Fazio comes to Frankfort from Synergy Institute in Naperville, and prior to that she was employed with Total Life Chiropractic in Willow Springs. She earned a doctorate of chiropractic degree from Palmer College, Florida Campus, and a bachelor of science, biology degree, magna cum laude, from the University of Memphis. She also holds certification in acupuncture from the National University of Health Services.

Fazio’s experience in treatment using acupuncture will be a welcome addition to the Lincoln-Way community.  According to the Mayo Clinic, acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force, known as qi or chi, believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body.

By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance. Fazio’s acupuncture treatment will be a good compliment to the chiropractic and massage therapy treatments currently used at Sports & Spine Chiropractic, agreed Wolfe and Katzmann.

They are the team chiropractors for the Chicago Fire Major League Soccer team and have also served as official chiropractors for the Joliet Slammers Frontier Baseball League and the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour.
