Stress Takes Its Toll on Our Health
Americans are more stressed than ever, and that stress has started to affect our health.

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.
