A Message from the Doctor:

Exercise science is about strengthening the muscles and getting them moving properly, whereas Chiropractic is about aligning the joints or bones and getting them moving properly. So when they’re both working together in harmony, you have the best physical function and health. This is what I am striving to help all our patients achieve!
