Located at 6 Maple St, Northboro Chiropractic is celebrating 31 years of excellent care for our spines and our overall health.

Tell us about your background and how Northboro Chiropractic Center came to be?

As a teenager and young adult, I had worked in nursing homes and long term care facilities. I loved patient care. At the same time, I was deeply concerned about the poor quality nutrition, over medicating and callous attitude that seemed to prevail in these facilities. I wanted to make a difference and It was apparent to me that these patients were not really getting well. I thought I could help by going into medical research.chrio-4317

I entered a pre-med program and was fascinated by human anatomy and physiology. During my last semester, a good friend of mine severely injured his lumbar spine. He asked me to drive him to a chiropractor that was near my college. As I helped him into the office, I was fascinated by the chiropractic educational posters that explained the power of healing from the inside-out through a healthy and highly functioning spinal column and nervous system. I witnessed my friend’s immediate and significant relief.

After learning about the art, science and philosophy of chiropractic care, I knew that I had found the answer to my purpose in life; providing natural and effective health care that truly gets sick and suffering people well by removing interference to their body’s ability to heal itself. Chiropractic is much more than a career to me. It is my true vocation, my life and my lifestyle. I am grateful every day that I serve my practice members, my staff, my friends and family through chiropractic care.

The addition of the incredibly compassionate, brilliant and talented Dr. Casey Gauthier in 2011 has allowed the Northboro Chiropractic Center to offer our services to more people.chrio-4269

What inspires you?

People especially the little people and all the bounty and beauty that nature offers.

What do you love about owning a small business?

The ability to truly make it an expression of my vision of health care

Why did you choose Northboro for your business location?

While an associate doctor in Worcester, a chiropractor who owned a small practice in the center of Northboro came to visit my boss and suggested that I buy his practice.  That was 1985 and the rest is history!!

Why do you feel that supporting local businesses is important?

Most importantly for me is that it builds a sense of community. I grew up in Lexington, MA where everyone knew everyone. To this day, it has an incredible downtown shopping area.  We knew all the owners and could literally do all our shopping there and see all our friends at the same time.

You’re celebrating 31 years. Congratulations!! What do you attribute this success to?

Passion for what we do, being constantly inspired by our practice members and the sheer joy of working with people to help them create a level of health that allows them to live their best life ever!
