"My role as a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) is to diagnose and treat imbalances of the spine, feet, muscles, and nervous system. Chiropractic is a hands-on, safe and effective option for treating aches and pains within the body. My goal is to educate and grow a community of well-adjusted spines from the feet up with an emphasis on wellness and prevention of chronic back pain. Balance, posture and flexibility of the spine are paramount. Maximizing human health potential through regulating the nervous system and its influence on the body is the key service I offer my patients".
