Success Stories from Our Patients

  • Improved Health

    When I first came to Dr. C’s office, I had tension in my upper back that moved to the lower part of my skull. After receiving chiropractic care for one month, that tension was relieved. I was also very surprised when I got a cold that it lasted only a week. During the fall allergy season I usually have to battle off bronchitis or pneumonia since I have asthma.

    I’ve been under chiropractic care for a very long time. All I can say is, the care has kept me going, helped me stay pain free in so many ways. Plus, the positive atmosphere and encouragement plays a tremendous part in staying with the program.

    Thank you, Dr. C and you staff for all your help and support. You are the best!
