Meet Dr Deborah Fudge of Fudge Chiropractic


From the time she was a teenager, Dr Deborah Fudge knew she wanted to help those suffering pain needlessly to find relief. In Her words:

"I became interested in Chiropractic because of my Mom. When I was in high school shewas rear-ended by a drunk driver.  At that point she developed low back pain and sciatica.  She was going to many doctors  but  she was not surgical and the treatment was pain medication.  She was being treated for the symptoms not the cause.  She lost feeling in her right leg, was in chronic pain,  started gaining weight because she was not able to exercise, and was going down the tubes.  Finally, after 4 years of suffering, she heard a chiropractor speak at a health fair.  She decided that chiropractic was the one thing she had not tried because none of her doctors had recommended it.  On her own she made an appointment and the rest as they say is history !  I was 19 and wanted to know what this doctor did that was different than all the rest.  He showed me her x-rays and where the nerve was being pinched. He explained how the adjustment helped to remove the pressure and allow the body to heal itself naturally.  WOW! It was the coolest thing I had ever heard.  It was an “Ah-ha” moment and I knew in my heart that I this is what I was destined to do. "

Dr Fudge has now been in practice for over 30 years, Her office is located in Methuen, MA and she is ready to serve you. Your health is priceless and it is her goal to make chiropractic care affordable to all who are interested in a drug-free, natural approach to health. In today's opiod filled environment, Dr Fudge is even more determined than ever to get you relief without medicine. Give her a call and let the healing begin.
