  • "This place was the answer to my prayers! I was nervous & in pain when I went through the door the first time. The front desk was friendly, & helped me right away with everything from scheduling to insurance questions. The doctors listened to my concerns & answered all my questions. We had a plan of action the first day. I was adjusted 3 times & my pain went from 7 & tearful to every now & then I feel a pulling sensation. They did not pressure me to keep coming back but for my health of my spine I will be back. If you want someone to 'have your back' this is the place to go. They made it possible to get back to my busy life....pain free!!!"
