Meet Maryellen Osborne of The Results Realtors

MO

If given the opportunity to pick any career in the world, I would choose to be a Realtor.  What I absolutely love about real estate is helping others fulfill their goals and dreams. 

Just as a buyer sees the house they want to buy as so much more than a structure, I view each client as so much more than a person.  

I set a goal to provide each client I have the privilege to represent with a 5 star experience, because I do not want to be their agent for just this one transaction; I want to be their Realtor for life.  

Please call me when the time is right.  I would love to meet with you and discuss your goals as well as my plan to get you to the closing table.

METHUEN, MA – Dr. Deborah Fudge is pleased to announce her completion of the Foot Levelers Practice Xcelerator, a training session that teaches doctors how to utilize custom orthotics in their practice to help improve patient outcomes.

The combination of Chiropractic care and Foot Levelers custom orthotics is a drug-free pain treatment option at a time when the nation is dealing with a prescription opioid crisis. Chiropractic care is an effective, drug-free pain treatment option.

Research shows that the combination of Foot Levelers custom orthotics and Chiropractic care is clinically proven to reduce Low Back Pain. A recent study published in the "Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation" found that the combination of Chiropractic care and Foot Levelers custom orthotics reduced Low Back Pain by 40.4%. (Source: Shoe Orthotics for the Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain: A Randomized Controlled Trial.) 

Featuring highly-respected sports chiropractor Dr. Tim Maggs, Dr. Fudge learned proven models of care for both acute and non-acute patients at the Practice Xcelerator. During the session doctors are trained on the Atlas Operating System, which teaches a whole-body approach to wellness that starts with the feet.

The feet are the foundation of the body. Even though your feet may not be hurting you, imbalances in the feet could be the source of pain in the knees, hips, and back. Stabilizing the body's foundation – the feet – with custom orthotics helps alleviate pain by addressing imbalances in the body. It is an intuitive, simple, and researched-backed approach to musculoskeletal care.

Custom orthotics are made from a 3D scan of your feet.  Contact Dr. Fudge for a complimentary foot scan. Dr. Fudge also focuses on helping young athletes prevent injuries. If your children play competitive sports, call for a complimentary foot scan before their season starts to start their season on the right foot.
