About Chiropractie Brunssum


Scott Fitzgerald D.C. (Dr. of Chiropractic) was born and raised in Long Island N.Y. (the suburbs of Manhattan), U.S.A.

In 2006 he immigrated to The Netherlands following difficulties after the World Trade Center attacks.

Dr. Fitzgerald became interested in Chiropractic as a career after witnessing successful Chiropractic treatment of both his father and sister.
Suffering from lower back pain and sciatica for years, Dr. Fitzgerald’s father was able to free himself from pain after only a few visits to the local Chiropractor.
Meanwhile, Dr Fitzgerald’s sister began a slow decline in her overall health. She had frequent complaints of headache, back pains, nausea, and shortness of breath. After many visits to the GP the problem was finally diagnosed as severe scoliosis. A visit to the Orthopedic surgeon and x-rays confirmed this. Surgery with implantation of rods, screws and bracing was recommended to decrease the severity of the curvature. As a last alternative, a Chiropractor was consulted and treatment initiated with the idea to temporarily minimize the complaints. To the surprise of the entire family follow-up x-rays actually showed a decrease in the degree of the scoliosis and surgery was ultimately avoided!

Dr. Fitzgerald realized his calling was to become a Chiropractor following these positive experiences involving his family and Chiropractic treatment.

Dr. Fitzgerald graduated cum laude from Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City Missouri in 1989 and owned / operated successful practices in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Long Island.

Dr. Fitzgerald began his career in The Netherlands in 2006 first studying and learning Dutch, and then practicing with another group of Chiropractors in Rugcentrum Heerlen and Weert.

It did not take long for Dr. Fitzgerald to realize that the style of practice in these centers was not for him. This and that familiar pang of independence and “doing things your own way” led Dr. Fitzgerald to begin Chiropractie Brunssum in 2013.

Dr. Fitzgerald is eager to introduce a better Chiropractic treatment to the Dutch people and looks forward to helping you reach your health goals.
