Co-owner/Operator Dr. Mark Zitnik joined BackFit Health + Spine in 2007 to practice chiropractic in Mesa AZ after earning his Doctorate of Chiropractic from the prestigious Southern California University of Health Sciences. His undergraduate degree is from the University of Illinois, where he also earned the distinction of becoming a four-year varsity letter winner.

“While I feel fortunate to have played football at the collegiate level, I have many lingering aches and pains to accompany all the great memories. As a matter of fact, it was my personal experience with debilitating low back pain (disk bulge) which led to my career in chiropractic. Chiropractic care and physiotherapy allowed me to become active again despite my condition.” It is through his personal experience with back pain that Dr. Zitnik is able to offer the personalized care he provides each of his patients.

Along with his chiropractic and physiotherapy training, Dr. Zitnik has continued his studies in the fields of Nutrition and the Proper Assessment and Treatment of Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries. He is considered by many to be the foremost authority in Mesa regarding auto injury care.

Dr. Zitnik is still active in athletics and since his initial diagnosis, has competed in four triathlons, his new found passion.

This clinic is very friendly and knowledgable and multiple injuries and therapy options for each individual's needs. After one week I already feel stronger and barely have any pain in my hip. Gotta stay with therapy and it will have results!

My back has been feeling much better allowing me to be up on my feet for longer periods of time. The staff there are all very friendly and the scheduling is very accommodating to my busy schedule. I have liked it so much I even brought my 16 year old in to start her treatment too!

Just had a great massage there. I work with large animals so my back and legs where achy but now they feel great.
