testimonial 1

I had neck & shoulder pain for over a year and it was gradually getting worse. Eventually, the pain was so intense I couldn’t even lift my arm to put on my jacket to go to work. 
 
I tried everything. Consulted a number of medical doctors, tried dozens pain killers, all of which were ineffective. I was then told I needed surgery and that there was no other alternative.  
 
A week later my brother-in-law told me that a few years earlier he had experienced the same exact problem and recommend I see Dr. Stiso for a consultation. It was the best decision I ever made. Six months later I was pain free and back to my normal self.   “Everything” hasn’t been tried until you’ve seen Dr. Stiso!    -James Z.

Testimonial 2

 
For ten years I suffered from arm & finger pain. It began after my car accident and worsened over time. I was unable to sleep in my own bed, clean my house, and perform my usual activities. The pain began in my neck and shot down my arm into my fingers.  I often slept in a recliner trying to reduce the pain!
 
My doctor prescribed muscle relaxers but it didn’t help with the pain. So he increased the dosage to 800mg 2X per day. This did nothing but upset my stomach. Thinking I had to live with the pain for the rest of my life I was very upset. As a nurse my job is very demanding. As a Mom my kids are twice as demanding. I didn’t know what to do.
 
On my father’s advice I decided to give chiropractic a try. Within one month of seeing Dr. Stiso my pain was reduced dramatically and the feeling in my fingers returned. Chiropractic treatment not only got rid of the pain it restored my life. I now enjoy life with my husband, practice as an R.N. and care for my children. I’m off all medications and sleeping through the night in my own bed.      -Teresa M.
