Talk explores natural solutions to back pain

The Wilton Family Y will present a program on Natural Solutions to Back Pain on Monday, Sept. 9, 11 a.m. in the Y’s Meeting House. The guest speaker will be Dr. Shan Twit.

More than 65 million Americans suffer from low back pain. Although many rely on prescription medications, this only treats the symptom and not the cause.

In this workshop Dr. Twit will discuss the various causes of lower back pain along with natural solutions to address the pain.

Dr. Twit graduated from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point in 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in biology. He then attended the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, where he earned his doctorate in chiropractic in 2004.

He practiced with his father in Wisconsin until 2008 before working as an associate doctor for 18 months in the Milwaukee area before deciding to move to Connecticut. Dr. Twit then opened up Stamford Chiropractic & Rehab Center in Stamford in 2010.
