Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community.
The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
Three questions with Dr. Jared DiLorenzo, owner of Danbury Chiropractic and Wellness.
Why did you start your business?
It may sound cliché but I always wanted to be in business to help people. I chose chiropractic as it is a natural form of healthcare that taps into the body’s innate ability to heal itself. As a Chiropractor, I have a great opportunity to educate my patient’s so they have the knowledge to make better health decisions for themselves. It is also very satisfying knowing that I am helping people achieve their health-related goals, from just simply getting out of pain, to achieving a health and wellness lifestyle.
What is your best selling product/service?
At Danbury Chiropractic and Wellness, we have intentionally created an environment where the staff is warm and friendly, the doctors are accessible, and all patients are treated with care and respect. Dr. DiLorenzo is also only one of seven practicing chiropractors in the state of CT that is certified in the Cox Technique. This technique is a non-surgical, non-hospital, gentle, well-researched, chiropractic spinal adjustment. The Cox Technique realigns and restores range of motion inherent to the spine while reducing low back pain, especially in radiculopathy (leg pain, arm pain) patients.
How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?
There are a number of local businesses that we utilize on a regular basis in order to provide outstanding patient care. We have the pleasure of working with the local attorneys at Ventura Law and Hokenga & Machado. The staff at Open MRI and Northeast Radiology are always very accommodating when scheduling our patients for advanced imaging procedures. Also when our patients are in severe pain we have the pleasure of working with the Pain and Spine Specialists of CT and Orthopedic Specialist of CT.
Danbury Chiropractic and Wellness is located at 85 North Street, Unit 7, Danbury.
This was an article we had run in the Brookfield Chamber of Commerce.
For more than 30 years Danbury Chiropractic and Wellness has helped patients achieve optimal health by working synergistically and holistically with the human body, without the use of surgery or drugs.
Our patients benefit from the special attention given to the functional relationship between the spine and nervous system and the results of this relationship on general health and wellness. We promote a “chiropractic lifestyle” with good health founded upon spinal health, exercise, good nutrition, a healthy lifestyle and the natural healing powers of the body.
Our office is designed to be relaxing, caring, and efficient and a patient centered environment. Our staff is professional and caring and fluent in Spanish and Portuguese, and we focus on family and pediatric care, sports related and motor vehicle injuries, workers compensation cases and preventative healthcare.
We are committed to comprehensive care using the latest techniques. My excellent associates Dr. Jared DiLorenzo, Dr. Jonathan Cerutti and I have undergone extensive postdoctoral education and training in orthopedics, neurology, radiology, sports injuries and treating pre-and post surgical cervical and lumbar disc herniations. We utilize a combination of flexion-distraction technique, spinal manipulation, cold low level laser and physical therapy, and an exercise program, all evidence-based and highly effective, safe and efficacious.
We value each patient as a person, are active listeners and provide patients with a thorough foundation of where they are physically what they can achieve with intervention of chiropractic care.
Our main objectives when working with a patient are not just about spines and soft tissue manual treatment, Chiropractic care includes patient education and motivation, modification of lifestyle and prescription and supervision of exercises. It is the whole clinical encounter that gives the patient the understanding, motivation and ability to make lifestyle changes that lead to future spinal and general health and avoidance of recurrent pain and disability.
We utilize state-of-the-art equipment and techniques such as cold low level laser therapy, Cox flexion-distraction for most of our patients who have disc herniations. Currently, we are one of 20 offices across the country that has been selected to conduct a research program with patients who have had low back surgery with or without fusion. Active Release Technique for sport injuries which is very effective and used to treat professional sports teams, Olympians. We also utilize Whole Body Vibration. This machine was initially utilized in the Russian space program to prevent bone and muscle loss the Russians then realized that they could accelerate their athlete’s rehabilitation from sport injuries. We also utilize kinesiology taping which supports strained muscles in an active, dynamic way and computerized spinal nerve screening. Our profession is high touch.
We are the official chiropractors for the Danbury Whalers and along with other medical team members, particularly Lee Day, RPT and Bill Romaniello ATC who have done a terrific job, endeavor to keep the players healthy and care for their injuries. It’s very rewarding and exciting to be able to participate with such a great organization. Pre-performance chiropractic care has been shown to improve biomechanical and neurological function and has a highly significant impact on performance and results.
We are committed on keeping up with the latest research and techniques, caring for each patient as a unique individual.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT): LLLT has been used for over 40 years to relieve pain, remove scars, heal wounds and regenerate nerves. In a nutshell LLLT causes tissue to heal faster, 66% faster according to the FDA, by working at the cellular level and therefore relief comes quicker.
WHOLE BODY VIBRATION (WBV): WBV, initially used in the Russian space program to maintain bone mineral density and muscle strength, is a platform you stand on that moves very rapidly. This controlled motion is transferred up through your body. All of your body tissues are forced to react to the stimulus of the vibrating platform. WBV works and tones your muscles more efficiently than conventional exercises, increases lymphatic drainage and the release of endorphins, improves balance and ordination, enhances your blood flow and oxygenation, improves bone mineral density and lowers your stress hormone Cortisol.
