Chiropractic Adjustment (Spinal Manipulation)
Chiropractic care is both an art and a science. It’s a natural, drug-free approach to health and wellness.

Your feet are the foundation of your body. So, balance and support are important.
Most people with foot imbalances have little or no pain in their feet. Instead, the pain is transferred to other areas of the body. Weakness or unstable positioning in either foot can contribute to pain in the knees, back, and neck.
Orthotics are shoe inserts that balance your feet. By stabilizing your stance, orthotics help:
We use advanced digital technology called The Associate to evaluate postural health. Foot Levelers, the leading orthotics producer, developed this scanner. It tests for foot and posture imbalances that impact overall bodily function.
