Dr. Piana Adjusting the SCSU Rugby Team

Sports Chiropractic

Dr. Shane is a Sports Chiropractor in Torrington, CT. He has over 20 years of experience treating athletic injuries both in office and as a team physician to several elite sports organizations.

Chiropractic has been shown to improve athletic performance up to 13 percent over 6 weeks according to a study done by Dr. Anthony Lauro at Palmer College of Chiropractic.

Chiropractic adjustments keep the body in balance when sports have a tendency to alter structure and function. The nerve impulses carried from the brain to the muscles fire faster when they are pressure free, resulting in better athletic performance.

Dr. Shane treats the extremities as well to restore the athlete to game status quicker than drugs and surgery. He recommends pre-season physicals to assess the spine and joints,  allowing qualification of  full recovery when injured. Thermographic imaging of the full body is one of the best ways to assess this along with posture, range of motion, and spinal evaluation.

I Avoided Surgery With Chiropractic Care. ACL Tear. Dr. Penney insisted needed surgery. Dr. Piana corrected my knee problem 100%.
The greatest result we achieve happen Not through medication and surgery, but through proper performance, proper mechanics and balance.

Training on a crooked frame is like racing a car with a loose front end. The driver would not add chemicals to the gas, but would see his pit crew for an alignment.
