Health and Happiness,
Dr. Fredrick R. Santangelo

This has been one of the best summers I’ve had in many years…

I have Dr. Santangelo to thank for it. Please allow me to tell my story.

I am a working mother with two children (ages 6 and 8). My children used to be sick constantly… especially my son. He had weekly ear infections, bronchitis, pneumonia, and asthma attacks. It seemed that he was consistently on antibiotics. His asthma was getting worse and I was exhausted from taking care of him and stressed out from being out of the office so much and using all my vacation time.

My sister (she lives in south Jersey), suggested that I should see a chiropractor for my son’s condition. (She mentioned my problem to her doctor and he recommended Dr. Santangelo). Of course I was a bit confused on how a chiropractor could help my son…

After meeting Rick and learning about chiropractic care I was very anxious to give it a try. My son had been under Rick’s care for 1 year and 4 months… he has NOT had one ear infection since his first treatment. His asthma is under control (we found out he was allergic to milk products through a chiropractic procedure) and he had an asthma attack in 9 months. Actually my son hasn’t had to take any antibiotics since he’s been under Dr. Santangelo’s care!

Needless to say I am a very happy mother. I was able to take two vacations this summer (since I didn’t use vacation to take care of sick kids).

I am also under Rick’s care and I feel wonderful.. I recommend chiropractic care to everyone I know that is having a reoccurring ailment and /or back problems. I am really pleased with Rick’s care and how he has helped me and my children live a better quality of life.

Neck & Lower Back Degeneration

When I started coming to see Dr. Santangelo at his chiropractic office I had various issues. Coming in with neck pain and lower back degeneration, Dr. Santangelo took me right under his wing and guided me to the path of healthiness.

Since that first day I feel great. There are many differences that I have noticed, not only what I walked in for. My neck flexibility improved and less lower back pain. But wait, it doesn’t stop there. My blood pressure is right where it is supposed to be any my sleeping has gotten better as well.

Dr. Santangelo has so much to offer, he even introduced me to NutraMetrix, which is all natural vitamins and more. Taking this vitamin could not have been a better choice, my eyesight is better than ever and no allergies. Coming to see Dr. Santangelo and becoming a part of his family was the best decision for my health.

I have had back problems for many years.

I first saw a chiropractor about 10-12 years ago. My father ha been seeing a chiropractor for over 20 years so my family is very familiar with the benefits of chiropractic. Last year I saw an orthopedist who recommended stretching and exercises, over-the-counter medication for pain and possibly surgery.

I didn’t get much relief from the exercises and I don’t like taking any kind of medication. More recently I have suffered with lower back pain and sciatica. By last December I would manage to get through the work week and then would spend weekends laying down in pain. In January I started treating with Dr. Santangelo. Almost immediately I felt better but I would still have bad days. I do some heavy lifting at my job and thought this might be aggravating my back. However within 3-4 weeks of being under Dr. Santangelo’s care I felt a noticeable change and was very close to being 100% better.

I have been coming to Dr. Santangelo for about 21 years now.

My progression with Dr. Santangelo has been wonderful and I feel a significant 90% better. He always knows exactly what to do when I inform him of pain that has started.

He will tell me the things I need to so to help me receive the best Chiropractic care. He helps me understand what is wrong and I feel confident enough to tell other people about this and how he helped me. I like knowing and understanding what he is doing and how it can help people. I now receive corrective and maintenance care from Dr. Santangelo.

The staff is always very helpful and sweet and I really feel like they care about their patients. I will always refer Dr. Santangelo to everyone I know.

Chronic back pain for 3 years

I had suffered with chronic back pain in the upper right side of my back for approximately 3 years. During that time, I visited two Orthopedic Specialists about six months apart. Each prescribed physical therapy including the use of a pain killing drug (Tylenol with Codeine).

After undergoing the therapy and using the drug for several months in each case, my condition did not improve. I became frustrated, continued to miss work frequently and limited my physical and social activities due to the increasing pain.

After discussing this condition with my family physician, he suggested I try chiropractic for a few months and if my condition did not improve in that time frame, he would suggest other alternatives.

I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Santangelo and begun chiropractic treatment immediately. Where I didn’t get the sense of true concern for my well being from the Orthopedic Specialists, I felt it immediately from Dr. Santangelo. He made me feel that I was not just another patient and that he would do everything hr could to help. Under his care, my condition started to improve in approximately 3 months. After 12 months of adjustments, I no longer had the “chronic” back problem.

As a result, I became more active physically and socially, play golf frequently, involve myself in my 6 year old son’s sports on a regular basis, and now do a lot of my own home improvements which I would not have attempted previously.

I would suggest to anyone with any kind of back problems to try chiropractic. It has helped me tremendously and I no longer feel that I will be hampered with back pains the rest of my life. I have chosen to receive monthly maintenance adjustments from Dr. Santangelo at my own expense to ensure continued good health.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Santangelo’s since 1979

What prompted me to see Dr. Santangelo was a lower back problem that had gotten so bad that I couldn’t walk. I ended up in the hospital on several occasions for this problem. I’d go into traction for 2-3 weeks with daily therapy. This never seemed to correct the problem.

No sooner would I leave the hospital and go back to my everyday activities, I would end up in the same position, “in pain”. It got so bad one time that I cried and had to be taken to the hospital by stretcher.

One day one of my husbands friends recommended Dr. Santangelo. So I decided to give Chiropractic a try. I almost immediately felt better. I’ve stayed with Chiropractic ever since. Any time my back feels like its going out I call Dr. Santangelo, go for an adjustment and I’m feeling fine again. Since my chiropractic treatment started I have never ever gotten as bad as the days that I was hospitalized.

I had always been aware of the benefits of Chiropractic Care.

My uncle was a Chiropractor who graduated from the Palmer School of Chiropractic. My firm belief was to go to a Chiropractor who also graduated from the Palmer School.

I met Dr. Santangelo at a company sponsored Health Fair. The first question I asked him was if he was a Palmer Graduate. When I found out he was I was ready to go to him.

I had been having sciatic pain for about SIX MONTHS before I started at Santangelo Chiropractic & Integrative Wellness Associates, LLC. The pain probably started as a result of lifting boxes at work. I would have to life them up and down the stairs constantly. I also had a problem with constant headaches. I was taking Aspirin, Sinus Medication or whatever I thought would alleviate the pain, all of the time. Mostly these pills did nothing for me. Sometimes going to sleep was all that I could do to relieve myself of the pain.

When I started with Dr. Santangelo I was very impressed with his very thoroughness concerning my conditions. He gave me a complete Examination and Evaluation and X-Rays on my first visit. On my second visit I watched a short video tape on Chiropractic Care. The doctor also went over my X-Rays with me and explained his findings from the X-Rays before I could even have my first adjustment. Within 5 treatments I was feeling better.

I have been coming for two years now. I do not have headaches any longer and my sciatic problem is under control. I continue with a maintenance program of once per month to assure that my good health is maintained.

I never thought I would feel this great again!

When I came to Dr. Santangelo’s office two years ago I could not stand up straight. The pain I felt exhausted my energy and interrupted my sleep. Of course with the treatment I began to feel better and better each day and in time, I was back to performing all my tasks again.

But there was an annoying ache in my right lower back that was always there and that I’d felt for years and years. I was okay with this because in my view, at least I was able to drive to work and vacuum my house again. And also, an Orthopedic doctor told me years ago that the problem in my lower back was genetic and that I would have to learn to live with it; his exact words were “the cure is worse than the disease.”

Last month, the adjustment you gave me fixed THAT. So… very happily… I have no aches or pains anywhere. Not that I doubted your treatment, I just thought with this “genetic” issue, it would be impossible to be pain-free again.

I have shared this great news with friends and family and think it’s only appropriate I share it with you. Thank you so very much.
