At Pomperaug Chiropractic & Holistic Center PC, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Southbury office.

Chiropractic Care

We provide spinal manipulation utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As Doctors of Chiropractic, Drs. Prado and Benson have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

Corrective Exercises

Exercises are often given to accompany chiropractic treatments. Specific exercises may be prescribed to aid in strengthening the muscles around the area of injury. The Doctor may or may not introduce exercises immediately.

Recent studies have shown that the best form of exercise to aid in the reduction of pain originating from the musculoskeletal system is regular aerobic exercise. Such a program should include exercises such as brisk walking, jogging & swimming, cycling or cross-country skiing., An aerobic exercise program should cause an elevation of your heart rate to approximately 80% of the recommended maximum for your age. This should be sustained for 30-40 minutes four times a week. If your lifestyle has lacked sufficient exercise, or if you have any history of cardiovascular disease, be sure to have a cardiovascular examination by a qualified physician before initiating such an exercise program.


Therapeutic Lifestyle Change Program - TLC

We have developed a comprehensive Lifestyle-change program we call the  Therapeutic Lifestyle Change or TLC program. This program uses laboratory testing, Bio-electric Impedance Analysis (BIA) and other data to tailor a  customized diet, exercise and stress management program to our patient's needs. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a  lifestyle that  prevents chronic disease and optimizes health. 

Nutritional Counseling

As part of our TLC program we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient´s return to optimal health.  Dr. Prado can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.


Mind-Body Medicine

As represented by our logo, the celtic triquetra, the body, mind and spirit are interconnected components of whole health. One's optimum health potential can only be reached when a "balance" exists between these three components. Pain and disease are often "symptoms" which results from imbalance in our lives.

Current research has proven the undeniable link between the human thought process, and the function of the body. More and more we hear of scientifically documented cases of "spontaneous remission" of disease sparked not by some high tech medical intervention but by a paradigmatic shift in one's own thought process. This verified link between mind and body has never been more apparent then with patients suffering from chronic pain syndromes.

We at Pomperaug Chiropractic have had a keen interest in the mind-body approach. We help patients to see how their levels of stress, anxiety, anger and fear often perpetuate a pain syndrome long after physical injury has healed.


To complement and enhance the healing effects of Drs. Prado and Benson, we at Pomperaug Chiropractic & Holistic Center PC provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures in addition to manipulation or adjustments of spinal and extremities:

  • Ultrasound
  • Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
  • Flexion-Distraction
