About Our Practice
Dr. Tobet has been in private practice in Fairfield, Connecticut for the past 23 years. He became board certified as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (C.C.S.P.) in 1988. He has volunteered his services as a sports physician at such events as the Nutmeg Games, the Special Olympics, and the Fairfield Half Marathon. Dr. Tobet has also served as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Bridgeport Chiropractic College.
Dr. Tobet believes in a multidisciplinary approach to healthcare, which means that he believes that all healthcare providers should work together to find the best possible outcome for the patient. For example, if a referral to another specialty is necessary, Dr. Tobet will not hesitate to do so. Medical doctors will often refer patients to Dr. Tobet as well for chiropractic care.
Sometimes surgery and medication is necessary, but the most fulfilling part of being a chiropractor, for Dr. Tobet, over the past 23 years is saving people from unnecessary surgery and medication. Disc herniations (either in the neck or lower back), for example, are often a reason for surgery but Dr. Tobet has found only a few cases in 23 years that could not be helped through chiropractic care (see our recent testimonials). Dr. Tobet has also helped patients who were told they needed surgery for stenosis (also in either the neck or back).
The treatment that Dr. Tobet uses will vary from patient to patient, based upon a thorough understanding of the patient’s diagnosis. In addition to traditional chiropractic techniques, Dr. Tobet utilizes physiotherapy such as ultrasound when necessary. Massage therapy performed by a licensed massage therapist in the office, prior to chiropractic treatment, is often recommended.
