Children of all ages greatly benefit from chiropractic care and are usually very quick to respond. Many parents are unaware that chiropractic care can be a safe and effective alternative to drugs and surgery for their children.

My daughter (15; competitive swimmer) and I absolutely love Dr. Jeff. He manages her sport related wear and tear and my very unhappy neck. He has a wonderful bedside manner and I always leave feeling so much better than when I arrived. He is an integral part of our care; I don’t know what we’d do without him."
