Headaches

Are you sick and tired of having headaches? Have you really tried everything only to find the headache back a few days later? Maybe it is time to try something really different. A new method that combines soothing massage of the neck and shoulders combined with a Chiropractic Specialty called Activator Methods could be the answer you have been looking for? The best part of our treatment for headaches and migraines is that we can help you get off the medications that pack on the weight. It is bad enough your head hurts but when you gain unwanted pounds from the medications you are prescribed. Bring us your MRI and let’s see if we can help make a difference.


Arthritis Pain

There are several types of arthritis. The most common form is osteoarthritis where the cartilage wears away. Arthritis is characterized by wearing away the joint space, pain in the joint and lack of proper mobility. Most people as they age experience the pain of arthritis in areas where they had some form of trauma earlier in life. The joint never fully heals properly and over time the joint becomes permanently damaged. The older we become the more the pain increases in that area.


Neck Pain

Here at Core Health Darien we will do a thorough exam to determine what caused your neck pain. We will find what caused you to have the neck pain during our exam which includes xrays and palpation. We then formulate which chiropractic treatment will offer you the best relief for your neck pain. We have found that using chiropractic care along with massage and physical therapy speeds the healing time for even the most chronic and severe cases of neck pain. Some patients will present with headaches and neck pain. These patients are quite happy to have their neck soreness disappear as their headaches go away. The spinal bones in the neck are often the cause of headaches when the spinal vertebra subluxate and create tension on the base of the brain. Chronic neck pain sufferers tend to have headaches.


Back Pain

A question we get all the time is, ” Who is the best doctor for low back pain? ” My answer is simple- the doctor who can help you the most! . What we feel is that it is really important to know what you can and cannot treat. We do an exceptional job of that here at Core Health in Darien.
Low back pain is a major health issue that will affect 4 out of 5 Americans at sometime in their lives. It is the second largest reason for missed work. It is a complex problem that is made worse from core muscle weakness, too much sitting and plain old ignorance about the causes of lower back pain. Core Health Darien has 25 years of experience treating lower back pain. We were the first office to offer non-surgical spinal decompression for lower back pain in Connecticut. This service along with outstanding chiropractic care means you will have the best opportunity to heal your lower back problems.

Dr. MaKay and his whole staff were excellent! I came in with a chronic lower back condition that’s bothered me for years and left feeling better than I ever have. On top of that I now know what it takes to keep it that way. I NEVER FELT as though I was being made to keep coming just to keep me paying, as I have felt other places. He stated he wouldn’t do that when we spoke day 1, and he didn’t. When we came to a point where I was feeling better and he felt that I should be in good shape to stop regular visits, the response was call us when you need us. Definitely will use in future (if needed) and would highly recommend. Thanks!

Customer Testimonials

I had horrible headaches before and now that i have been going there twice a week they are so much better. I am so grateful for my improved life because i don't have horrible headaches everyday anymore.


Brian McKay is a true healer who traces physical problems to their source before administering treatment. As such he exposes the underlying cause, not just the pain or discomfort that followed and sent the patient to him in the first place. Chiropractic treatment is only one of many elements he draws on. As such he has a holistic view of the body and its systems. The techniques he deploys are all aimed at allowing the body to heal itself.
I enthusiastically recommend both him and his excellent and deeply caring staff to our local community.


The first thing I need to say about Dr. McKay is he is much much more than a chiropractor. As a Chiropractor he is highly experienced and his office is has state of the art equipment and his staff is completely professional. Dr. McKay is actually a highly sensitive, intuitive, and kind healer. He certainly does everything that is needed to quickly resolve and correct whatever someone brings to him in terms of a problem, but his treatment is much much more. I started out 18 years ago with a chronic backache and after that was quickly resolved by working with Dr. McKay I truly became a different person. His work and his way of dealing with people is truly inspiring.


Dr Brian has been very helpful with the injury I came to him with. His entire staff are very friendly, professional and personable.


I visited Dr. McKay at Core Health after I had given up on the home-cure methods for back pain. After a short visit, my back felt immediately better and I haven't experienced pain since. I highly recommend that you visit Dr. McKay if you are tired of living in constant pain.


Dr. Mckay is a God send! I have 2 herniated disks and I have been pain free for 3 years since I've been going to his practice. My whole family goes to him and we've referred 6-7 friends who are also thrilled with practice. Dr. Mckay is a true lifesaver. I woould strongly recommend using him.


The treatments from Dr. Brian McKay and his team at Core Health Darien have been life changing and life affirming for me. The most important outcome has been the elimination of previously necessary pain medication to manage the multiple challenges of what I believed were inevitabilities of "normal aging". The by products of his guidance-Increased mobility, ability to continue with strength and conditioning regiments I had to reduce or eliminate, and better sleep are just some of the outcomes his treatments have delivered. I highly recommend anyone questioning the cause and effect of chronic pain and mobility issues to seek his guidance.
