I have suffered for the past four years from complex regional pain syndrome, which causes numbness in my fingers and pain in my hands. While more traditional therapies have provided transient relief, my work with Christopher Adamo has led to regaining the use of my dominant hand and consistent pain relief. Christopher approaches musculoskeletal symptoms systematically, yet never fails to observe and treat the whole patient. His emphasis on healing and pain relief has helped me enormously.

I saw Christopher Adamo for a severe back problem. I was not able to stand up straight when I first saw him. I was able to stand when I left the office.

Christopher Adamo is a caring and attentive therapist. He really listens to his clients and searches diligently for the genesis of pain. In my case, he has helped with lower back problems. I have recommended Christopher to several friends and colleagues. They have been unanimous in their praise for his work.
