This is an update on our
daughter’s condition after being diagnosed with scoliosis
(25 degrees upper, 20 degrees lower curve) last summer. We
have more wonderful news that we wanted to share with
As we had mentioned in an earlier posting, while under Dr.
Fitzgerald’s care since October, a visit to our daughter’s
orthopedic doctor in December revealed a decrease in her
upper curve from 25 to 18 degrees (lower curve remained the
On our daughter’s most recent checkup in July to her
orthopedic doctor x-rays revealed another decrease, this
time in both of her curves. Her upper curve had changed from
18 to 14 degrees and lower curve from 20 to 12 degrees. We,
along with her doctor, were once again surprised and
couldn’t believe how much her spine has continued to
improve. He told us curves in a child as young as our
daughter (she’s now 9) usually never decrease, only
increase, because they still have a lot of growing to do..
Her doctor asked us what we have been doing to help our
daughter. We explained to him that she has been seeing a
chiropractor, Dr. Fitzgerald, and that through our faith and
the help of Dr.. Fitzgerald we credit our daughter’s
tremendous progress. Her doctor told us to continue exactly
what we are doing because it obviously is helping her. He
even had us schedule her next checkup in 1 year instead of
every 4-6 months because she is doing so well.
We can never thank Dr. Mike enough for taking such good care
of our daughter and getting her health back on the right
track. We owe you a lot, Dr. Mike, and greatly appreciate
everything you have done for our daughter.
WITH MUCH GRATITUDE,
Paul and Joann
I came to Dr Mike after
feeling like everything in my body (and life) had been shut
down. Dowsed with drugs that the medical docs decided to
experiment on me with, I felt like I was dying inside and
out. Ironically Dr Mike concluded that all my zones were out
(a rare feat for most people) and that although I needed
adjustments in the worst way, i would be fine.
That was 25 years ago and not only am I "fine" but not once
has a drug entered my body or thanks to Dr Mike, a fear
taken over me when my zones are out. He has helped me thru
opening the healing in every part of my body and never once
did I doubt he could.
But the real acid test was with my daughter. Would I have
the faith to put her in his hands and would he be able to
help her heal anything that came up? Well after 14 years,
the answers are YES and YES. From broken bones to sore
throats to emotional struggles, she and he have formed an
unbreakable bond. I totally credit Dr Mike with teaching my
daughter that she is and always will be HEALTHY no matter
what her body is doing. I will forever be indebted to him
for giving her that Truth of life,,,,what a gift. I shutter
to think what my daughter's life would have been like if she
were raised in the traditional fear based, drug induced
health care system of today. I hope that every child who is
somehow finds themselves in Dr Mike's office.
To this day my daughter has never had a vaccination or an
antibiotic and she is like many of Dr Mike's young patients,
told by so many that she is a walking specimen of health.
Her immune system has never been compromised by the above
and at the same time has been enhanced by many adjustments
and talks with Dr Mike. Having her adjusted from the time
she was 5 days old was the smartest thing this mother could
Every member of my family has had the pleasure of healing
with Dr Mike. And each one, no matter what the condition has
called him a "miracle worker." I call him one of the few
"Natural Workers." And I bless the day I became so sick that
I had to seek help from one of the greatest co creators in
healing of our time.
I have been sick for almost 2
years with weakness, dizziness and being nauseous. Went to
every specialist you can imagine, having blood tests and all
kinds of radiology tests. No one could help me. I was
introduced to Dr. Mike by very good friends of mine who have
been seeing him for years. I was very skeptical...long story
short...he is a miracle worker. Since seeing him I have
never felt so good, all my ailments are gone and I actually
feel better than I have felt in more than 2 years. Thank you
Dr. Mike you are a God send!
In August, our 8 year old
daughter was diagnosed with juvenile scoliosis. She had an S
curve of 25 degrees upper and 20 degrees lower curve. We
took her to see two orthopedic specialists. The first doctor
told us she would have to be braced immediately for 20 hours
a day to help stop the curves from progressing and
eventually would need surgery to correct the curves. He also
said the brace was no guarantee the curves wouldn't get
worse. We took her for a second opinion and were told
basically the same thing, except this doctor recommended
waiting until her curves got worse before being braced. We
decided to wait to have her braced and brought her to see
Dr. Fitzgerald in October. He assured us that he could help
our daughter and that she was going to be just fine. Well,
he was right! When we took our daughter to the doctor for
her 4 month follow-up checkup in December, the doctor told
us her upper curve had changed from 25 degrees to 18
degrees. The doctor was as surprised as we were and told us
if she continues the way she's going she will never have to
be braced. Just 2 months of chiropractic adjustments with
Dr. Mike every other week has changed the outcome of our
daughter's childhood. We can't thank Dr. Mike enough for all
he has done for our daughter and continues to do today.
THANK YOU DR. MIKE.

As a 39 year old woman who has been trying to become
pregnant for the last three years. I was seriously
questioning whether I would become pregnant. My husband and
I underwent various tests to determine the reason I was
unable to conceive, but all the tests came back normal.
Although there were those who suggested fertility drugs and
treatments, I did not want to follow that route because it
was against my beliefs.
During this period of time one of my friends urged me to
visit Dr. Fitzgerald. After hearing about her positive
experience I scheduled an appointment and made the journey
from Monmouth County to Totowa. It was well worth it!!! I am
now PREGNANT and, with the grace of God, the only lifestyle
change I made was one visit to Dr. Fitzgerald.
Thank you Dr. Fitzgerald
I am 29 years old. I started seeing Dr. Mike around the end
of May 2007. I was very jaundice and no one was sure
what was happening, I visited a couple specialists who ran
blood work after blood work, and I was just getting sicker.
I then was ordered ultrasounds, CT scans and MRI's which
then was discovered that I had a mass in my liver. I visited
a local surgical oncologist who referred me to Sloan
Kettering in New York. I had to have a temporary stent
placed in the bile duct because the mass was compressing it
and not allowing bile to drain. I met with the Doctor's at
Sloan and they ran more tests. I then received a call that
the mass was inoperable and I was then faced with the
decision to go through with a biopsy and then begin
radiation treatment to shrink the tumor, which I decided not
to do. Then my aunt found out about Dr Mike, so we went. I
was seeing him once a week, because I live right outside
Philadelphia, which is about 2.5 hour ride to Totowa, NJ.
He helped me release feelings I was keeping inside, and
showed me how these pent up feelings had affected my
health. Through a process of “Zone Adjustments”, and a
re-education, I started on the road back to health. I then
had to return for my stent to be removed on July 27th,
I was very nervous, but Dr. Mike assured me my “ZONES” were
clear. I went in for the procedure and the day prior had
another MRI. The doctor's were astonished they couldn't find
another reason to replace the stent. The MRI report showed
the liver was normal in size and configuration, and that
there was evidence of what looked like a residual tumor. Dr
Mike helped me with things and gave me my life back, and it
only took about 6 treatments.
I came to Dr. Mike at the recommendation of one
of his patients, Stephanie Reed, after a very bad infection left me
with severely swollen glands and tonsils. For weeks I had taken all
kinds of medicines, developed allergic reactions to them and was in
terrible pain. I was told by my physician that the only solution was
surgery. I was also warned that I could have complications
from the surgery because of the risk of infection coupled with the
fact that I had an allergy to antibiotics. When I first came to Dr.
Mike, he was so reassuring and patient. I immediately felt like I
was making progress. He listened to me and answered all of my
questions. He also took the time to explain the answers to me until
I felt comfortable. I was not used to this type of care from a
doctor and found myself asking him questions that my physicians
seemingly had no time to answer. I worked with Dr. Mike for quite
some time and little by little I began to heal, the swelling began
to subside and my physician was shocked that I was doing so much
better without having had surgery. I was discouraged at times, but
Dr. Mike was so positive and helpful that I really knew I would get
better. He really helped me to manage my stress level as well as my
illness. I am so grateful for that!
Thank you so much, Dr. Mike!!
Five long years of stressful situations, traumatic events, and
unwarranted loss prompted my body to simply give up on me. Suddenly,
I was face-to-face with symptoms I had never had before: restless
sleep, cold sweats, leg cramps, stiff neck, fluttering heart,
shallow breathing, headaches, clumps of hair in the drain after a
bath, rash on my face and neck, bruises, bleeding gums, brittle
nails, and blurred vision. Literally, I was one complete basket
case! Had I gone for a physical check up then, I would have been
prescribed hit-or-miss medical treatments and handfuls of pills.
Instead, I heeded the recommendation of a friend and visited Dr.
Mike. After only eight visits I felt renewed, restored and
finally—HEALTHY! Confident in my surge of energy and wellbeing, I
went for an overdue physical exam. Blood and urine tests revealed
NORMAL organ/system function. After sharing the overwhelming results
with me, my doctor’s
advice was—“Keep on doing what you’re doing!” I am! I am under Dr.
I am 50 years old. I started seeing Dr. Mike
about 6 months ago for back pain. The back pain dissappeared within
a month. I have continued to see Dr. Mike regularly because I am
experiencing great health for the first time in years. I was having
severe peri-menopause. My OB-GYN had suggested that I consider
hormone therapy. I had a cyst in my ovaries. I had stopped
menstruating for 6 months. I was exhausted all the time. I also
had frequent digestive problems. The cyst has dissolved on its
own. My menstrual cycle has been regular for the last 3 months. My
digestive problems have dissappeared. My mood swings have
improved. I feel well. Thanks, Dr. Mike, for your healing powers
While experiencing six months of intense daily
migraines a friend recommended Dr. Mike. I was a bit skeptical because
my previous chiropractic experiences were not helpful. I had had Xrays,
MRI's, MRA's, CT scans, bone density tests by my Internist, a
Neurologist, Vascular Surgeon and an Orthopedic specialist to determine
the reason for my pain. Within 4 visits to Dr. Mike the migraines had
subsided to the point that I was able to function in my day-to-day life.
When I told my physicians about the success with Dr. Mike's treatment
they agreed that I should continue to see Dr. Mike (not that I intended
to stop my treatments). So, if you are suffering from migraines or
headaches I strongly recommend seeing Dr. Mike. What do you have to
lose? Just relief from pain.
A truly greatful patient.
My family has been seeing Dr. Mike for several years.
So we are familiar with his practice. We have three boys and with that
come injuries. One afternoon our 7 yrs old son accidentally got kneed
near his eye. He complained of blurry vision and not being able to
focus. An hour later he began throwing up. This continues for some time.
He was not keeping anything down. We've had our experience with
Emergency rooms. They are not much for Emergencies unless you are
dying. The next day we called Dr.Mike and he was available to see us.
Dr. Mike took a look at our son and right way assured us that there is
nothing traumatic. He went ahead and cleared the zones to allow the body
to recuperate from the hit and vomiting. We visited Dr Mike later that
day. By the second visit my son was feeling better and was able to keep
liquids down. By the second day he was eating and playing. What we
realized is the body is amazing. We just need to allow it to heal
itself. With the understanding of Zone Healing and Concept Therapy our
body is healing faster and is healthier then before.
Thanks Dr. Mike.
I came to Dr. Mike having been referred by a friend. I had been
experiencing a chronic case of labyrinths/vertigo for over 2 months. The
episodes were frequent and at times severe. I had to go out on
disability since I was unable to drive and my job causes me to drive a
great deal. I was being treated by my regular MD as well as by an ENT
specialist, but the problem persisted. On my first visit to Dr. Mike, he
explained the 6 systems of the body and did an exam. It turns out that
the system that was most affected in me was the Muscular System which
just so happens to be the one responsible for balance and equilibrium. I
immediately felt that Dr. Mike was attuned to what was wrong with me and
able to directly address it. His treatments have made a big difference.
I am now back to work and no longer experiencing those frightening and
disconcerting episodes where everything seems to be spinning.
Thanks Dr Mike.
What do you do when part of your 2 year old's finger is cut off and the
surgeon only gives you a 5% chance of success if you sew the black, dead
skin back on and a 95% chance of having to go back 2 weeks later and
amputate the top of her finger? You call Dr. Mike and say, "Please help
us heal Sarah's finger". And that is exactly what he did.
Her finger needed to have circulation brought back. Dr. Mike's
adjustments did just that. He went out of his way to make sure that she
had her adjustments four times a week in order to heal her and keep a
mother's image of health intact. I also feel his true concern and love
for Sarah played an imperative role in her healing. When we went back to
the surgeon a few weeks later he exclaimed, "This is a miracle"!
Thank you Mike!

Over the past few years I have been seeing Dr. Mike for routine back
adjustments. I had been told by other medical professionals that I would
need cortisone injections to heal my ailing back-Not so- Dr. Mike has
done wonders through adjustments and exercise routines. Another issue
that had concerned me was development of kidney stones and once again
through Dr. Mike and his zone healing I have been able to prevent
formation of kidney stones. My wife as well -who was a non believer at
first had chronic complaints of lower right quadrant pain- I sent her to
see Dr. Mike and through various adjustments and discussions of how the
body heals this problem and other cyclical problems have been managed.
Thank You Dr. Mike for peace of mind and body!!!!
Sam S. and family
My Name is Allison, I am 28 and have had a jaw
problem called TMJ for 9 years. It first started right after I graduated
high school. I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled at once which were
impacted. Four days after the surgery I had a problem I could not
open my mouth wide, eat much, always in pain, when I ate it felt like
taking two sticks and rubbing them together. My jaw was stretched out
and was never the same again. I could barley eat any food at
all, unless it was put in a blender. I tried so many things,
I went to doctors, I had night guards, retainers, everything I tried
nothing seemed to work and it just left me in the worst pain possible.
(Never wear a retainer that you have to eat food with, it makes your
problem worse, and when you don't have to wear it anymore you have to
learn how to eat again w/ your own teeth) Lucky I was not a candidate
for surgery, never get it done. I read so many stories where
people go to get one problem fixed and then others appear and some
people are going on their 13th surgery. I suggest to anyone with TMJ to
buy a blender with a food processor, there are days you might be in a
lot of pain and it helps to give your muscles a rest trust me I went
through it all. Especially dentists, my pain was so bad I had novocaine
shots just to get my teeth cleaned. That was a wrong move because when
the novocaine wears off you feel where they poked you with the needle
and now your jaw is 10 times more painful and it is stuck for a week. If
you have to close your mouth and rest do so, if they can't or won't work
with you go some where else and where you are happy. And this past Oct
my Uncle Chuck took me to Dr. Mike and with in the first adjustment I
felt different especially in my mouth even my cheekbones, half of the
pain was gone and he didn't touch my jaw. Now no other chiropractors
gave me relief even going 3 x a week, each has their own way of working.
Now it is Jan. and I still go to Dr. Mike once a week and I would
say 80 - 90% of the pain is gone and every now and then I bite into
cookies, bagels and pizza ,potato chips, some of the foods I have not
ate in 9 years. There are some foods I still have trouble eating and if
I force it my jaw does get stuck for a few days, the food is worth it.
It is great to not have to cry from the pain, and stay at home when the
family goes out to dinner and enjoy myself. I am happy, I am in a better
mood, I feel good I want to eat laugh have a good time and Dr. Mike is
the best chiropractor. No matter what problem you have or you just feel
like you need an adjustment go to Dr. Mike and nobody else, he knows
what he is doing and will talk to you to for a little bit if you have
questions. And go when he tells you to go so it will work and you will
feel great. Thank You Dr. Mike for helping me with my jaw problem and
making me happy and feel great, I could do back flips if I could. I
can't wait for next week to get my next adjustment.

I've had allergies most of my life and going to
the doctor for shots was no longer helping me. I would get a shot in the
arm and it would come right back out. The doctor said there was nothing
more he could do for me. It was then I decided to try a chiropractor. DR
Mike has helped cure my allergies and I also developed a bad case of
poison ivy all over my body which Zone Therapy cured. Arthritis
started to bother me, but with a change in my eating habits, eating more
fruits and vegetables with less meat, bread, cake and sweets along with
biweekly adjustment it soon disappeared. I also developed an annoying
spot in the corner of my eye which was obstructing the vision in my one
eye. I went to the eye doctor he diagnosed a detached retina and he
wanted to do laser surgery, which I refused. DR Mike told me to take
bilberry along with my adjustments and said it would be cleared up in
about three months. Sure enough three months later the spot had
disappeared and my vision is restored. My most recent problem was with
shingles but with vitamins and zone adjustments I came through without
any pain. I do simple exercise every morning, along with walking,
vitamins and aloe Vera juice. NO DRUGS and I am a happy healthy 88 year
old still going strong. I don't take any medications and have been a
patient for 20 years.
Thank you Mike.
Looking for a professional opinion I asked Dr.
Mike if it was normal for my menstrual cycle to end so early, at 41. He
told me to make an appointment for an adjustment and miraculously, I
started menstruating the next day. I am not saying he is a miracle
worker, but I believe God works His healing hands through Dr. Mike. I
also had a problem with high blood pressure that was corrected by zone
therapy If you have a desire to be healed of your
infirmities I suggest you make an appointment with Dr. Mike to guide,
instruct and place his warm healing hand on your life.
Lake Hiawatha, NJ
TRUE STORY!--Through the past few years Dr. Mike
has really done wonders for me. His adjustments have improved my
over-all health as well as targeting on the problem areas of my neck and
back. I have written about my initial experiences when I was in such
excruciating pain with a frozenshoulder and Dr. Mike not only relieved
the pain but gave me the ability to resume all of my prior activities.
No other physician, accupuncturist, or chiropractor even came close to
helping me. I was about ready to give up when I discovered Dr. Mike.
And now--another revelation!
I was having my weekly adjustment when I mentioned to Dr. Mike that I
wish I could go off of my blood pressure medication. I've had to take it
for about six years. He said you don't need medication. I'll help you,
and you won't have to take it any longer. Wow! Would you believe that I
just had my pressure taken, and it went down--better than normal! I am
so excited because the side effects of the medication were really not
agreeing with me. Dr. Mike did it again! What can I say but thank you
and God bless!
I went for a mammography and was told that I had a
suspicious mass in my left breast. I made an appointment to see
Dr. Mike and he advised me to start the inner clean diet, which I did.
I continued to see him over this three month period. When I went
back for the follow-up visit, I knew that I was perfectly healthy, but I
went back to see it on film. When I got there I was told that
there was good news and that I could go home. As I started to ask
questions, I was told that maybe it was a shadow or an inflamed lymph
node. I never really received a straight answer.
I would like to thank Dr. Mike for being a huge part of my perfect
health and for being so kind, caring and confident about what he could
do for me. This whole experience has led me to embrace life and health
as I should.
My son, Kevin, who is 11 years old, has been under
Dr. Mike's care since he was weeks old. As he got older, his
regular visits became infrequent. Between the ages of 8 and 9, he
developed very bad allergies and a chronic cough. I wanted a quick
remedy, so I took him to one of the top allergists in the state, who
gave him a series of tests and diagnosed him with allergies and VCD
(vocal chord dysfunction). He prescribed four different medications and
a nebulizer treatment he had to do, for fifteen minutes, three times a
day. I thought he would be better in no time.
Needless to say, with all that medication, my son became lethargic.
As his condition was getting worse, the doctor was prescribing more.
The other recommendation was therapy for Kevin's vocal chords. So
I took him to St. Joseph's Hospital for therapy sessions, as well.
So now, my son was taking tons of medication and doing vocal chord
exercises three times a day.
We were very distraught over Kevin's worsening condition. To make
a long story short, we brought Kevin back to Dr. Mike and made the
commitment that needed to be made. Under Dr. Mike's care, he took
Kevin off all medication and was seeing him three times a week for a
period of time. Within a year's time, he no longer had VCD (a
throat specialist scoped his throat and said his vocal chords were fine)
and was even able to have a guinea pig (prior to Dr. Mike he was
allergic to animal fur).
Dr. Mike, my family is so grateful to you for all you have done for us.
We will all continue to be your patients, but most of all, we are proud
to be your HEALTHY friends.
We have recommended so many people to you and will continue to do so.
Gratefully yours, The Macchia family
I started seeing Dr Mike in August of 2003 and was
referred to him by my mom and brother, who had been seeing him regularly
for a few years. Without telling Dr Mike that I use to get
nauseous after meals, he was able to tell that I had digestion problems
just by one examination. Also, a few times a year, I would get
horrible colds and throat infections, which often led to high doses of
antibiotics. On top of all of that, I often experienced tension
headaches on a weekly basis.
Now, a year and a half later, I am happy to say that I haven't had a
cold since I have been seeing Dr Mike. If I run myself down, and feel a
cold coming on, I will go to Dr Mike instead of running to my physician
or popping cold medicine like I use to. My digestion problems have
diminished and I seldom get headaches.
Dr Mike, I just wanted to say how grateful I am to you for all you have
done for me and teaching me your optimistic approach on life.
(A very satisfied patient)
As mentioned in my earlier post, I have been bringing my daughter to Dr.
Mike since she was five days old. She is now almost five years
old, and is without a doubt the healthiest child I know. Over the
past four years, people have regularly asked me what I do to keep her in
such excellent health. Now that she has entered pre-school, I am
asked even more often, by both parents and teachers. Each time I
am asked, I tell them about Dr. Mike.
In October, a teacher noticed my daughter touching her ear, and
recommended that I get her on an antibiotic for what she perceived to be
an ear infection. I thanked her for her concern, but told her that
my daughter has never had either an ear infection or an antibiotic.
She said that such a thing was impossible. I explained that it was very
possible, and in fact quite normal for children who regularly see a
chiropractor, as my daughter does.
In November, the Director of my daughter's school approached me, and
asked how I keep my daughter so healthy. She noted that my
daughter was the only student in the entire school who had not yet
called out sick, and that it was very rare for students to avoid
catching illnesses from each other. Other parents who were nearby
were very interested to hear my response. I explained that we see
our chiropractor weekly, and have done so since my daughter was born.
They were all astounded, and I was told that seeing a chiropractor
couldn't have had anything to do with it, and that I was just very
lucky. I replied that I was certainly very lucky --lucky to have
our chiropractor, Dr. Mike, who helps me keep my daughter healthy.
I really wish the teachers and other parents would believe me when I
explain that Dr. Mike's chiropractic care is greatly responsible for my
daughter's excellent health. They are always so amazed that she is
such a healthy child. I am always amazed that a healthy child is
so unnecessarily rare.

In June 2003, My daughter "Hailee" was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia.
The bile in her liver was not able to come out because her bile duct and
gallbladder were shriveled to nothing. She was 2 1/2 months old
when diagnosed. At 3 months she had major surgery. The
surgeon took her small intestine and connected it to her liver.
The bile started flowing normally but she then had a lot of damage
already done to the liver. The prognosis would eventually in her
lifetime be a liver transplant.
I have been going to Dr. Mike for many years. He has help me
through a few major things in my life. So needless to say, after
surgery, he was the first one I called.
When Hailee's belly was healed, Dr. Mike started working on her
digestive zone. We would see him once a week. Every couple
of months we would also see her specialist. He was very negative
about her progress. I continued taking her to Dr. Mike and he
always reassured me that she was getting better.
15 months after her surgery we had another appointment with
Hailee'sspecialist. For the first time he looked at me with
surprise in his face and said "her liver is normal". We still
continue going to Dr. Mike every two weeks. And Hailee is doing
Dr. Mike I just want to say "Thank You" from the bottom of my
heart. You have helped me many of times but this was the big one!
Dear Dr. Mike,
It is a wonderful thing to enjoy
life in all it’s abundance. You and your colleague Dr. Pete have had
(and still have) such a profound impact on my life and I want to
thank you from my heart for all your teaching, healing and support.
About 15 months ago, I was referred to Dr. Pete. I had been
suffering from severe digestive disorder(ulcerative colitis) for 10
years. Throughout those years, all my efforts to get well resulted
in very little relief. I gave up on traditional western medicine
after 5 years and several hospital stays. The only treatment doctors
consistently mentioned, as a proven thing was to cut out my entire
colon. I was not ready to go that far and tried in the next 5 years
a plethora of alternative healing methods. Although I was able to
stay out of the hospital, my health deteriorated even more. In the
summer of 2002 after seeing a Gastroenterologist for my yearly
colonoscopy, he strongly discouraged me to keep fooling around with
alternative medicine and just face the inevitable, i.e. remove the
entire colon before it’s too late. After this visit with a MD I was
deeply depressed. Was I wrong to hope that there was a cure for my
symptoms? Even my wife, who stood by me all these years, pressured
me to do something. I thought I’ll give myself one more chance and
enrolled in a serious body and mind cleansing program in San Diego.
At the end of the first week of the 2 week program, my spirits were
high, but my body was so weak that I had to stop. I lost 28 pounds
in 6 days and weighed barely 110 pounds (my normal weight is 155). I
was dizzy, short of breath and could barely walk up a flight of
stairs. At the end of that week a guardian angel recommended Dr.
Pete. To my surprise I had never heard of Concept Therapy, Dr. Fleet
or Zone Healing, even though I considered myself and expert on
One month later I went to see Dr. Pete, not knowing what to expect.
What struck me most about this first encounter was his apparent lack
of doubt. There was no if, when, but, in case, etc. It was clear to
me that Dr. Pete had no doubt he could heal me, if I was ready and
willing to be healed. He recommended that I take the basic Concept
Therapy class with his colleague Dr. Mike in New Jersey. Little did
I know what was to unfold over the next 15 months. I could ramble on
for a long time about the step-by-step progress, but to spare you my
raving let me sum it up.
I feel, think and act completely healthy. My body has 95% healed. I
know that anybody regardless of their sickness/symptoms (no matter
how serious) can get well. And the best Doctors that I have
encountered to help one along this journey to health are Dr. Mike
Fitzgerald and Dr. Peter Goldman.
With lots of love and gratitude
I went to Dr. Mike’s office on the recommendation
of one of my friend’s who got great results working with him. My
main reason for seeing him was "back problems" mainly degenerative
Dr. Mike examined me and told me he would work on
my muscular zone. During the examination, I mentioned to him that I
had a lot of problems with dizziness and had trouble with my
balance. The medication I was taking was not helping at all. He
explained how my balancing out my muscular zone, my body would start
to function normally.
Since I have been coming in on regular basis ( 2 times a week), I
feel great! In one month my vertigo was completely gone! I have
never felt better. In fact I recently went to a reunion for my job
from which I have been retired from for five years and everyone
commented on how great I look. I feel 15 years younger and my body

Also, I never told Dr. Mike that I suffered from blood pressure
problems. My doctor’s could never get the pressure to stabilize. It
would either be too high or too low. Since getting my systems
balanced, the blood pressure has been perfect and Dr. Mike didn’t
even know I had a problem!
I tell many others to go to see Dr. Mike and would highly recommend
him to anyone.

The day before we were leaving for Florida, my son Phillip told me
that he was having problems hearing in his right ear. After vacation
I had to take him to an ENT for another problem. The Dr said that my
son was talking loudly and that he would like to have his hearing
evaluated. A quick test was done and a hearing deficit was noted.
The Dr suggested that we make an appointment with an audiologist to
see how much of a hearing loss he had in his right ear. The nurse
where he went to school did a hearing test and said that he had at
least a 25 decibel hearing loss in his right ear. As soon as I heard
the news, I thought my son would be wearing a hearing aid and his
life would never be the same. My mother called Dr Mike to see if he
could help him. Dr Mike said that he knew he could help him. My son
was taken to Dr Mike's that same night. Dr Mike evaluated my son and
said that he had a Zone 2 eliminative problem. Dr Mike was never
told what ear he was having a problem hearing with. Phillip was
adjusted three times before his appointment with the audiologist. He
was tested for over an hour by the audiologist. She said that she
didn't find anything wrong with his hearing. Three days later the Dr
called to say that Phillip's hearing was fine and that no further
treatment was needed. The first person that my Mother called was Dr
Mike. She told him that he had proven another Dr wrong again. I am
very pleased with my son's results from being adjusted by Dr Mike. I
recommend Dr Mike to everyone who is considering going to a
Chiropractor when they want the best Dr there is. My son's hearing
is preserved thanks to Dr Mike!
I would like to tell everyone how Dr. Mike helped a distraught
Mom more than once. I am now 39 years old and at age 37, I
became pregnant after 10 years of fertility treatments. In my
first trimester, I pinched a nerve in my neck, I couldn't
stand the pain and we all know you can't take anything. I went
to all kinds of medical doctors with no relief. I finally
tried my long time family chiropractor and he wouldn't touch me in
my condition. I was speaking to a friend who told me she used
Dr. Mike when she was pregnant, I called his office and was greeted
in the friendliest manner and I have become since then his biggest
While I was seeing Dr. Mike, he had a seminar
regarding how chiropractic works and how it is good for the whole
family, including infants! He also explained how getting your
zones cleared helps your everyday health and was much more than
being treated for a sore back. I found what he said to be very
true! I was feeling better and not getting sick everytime
someone sneezed in my direction like I usually did. What he
said made a lot of sense. I went home and informed my family
of what I learned and told them I thought it was a good idea to
start the baby there. But to my dismay, everyone freaked.
They started with the horror stories an so on. To stop the
arguments, I dropped it, but it still stayed in the back of my mind.
I gave birth to a wonderful baby girl.
When my daughter was a little over 2 she
started to complain of it being hot when she urinated. She
would beg me to change her all the time and to make it stop.
Being a first time Mom, I of course panicked. I took her to
her pediatrician who told me there was nothing wrong. I
searched the Internet only to scare myself something fierce. I
took her to my GYN who gave me a cream that made it worse. I
took her to another pediatrician who ran more tests and told me
there was nothing wrong and sent me to a urologist, who gave me
another cream that didn't seem to help. After 3 weeks of my
daughter in pain and me not sleeping or eating out of concern and
worry, I went to see Dr Mike for my appointment. He took
one look at me and asked me what was wrong. I told him of my
daughter's problem and how no doctor could help her. He said
let me work on her and see if I can help.
I agreed to let him work on her, overruling my
families objections. Within 1 week, she started complaining
less and less, in 2 weeks she complained maybe once or twice a day,
by the 3rd week no more complaints. I have my happy daughter
back!! The icing on the cake is she loves going to the office,
she can't wait to see Suzy and when she gets home she pretends to be
Dr. Mike and works on your spine.
I hope my story opens people's eyes to what
Dr. Mike has to say and does in his work, I know, I believe
and trust him and can not thank him enough for the help he is giving
to my daughter and I.
Dr. Mike has been my Primary Health Provider for over 15 years. He has
helped me to maintain health and balance in my life, and has continually
been a source of Motivation for me.
He has inspired and enlightened me in many ways that have proven to be
invaluable to my health and personal confidence.
Dr. Fitzgerald had encouraged me to take responsibility for my own
health and to be a meaningful participant in the healing process and in
the maintenance of health. His treatments, teaching and philosophy have
helped me to overcome and recover from whatever obstacles have come my
way including a growth in my throat that was the size of an orange, and
a severe injury to my tailbone, both of which I am pleased to report are
In both of these instances, it is my strong belief that other health
practitioners might have prescribed very invasive remedies. I am
ecstatic that Dr. Fitzgerald aided me in healing these issues
In summary, I implicitly trust Dr. Mike Fitzgerald with my health, he is
very talented, and has proven himself to be completely honest and
reliable. He is also a great listener and possesses tremendous
A Very Satisfied Patient!
I have had the pleasure of being a patient of Dr. Mike for the past
14 years. Because of his healing abilities, or should I say the
power he gives a patient to heal themselves, my family and I have
lived without antibiotics or any other medicine. Through his
adjustments my children have quickly been cured of what the medical
world labels as strep throat, double ear infections and other
infections or viruses. I am most amazed by his latest accomplishment
by curing a skin condition that my 13 year old contracted in the
fall called molluscum virus. For a well rounded, well liked teenager
having your stomach, legs, arms and back slowly become covered in
what looks like disgusting warts could be disastrous. When my
pediatrician told me there was no cure besides having them burned
off or just wait for them to heal in one to five years, I thought,
why not Dr. Mike?? Well you can probably guess the ending, after one
visit they started to dry up, and after 4 visits they were
completely healed. My family and I owe our good health to this
wonderful Dr. as he has kept us both physically and emotionally
healthy without any medication at all!! Thank you, Dr. Mike!!!
I started having problem with my stomach in seventh
grade (that would be age 12 or 13). I would wake up in the morning
nauseous and not be able to eat anything for breakfast. At least once a
week, I would actually throw up from the nauseousness. My mother took me
to my regular primary care physician to get it checked out. I then
proceeded to see Gastro Specialist and had Upper G.I. tests. I was
finally told that there was nothing showing up in all of the tests I had
that indicated an ulcer or any other problem with my stomach. But I
still had symptoms. They seemed to level off and almost stop during a
lot of my high school years and most of college. But three years ago, I
graduated college and got a job that was very stressful. I started to
have all of the same problems I has as a teenager. I went to my primary
care physician again to see if there was something that could be done. I
was given medication that made me feel more sick to my stomach that I
was before. And my doctor recommended, AGAIN, that I go to a Gastro
specialist. The thought of all of those tests again made me cringe!! I
hated them when I was a teenager and I knew I did not want to go through
all of that again if there was nothing coming up wrong in any of them.
My physician also suggested I see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist
because he believed I had post nasal drip and that was causing me to
swallow during the night causing the nauseousness in the morning. The
Ear, Nose & Throat doctor recommended deviated septum surgery!! I was
deathly afraid of any kind of surgery!!
My brother, Jeff, told me that he thought I should try going to see Dr.
Mike. I had known that a lot of my family had been seeing him for years.
It just never really occurred to me to go for my stomach. I took my
brother's advice and started going to Dr. Mike a little over two years
ago. During my first appointment, he explained everything to me and
during the first months I was going, he invited me to a seminar where I
could learn more about everything. I started to adjust my diet a little
and had adjustments once or twice a week. Gradually, I had less and less
symptoms and had less nauseousness in the mornings. I started being able
to eat before leaving for work in the morning because I was not so sick
to my stomach.
I still, occasionally have trouble. I believe a lot of what was
originally wrong was stress related. And, on the rare occasion, these
days when my stomach does act up, it is when I am under extreme stress.
I have to say that since the New Year, (It is April now) I have not had
a problem in the morning. I still have adjustments on a weekly basis.
After all of this, I am very glad I listened to my brother and went to
see Dr. Mike. I avoided most likely, needless surgery on my nose as well
as useless and unpleasant tests.
While out to dinner one night with my friend Deb, I got sick to my
stomach. I have been getting sick a lot for the past 2 years. I had
been to many different types of doctors. I even went to NYC and paid
$1200 for a body scan, convinced that something was seriously wrong
with me. She said I really should go with her to see Dr. Mike. I
couldn't see how a chiropractor could help me with something not
having to do with my back. I had already been seeing a chiropractor
for a previous injury for almost 3 years. My lower back and neck
still constantly hurt. I just dealt with it as your normal everyday
aches and pains. I figured I had nothing to lose. The following week
I went to Dr. Mike with Deb. On the way she explained about these
"zones". When I went in to the office I was surprised. There weren't
any big contraptions or giant massagers told Dr. Mike a little about
what was going on with myself. I was amazed by how feeling the back
of my head, he was basically able to tell me the things that were
bothering me! Now, no doctor I've been to before had ever done that!
Even the adjustment was nothing like I had expected. Painless! And I
felt instantly relieved. Dr. Mike suggested that I have an
adjustment twice a week. He also said that I should read the chapter
on anger in Rays Of The Dawn. I also stayed for the class that
night, too. In the first few weeks of therapy I was having a hard
time getting to the office because of the weather and my new job.
Even so, having only 3 or 4 adjustments I felt and saw a change for
the better in my health! My back and neck no longer hurt on a daily
basis. Even more amazing to me is that my stomach problems are a lot
less frequent. I really feel relief and I'm not just flying around
on pain killers! I plan to continue to follow the laws and continue
therapy so I can just finally have my good health back. Thanks Deb
and Thank you Dr. Mike!
P.S. I was also presently surprised that my
menstrual cycle started coming back with regularity which has been a
problem of mine for years, and I have never even mentioned this
problem to Dr. Mike either!!
Last September, I was given the choice of having a golf-ball size
lumpectomy done to remove a benign fibroadenoma tumor with abnormal
hyperplasia cells from my breast or try Zone Chiropractic Therapy. After
14 years in Concept Therapy, surgery just did not feel right. I knew
that even if I had the surgery, I would still have to find the original
cause of the benign tumor and abnormal cells. I decided to go to Dr.
Mike Fitzgerald's office and start Zone Chiropractic Therapy. Dr. Mike
and I agreed on a course of action including going to his office for
Zone Therapy adjustments to bring my six health systems back into
harmony. He started with the Circulatory System since this was the
system that he found to be causing my circulatory disturbance. The
oxygen supply to every cell needed to be stimulated in order to create
healthy cells and at the same time, the lymphatic system needed to be
purged of all of its poisons and toxins. His prescription to restore my
health was to have adjustments twice a week, go on the Inner Klean Diet,
drink more fresh juices, and read and apply the Laws of the Body and
Soul in the Rays of the Dawn book to my life even more diligently. I
needed to change my vibration from the negative thoughts which helped to
create this disturbance to the positive. After diligently following Dr.
Mike's regime to health (which included driving 4 hours round trip twice
a week for the Zone Therapy adjustments), I am happy to report that the
Zone Therapy treatments completely reversed the surgeon's diagnosis. She
said, after reading the latest mammogram report and performing an
ultrasound herself in January, 2003, that "you cannot go after something
that is no longer there!" I am still continuing to go to Dr. Mike once a
week as I want all my zones cleared. I want to stress that if you want
to reverse a diagnosis of disease, accept the responsibility of the
health regime prescribed by Dr. Mike through Zone Chiropractic Therapy
and take the action steps necessary to achieve the diagnosis of health.
I have been a patient of Dr. Mike’s since 1991 and involved with Concept
Therapy since 1996. When I first came to Dr. Mike, upon a friend’s
recommendation, I was skeptical but open for a change. I had terrible
allergies and was sick constantly as a child and into my adult years. At
first, I was leery, but as time passed I realized I was beginning to
feel healthier and better that I had in years. My family and friends, in
the beginning, thought I was crazy for not going to a medical doctor
when I became ill; however, as time passed and they saw the difference
they began to accept this new change in my life. Especially my mom, a
nurse, had the most difficult time understanding this new philosophy and
treatment. As a child, she was constantly taking me to the medical
doctors or the emergency room for treatments. This was hard for her to
accept, but now she has seen a huge change in me. I’m Healthy now. The
funny thing is now when something isn’t right the first thing she will
ask is "Is Dr. Mike open and when can I bring you in for an
Years later I now totally believe in chiropractic care for my
well-being. Speaking with Dr. Mike, reading, attending Rays of the Dawn
and Concept Therapy classes has changed my philosophy about life. For
me, I realize the importance of the body, mind and soul connection for a
healthy lifestyle. My attitude toward health involves seeing Dr. Mike at
least once a week for zone adjustments.
I started seeing Dr. Mike about 9 months ago. I had severe hair loss due
to a condition called Lichen Planapolaris. The cause of this condition
is unknown . The symptoms are severe hair loss and an inflamed, itchy
scalp. There is no treatment, but the symptoms can be controlled
with medication. As you can well imagine, the condition was devastating
both on an emotional as well as physical level. Dr Mike was wonderful.
He is understanding and seems to have an intuitive sense as to what
words and treatment will be the
Dr Mike introduced me to concept therapy. The concepts I learned and
continue to learn have been enlightening to me and have helped me to see
how much I can influence my own good health. My condition is much
better. I even have some hair growth! I will be forever grateful to Dr.
Mike for his encouragement and his help in my good health.
The day I had my first consultation with Dr. Mike I had a list of
"coulds and could nots" for him to follow. I had been the patient of
another chiropractor and my experiences left me skeptical and
untrusting. At the time the only reason I was continuing to get
adjustments was because of a slip disc in my lower back that would leave
me almost paralyzed and recuperation became longer and more difficult
each time my back went out. Dr. Mike listened and worked with me.
His methods are extremely gentle and caring. Over time he gained my
trust and I let go of the list I originally held fast to. His genuine
interest in my medical ailments and mental state of health have
contributed greatly to my overall health.
The Concept Therapy philosophy that Dr. Mike teaches has opened my mind
and taught me about myself and life. We all have 'issues' to deal with
and it is an amazing revelation to understand how the mind directly
affects the body. I have proven this to myself numerous times and
ways through the classes he provides. The evolution of life is hard
work; but with the guidance and application of the teachings of this
philosophy any one can improve their lives beyond comprehension.
Thank you Dr. Mike for providing me the tools I use to continue to

Approximately 4 1/2 years ago my husband and I were seeking a healthier
and more natural way of life for our family.
Our youngest son wound up in the hospital, at 8 mos. old, with chronic
asthma. He was prescribed a series of medicines for the next 5
months. As a result of the medications, he was continuosly
vomiting, never able to hold down any food or liquids. We voiced
our concerns to his pulmanologist, who in turn informed us this was
merely a side effect of the medicine he was on, NEVER seeing that our
son was deteriorating before our eyes. That's when we knew there
had to be a better way to treat his dis-ease.
Well, the old saying goes, "seek and ye shall find." And we did.
A friend had recommended me to Dr. Mike right before my son's first
birthday. My husband and I had NEVER been to a chiropractor before
but everything told us to trust our intuition and bring our son to him.
I called the day after my friend gave me Dr. Mike's # and the friendly
voice on the other end, Suzy, now a very good friend of my family, gave
me an appointment immediately. It was the absolute best thing we
could have ever done for the life of our child and our family!
After his first adjustment, Dr. Mike assured us, as a family, that
Matthew would be cured of his asthma and this was the beginning of a
healthier life for him and our family as a whole. Dr. Mike never
claimed to be a miracle worker but promised to work together WITH our
family to accomplish a dis-ease free life. He helped us to
understand what led up to his asthma and the steps to take to help him
through this difficult period. He put the power and trust in our
hands and we thank him for that.
One of the most suprising things that happened after that first
adjustment was that Matthew fell asleep in the car, something he had
never done before, we knew he was finally going to be O.K. and that we
had made the right decision.
One by one we all started getting adjusted. We have 3 boys, ages
14, 6 and Matthew is now a healthy 5 year old. The 2 younger ones
have never had an ear infection. With our oldest we were definitely one
of those parents who always ran to the dr. to put our son on antibiotics
to ease any pain. Now whenever they or we have any discomfort in
our bodies it is quickly alleviated by the TRUST in our family health
care provider Dr. Mike, and his adjustments.
We now have a 4th son on the way and are totally confident that this
child will lead a very healthy and drug-free life, thanks to Dr. Mike
and his educating our family on TRUE HEALTH and our birthright to it.
With love and peace in our hearts,
Ranae and John Roesch & boys...
I started to see Dr. Mike in January of 1997 and my life has changed

We originally came to the Fitzgerald Chiropractic center looking for
holistic health care for our children. The health of your children was
unmanageable with pediatricians prescribing antibitotics as a form of
preventive medicine as well as a cure. This pracive, unbeknownst to us
set up our children for other illnesses due to a weakened immune system.
Some examples of conditions that we were dealing with were earaches
(initially treated with surgery), high fevers (treated with Tylenol),
urninary reflux (surgery was recommended).
In August of 1996, my wife and I were discussing with my wife's friend,
how we felt trapped adn helpless in managing our children's health
problems. This friend referred us to Dr. Michael Fitzgerald. Since then,
have been actively involved as partners with Dr. Fitzgerald in creating
health our family now has. This partnership has required a commitment on
part to learn, study and apply the principles which create health. Our
efforts have been well rewarded with a freedom from the allopathic
which are in prevalent use today.
If you are considering an alternative to allopathic treatements, and are
willing to be actively involved in the creation of your family's health,
then we suggest that you come to the Fitzgerald Chiropractic Center.

Since my teenage years, I suffered from migraine headaches and vertigo.
The nauseating pain and dizziness often left me with no option but to

classes, and as
an adult, I often missed work. Years passed. I managed to
college, work and marry, all through an unsettling haze of pain and
I visited countless doctors seeking relief. I was given various
medications - to control pain, to alleviate dizziness, to encourage
but they didn't seem to help. I was told it was stress. I
was told it was
all in my head. I was told I was allergic to everything from

relieve them through adjustments, nutritional advice, herbal supplements
any combination of the three.
I saw Dr. Mike throughout my pregnancy, and have brought my daughter
regularly since she was five days old. She was born with her
head and neck
very obviously bent to her left. The hospital pediatrician
would need a brace and possibly a surgery. Dr. Mike adjusted her
taught us some basic exercises, which we did daily, and by the age of
she had a perfectly straight neck and spine with no additional medical
treatment. She is now almost two, and is one of the healthiest
have ever seen. On the rare occasions when she does not feel well,
her to see Dr. Mike, knowing that she will be treated naturally, without
need for medications which could be toxic to her little body.
Dr. Mike has given us excellent parenting advice for everything from
teething to diaper rash to temper tantrums.
Overall, I find Dr. Mike to be extremely knowledgeable of the human body
and natural ways to keep it functioning properly. I recommend him
everyone, for everything. I always point out that chiropractic is
for back pain - I absolutely credit Dr. Mike with my good health and
well-being. The results of Dr. Mike's chiropractic care, for myself, my
husband, my daughter, and everyone we have referred to him, have been
nothing short of amazing.

My name is Laurie and I am 35 years old. When I was in fifth grade, I
getting migraine headaches. For years afterwards, the only choices I had
to let the migraine run its course or pay a visit to the hospital
room for a Demorol shot. During the planning of my wedding in 1990, my
headaches became more frequent and intense. My fiance Angelo suggested a
chiropractor. On my first visit to Dr. Mike Fitzgerald, he found
in my spine that were connected to my migraines. Finally I had found a
for the migraines and an alternative to pain killers for treatment. The
part is the adjustments take no longer than a few minutes each visit. I
now handle any migraine with this natural alternative along with a dose
tylenol if necessary. My husband and 3 sons have also been receiving
chiropractic care for the last year. My youngest son is one year old.
we have been keeping up with our routine adjustments, we have not had to
to any other doctor for any sicknesses. It has been a relief not to sit
waiting room full of sick people for 2 hours only to get another
for antibiotics. Chiropractic care has kept my sons in excellent
for playing sports and they get a kick out of hearing their body making
"popcorn" noises when Dr. Fitzgerald does an adjustment.
The Palatucci Family
Over the years I have sounded a little prejudiced about Fitzgerald
Family Chiropractic. But given the circumstances, I feel I have had a
right to be! I have benefited tremendously by "Dr. Mike" since 1986.
Since then, I have seen no other doctor, taken no medication, dealt with
no condition that we could not heal together and only grown stronger in
the faith of natural healing and "Dr. Mike" each year. If I have to say
what the greatest benefit has been, it would be the less and less fear
(and more and more faith) I feel about health each year. Dr. Mike has
helped me heal the FEAR about health conditions that plague every one I
know. I actually feel a great degree of peace about health, REGARDLESS
of what is manifesting in my body. That alone is worth a million dollars
to me. I don't believe anyone really knows how much health fears
literally kill their spirits and ultimately, I now know, kill their
bodies. What we need is a "cure" for health FEARS, not health
conditions. And without a doubt, Dr. Mike is that cure.
Dr. Mike has spent over 20 years studying HEALTH (most doctors stop at
studying disease). Talking with him for almost 17 years, I know he knows
the connection of mind/body and healing power better than any doctor I
know or have heard about. Dr. Mike not only understands how the central
nervous system connects with every cell of the body, and ultimately
every health problem the body could manifest, but he can help us
understand what the emotional "stress" is behind it. Too many doctors
label our conditions as "stress related". Well, I could have told them
that! What we as "stressful" people need is to know what the stress is,
and more importantly how to release it. I dare say few doctors today can
really help one reveal or heal their stress. And since every condition
in the body has some connection with us on the inside, without this
understanding, do they really every help us heal. Well, that is a
question for each to answer, but for me, Dr. Mike provides that missing
"peace" and I see the fear and frustration that I used to have with
health problems, disappearing.
Now as an adult, it is not so strange for a woman to be taking such a
natural, non invasive and truly healing approach to health. What is a
bit "unorthodox" is that my 7 year old daughter has the same approach!
She has never been to any other doctor but Dr. Mike. She has never had a
vaccine or taken a drug - no, not even 'children's Tylenol!' And I would
say - without prejudice - that she is the healthiest kid I know. She has
been a regular patient of Dr. Mike since the week she was born. His
chiropractic adjustments along with his incredible connection with
children is the main reason my daughter is and stays so well. What has
amazed me over the years is that even when she does experience a health
condition, she heals so fast and so completely that I know her healing
power is working at top capacity. I also have the sad opportunity to
watch so many children in my daughter's school who are filled with
health fears and toxic medications that I am no longer surprised that
they look and feel so sick. I want to tell their parents about this
wonderful and supportive Chiropractic Office - and I have told so many -
but I know most people need to come to this natural realization
themselves; I only hope it is before too much damage has been done to
At this point, every one in my family - my husband, parents, siblings
and their kids - have been touched in spirit and healed in body by Dr.
Mike. Some of them include Dr Mike with their other traditional health
systems, some like myself and my immediate family need no other system
but Dr. Mike. It matters not how many other systems are used, only that
one of them is natural, health supportive, non-invasive and non fearful.
For me, Dr. Mike does it all, but I am thrilled when he can at least do
some of it for those I know and love.

About two years ago, I had sustained a neck injury which was so painful
that it brought me to tears practically every day. My hand was
turning purple and I had practically no mobility of my left arm and
shoulder. I even had to cancel a vacation last summer because I
couldn't sit still without suffering excrutiating pain. I found
myself practically reliant on pain killers until I decided to try
chiropractic. In a period of about a year and a half I had gone to
three chiropractors, an accupunturist, and two orthopedic surgeons.
The first two chiropractors did absolutely nothing and the third one
actually intensified my pain. The accupuncture treatments were a
waste of time and money, and the orthopedic surgeons said that I'd have
to go throught a great deal of therapy which would cost thousands and
thousands of dollars, and then there's no guarantee. I was about
to give up when a friend told me to try Dr. Mike. I decided that
this would be my last resort. Was I surprised when he said that he
could help me. After only a few treatments I was starting to get
relief, and now I'm practically pain-free with almost total mobility.
I am so excited and grateful to Dr. Fitzgerald. God bless you!
I started seeing Dr. Fitzgerald about six years ago as a last resort
before surgery for my badly damaged ankles. I had the most severe form
of arthritis in them (what is known as arthropothy) and I was all set to
go in to have an operation to completely fuse them in order to alleviate
some of the pain. At that time, I was in braces on both ankles, was
taking six advil every day and still had tremendous pain when I walked.
Dr. Fitzgerald had all the confidence in the world when I came to him
and promised he would make me feel at least a little better- enough to
avoid the surgery. Well, in one month I was out of one of the braces,
and two months later I was out of the other. Also, from that point on, I
have taken absolutely no pain medication of any kind and I am active
again- playing golf regularly and not walking with any discomfort most
of the time. My orthopedist and physical therapist who I had seen before
Dr. Fitzgerald came along are constantly amazed at the improvement in my
ankles' range of motion and in the fact that I am not in any pain. They
are always curious as to what Dr. Fitzgerald does and I always tell them
the same thing: "I don't know- it doesn't seem like much (press this,
move that...) but he sure knows what to adjust and when to adjust it!"
