1) Dr. Richard Carpenos, New England Spine and Disc
You want your chiropractor to be a passionate believer in what they do. Dr. Richard Carpenos is like that. Carpenos had one of those personal experiences that brought him around to his field. "Through my own disc problems in my back, to avoid surgery I started getting revolutionary chiropractic care," he says. "It changed my whole life." His passion for the treatment and for helping people in non-invasive ways has kept him engaged. "I love it more today than I did when I started. It's so rewarding." For whatever reason, many still arrive at chiropractic care only after all the other options have been exhausted, and that's something Carpenos would like to see change. "People will get an injection in their spine, they'll swallow a pill, they'll get an invasive procedure, and when all of that fails they'll come in sheepishly and say, 'What can you do?' That's what gets people sometimes to us: just sheer desperation. We'd like to be the step in between, before that." In part, that's because Carpenos believes we are self-healing, self-regulating creatures. And once the spine is aligned, he's seen many other ailments go away. Another way that Carpenos has found to accelerate our self-healing tendencies is by the use of lasers for non-surgical spinal decompression. Carpenos, who lost 42 pounds last year, is outspoken about the connection between girth and back problems, too. "We don't need any interference to heal, we need less interference," he says.391 Boston Post Road
