Meet the Doctors
Dr. Brian Cotter
Dr. Brian is promoted to providing you with optimal health and well-being. He is a licensed chiropractor who bases his practice on his “whole person approach”. This approach involves interviewing patients about their lifestyle during their course of treatment to find underlying causes of their discomfort, disturbance or disruption.
Dr. Serena Heard
Born in Saratoga Springs, NY Dr. Serena Heard values the outdoors and an active lifestyle. Competitive by nature, Dr. Serena maintained an athletic presence throughout high school playing volleyball, lacrosse, track, and competitive figure skating with a Synchronized Skating team. She continued to play volleyball and lacrosse while earning her Bachelors in Integrative health care at Sage College of Albany and Russell Sage College of Troy with a primary focus in human anatomy and nutrition. She decided to take her studies even further by earning her Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at New York Chiropractic College among the beautiful Finger Lakes region of NY.
In addition to requirements while pursuing her Doctor of Chiropractic degree, she continued to push the academic boundaries enrolling in courses and seminars to advance her manual skills with Sports Kinesiology Taping, ConnecTx Soft Tissue Therapy, Whole Foods Nutrition, attending courses through the Motion Palpation Institute and Prague school of rehabilitation.Dr. Serena has always had a passion for children growing up, working many summers as a camp counselor and volunteering for learn to skate programs in her area. With this love for kids she is an active member of the ICPA as she continues her education in prenatal and pediatrics including pediatric and prenatal nutrition, Pediatric DNS (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization) and Certified in Webster (prenatal) technique.
The Webster technique is a chiropractic therapy that works to balance the pelvis and sacrum while also reducing stress to the utero-sacral and round ligaments. When pelvic and sacral imbalances are corrected the common aches and pains of pregnancy are resolved and the baby is typically able to choose an optimal position for birth. Evidence has shown that women under prenatal chiropractic care report easier births, shorter labor times and lower rates of interventions.
Dr. Vito Giacalone
Dr. Vito Giacalone received his Doctorate from New York Chiropractic College in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of NY. He started his post-graduate work at Back to Health Chiropractic in 2014, where he was grateful to practice continuously ever since. 2020 played a banner year in the opportunity for change in the direction of the healthcare industry. During a time when mainstream media was rooting and pushing for science to continue to research for “cures,” Dr. Vito integrated himself into The Wellness Way in Sudbury, MA to bring awareness and education to patients. It is here that he is teaching others that when subjected to the right environment, healing will take place from within. His dream is to dispel the seemingly ubiquitous fear of germs, educate on the importance of fixing the immune system, and empowering others to take control of the environment to which they are subjected.
Prior to receiving his degree and licensure, Dr. Vito obtained a Masters of Music in Saxophone Performance from the New England Conservatory of Music. As such, he brings an additional niche to his chiropractic services, empathizing with the vast and expanding artistic community inherent to Massachusetts. He is passionate for healing, and credits his inspiration for becoming a chiropractor to his fascination with biomechanics, the nervous system, and their synergizing effects with proper diet, exercise, and regular chiropractic care. Dr. Vito’s goal is to fix your biochemistry and get you back on your feet while promoting optimal function of your brain-body connection.
