Meet Dr. Robert Pesale

Chiropractic When Others Couldn’t Help


When Dr. Pesale was a child, he would frequently experience headaches and blood pressure issues. Even after testing, nothing seemed to help…until he went to a chiropractor. “After two visits my blood pressure was normalized without any drugs or surgery.” That’s when he decided he wanted to become a chiropractor. Being able to help people without drugs or surgery drew him to the profession.

At 17 years old, Dr. Pesale enrolled in a highly competitive accelerated program that allowed him to graduate from the New York Institute of Technology in three years and head directly to chiropractic college.

I get to help people who have been turned away from the medical model with no hope.

Helping Others Stay Healthy

After attending Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, Dr. Pesale graduated cum laude in 1987. He remembers what it was like learning techniques designed by the founder of chiropractic care. It was exciting for him to learn “why” and “how” the body works the way it does, healing from the inside out.

Over two decades later, Dr. Pesale is just as dedicated to teaching others about getting and staying healthy as he was when he first graduated. He is now licensed to practice in Connecticut, New York and Maryland. Through his many years in practice, he’s considered an expert in natural approaches to the prevention and treatment of lower back pain, health and stress reduction, headaches, weight loss and nutrition.

Welcome! Ready to get started?


We know what it’s like to be new somewhere and how nice it is to know what to expect ahead of time. Below are some of our more commonly asked questions and the answers. Please give us a call so we can set up a time to meet you! (203) 386-9100

What does care cost?

To answer this, we always start by verifying your insurance coverage through a benefits check. Then, we’ll devise a treatment plan, explaining all out-of-pocket costs. We offer multiple payment plans to make sure care is accessible when you need it.

Will I be adjusted on my first visit?

Perhaps. This will depend on your condition, X-rays and examination. Most often, we adjust patients on their second visit. This way, we have time to review your X-rays before beginning care.

Can I be adjusted if I’ve had back surgery?

Being adjusted after surgery is determined on a case-by-case basis. We’ll discuss your surgery, how long ago it was, if there is hardware involved and if it’s cervical, lumbar or a fusion. These answers will help Dr. Pesale determine if chiropractic care is best for you.

Do adjustments hurt?

No. We take every measure to ensure you’re comfortable and our care is precise and effective. With a variety of chiropractic techniques available, Dr. Pesale will find which is best for you.

Stratford Auto Accident Injury Care

If you’ve recently been in a car accident, chiropractic care is an effective means for managing back pain, neck pain, whiplash-related pain and other health issues you may be living with. Thanks to our unique integrated approach to care, we help manage pain without the need for medication.

The Truth about Whiplash

Whiplash occurs when the force of a rear-impact auto accident “whips” your neck backward and forward. This force, which overstretches your ligaments, moves your cervical spine out of alignment, causing a serious impact on your health. Whiplash can cause chronic neck pain, back pain, headaches at the base of your skull, migraines, shoulder pain, stiffness, soreness and more. You may even have a difficult time sleeping at night or concentrating on work during the day.

Regardless, we understand how discouraging and frustrating auto accidents can be. That’s why we’re here.


A Chiropractor for Auto Accident Injuries

Chiropractor Dr. Pesale has specialized certifications in the areas of whiplash and spinal trauma, neurology, impairment ratings and neurophysiological testing. He’ll work with you to correct the underlying case of your pain through gentle chiropractic care. In addition, he has therapists who will show you additional stretches or exercises to enhance your healing.
