"I have always been a problem solver. When something needs to be fixed I want to fix it 100%. I’m not satisfied with anything else."
Years ago, when Michael Cutitta's parents both sought help from a chiropractor, they couldn't have known what an impact their actions would have on their son. "I watched them get better with the treatments, and it always sounded like a different experience than they had when they went to the doctor's office," recalls Dr. Cutitta, who was influenced enough by the experience that he is now a chiropractor himself. He opened Cutitta Chiropractic in a renovated row house at 4733 Butler St in Lawrenceville.
A native of New Jersey, Dr. Cutitta attended the University of Pittsburgh as an undergraduate and then went to Los Angeles to study and train in chiropractics. "After spending time there, I realized that Pittsburgh was a city I held close to my heart, and I came back," he says. Good move - he became reacquainted with an old friend who is now his wife, and set up shop a few blocks away from where they lived.
Dr. Cutitta is now enjoying helping his patients find the same relief from pain that his parents did. "We can pretty much treat any joint in the body - head to toe," he says. The majority of the complaints he hears? "Headaches and backaches, but I get a lot of shoulder and foot injuries too." As a specialist in prenatal chiropractic care he also helps many patients through their pregnancies, reducing early term symptoms like nausea and later term symptoms like back pain.
He also enjoys the Lawrenceville experience. "It seems like every month there's something new coming to the neighborhood," he says, "whether it's an art gallery, a boutique, or a coffee shop. I wanted to be part of the energy of the neighborhood."

"I fell in love with chiropractic while working as a receptionist at a chiropractic office. I loved the patient/doctor relationship and focus on getting the patient well."
Dr. Cacie Wrye graduated from the Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2015 and has been treating patients hands on ever since. She got into chiropractic by first working at the front desk of a chiropractic office. Seeing the personal patient/doctor relationship that chiropractors often get to have, seeing patients as more than names on charts and witnessing real progress with the patient was the type of care she wanted to provide patients. Dr. Wrye has been working with Cutitta Chiropractic since 2016, and in 2018, she opened our Greenfield location where she is currently located. In just over a year of business, Dr. Wrye has treated many patients, both new and returning for various injuries, but she regards them all with the same philosophy.
In her own words, “I believe that chiropractic is SO much more than adjustments alone. The wear and tear of everyday life affects your whole body. Many of your joints can be affected, which is why I examine every joint, from your jaw to your toes. The muscles and bones work as one unit. If you do not address both components, then you are not completely fixing the problem. I do a lot of muscle work to relieve tightness and tenderness. I do gua sha to treat acute and chronic injuries. I use KT in the office. I use a technique called nerve flossing to treat numbness and pain. I believe in rehabilitative exercises and stretches to fix the imbalances in the muscles.” Dr. Wrye's care has an emphasis on communication -- she wants to hear how patients are feeling between and during appointments and her treatments are driven by not only progress she sees, but by what patients tell her they are experiencing. She is also an excellent educator and takes the time to explain every treatment she does, every step of the way, so patients understand what is being done and how it is helping.
In her spare time, Dr. Wrye is an avid runner and has been for the last 4 years. Since then, she has had 3 surgeries. The surgeries taught her the importance of proper injury rehabilitation before returning to running, and even regular physical activity in general. So far, she has participated in 4 marathons; however, she anticipated to participate in many more – she understands the frustrations involved with having an injury that holds you back from your passions and goals.
"To be anyone else but the happiest version of yourself is a waste."
I love helping learn and educating myself and other people about fitness, massage, and wellness. It's more of a passion, really.
I pride myself in working with as many kinds of people as possible. In this goal, I have done bodywork sessions with — athletes of all kinds: powerlifters, soccer, football, and baseball players, yoga instructors, cyclists, runners; servers and line cooks; new and old mothers; trade professionals and civil laborers; desk workers and instrumentalists.
