Additional treatment options in our office include Class IV cold laser therapy, a motorized lumbar disc traction table and the availability of acupuncture treatments by an MD who is trained as an acupuncturist.  This is thousands year old treatment approach that complements our contemporary naturally focused approach to the management of a patients pain.  When you add in our chiropractic,  Physical therapy modalities, nutritional, and massage services, our patients have available the same procedures that are now being used by virtually all professional sports teams to help reduce pain, inflammation and swelling in damaged muscles and joints.  Our experience has shown that these services can be a valuable addition for patients who want to help hasten their recovery process.

Our patients, locally from Norwalk or from a national or international sports team, learn the cause of their conditions or symptoms and are provided the most appropriate care either in our office or by any number of colleagues throughout all medical specialties.
