.

Dr. Joanne Santiago is a chiropractic physician, who came to Avon, Connecticut in in 1984 after practicing Chiropractic in New Jersey for ten years with her parents and two brothers, who were also Chiropractors. She lives here in Avon, and her daughter Joelle is attending the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic, and will be 3rd generation of Chiropractors in the Santiago family. Dr. Santiago has been active in Chiropractic education, and has served on the New York Chiropractic College Board of Trustees. In addition she has been an examiner for the National Chiropractic Licensing Board. Dr. Santiago received a Bachelors degree in Zoology from Rutgers University, a Masters in Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Columbia Institute of Chiropractic. In addition, she holds a Diplomate in Chiropractic Sports Medicine, a Diplomate American Board of Chiropractic Internist, and has completed the hours to perform acupuncture. Dr Santiago provides conservative, gentle care to patients from new born to geriatrics.

Dr. Santiago uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning.  Dr. Santiago takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Santiago will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives. 

Dr. Santiago is active in her community and profession. She has served as past president of the Rotary of Avon Canton, and is a longtime member.  She is a member of the American Chiropractic Association, Council on Diagnosis and Internal Disorders, and the Connecticut Chiropractic Association. Currently Dr. Santiago serves as an officer on the Connecticut Chiropractic Association. Additionally, Dr. Santiago performs chiropractic evaluations on claims for insurance companies.
