DID YOU KNOW?

In a bipartisan effort to improve research, prevention, diagnostics, and treatment for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases, U.S. Senators Susan Collins (ME) and Tina Smith (MN), introduced the Ticks: Identify, Control, and Knockout (TICK) Act.

The bill was recently signed into law! Named The Kay Hagan TICK Act, the law is aimed at improving the government’s response to Lyme and other tick-borne diseases. The TICK Act is named after former Senator Kay Hagan, who died in October due to Powassan virus, a tick-borne infection.

It provides $150 million for various activities related to Lyme and other vector-borne diseases. Read the full article

Physical and Integrative Medicine Associates

37 years ago Dr. Walter Ialacci started his practice in Windsor and hasn’t stopped since.

“Dr. Ialacci is a certified ‘Backsafe’ injury prevention specialist and has worked on projects with Pratt & Whitney, the United States post office, United Airlines, and numerous smaller area businesses. ‘The highest calling of a specialty is to effectively prevent what it treats.’” He has many high level post doctoral trainings and certifications. He’s on different associations and was proud to be the state representative for the American Association for professional ringside physicians for many years.

He and his incredibly friendly team have many services to offer at Physical and Integrative Medial Associates, LLC on 88 DayHill Road in Windsor. They accept insurance and work with you on costs. The various services not only include the regular spinal manipulations but, orthotics, physiotherapy, massage, decompression, many soft tissue techniques (like Graston and Active release technique), and more. My favorite is his extensive knowledge and ability in acupuncture. He has had many teachings from various doctors on the topic from both eastern and western philosophies. He has helped me on and off for decades. My pain and discomfort from my Lyme and other tickborne illnesses are helped and sometimes alleviated by his work. He also has cold laser therapy which is known to help Lyme patients as well.

The best thing is his listening spirit. Dr Ialacci listens to you and believes in how you feel. Unlike other docs and chiropractic services Dr I believes that Lyme is a disease that can hurt you for life if not taken care of early on. He doesn’t treat you like you’re crazy when the pain is in different spots on different occasions either. He is a champion for your desire for comfort when it’s hard to come by.

Not only am I hooked on his family like atmosphere and his complete caring mentality from every staff member there but he is someone that has testimonials from various doctors all over. Very few people have this in their repertoire but Dr Ialacci is special in a great way where he is recognized by even his peers as someone who does great work and who makes sure that his work is accessible to everyone.

Please go to his link on this page and make an appointment. Check out his services, testimonials and his history. You too will love those times of quiet, calm and healing.
