About Our Practice

My practice is extremely unique in that I have been in practice with my husband, Dr. Mark Joachim, for 15 years and we have developed many specialties within chiropractic so we are able to treat patients from newborns to seniors using state-of -the-art methods. In addition to traditional chiropractic care and physiotherapeutic modalities, I am currently 1 of about 120 chiropractic physicians who has obtained a Diplomate from the International Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics and in so doing I specialize in Pediatric and Maternity Care. As a result, I care for many prenatal/postnatal/pregnant moms and I am also certified in the Webster Breech Turning technique as well as prenatal fitness. I see many children in my office of all ages and disabilties and in addition to family wellness care, I see many children for conditions such as ear infections, asthma, torticollis, colic, gastric reflux, bedwetting, growing pains, sensory integration disorders including ADD/ADHD and autism, and a variety of neuromusculoskeletal conditions as they relate to spinal subluxations. In addition, I am certified in acupuncture and auricular therapy (electrical acupuncture.I have complete training with Scoliosis Systems and specialize in scoliosis treatment. My husband is currently the only physician in CT who has advanced certification in the BioSET Allergy Elimination Technique and he is able to help people of all ages eliminate food, environmental and chemical allergies,sensitivities and chronic health conditions without the use of drugs or shots. Some of the common conditions that he treats in addition to allergies are asthma, eczema,sinus conditions, migraines, fibromyalgia, thyroid disorders, gastric reflux and digestive disorders,candida, children with developmental disorders,and other chronic health disorders. Our newest state-of-the-art technology is the DRX 9000 True Spinal Decompression which is FDA cleared and has been shwon to be 86% successful in helping patients with disc herniations/disc bulges, disc degeneration, sciatica, facet syndrome, and failed low back surgery. This technology has been able to help hundreds of patients that often had no other options and it too has been extremely rewarding! At this point in time, we also have licensed massage therapists and a cranial sacral/Alexander Technique practitioner who work with us in our wellness center. We are always looking forward to helping families achieve optimal health and wellness with natural health care!
