Dr. Fitzthum's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Fitzthum "Healthcare has been the focus of my life since entering chiropractic college over 40 years ago. Seeking to broaden and deepen my training I entered medical school and found a passion for treating individuals with acute and chronic pain problems. After 20 years providing traditional medical pain management and finding that many individuals were little better off despite the high risk and high cost of treatment, I decided to change to a wellness model of pain management, helping people to become the best version of themselves under their circumstances."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fitzthum "My approach to pain management includes obtaining a larger picture of the individual by inquiring in depth not only about their pain issues, but about activity/rest cycles, nutritional practures, and mindset.  Pain is a complex event in the human nervous system, chronic pain even more so, and requires a multifaceted approach.  My emphasis is on wellness because pain negatively impacts all aspects of a person's life, and because being in the best health that one can achieve offers the best chance for recovery, no matter what other treatment is done."
