I have always been an athlete and truly enjoyed working in Sports Medicine.

In 1996, I earned my Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician status. I continue to treat students and recreational athletes as well as the "working athlete" as we call those injured on the job.

In addition, with my own growing family, I became involved with treating pregnant and early post partum women for the various muscle and joint problems that present during that very exciting phase of life.

This led to my involvement with Women & Infants Hospital. Which, in turn, led to my work with Cornelius O. "Skip" Granai III, MD, Director of the Program in Women's Oncology to credential the field of chiropractic at Women & Infants Hospital.

This opened the door for chiropractors to see and treat the program's oncology patients in the hospital. For the next 7 years I worked with the Oncology Department treating women with varied cancer diagnoses for neck and back pain of non cancer origin. The forward looking, holistic oriented doctors and administrators realized that "the patient has a right to more than one complaint" and welcomed my chiropractic practice to provide the care their patients needed in a safe and inclusive environment.

Today I act as a consultant to the program and consider treating women's health care problems an important and rewarding part of my practice.

Since 2007 a significant area of focus for me has been the emerging area of non surgical spinal decompression therapy. Many years ago, I saw chiropractic as a natural extension to my physical therapy background, I believe spinal decompression therapy is a natural fit with the conservative spinal care we do at Cowesett Chiropractic.

In fact anyone who fails to respond under chiropractic and physical therapy care should be directed toward this highly successful, non painful and safe form of treatment. We generally reserve this treatment for the most stubborn of cases, and it is certainly preferred to spinal injections and surgery, especially when considering the risk to benefit ratio.
