  • ""My health has improved considerably thanks to Dr. Russo!""
    John D.
  • "Dr. Russo has been treating me for 7 years. He treats myself, my wife and my two children. He has been seeing both of them since before they were born, treating my wife through two successful pregnancies. Having spinal stenosis Dr. Russo keeps me walking and working everyday. He is the Best!"
    Rich Conolly
  • "I first sought out treatment with Dr. Russo in 2012 after a shoulder injury. After the first treatment, headaches that I had come to just accept as a daily part of life were gone After a few treatment sessions, the shoulder pain subsided and I was on the road to recovery. He always has a knack for putting me back together again when I got my butt beat at crossfit. He was also instrumental in helping me survive two grueling police academies. I highly recommend the treatment Dr. Russo provides."
    Scott Fowler
  • "i have been to several chiropractors throughout the years in my opinion, Dr. Russo is the best i have been to. He always knows how to put me back together. Whether it's for routine maintenance or when i need serious work after doing something extreme, he always makes me feel better. From my back to my knees and even to my migraines, he has been able to work on everything and get me back to being myself!!"
    Melissa B.
  • "Dr. Russo is one of a kind. Not only do you get top of the line treatment, you also get treated like family. Over my years of being active and construction I've been practically carried to Dr. Russo. After regularly scheduled treatments, I'm still able to play sports competitively and work efficiently. Dr. Russo has also made me avoid going under the knife with his treatments twice! To me, that's a blessing. Before you make any irrational decisions, I strongly advise you to schedule a visit!"
    Forever Thankful, Ryan Conolly

    The recent school year has long been over, but the echoes of learning, striving, and achieving persist.

  • The Sounds of Summer

    The variegated songs of the mockingbird. The crack of the bat on the baseball diamond. The screaming of little children at play in the community pool. Wherever we turn, the sounds of summer surround us in a joyful uplifting cacophony. Summertime may mean barbecue and it may mean the beach, but it also ...

Such conflicting outcomes, known as antinomies ...

  • Meditation and Me

    For many of us, the practice of meditation seems like a totally foreign notion. In an era of full-time, morning-to-night distractions and distractibility, the concept of quietly sitting with nothing else to do seems impossibly ridiculous. Why would anyone do that, we ask, as we text message with one ...
