About Me

As a teenager, my mother developed terrible pain in her arm and shoulder. Nothing the doctors did seemed to relieve the pain. Finally, they seemed to give up—telling my mother to live with the pain. But my mother was never a person to just give up. She went to a chiropractor and within weeks she was back to her old self. She no longer had to live with daily pain, ineffective medication or possible surgery. After living through this experience with my mother, I became fascinated by the body’s ability to heal itself. I decided to refocus my medical career from traditional medicine to chiropractic care.

After four years of pre-med at Boston University in Massachusetts, I enrolled at the Bridgeport Chiropractic School. After completing four years of graduate work at the Bridgeport Chiropractic and a one year internship at the university’s Bridgeport Clinic, I received a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. I spent several years working under experienced chiropractors before deciding to open my own practice, Healing Hands Chiropractic.

Like the science of chiropractic, which dates back to the 1800s, my practice has somewhat traditional values. In my clinic you aren’t just “Thursday, 10 am” because I feel that a personal connection with my patients is just as important as technical knowledge. Concerns about pain, the effect it has on a person’s life, and the ideal treatment plan are different for each patient. At Healing Hands Chiropractic, I take the time to communicate with each person, help them address their concerns, and educate them about preventing future problems. I feel extremely privileged to have patients who trust me and let me into their lives. There is no greater reward than helping my patients feel better and do better in their every day lives.

What Patients Are Saying About Healing Hands

  • - Joseph

    "I had bad back pain, and honestly thought I was disabled permanently. A couple of sessions with Kelly really did the trick. Brilliant chiropractor, and the masseuses there are good too."

  • -Scott

    "The day after my son's first visit with Dr. Cao, he was pain free! She asked to see Sean a couple weeks later to be sure his adjustments held and now he is completely fine. Should he, or his brothers, have any falls or injuries involving their backs and/or necks in the future our first stop will be to the chiropractor."

  • -Suzanne

    "Healing Hands is a very warm and inviting environment. I look forward to my visits there, because they are often the most relaxing part of my week. I highly recommend Healing Hands to anyone in need of help with back pain, but especially to pregnant women whose backs go through so much extra stress with the weight of pregnancy, and do not have a lot of other options."

  • -M. Tebo

    "I have been helped immensely by Dr. Kelly Cao. I was in a great deal of pain, never thought I would walk normal again, due to a slip and fall accident on black ice. I had a lot of problems ongoing from this fall. Dr. Cao always helps. No matter the pain, I do not take pain pills, I trust and believe in Dr. Cao's therapy."

  • -Jim

    I would highly recommend Dr. Cao to anyone that has pain. She is a fantastic Doctor. Unlike most doctors that I have seen in the past, she listens and then addresses the issue with a comprehensive approach which combines Chiropractic Adjustment and Medical Massage. The bottom line is.... It Works!

    I can't thank you enough Dr. Cao for relieving me of my pain!"

  • I've been seeing Dr. Cao for myself and thinking chiropractic adjustments would put an end to Sean's pain much quicker than traditional medicine's methods, I asked if she treats children. Thankfully, Dr. Cao does in fact treat children and my insurance covers the visits.

  • -Scott

    "The day after my son's first visit with Dr. Cao, he was pain free! She asked to see Sean a couple weeks later to be sure his adjustments held and now he is completely fine.

  • -John

    "I am extremely grateful to Dr. Cao, I thought I really did it this time. Dr. Cao is a absolute professional, she knows what she's doing and I would without hesitation recommend her to anyone and Wendy will make the insurance end if it a breeze."

  • -Ann

    "After a single visit, my symptoms were substantially improved. I was able to stop decongestants without a recurrence of vertigo. I was delighted to get relief without medications. When my symptoms re-appeared this August, I returned to Dr. Cao with the same results. In addition, Dr. Cao recommended a new stretch to add to my daily routine. I am eager to see if it provides even more relief!"

  • -Jessica 6/10

    "Seeing Dr. Cao was the best thing I did in my recovery and I owe it to her that I am back to my old self again, as Dr's didn't seem to be too optimistic that I would feel 100% again. Boy am I glad they were wrong!"

  • -Jeff

    Since visiting Healing Hands in the past 2 months, I have gotten back my full range of motion, my pain has subsided and I no longer wake up in the morning with stiffness in my back.
