Need a Health Expert? Ask Mom

Need a Health Expert-Ask MomMother’s Day is set aside each year to appreciate the oldest and perhaps most prevalent role in our culture, motherhood.  Moms are called upon to raise children, run households, be a neverending source of entertainment and diversion for kids, and address issues that no one else seems to be able to handle.

Moms contribute so much to our upbringing.  They can serve as a sympathetic ear, a strong back, a willing taxi driver, an expert manager, a source of wisdom, a cheery voice, and a world class problem solver.

But one of the most important jobs that lands on Mom’s list is to oversee the family health and wellness.  Mothers tend to have an intuition, a sixth sense about what’s right for their families.  Often, the mother decides what the family eats, which activities are too dangerous to risk, and which doctors the family goes to.

This is why it’s important for mothers to understand the value of chiropractic care for themselves and their families.  Often, when Mom begins her own spine and nerve system care with her chosen chiropractor, she opts to bring the children in for a check-up, to be sure that there are no early problems brewing, and sometimes even insists that Dad has to come in to get checked too.

Why do moms tend to care so much about bringing the family in for chiropractic care?  Because mothers inherently know what’s good for their family, and keeping everyone healthy is far better than waiting to get sick and then trying to get better, which can be inconvenient, costly and painful.

It’s more logical to stay well than to have to get well, so moms all over the world bring their families in for regular check-ups and chiropractic adjustments when necessary.  Faced with ongoing family decision-making, they usually just naturally know the right thing to do, so if you want to know about health, ask Mom!

Dr. Thomas Tuzzolino’s journey into Chiropractic began back when he was 14 years old and suffered a neck injury playing football.  He was taken off the field in a stretcher and brought to the hospital for testing.  After being released he was told to wear a neck brace and take some Ibuprofen.  That’s it…!!!  Over the next five to six years he dealt with neck symptoms until he went to a Chiropractor and was told he had a “Subluxation”- a mis-alignment of a bone in the neck that was causing nerve irritation.  There he learned more about why it was important to get adjusted, not just for pain, but for overall wellness.

With interests in sports, fitness, health, and wellness, along with studying exercise physiology at the time, he still hadn’t put two and two together about what makes people truly healthy.  From the Chiropractor, Thomas learned what he already intuitively knew; the body is a self-healing, self-regulating, self-maintaining organism that is controlled and regulated by the nervous system.  If there is an interruption in the nervous system, the body’s ability to function is diminished.  Every experience you have is through your nervous system so if interruption to the nervous system occurs the essence of life is diminished.  Dr. Tuzzolino became aware that Doctors of Chiropractic are the only health professionals that detect this interruption.  From that moment on he knew he was meant to be a Chiropractor!

That is where Dr. Tuzzolino’s Chiropractic journey began.  From there he went on to graduate with honors from Southern California University of Health Sciences in Los Angeles and returned to Scottsdale, AZ in 2004 to practice in the area he loved.  Dr. Tuzzolino continue to study, educate himself, and increase his knowledge base to be able to help as many people as he possibly could in a safe and natural way free of drugs & surgery.  He looks to inspire, promote and celebrate healthy lifestyles by guiding his practice members and his community to a new experience of life.  He take an active role in the community by speaking to groups, businesses, and organizations.  Dr. Tuzzolino also contributes to charities whenever possible.

“It is my true purpose to create the ULTIMATE healthcare experience through EDUCATION and AWARENESS of true optimal health and wellness as a result of a FULLY functioning nervous system so that we can all live the best life possible!!!”
