The Origin of Connection Chiropractic

Dr. Pip Penrose signed the deal for Connection Chiropractic building the week before she shut down for 3 months for covid in March 2020. As a chiropractor she realized at an even deeper level how much she wanted to care for people in her new space. It had been a journey of reflection and searching for a space for 6 months, leading up to that 3 months out of practice. During those 3 months, she realized that being ripped away from so many relationships that had been ongoing for months and years was intensely painful, for her and the people in the practice. She talked to many of her patients throughout those months on the phone and online and realized the genuine connection she had. That and the realization that we cannot be well without connection and gave the name Connection Chiropractic! Because physical, physiological, neurological, emotional connections are absolutely essential to health!

Less than 2 years later, Dr. Pip and Dr. Karen connected, having no idea their lives were about to change. Dr. Pip’s family had the opportunity of a a lifetime to move north. And Dr. Karen was the perfect fit for this office, with her values of connection and relationships. Not mention also being an animal chiropractor was the final bonus.
