Philosophy About Healing

Dr. DeFrancesco is a dedicated Doctor of Chiropractic, as evidenced by the completion of several hundred hours of continuing education seminars and numerous achievement awards over the years. He takes a comprehensive look at the “whole person”, not just his or her aches and pains.

He helps his patients understand how their bodies work and shows them how to establish pain-free existence. Chiropractors are not healers – they are catalysts for the innate healing powers within each and every individual.

Not only does Dr. DeFrancesco guide each of his patients in the categories of a healthy balanced approach, he is committed to each in his own life. His overall wellness model promotes:

  • Regular Exercise
  • Positive Thinking
  • Regular Chiropractic Care
  • Healthy Eating

He is passionate about continuing education and being current in the latest chiropractic advances.

He has served on the board for the Glastonbury Wellness Committee and was a 20-year member of the Glastonbury Rotary Club.
