Dr. Andrew Fiola is a native of western Massachusetts.  He attended Minnechaug Regional H.S. where he participated in football, ice hockey and track and field.  Upon graduation, Dr. Fiola went on to attend Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT.  There, he played four years of football, being named Defensive Player of the Year as a junior and team captain as a senior. 

Injuries suffered while playing sports and, more specifically, while training for these sports sparked Dr. Fiola’s interest in the field of sports medicine.  An early encounter with a sports chiropractor in high school steered him towards the unconventional path that he chose.  Graduating with a major in Biology from Wesleyan University, Dr. Fiola relocated to Dallas, TX to attend Parker University College of Chiropractic.  It was there that he continued to search for the sports chiropractic niche that he had envisioned, finding it with a clinical mentorship with Dr. Troy Van Biezen at ChiroSport Specialists of Dallas.  Dr. Van Biezen is the chiropractor for a handful of the most prominent golfers on the PGA tour, as well as the team chiropractor for the Dallas Stars and several other professional athletes.  In that setting, Dr. Fiola found what he was looking for. 

Prior to graduation, Dr. Fiola attended courses outside of school to become full body and nerve entrapment certified in Active Release Techniques, as well as receiving certifications from TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) and SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment).  Graduating from Parker College of Chiropractic Summa Cum Laude, Dr. Fiola was asked to join the staff working under Dr. Van Biezen, where he worked for 2 more years on top of the 8 month clinical rotation.  In order to be closer to family, Dr. Fiola moved back to Massachusetts and opened Fiola Sports Chiropractic in January of 2015.  Dr. Fiola seeks to bring the same level of care that was so effective in Dallas, to athletes of all skill levels in the Boston area.

Dr. Fiola is married to his beautiful wife Kristin, and loves spending time with their son Jackson and two crazy dogs, Rodney and Bru.
