Meet Dr. Asuncion

Dr. Asuncion was born and raised on Long Island, NY as a first generation Filipino-American. Since he was young, he was always interested in fitness and exercise. He began working in outpatient physical therapy at the age of 19, which inspired him to obtain his Kinesiology degree from the State University of New York at Cortland before later attending New York Chiropractic College. Much of his adult life was spent in the Finger Lakes region of New York. He was in private practice in Ithaca prior to moving down to Maryland in 2017.

Dr. Asuncion’s rich history of working in healthcare settings have influenced his approach to addressing pain and achieving physical wellness. Having worked within hospitals, outpatient facilities, and skilled nursing facilities, he is able to combine that knowledge with recent years of personal training and rehabilitation, to deliver care with a modern and progressive approach.

With his undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and his current certifications in soft tissue treatment, human movement, golf-specific injury assessment and rehabilitation, and golf performance, Dr. Asuncion has a distinctive  and valuable perspective of how the body moves,  how it reacts to injury or pain, and how to maximize performance.

He started his practice at the beginning of 2020 with a vision for high quality care, truly individualized treatment, personalized attention, and sessions that were productive yet meaningful. Dr. Asuncion feels strongly about connecting with his clients, and allowing them to have an exclusive environment where they can be heard, recognized, and celebrated.

Testimonials

I had an excellent experience with Darrel Asuncion. He spent a considerable amount of time asking me various questions related to the pain itself, as well as my exercise and diet habits and overall goals for total wellness. After one session, I came away from the appointment feeling like I had an intelligent game plan to recover from a shoulder injury that had been bothering me for 6 to 8 months. Moreover, the in-office treatment as well as the physical therapy exercises that he prescribed have been invaluable and I am well on my way to recovery.

Dr. Darrel is my “go to” chiro in the DMV and I highly recommend him and his services. He’s attentive, personable, and cares about his patients and their treatment outcomes. Most importantly, he’s great at what he does and he helped me tremendously with my low back pain and got me in alignment, out of pain and back to life, sports, and exercise super fast.

I have worked with Dr. Asuncion for several months, and could not be more pleased with his chiropractic treatments, knowledge and dedication to holistic medicine. I am now pain free for the first time in well over a year. I am incredibly grateful to him, and urge others with muscular-structural issues to seek out Dr. Darrel for consultation….Dr. Asuncion spends time listening at every session. In addition, his practice follows strict medical guidelines to prevent the spread of disease. He allots time between patients’ visits for their safety.
