CEO, Chiropractic Physician


Dr. Lindsey Mansueto is a chiropractic physician who graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2007 with a Magna Cum Laude degree in Pre-Professional Biology from Florida Institute of Technology. Since opening Flemington Chiropractic Center's doors in May of 2013, Dr. Lindsey has built what is now one of the most premiere Chiropractic & Wellness centers in Hunterdon County. She has won several awards including "Most Promising New Business" and voted Hunterdon Happenings "BEST Chiropractor" for 6 years (2015, 2016, 2018, 2019 & 2020 - voted Top 3 in 2017). In 2018 she expanded her practice to the newly renovated suite 103 and added more staff to accommodate her patients' demands - adding Cupping, Reiki, Healing Touch, Orthotics and Aromatherapy. Dr. Lindsey feels this whole person approach is important to heal and live at optimal levels of health and well-being. She continues to give back to her community in big and small ways by participating yearly in the Flemington Food Pantry Food Drive, Baby and Tot Fair at Hunterdon Medical Center as well as spearheading community outreach initiatives. In 2019 she set forth a proclamation with Betsy Driver to declare September Drug-Free Pain Awareness Month in Hunterdon County. Dr. Lindsey held an open discussion at the Stangl  Factory Farmers Market for the community to receive education about non-invasive holistic therapies that provide relief without any painful surgeries or  addictive opioids. She also spoke on a panel for the Force of Change Women's Conference in November 2019 accompanied by the American Red Cross to discuss stress reduction and pain management for women entrepreneurs. Dr. Lindsey's passion is to empower her patients to fearlessly focus on the life they want to create and teach them how to systematically journal, focus on their intentions and not internalize the stress of modern-day living. Anything Dr. Lindsey does, it is with one goal in my mind; not only just to alleviate pain in her patients but to inspire her patients to become active participants in their own well-being. She is honored and humbled to be able to provide an outlet for her patients seeking holistic care and she loves educating the public, staying active as well as spending time with her adoring family!
