The primary concerns for Doctors of Chiropractic Sclafani and Healy are to alleviate their patients? pain and prevent its recurrence. Whether patients are injured on the job or on the ball field, whether they?re dealing with back or neck pain, the chiropractors get them functioning again through use of massage and physical therapy as well as in-office adjustments. They treat everything from carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis to pinched nerves and sciatica. In correcting postures and movements, they also help patients prevent the return of injury or pain and teach them a number of exercises to assist in the process.
Doctor of Chiropractic and certified acupuncturist Patrick J. Guerin helms Westport Chiropractic, where he and his staff perform nonsurgical treatments for neck, back, and spine issues. They offer spinal decompression, adjustments, and acupuncture to help assuage leg, shoulder, hand, and foot pain, along with other maladies such as herniated discs and headaches.
To help clients combat weight problems, Westport Chiropractic offers noninvasive Lipo Light body-contouring treatments.
