History

Fit Vida Chiropractic opened its doors, in the middle of the COVID-19 Pandemic, on July 8, 2020. The owners of Fit Vida Chiropractic Dr. Thomas Canseco and Mrs. Katy Ogando had dreams of opening a practice that would integrate both of their backgrounds. Thinking that the Pandemic would only last a couple of months, this couple took a chance at an uphill battle. Following safety protocols and lots of virtual patient education workshops, this business took off. People’s response was great since they brought a new concept of “ Taking Charge of Your Own Health”. Unlike many Chiropractic centers, where the patient gets a 5 minute treatment and leaves, Fit Vida Chiropractic always has offered a comprehensive treatment plan. This includes personalized soft tissue therapy, physiotherapy modalities. specific stretches/exercises, and quality Chiropractic adjustments.

As of February 2023, Fit Vida Chiropractic has become a center for DOT/CDL examinations, this way making this service available to Berks County in Spanish and English.

Furthermore, as of recently, July 2023, Fit Vida Chiropractic has become part of Disc Centers of America. This is an organization that specializes in Non-Surgical Decompression treatment for disc conditions. This has elevated the standards of care at our facility. Now Fit Vida Chiropractic has the latest technology to treat musculoskeletal conditions.

Finally, Dr. Canseco states “Although we have gone through several changes, some things remain constant like treating everyone with respect and our commitment to give our patients the best treatment that is in our power. We are very grateful to the community of Berks County and surrounding, and we hope to continue to grow and serve you better.”

Meet Dr. Canseco

Clinical director / Co- founder & Chiropractor

Dr. Thomas Canseco has been in practice and treating patients since 2004. He specializes in bringing patients back to optimal health and wellbeing. At this facility, he treats back and neck pain, whiplash, sciatica, concussions, radiculopathy, neuropathy, and accident-related injuries.

He completed his bachelor’s in science degree with a Major in Biochemistry from SUNY Stony Brook, where he did his undergraduate thesis in Antibodies and Antigens molecular simulation. He realizes that all his co-workers suffered from severe back pain due to long hours sitting in a lab, and so did he. He visited a Chiropractor in Queens NY, and he was fascinated by the art and science behind this profession.

He immediately changed his plans from pursuing a Ph.D. in Biochemistry to pursuing a more rewarding career as a Chiropractor. 

He enrolled in New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls. He did his clinical hours at Dewey (Buffalo) NY area and volunteered treating seniors at The Salvation Army. After graduating with his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree (D.C.) he relocated to Philadelphia. He started to train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) at that time, and he continues to practice it but now as an Instructor at Berks County Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy.

Throughout his 20 years of being a Chiropractor and BJJ practitioner, Dr Canseco had the opportunity to treat world class grapplers (such as Jared Weiner & Jon Blank), and UFC fighters (Wilson Reis & Zu Anyanwu). Dr Canseco is also currently part of the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (FMCSA). Through comprehensive physical examinations he determines if interstate commercial motor vehicle drivers meet the FMCSA’ physical qualification, this way ensuring safety on the roads.

Dr. Thomas Canseco’s approach on Chiropractic is one that utilizes traditional chiropractic techniques (Adjustments and soft tissue therapy), combined with modern scientific thought and technology

(Accu-Spina Decompression). Dr. Canseco strives to help patients get back to their functional lifestyles, and to avoid spine surgery whenever possible.
