He sought help from his cousin, Dr. Ed Crealese, former president of the Massachusetts Chiropractic Association. Several years later as a Graduate student in Montreal, his Martial Arts instructor, Roger Lavoie, brought him to a Chiropractor/Kinesiologist for help with another ankle injury. It was here that Dr. Abbate found his calling. Within the year he enrolled at Life Chiropractic College in Atlanta, GA. After graduation in 1988 he opened a private practices with an emphasis on Applied Kinesiology, Nutrition, Neuro-emotional Technique, and homeopathy. He treated patients from all over the southeast with is eclectic practice. In 1995, Dr. Abbate and his wife Diane, decided to mover their family back to New England to be closer to their children’s grandmothers.

Just had my first chiropractor appointment with Dr. Frank Abbate (the son) very knowledgeable especially with regard to injury rehabilitation. Quickly diagnosed and resolved discomfort and provided exercises for at home care to build strength and stability.
Frank is awesome! I would highly recommend to anyone. As an athlete, he got me back into my sport within two weeks with just a couple visits and some at home stretching. As a first timer, he was very good at explaining what was going on and what we were doing. Very smart, cleanly, and kind, thank you Frank!
I think it’s easy to think of chiropractic as a profession who deals with back issues.
Not so. I had been dealing with a chronic cough for 4-5 months, and had been to the medical doctor twice, and the cough remained a mystery.
Frank is outstanding! Extremely patient, great listener, remarkably intuitive, understanding, kind and most of all effective. Every exercise he gave me had value, every motion was a step forward and every visit was time well spent. Very highly recommended!!!
Frank is knowledgeable, professional, clean & makes his patients feel comfortable. He has extensive knowledge of different stretches and movements that can be done at home to relieve pain and has not only helped me with neck/back issues, but I also my father, whom I referred over to Frank for Siatic nerve pain issues, and it’s completely improved his ailments as well.
Highly recommend Abbate Chiropractic!
I saw Dr. Frank W. Abbate to treat a recurring neck pain (of 8 years) with a current flare up of symptoms. After just 3 adjustments, and education on stretches to do at home, my neck pain has decreased significantly and I have noticable improvement in my range of motion.
Sara(h), who works in his office, is very kind, professional, and works hard to get patients in to see Dr. Abbate as soon as possible. She and Dr. Abbate make a great team!
To top this all off- Dr. Abbate told me that my ‘crack’ was YouTube worthy! It was loud, and gave nearly instant relief!
During these crazy times of COVID, Dr. Abbate’s office made it hassle free. I showed up, let them know I was there. They came out to get me. I went in for lower back pain that had been plaguing me for weeks. After an exam it was determined I just needed some concentrated stretches. Dr. Abbate showed me two stretches and a simple workout routine. After a few days I was back to normal.
