meet Our team at Friendship Heights Chiropractic
Friendship Heights Chiropractic has been serving the Washington DC community for over 28 years. Dr. Thomas Connelly is a leader in the Chiropractic Profession having served on the Chiropractic Association as president and vice president many times over the years. In 2007 the association voted him “Chiropractor of the Year” for his dedication to the Chiropractic Profession. He has treated patients of all ages over his career and seen their health restored. Dr. Andrew Hancock is dedicated to the health and well-being of his patients. We are here to serve. Friendship Heights Chiropractic is not just a back pain clinic. Although we certainly help many people obtain relief from their back pain, it’s not the only thing we do. In fact, many patients who initially come into our office complaining of back pain or neck pain, are happy to find that other symptoms they have been suffering from are relieved as well. A thorough consultation and examination is the first step to discovering what we can do for you.
Take the time to read each doctor’s statement and read a few patient testimonials. You’ll be glad you did!
Andrew Hancock, D.C.
Washington DC Chiropractor Andrew Hancock, graduated second in his class from New York Chiropractic College. He obtained specialized training in Flexion Distraction techniques, soft tissue therapy and physical therapy. While in school, he was a teaching assistant in the anatomy department and was giving primary lectures to fellow students by the time he graduated.
Prior to graduation, he was awarded a certification in Applied Kinesiology, which employs nutrition and acupressure techniques in conjunction with Chiropractic adjustments to aid in the healing process of the human body.
Following a previous career in the theatre in New York City which included working for the New York Shakespeare Festival Joseph Papp Public Theatre, Dr. Hancock came to Chiropractic. In his own words, “I was working out 5 nights a week at a very competitive kung fu school in Chinatown while working as a stagehand during the day. A friend of mine was seeing a chiropractor and noticed that I was still having problems with my back from a 10-year-old injury. I took my friend’s advice and went to see his chiropractor. Within 6 weeks of intensive care, I went from experiencing back pain 7 days a week to once in three weeks and my kung fu got better. My hands and feet were faster and my hips were more flexible. My life-changing experience because of chiropractic care motivated me to want to become a Chiropractor and help others like myself”.
While in the city of Buffalo, New York, Dr. Hancock was competitively selected to serve our veterans at the Buffalo/Niagara Veterans Administration Hospital in one of the first chiropractic departments in the VA system. Dr. Hancock regards serving our Veterans as one of the greatest honors he has experienced.
Dr. Hancock’s outside interests include the performing arts, the martial arts, and world mythology.
