I have a whole person approach to dealing with chiropractic issues because, at its core, chiropractic is about finding and addressing the root cause of injuries and disease and not just the effects of it. Understanding the reason why you have pain and where it is coming from gives me better knowledge to treat the problem.
I am passionate about what I do, and I am serious about helping my patients live healthier lives. I welcome challenging cases -- patients who have tried everything else or even surgery without much success. In addition to treatment of acute pain and injuries, I have a focus on family wellness and preventative care. Prevention and maintenance are the keys to a healthier lifestyle. I take care of adults, children, pregnant women with back pain, personal injuries such as auto accidents and slips/falls and sports injuries.
