Brandon Linatsas, D.C.
Dr. Brandon Linatsas was born in Marrietta, GA, while his father, Dr. David Linatsas attended Life Chiropractic College. Dr. Brandon, as his patients like to call him, moved with his family to Nashua at the age of one where his father founded Nashua Family Chiropractic. Dr. Brandon attended Nashua public schools and after graduating high school, attended Nashua Community College where he earned his Associate of Arts degree in Automotive Technology. While he still has a great passion for fixing cars, he realized that his love for chiropractic and helping others was his true calling.
In 2010, Dr. Brandon headed to the Bay Area of California to attend Life Chiropractic College West. While there, he was an active member of the Student International Chiropractic Association, Student American Chiropractic Association, World Congress of Chiropractic Students, Student International Federation of Chiropractic Organizations, and Delta Sigma Chi professional chiropractic fraternity. He graduated in September of 2013 with Clinical Honors.
The Nashua Family Chiropractic clinic and his father, David were a life-line source for chiropractic care and education. In 2015, Dr. Brandon was ecstatic to realize his life-long dream to join his father in practice as a doctor of chiropractic. Today Dr. Brandon owns and runs his family business as an integrated practice, while his father is enjoying retirement. Dr. Brandon lives an active lifestyle with his wife and two children and enjoys outdoor activities including skiing, hiking, camping, and soccer.
Vicki Irwin, L. Ac., Dipl. Ac.(NCCAOM)®
Vicki has been practicing in the healthcare field for over 20 years. Starting her career with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, she worked in the field for 15 years where she gained experience in medical, surgical, oncology (cancer), in-patient hospice care, and most recently in obstetrics and delivery. While Vicki had a wonderful career in nursing, she started to realize it was not a perfect fit for her.
Vicki’s draw to acupuncture happened almost upon accident. About ten years ago she found herself skeptical, sitting in the office of an acupuncturist for her own personal health issues that her doctors had been unable to manage well. She had decided to make the appointment as a last resort before a surgery she did not want to have. A year after receiving acupuncture, she no long required surgery, was off all of her medication, and had felt better than she had in a decade. This, Vicki describes, was the missing piece for her personally and professionally which led her to study acupuncture.
In 2011, Vicki acquired a Master’s Degree in Chinese Acupuncture Studies from the New England School of Acupuncture. Since then she has specialized becoming a Diplomate in Acupuncture with The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Vicki has prioritized safety in her practice by passing a National Clean Needle technique course. She is also a member of the NH Acupuncture and Asian Medicine Association.
Today Vicki maintains her NH State Acupuncture License as well as her license as a Registered Nurse in the State of Massachusetts. Most of all today she loves being able to integrate her nursing experience into her acupuncture practice.

Sarah Truchon, BA
Sarah is a New Hampshire native currently living in Amherst. Sarah attended high school at High Mowing School in Wilton, NH where she captained the lacrosse, basketball, and soccer teams. Sarah went on to attend the University of New Hampshire where she received a BA in Sociology with a minor in Spanish. She graduated summa cum laude in 2013 as a member of the Phi Beta Kappa and Alpha Kappa Delta honors societies.
Upon graduation, Sarah decided to pursue her lifelong passion of horseback riding and became a professional rider. After some time, Sarah then took a job working for an equestrian retail company, hoping to blend her love of horses with an office setting. Sarah started seeing Dr. Brandon in September of 2016 for severe back pain after a particularly bad fall off a horse. Sarah was quick to realize the value of Chiropractic care, as well as the amazing team Dr. Brandon has assembled in the office. When an opportunity to join the team arose, Sarah jumped at the chance and has been with Nashua Family Chiropractic since November 2017.
Outside of the office, Sarah enjoys riding and competing on her horse, Glori, as well as spending time with her family and her golden retriever, Penny.
