Dr. Michael Russo, DC
Dr. Michael Russo grew up on Long Island, a graduate of Oceanside High School. Once in college he had planned to enter the health field but was unsure which discipline was right for him. Soon after starting he experienced an injury from an automobile accident that changed his life. This injury resulted in a lower back problem that complicated his everyday life so he sought the care of several physicians and underwent various treatments. His pain continued until he sought the care of a doctor of Chiropractic and experienced results that far outweighed any prior care. At that point his condition had improved and his professional course in life had been decided. Dr. Wendy Russo grew up in the metropolitan Detroit area where she received her bachelor of arts degree in Psychology from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. She has been a chiropractic patient since her early teens and comes from a "long line" of chiropractic patients in her family. Upon the advice of her family chiropractor, Dr. Walter Krygowski, she attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa which is the birthplace of chiropractic. Dr. Russo always knew she wanted a career in healthcare and growing up as a chiropractic patient made a career in chiropractic both a natural and logical choice.
