Philosophy:
The Body has the ability to heal itself.  In Chiropractic, we facilitate that ability by adjusting the spine and unblocking the life force of the body.   This allows the body to heal itself as it is designed to originally.  My purpose in Chiropractic is to help people feel better and to educate them in proper nutrition, chiropractic health, exercise, and the true cause of injury and illness.  We weren’t born with owner’s manuals unfortunately, so it’s my job to educate you in the proper care of the body, and optimum performance so that you have the chance to optimize YOUR body’s performance.
