To observe Veterans Day, Thrive chiropractic will offer U.S. Veterans discounted rates for chiropractic assessment and adjustments during the month of November AND as a gift through December.
Chiropractors are the only doctors that use specific adjustments to the spine and joints of the body. Doctors of Chiropractic have special education of the nerve system and many are wellness experts who advise you on many components of living a progressively well lifestyle. As part of experiencing this wellness lifestyle, it is important to be checked for the presence of vertebral subluxations – which are dysfunctions/malposition of the bones in your spine putting pressure on nerves. Research has shown this dysfunction/malposition will compromise the normal functioning of nerves and will influence your overall health and well-being.
A member of the Northwest CT Chamber of Commerce, Thrive chiropractic also offers an orientation on alternating Tuesday evenings, 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM for new patients as well as those who are “just” curious. Call 860-618-7272 to register for an orientation. TheseTuesday night orientations on chiropractic will progressively educate you in keeping your body healthier thus allowing you to feel great, look great and live better. Topics covered include how safe and comfortable chiropractic adjustments can be, the difference between a slipped disc and a pinched nerve, how subluxations occur and are who can benefit from chiropractic adjustments? Dr. Samoska’s mission is to inspire and educate others to feel healthier and progressively live better.
Recently relocated from Colorado Springs, Colorado, Dr. Samoska has been a practicing chiropractor for more than 18 years. “I have previously owned a practice in New Preston, CT and have been an associate doctor for several practices in CO, CT, NH and even MN”. Some of my greatest learning after school has been during my associateships.
Thrive Chiropractic is a fee for service office and keeps the fees extremely reasonable for most situations. Inquire to learn more about affordable family options. Remember, the important decision is you living healthfully.
For more information or to register for an orientation, call 860-618-7272. The more you learn about chiropractic care, the more you will benefit from its application.
