PUTTING DOWN ROOTS Tom and Shadley Centofanti, co-owners of Roots Chiropractic at 302 Castle Shannon Boulevard, offer naturally healing chiropractic services that restore and rebalance the body without surgery or drugs. Both Tom and Shadley received their doctor of chiropractic degrees in February from Palmer College of Chiropractic. Both were kinesiology majors at Michigan State. Tom focuses on education and specifically customizes treatments for his patients. Shadley focuses on chiropractic services for families, children and pregnant women.

The name for Roots Chiropractic came as the couple both decided to put down roots in Mt. Lebanon, on Poplar Drive. They moved here also to be close to Shadley’s grandparents, who live on Orchard Drive.

Both Tom and Shadley like the idea of helping people naturally by realigning, rebalancing and restoring the body without drugs or surgery. Shadley had an injury to her lower back while at a soccer tournament in Sweden. This injury required chiropractic treatment sparking her interest in the field of chiropractic medicine. Tom initially thought his calling was physical therapy, but when he learned more about chiropractic medicine, he became more interested.
