The word "chiropractic" comes from the Greek words cheir (hand) and praxis (action) and literally means "done by hand." Instead of prescribing drugs or performing surgeries, chiropractors use manual treatments of the spine and joints, along with therapies and lifestyle changes to allow the body's natural state of health to fully express itself.

Testimonials

  • "I had severe allergies and low back pain for years, plus I was always tired and had occasional neck pain. Before coming to True Health Chiropractic I had taken every allergy pill ever made and nothing would work. I also tried stretching for my neck and low back but the pain would still be there. My allergies now are basically gone. I have not had any low back or neck pain since being adjusted and I am way more energetic!"
