As a nurse practitioner in women’s health, I have to be very careful about referring my patients to someone I trust. Mike Tancredi and his staff are professional, knowledgeable and get results!
Looking for the possibilities to educate and restore health are some of the many things that Mike does. He teaches patients why the problem exists and how to repair it both through ART chiropractic, PT, and exercises at home. Mike is reassuring and reminds patients that they will be “okay”. After my own arthroscopy for a stretched ACL and torn meniscus, I did too much on a hike. I was extremely anxious about possible damage I might have done.
Mike said “no one goes on a straight line from surgery to complete recovery”. Such sage words not only made me feel better, but put the healing process into real perspective.
All of his staff is stellar!

Friday was my first ever appointment with you and it’s definitely not going to be the last by far. I can’t believe I waited all these years to finally get an ‘adjustment’. I simply can’t believe how much better my back feels. And just like you said, it’s not going to be a 100% over night, but – it’s pretty damn near it. I was in pain over the past 4 weeks with no end in sight, and just like that the pain is almost gone. What made me even a happier camper this weekend was the ART on my knee/IT. I tried running like you said. On Saturday I walk/ran about 4 miles. There was still pain, but I stopped when it was too much. Today however, no pain at all in my knee. None. Zip, zilch, zippo. Nothing while walking or going up and down steps. I was very tempted to go running, but instead I decided to stick to the stretching of the hip / IT as you told me and I did a couple miles on the bike. Like you said, since you did both ART and adjustment, we won’t know what was the cause of the knee pain, but to be honest, I don’t care. Both are healing.
Before Friday, I never liked going to doctors for basically anything, because (1) I hate admitting I need help and (2) I never really felt the doctors cared or understood why getting better as quickly as possible so I could run again was so important. But Friday, you not only made realize that though I try to keep in the best shape I can, we all get injured and we all need help to keep after our goals. Also, and most importantly, I never had a doctor actually educate and help me understand what was going on with an injury. For someone like your self who has helped a MVP World Series Pitcher (cool video by the way), I felt like you gave me the same attention and level of help as you would Cole. So thank you for that, I could not stop raving about you to my wife and running coach this weekend!
Thanks again, really appreciate it. Looking forward to coming back in Monday afternoon.
