Dr. Craig Newman, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Craig Newman moved to South Tampa from New Jersey in 1960 and attended Dale Mabry Elementary School, Coleman Junior High and H.B. Plant High School. Upon completion of his college education and graduation from National College of Chiropractic in 1981, he returned to Tampa with his wife, Grace.

For the first 18 months, he was an associate in another chiropractor's office. In July of 1983, he and his wife, Grace opened the Kennedy Blvd Chiropractic Clinic.
They have two children who were raised in South Tampa as well.

Over the past thirty-five years, Dr. Newman has been very active within the chiropractic and sports medicine community whether it be local or national. Dr. Newman has been president of the Hillsborough County Chiropractic Society three times over a twenty year period. On a State level, he was on the board of the Florida Chiropractic Association for five years and then elected President from 2011 until 2012. On the National level, he serves on the Board of Governors of the American Chiropractic Association.

As important is it is to be involved on a professional level, Dr. Newman feels the same about his community involvement. He was an active board member for the Tampa Bay Little League for four years and member of Rodeph Sholom Synagogue. He was President of Victoria Park homeowners association for three years and continues to serve as a board member.

A lot has changed in health care in the past 35 years but several things remains the same at the Kennedy Blvd Chiropractic Clinic, patients receive quality care, they are treated as if they were family, and they are shown how to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Dr. Newman has a thirst for knowledge in the chiropractic field and is continually implementing new with old techniques to best suit his patients needs. Dr. Newman continues to enjoy going to the office each day and hopes it is reflected in the care his patients receive. They have added an associate to the office, Dr. John Fauerbach, and they are thrilled to have him as part of the practice.

"We have continued to offer quality care in a warm comfortable health care environment, as we did when we first opened the office"
