West Haven Chiropractor About Us

From infants to seniors, we care for patients of all ages!

Since 2004, Dr. Matthew Paterna and the doctors at Shoreline Family Chiropractic have offered healing chiropractic care to our community members. We’re located on the beautiful shore on the West Haven and Milford border, and work with patients of all ages, from babies just days old to people over 100. Anyone with a spine is an excellent candidate for chiropractic care. We find it gratifying that more and more people are looking at chiropractic as a way to get well and stay well.

Our Purpose

Because there are so many people who are sick and over-medicated in our country, our purpose is to inspire and educate as many people and families with the intention of improving their health and increasing their quality of life with safe, natural, effective chiropractic care.

Our Mission

First and foremost, we’re here to save lives. We recognize that there are many people in our community who are either sick or don’t know that they have other health care options available to them. We make it a priority to be a part of our community by educating and empowering our patients to make better health choices.

How We Take Care of Your Family

largeLogo It’s important to us that you feel you have a full understanding of how chiropractic helps you.
Put simply, chiropractors remove subluxations from your system. A subluxation is when one or more bones of your spine move out of position, creating pressure on your spinal nerves. The nerves then malfunction, interfering with signals that travel through them.

How are you affected by this interference? Your nervous system controls and coordinates all functions of your body. When signals can’t travel over your nerves properly because of interference, parts of your body won’t get the proper messages from the nerves and start to lose their function. In other words, some part of your body stops working properly.

It is the responsibility of a chiropractor to locate subluxations and give adjustments designed to correct them. We’re the only professionals who undergo years of training to be experts at correcting subluxations. Saturday appointments, on-site X-rays and free parking keep your visits convenient.
