“I received a full scholarship to UNH for football and studied Business Admin. During my football career, I was inducted into both Belleville High School’s and The University of New Haven’s Hall of Fames, respectively, for football. Next, I went on to test my football talents in the Pros. In 1985, I was signed by the New England Patriots, but was unfortunately let go the following year. In 1986, I was picked up by the NY Giants and let go that same year as well. As fun as it was, playing linebacker for so many years took a toll on my body. During my football run, I was no stranger to physical therapy and rehab. Through my own therapies and sports rehabs, I was introduced to Chiropractic. Chiropractic became a part of my football rehab and I soon began to believe in its possibilities once my injuries began to heal. Chiropractic was a life saver for my body” expressed Dr. Racioppi.

Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that mainly deals with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. A chiropractor uses spinal adjustments, manipulation, and other techniques to manage patients’ health concerns, including neck pain and back pain. They aim to improve patients’ functionality and quality of life by properly aligning the body’s musculoskeletal structure and enabling the body to heal itself without the use of medication or surgery.
