I use to get steroid shots for my back pain, but found over the years that was not a healthy alternative to taking medicine. Have know Dr Ficco for years, and decided to go a different route to relieve the back pain, somewhat skeptical, but after treatments, and finding a long term relief program, I believe that the right chiropractor is a healthier alternative. Dr Ficco offers high quality, knowledgeable treatments, and listens to his patients. We have even sent our sports active sons!

The experience with Dr. Ficco was very relaxing and comfortable. He was very knowledgeable and made me feel less nervous about getting my first alignment. Very kind and warm. I would highly recommend visiting!
in Suwanee, GA |
I initially went to Dr. Ficco for help with a recurring neck issue. I had been to other chiropractors over the years resulting in only temporary relief. Dr. Ficco immediately found the source of my pain, thoroughly explained the cause of the issue, and proceeded to successfully treat me. I have now been going to Dr. Ficco for over 10yrs for other issues as well as overall maintenance. I highly recommend !!
in Lawrenceville, GA |
I have been treated by Dr. Ficco in order to relieve pain triggered by a motor vehicle accident. This is my first experience visiting a chiropractor. I must say that he is exceptionally thorough in explaining the treatment plan and extremely knowledgeable in discussing and implementing industry pain relief methods. He also has great respect for the wellness and healing connection of exercise and diet as a means to holistic wellbeing. I would definitely refer him to others.

I've been going to Dr Ficco for years. I continue to go to him even though I've moved further away from his office location. He has a great bedside manner and understands my needs and concerns. I've had chronic back pain for years and he's helped me tremendously. I highly recommend him and his staff.

in Conyers, GA |
I have lived with constant back and neck pain for that past 10 years. I figured that this was just my burden to bare because I have scoliosis and a fused spine. A colleague recommended that I see Dr. Ficco. I have to admit that I was skeptical in the beginning, but after three months of therapy, I my neck & back feel 10 times better. I highly recommend Dr. Ficco to anyone who has the slightest pain or discomfort in their back or neck. I truly believe that he is a miracle worker!

Duluth, GA |
Had back issues due to "compensating" for a painful knee (arthritis). Dr Ficco did chiro adjustments to my spine and hip, and gave me stretches to do to gain strength. Definitely helped!
in Snellville, GA |
My wife and I have been patients of Dr Ficco for over 20 years. He has done more to improve my and especially my wife's health than any other doctors we have seen. My wife was told she needed back surgery. We agreed to try other options before having surgery. And, of course. we were told not to go to a chiropractor as they would make things worse. Under Dr. Ficco's care my wife weaned herself off of the prescribed medications she was taking and surgery was never done. Today, we go as needed
