Chiropractor Old Saybrook CT Dr. Christopher Connaughty About Us

Chiropractor Christopher Connaughty D.C.

Dr. Connaughty learned about chiropractic health care through first-hand experience. Left unable to speak and partially paralyzed by a stroke at only 16, Dr. Connaughty worked his way back to health through intensive speech and physical therapy, and six months of chiropractic care. He then decided to make chiropractic health care his career.

After completing undergraduate training at St. John’s University and the University of Minnesota, Dr. Connaughty went on to receive a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa.

In 1987, he founded the Connaughty Chiropractic Center in Old Saybrook. Today, he is a member of the Connecticut Chiropractic Association and the American Chiropractic Association.

To provide his patients with the most up-to-date care possible, Dr. Connaughty frequently attends post-graduate seminars, and has completed a three-year program to earn an advanced degree in Industrial and Occupational Health. He also does ergonomic consulting for business and industries.

After nearly 30 years in practice, Dr. Connaughty’s continual pursuit of excellence has brought him to Active Release Technique (ART). He is very excited about his certification in ART and the treatment results he is getting with athletes and non-athletes alike.

Dr. Connaughty lives in Niantic with his wife, Dr. Lynn, who is also a chiropractor, and their 4 children; Austin, Daniel, Spencer and Abigail. His two eldest boys are pursuing careers in Chiropractic health care.
