Recommendations for a Better Health

Your spine is a mechanical tool that requires periodic "servicing" at regular time intervals for preventive maintenance and early detection of dysfunction. Do not neglect it! For better health and a piece of mind - consider chiropractic care first if you have an ailment or an injury, and have periodic chiropractic care checkups for general good health.
