Chiropractor Chris Petracco D.C.
Dr. Chris was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. He received his chiropractic degree with Cum Laude honors from University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic in 2009. His undergraduate focus was in Sports Medicine at Norwich University in Vermont. He started his chiropractic career in Maryland and in 2010 moved to Massachusetts to join a group chiropractic office in Central Massachusetts. Dr. Chris is excited to bring Massachusetts Chiropractic and Performance Center to Central Mass and for the opportunity to help members of the community reach beyond their personal health goals!
Dr. Chris has completed extensive training in movement analysis and soft tissue healing. He is a certified Functional Movement Technique specialist who incorporates movement therapy to optimize human ability and athletic performance enhancement. He utilizes this knowledge with instrument assisted soft tissue techniques and kinesiology taping to optimize your potential. He has much experience working with athletes in helping them recover from injury and returning them to competition better and stronger.
Dr. Chris’ passion from the age of two was always hockey. Some of his greatest achievements include scoring the winning goal in the 2000 Ontario Junior ‘A’ Hockey Championship and winning the 2003 NCAA National Hockey Championship at Norwich University. Dr. Chris’ interest in Chiropractic started after a neck injury and concussion during his collegiate hockey days. Chiropractic care helped him recovery quickly from this injury. Until this life changing event, Dr. Chris was determined to play professional hockey in Europe. He began to research chiropractic and spent the year after undergraduate studies doing volunteer work with a chiropractor in Toronto. Dr. Chris loved that chiropractic allowed the body to heal itself and function more efficiently without the help of medicine.
As a chiropractor, Dr. Chris feels blessed everyday to be able to help others function better and increase their potential. Dr. Chris enjoys caring for the whole family and looks forward to being your trusted health care professional for years to come!
Dr. Chris and his wife Brittan live in Grafton, Massachusetts. They have two beautiful children, Giuliana and Luca.

What To Expect:
You will be asked to complete intake paperwork online prior to your visit. If you do not have internet, do not worry, you can do this at our office. Either way, we kindly ask you arrive 15-20 minutes prior to your initial visit. You will have a full evaluation of your complaint(s) and a systematic review of your medical history. The quality of your movement will be evaluated and an analysis of your gait will be performed. At the end of the evaluation, a report of the doctor’s findings will be outlined and most importantly, you will understand how we will address your problem(s). If the evaluation process warrants x-ray or MRI, your doctor will explain this to you. This detailed evaluation process sets the tone for your treatment plan. Finally, your consent will always be obtained before a treatment plan will commence. Now smile, take a deep breath; we are about to have fun while helping your reach your goals!
