Dr. Elisa LaFavor is dedicated to providing quality care and truly listening to her patient’s concerns.
Dr. LaFavor is passionate about continuing education and stays current with the latest advances in chiropractic. She was first introduced to chiropractic when she received care from a husband and wife team in her home state of Maine. After working with the couple, she realized chiropractic could be her career path.
Bachelor of Science: University of Maine
Doctor of Chiropractic Degree: Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, Florida
Experience with Chiropractic
During school, Dr. LaFavor participated in the Clinic Abroad Program and received a recognition certificate for providing chiropractic care to students and families in Fiji.
She began her career in Florida in 2010, with a primary goal to improve overall patient wellness through routine chiropractic care, nutrition and functional exercise.
Being a Female Chiropractor
When her husband received a job offer from Pratt & Whitney, they relocated to Connecticut with their two retired racing greyhounds. Dr. LaFavor joined The Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury and became one of only two female chiropractors in Connecticut!
Times are changing and a lot more women are choosing chiropractic as their career choice. I don’t see why not, I think it’s a great time to be a woman chiropractor.
As many patients seek out female chiropractors for personal reasons, Dr. LaFavor believes more women pursuing this career path is for the best.
Approach to Care
Dr. LaFavor is passionate about serving anyone in her community seeking chiropractic care, including athletes, kids, pregnant women and the geriatric population. Depending on the patient’s condition, she can provide high velocity firm adjustments or gentler, low-force techniques to treat musculoskeletal problems, neck, joint and back pain.
A higher quality of life is achievable through chiropractic care, a proper diet and appropriate exercise.
The Chiropractic Health Center of Glastonbury team is committed to treating the underlying problem, not just the symptoms. They believe in treating the whole body, which helps patients maintain overall health and wellness in the long run.
If you feel better, you can move better and you can live better.
Dr. LaFavor often sees patients who work hard in their careers, which can take a toll on wellbeing. As the activities of daily living become more painful over time, many people are forced to give up the recreational activities they enjoy.
Chiropractic care can find the source of pain, ease discomfort and help these patients get back to their lives, pain-free. Dr. LaFavor finds it very rewarding when patients commit to care and reach a full recovery.
Positive patient testimonials and reviews are better than awards and recognition.
On a Personal Note
Dr. LaFavor describes herself as a very active, outdoorsy person. She enjoys running, cycling, skiing, scuba diving, hunting and fishing. Outside the office, she furthers her dedication to helping others by volunteering in her local community.
