Meet Dr. Thomas Tuzzolino

My Why, My Purpose

Dr. Thomas Tuzzolino Scottsdale chiropractorMy journey into Chiropractic began back when I was 14 years old and suffered a neck injury playing football. I was taken off the field in a stretcher and brought to the hospital for testing. I was released and told to wear a neck brace and take some Ibuprofen. That’s it…!!! Over the next 5 -6 years I dealt with neck symptoms until I went to a Chiropractor and was told I had a “Subluxation”- a mis-alignment in the bone in my neck that was causing nerve irritation. There I learned more about WHY it was important to get adjusted, not just for pain, but for overall wellness.

Even being into sports, fitness, health, and wellness, along with studying exercise physiology at the time I hadn’t put two and two together about what makes us truly healthy. Through that Chiropractor I learned, what I already intuitively knew; that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating, self-maintaining organism that is controlled and regulated by the nervous system.

Make An Appointment

If there is an interruption in the nervous system, the body’s ability to function fully is diminished. Every experience you have is through your nervous system and again, if interruption to the nervous system occurs the essence of life is diminished. I was made aware that Doctors of Chiropractic are the only health professionals that detect this interruption.

From that moment on I knew I was meant to be a Chiropractor! That is where my Chiropractic journey originated and from there I went on to graduate with honors from Southern California University of Health Sciences in Los Angeles and returned in 2004 to practice in the area I love to live, Scottsdale, AZ.

Pursuit of Excellence

I continue to read, educate, and grow my knowledge base to be able to help as many people as I possibly can in a safe, natural, drug & surgery free way. I look to inspire, promote and celebrate healthy lifestyles by guiding my practice members and my community to a new experience of life. I take an active part in my community by speaking to many groups, businesses, and organizations, both young and old, and enjoy contributing to charities my time and donations 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! Contact us today to get started!
