Dr. Joseph DeFrancesco joined the practice in early 2022, with the goal of bringing safe, natural and effective chiropractic care to the families of Glastonbury – his hometown – and the surrounding communities.



Doctor of Chiropractic Degree: Life University College of Chiropractic in Marietta, Georgia

Having been raised in Glastonbury, I wanted to give back to a community that provided a safe and pleasant place to grow up.

Experience with Chiropractic

During school, Dr. Joe participated in both the in-patient and out-patient clinic programs offered at Life University. He gained experience with handling a wide variety of patient cases at all age ranges. Dr. Joe went on to finish his residency with a prestigious doctor who specialized in family and pediatric chiropractic care, serving the Greater Atlanta area.

Coming from a family of chiropractors, I have been adjusted all of my life, from birth to present day. I believe it is vitally important to keep your spine protected and in normal alignment throughout your entire life.

Dr. Joe specializes in family chiropractic care and approaching health and wellness with a wholistic and natural focus, centered around the chiropractic adjustment. Our bodies have amazing healing abilities when our nervous system is free from interferences caused by abnormal spinal alignment and motion.

On a Personal Note

Dr. Joe enjoys maintaining an active lifestyle and loves to cycle, hike and ski. He also likes to spend his time giving back and being involved in his local community.

I look forward to meeting you and joining your journey to better health and wellness.

Featured Patient Testimonial

I have had—and continue to have—such a wonderful experience with the Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury! I first started going in the fall of 2022 with some pretty bad lumbar pain, and with Dr. DeFrancesco’s help, I continue to get better and better. What makes the Center’s approach so wonderful is that they won’t just “fix” you, but they’ll also give you strategies and recommendations to help you minimize your discomfort on your own—they really care about your wellbeing! Outside of the actual benefits of care, if I had to pick something about CHCG that I admire and appreciate the most, it would have to be the true kindheartedness of the staff. I lost my cousin (who was also a lifelong best friend) tragically back in November and happened to mention it during an adjustment, and a few days later, I received a handwritten sympathy card from Dr. Joe and the team. Things like that go a long way! I recommend CHCG without reservation.

"Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury is second to none! Dr. Joe is personable, knowledgeable, empathetic, professional and has great bedside manner. The customer service I've experienced with Brooke, with scheduling and having to reschedule has been incredibly. Being able to communicate via text instead of calling is such a huge convenience!"
