Dr. Fraudin was born and raised in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. He did his undergraduate work at the University of Pittsburgh and then completed his chiropractic studies at New York Chiropractic College- the only time he has lived away from Pittsburgh. He opened his doors in 1982, moving into our current location in 1988.
He gives lectures at career days and teaches the students to pick a career based on something you love doing. Luckily, he practices what he preaches- working with his hands and helping people. He has developed his practice based on good old-fashioned business principles. Patients in pain will be seen that day. He even makes house calls when someone is in so much pain that they cannot move.
Dr. Fraudin prides himself on staying current with medical practice. He spent three years after chiropractic school, studying weekends to become board certified in rehabilitation therapy. He also has state of the art equipment and training to treat patients non-surgically for scoliosis. He recently upgraded his office to use digital x-rays which are better for the patient and the environment.
He and his wife stay busy outside the office with their two sons, who have never said the words “I’m bored!” Currently, he follows a LOT of baseball games. His few spare minutes are enjoyed in his garage where he loves woodworking and is building a kit car- again, working with his hands!
He has witnessed lots of wonderful moments in his 27 years of practice- the kids who stopped bed-wetting, the athletes who function to their best ability without the knee pain they came in with, the grandmas who can now reach the top of their head to fix their hair… His patients range in age from newborn to 104! He has the same smile on his face at 8 a.m. and at 8 p.m. Just ask his patients. Many of them still come periodically since 1982!
