About Our Practice

My wife, Dr. Risa Sloves, and I have been in practice in Norwalk, CT for 15 years and we have a very diverse practice with many different specialties so we are ble to take care of patients of all ages and abilities.

In addition to being a chiropractic physician and specializing in all aspects of neuromusculoskeletal conditions, I am currently the only physician in CT with advanced certification in the BioSET Allergy Elimination Technique. BioSET is a non-invasive treatment for all types of food and environmental allergies and it does not use any medications or injections. It is an innovative system of healing that effectively prevents and treats health issues. Allergy elimination, nutrition, enzyme therapy, and detoxification are combined to remove toxins and stresses from the body, especially the immune and digestive systmes, restoring health and natural vitality.

BioSET can treat food and environmental allergies and sensitivities, asthma and eczema, ADD/ADHD, Candida, Sinus Conditions, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia, Digestive Disorders, Headaches and Migraines, Thyroids disorders, PMS and many other chronic health conditions.

In addition, we have expanded on our high-tech treatments in our office and are utilizing the DRX9000 True Spinal Decompression to help patients suffering with disc herniations/disc bulges, disc degeneration, sciatica, facet syndrome and failed low back surgery. This treatment has been FDA cleared and has been shown to be 86% successful in helping these patients who may otherwise have had no other options. Many have actually had multiple surgeries in the past with no relief and they are now helped with without the dangerous side effects of drugs and surgery. We are thrilled to be able to be one of the few offices in Connecticut who are now offering this relief to low back pain sufferers!

In addition to BioSET and the DRX 9000, both my wife and I are certified in acupuncture and our office offers a variety of physiotherapeutic modalities for pain control and rehabilitation. Our wellness center also offers licensed massage therapy as well as cranial sacral therapy and the Alexander technique.

My wife, Dr. Risa Sloves, is currently one of a handful of chiropractic physicians in Ct with Board Certification in Pediatric and Maternity Care and as a reasult she specializes in taking care of pre and postnatal moms and children. In addition to helping moms and mothers to be have a healthy, painfree pregnancy( free of back apin and sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, etc. and helping breech babies turn into a better position for delivery) and hopefully uneventful and natural delivery, she sees children of all ages and abilities. Some of the common conditions that chiropractic care can benefit are ear infections, asthma, bedwetting, scoliosis, growing pains, colic and torticollis, just to name a few).

So, we have specialized our training over the past 17 years to be able to offer families and individuals of all ages a variety of non-invasive, state-of-the-art health care treatments to help them reach their optimal health potential!
