  • Q: What kinds of supplements and medicines do you prescribe?
    A: I carry quality nutritional supplementation from standard process. I also utilize quality chinese herbs to address specific conditions that each patient may encounter.
  • Q: I have been to a masseuse before and enjoy massages, how is that different from visiting a chiropractor?
    A: A massage therapist can address the soft tissue and spend a lot of time working the muscles. As a Chiropractor my main focus is correcting spinal misalignment which can cause nerve irritation, pain and dysfunction. Many times patients have tight muscles as a result of the spine problems they are encountering and by correcting the underlying cause, the muscles can finally relax and stop pulling and spasming. If you have tight muscles and spasms that you have tried stretching out and they just don’t relax, chiropractic or acupuncture may help to remove the problems and finally get the tissues to relax.
