Absolutely! The reason we offer low cash, packages, and member rates is that we want to take care of everyone in our community, and we believe patients who invest in their own health and wellness deserve recognition.

You will know when you will feel relief. I understand you might have some objections because I had them too, long ago when I was a chiropractic patient for the first time. Let me tell you a quick story that helped me realize what chiropractic does. I grew up on a horse farm, and once, one of the horses was lame and couldn’t show. To my younger self's surprise, a chiropractor flew in, adjusted the horse, and a couple of days later, it went and performed better than ever and won the class. This helped me notice how much better a horse could get from having its joints unrestricted and how much better I could get if I took care of mine! - Dr. Dalton
