Meet The Team
Chiropractor Joseph Aprile D.C.
Joseph Aprile D.C. graduated from University of Florida in 1997 with a Bachelors in Microbiology and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic in 2001 from Life University in Marietta, GA. Dr. Aprile is a Tampa native, so he wanted to bring his knowledge of chiropractic back to his home town. He practiced in Tampa for six years until establishing "Aprile Chiropractic and Wellness" in Lutz, FL. in 2008.
Dr. Aprile has always focused on physical fitness and nutrition. Along with a strong desire for achieving optimum health without the use of drugs or surgery, he developed a passion for the chiropractic profession. Dr. Aprile believes in taking the whole person approach by evaluating the nature and origin of each patient's symptoms and educating them on healthy and functional lifestyles.
Aprile Chiropractic and Wellness takes a modern approach to health by using digital postural analysis and digital X-rays (if necessary) to correct structural problems with your spine. Dr. Aprile's goal is to restore proper alignment of the spine through specific corrective adjustments and postural exercises, thereby allowing your nervous system to function at its highest state.

Dr. Fred Russo, DAOM, EAMP, Dip. OM
Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor
Dr. Fred Russo has merged decades of personal experience with centuries of medical knowledge and keen intuition to develop a practice that focuses on activating the healing power inherent within each of us.
Using approaches as modern as they are ancient, Dr. Russo considers every patient a fully unique case. This allows him to chart a defined course carefully suited to address each individual's specific needs.
With years of experience treating acute and chronic conditions, emotional and psychological imbalances, and even survivors of cancer, Dr. Fred Russo presents integrative solutions that are at once direct, effective, and practical.
Specializing in holistic and evidence-based approaches to supporting general health and wellness, Dr. Russo provides his patients with all the tools they need to reclaim a natural state of happiness, health, and overall vitality.
Even at a very young age, Dr. Fred Russo was led by an intuitive leaning toward spirituality and the subtler realms of energetic healing and holistic health. His family was not unfamiliar with this, and made a point of supporting his natural talents and interest in these areas.
The young Dr. Russo began to train in various forms of martial arts. His interest was piqued by the ancient cultures of China and their philosophies. Before long, he was actively engaging with and expanding on that same energetic awareness he had known as a child.
After being introduced to acupuncture and Chinese medicine shortly after college, Dr. Russo recounts experiencing a certain settled sense of "knowing" - that gut level recognition of something as familiar, or important. This recognition would lead him on the journey of a lifetime.
Practically ravenous to learn and to expand his level of self-awareness and body-awareness, Dr. Russo pursued a fascinating course of self-development and self-education. Before long, this deep-seated curiosity had evolved into a definite life path - a sincere passion that sticks with him to this day.
