Thank you for visiting! I hope we can help you with your health care needs and inspire you in the future.

I was born and raised in New York. I discovered chiropractic in 1979 after injuring my neck in a wrestling match. I was rushed to the hospital semi-paralyzed, placed in traction and highly medicated. After held in traction for four days, none of the doctors had any answers.

While in the hospital, my Uncle Sal took one look at me and told my parents, “He needs to see my chiropractor, Dr. Larry Markson.”

Within a matter of days, I started to feel again and continued my care through my teenage years (with many more sports injuries). One day my chiropractor asked, “What do you plan to do with your life?” In typical teenager fashion I answered, “Haven’t figured that out yet.” His response was, “You have calling, you need to be a Doctor of Chiropractic.”

I Decided to Become a Chiropractor

I went on to College at the University of South Florida and CW Post College. I received my bachelors in Biology and minor in Psychology. I continued to graduate school at Palmer College of Chiropractic, graduating in 1993. I received clinical internship and preceptorship awards, also receiving outstanding undergraduate and graduate awards from Delta Sigma Chi Fraternity of Chiropractic.

I practiced in New York for six months before meeting a chiropractor in Cheshire who was looking to retire. So I began private practice on December 3, 1993 and have been blessed and honored by the opportunity of assisting many families.

On a Personal Note…

Children in Cheshire are allowed to express their full potential with the help of Dr. Luigi.

I am happily married to my wonderful wife and best friend Anna Maria and we are blessed with six precious children, five daughters and a son.

I contribute back to my profession through my alumni association, assisting students to become better doctors. I am a current board member of the Connecticut Chiropractic Council and in 2005 was nominated to the board of the International Chiropractors Association.

I’ve been on mission trips, bringing chiropractic to those less fortunate and have lectured to numerous organizations, schools and peers spreading the message of the benefits of chiropractic in every aspect of their lives.

I enjoy soccer, lacrosse, running and have a passion for Ferrari automobiles. But the hobby I enjoy the most is feeding my mind with new things in my life, family and profession. I believe that health is a matter of choices; that we are a consciousness having a physical experience.

Thanks Uncle Sal!
