Dr Scott photo

Dr. Scott Coletti, Chiropractor

All of the kids on the baseball team, including Dr. Scott Coletti got adjusted and looked up to the chiropractor. This experience gave him a firm foundation of chiropractic care and intrigued him to learn more.

Growing up with a mentality of healing naturally, Dr. Coletti rarely took medications. He believed that when it came to health, less was more. This philosophy aligned with chiropractic care as a means of natural healing without the use of drugs or surgery.

Once he graduated with his undergraduate degree, he called a friend who was a few years older that was in chiropractic college. After talking to him, he gravitated toward chiropractic college and hasn’t looked back since.

Dr. Coletti chose to attend Life University in Marietta, GA. He still remembers a time during his residency in Marietta when he was delivering newspapers early in the morning. One customer had a 9 year old daughter who wasn’t able to control her bladder, had to wear diapers and had been to every physician or specialist they could think of.

Dr. Coletti recommended that she and her daughter visit him for care. They arrived, desperate for anything to help. After just three adjustments, he was able to align the girl’s spine and lower back that helped her regain control of her nerves.

Dr. Coletti has been helping patients get out of pain with cold laser for over five years and so successfully, he alongside his ATC Brad of almost 20 years, have come up with Trademarked Protocols to successfully get people out of pain while regenerating the tissue in painful and degenerative joints. They are now helping other physicians world-wide with their cold laser protocols. It gave me goose flesh – that was the turning moment of my life when I realized that maybe chiropractic actually does work.

Dr. Coletti is an avid golfer and is passionate about personal development books. As a strong Catholic, faith is extraordinarily important to him. With one daughter and three sons, he stays busy coaching his children’s Little League and flag football teams.

As Dr. Dan puts it, with chiropractic, the sky is the limit! Dr. Dan came to the profession with a deep background ins ports medicine, rehabilitate exercise and nutrition, and found that chiropractic care was the missing piece of his journey.

In order to provide the best possible care to his patients, Dr. Dan loves participating in professional development courses to further his knowledge and ability to heal. He loves to focus coursework on diagnosing and adjusting extremities as well as herbal medicine and nutrition.

One of my favorite parts about being a chiropractor are the relationships that grow between doctor and patient. I get to work alongside my patients everyday from start to finish as they accomplish their goals-and that’s pretty special.

When he isn’t helping patients heal naturally, he enjoys trying new restaurants in and around the Tampa Bay area, enjoying live music, hitting the beach, or disc golfing.

Dr Bradley photo

Bradley Wright, BS, LAT, ATC, Physical Rehabilitation

While Brad was in high school, he suffered an injury during football practice. He was instructed by his coach to see the athletic trainer. She evaluated his hand and put ice on it. Fifteen minutes later the bruising and swelling went down, and she allowed him to return to practice. This was all Brad needed to be intrigued by this profession. Brad graduated from Dunedin High School with the dream of earning a degree in athletic training.

Brad was introduced to cold lasers over five years ago. Since then he and the staff have been relieving patients’ degenerative conditions, as well as acute and chronic conditions. Learning as much as he could about cold lasers and being able to use them regularly, he developed Trademarked Protocols to transfer patients from pain relief to healing.

Now, they are helping physicians, athletic trainers and physical therapists globally with their Cold Laser Protocols. Learn more about Brad and Dr. Scott’s Cold Laser Protocols here.

Upon graduating from St. Petersburg Junior College, Brad began to fulfill his dream when enrolling at the University of Florida. He graduated in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise & Sport Sciences with a Specialization in Athletic Training. While the traditional setting was fun and challenging, Brad got burned out and wanted to get some experience in a clinic. He has spent almost 20 years with Dr. Coletti as his rehab director.

In his role, Brad initiates and facilitates patients through their physical rehab protocols. He also evaluates and treats orthopedic injuries and makes recommendations. Brad provides cash services such as cold laser therapy, manual therapy, flexibility and massage. He also educates staff on new techniques and studies related to physical medicine.
