Meet Dr. Deborah Fudge of Fudge Chiropractic


Dr. Deborah Fudge, experienced Methuen Chiropractor, has been serving the Merrimack Valley and southern New Hampshire for 30 years.  Her love for helping patients has fueled a successful career. She is currently located at Perrault Chiropractic in Methuen, Ma. Dr. Fudge is a provider for all the major health insurances. She is accepting new patients Tuesday through Saturday.

"Like many Doctors of Chirorpractic, I became interested in chiropractic because it made a significant impact on the health of a family member. In this case, it was my mom. When I was in high school, my mom was in a serious car accident. She developed low back pain and eventually sciatica ( pain down her leg). She went the traditional medical route and was basically just given pain meds and told to rest. After 4 long years of pain and suffering she finally went to a chiropractor as a last resort. Her results were so dramatic I was inspired to become a chiropractor. 

I graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1986 and have been in private practice in Methuen, Ma for 30 years. I am an active member of the Massachusetts Chiropractic Society and currently the president of the Merrimack Valley Chiropractic Society."

The purpose of the team at Fudge Chiropractic and Wellness is to provide the highest quality care in a loving and peaceful environment as together we optimize health from the inside, out. Chiropractic has always been drug-free and 100% natural.
