Seven years after leaving Brookfield, Connecticut to go to college in upstate New York, young chiropractor Brian Conner returned home to find his calling.  Dr. Brian Conner, D.C., C.N.S, C.K.T.P., C.D.N., IFMCP joined Healthy Weighs Wellness Center, the practice that his mother, nutritionist Dr. Julie Conner, R.D., C.D.N., Ph.D, B.C.H.N, IFM-CP opened in Brookfield over two decades ago. From the very beginning, Brian worked at his family’s wellness center stocking shelves of supplements, greeting patients, and helping staff. During high school and college, he computerized the office and converted the center to electronic medical records. As a result of his efforts, the patients at the center are able to seek both traditional and gentle chiropractic care, nutrition counseling and a wide variety of integrative health services all under the same roof.

After graduating from Brookfield High School in 2006, Dr. Brian Conner did his undergraduate studies at SUNY Cortland as a Biology major in the Pre-chiropractic program. He received his Doctorate in Chiropractic at New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, New York.

Dr. Brian completed over 1300 hours of comprehensive clinical experiences and outpatient chiropractic services at a variety of medical centers throughout upstate New York including New York Chiropractic College Campus Health Center, Seneca Falls Health Center, St. John Fisher College Health Center in Rochester, and Monroe Community Hospital in Rochester.

Dr. Brian uses numerous soft tissue therapies when providing chiropractic services to his patients. He is Certified in Kinesio Taping and Active Release Technique (ART).  Dr. Brian is also a Certified Medical Examiner and has been extensively trained in DOT/CDL Physicals. In addition to traditional chiropractic care, his focus is gentle chiropractic. Because Dr. Brian wants all patients to feel comfortable seeking chiropractic services, he especially caters to those patients who are afraid to do so and want a very gentle approach to their care.

In 2014, Dr. Brian started coursework with the Institute for Functional Medicine to become a IFM Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner. After three years of intensive coursework and a case study, Dr. Brian is a Board Certification Eligible Functional Medicine Physician, and is presently awaiting the results of his board exam. .

In 2015, Dr. Brian started the process of becoming a Certified Nutrition Specialist. He enrolled at the University of Bridgeport to complete additional graduate coursework in nutrition and also completed a 1000 hour practicum in nutrition approved by the Certifying Board of Nutrition Specialists. Dr. Brian passed the C.N.S exam in 2016 and is now a Certified Nutrition Specialist and Certified Dietitian/Nutritionist. Dr. Brian provides Nutrition Counseling Services to his patients for a variety of medical nutrition problems.

Dr. Brian works very closely with Dr. Julie Conner to provide an integrative approach to a patient’s care.
