We Can Help
Are you suffering and always in pain? If so, come be part of our healing experience! We specialize in patients with all types of chronic and acute pain. Tired of being prescribed countless pain medications and don't want to go through another surgery? We receive thousands of patients desperately looking for another way out. Our gentle method removes the pressure from your brainstem which helps correct pinched nerves and in turn relieves sciatica, stiff necks, low back pain, migraines, headaches and many more ailments. Stop masking the pain! We’ll find the root cause and help you feel healthier than ever before!
Do you sit all day? Lift heavy machinery at work? Injured playing sports? Drive for hours at a time? Or been in a car accident? Most people don’t even know whether they have poor posture. Patients in alignment stand straighter, walk with purpose and raise taller. A simple adjustment to your spine can reset your posture and counteract the negative effects such as hunched and curved backs. If you’re ready to get rid of your slouch, we are here to give you the care your body needs. Let us help you stand strong!
We promote a healthy life from the start. We serve not just adults but families of all types of ages teens, grandparents and even newborns. It is much easier to begin correctively aligning a spine at a young age. If your child's spine is misaligned,their body is not performing at its full capacity and therefore symptoms such as crankiness, colic, frequent sickness, constipation, earaches, asthma, bedwetting and low energy begin to arise. We are here to help and prevent your children from ever having to suffer. Our positive and loving team provide a safe environment for you and your loved ones. We listen, we heal and it works! Get checked today.

Expert Analysis and Thorough Investigation
We perform a thorough orthopedic, neurologic examination and capture your posture measurements. Our Doctors examine your posture, nerve function, muscle strength, reflexes and leg length. If necessary, our doctors will capture digital weight-bearing X-rays. After careful analysis of the results of your exam and or x-rays we determine if we can help you. Also in this study we find precise misalignment of your spine, skull and pelvis.
