Practice Information:


At Total Body Chiropractic, we believe in preventing health and wellness from being lost and if it is, we do our best to help you get it back!!

We Specialize in the detection of dangerous Subluxations which change the signals from the brain to your body. This causes people to lose their ability to move, causes aches and pains up and down the spine and joints, difficulty and pain on moving, arthritis, tightness, spasms, numbness, muscle wasting and weakness, migraines/headaches, reproductive difficulties, menstrual pains, and more. The longer they are left the more serious the issues.

When people start having symptoms it is their bodies way of telling them something is seriously wrong and it requires them to look into it. Pain pills hide the pains for a while but allow the problems to get worse.

When people visit our office we look for dangerous subluxations which can alter the signals from your brain to the rest of your body, causing you to get sick. In order to do this we take a comprehensive history, EMG, thermal neural scan, physical exam of the spinal column and joints, and request x-rays when required.

Once we have our information we develop a treatment plan to get rid of the subluxations and restore the quality of life lost using gentle adjustments, exercise, massage, eating, supplements and herbs) We also perform regular re-evaluations to monitor your change and progress until you reach the level of health you desire. At this point maintaining the level of health you have worked so hard to achieve is very important to us. So we educate and guide you on how to maintain you new found health.


Practice Message:


Mission: To give people the opportunity, the encouragement, and the ability  to get their quality of life back. To have them enjoy life instead of feeling like a prisoner in it. We give people this opportunity, all they have to do is be willing to accept, take responsibility and act. Ultimately, we encourage people to learn how to stay well. This will be accomplished by educating people, so they realize how the body works and what is needed to stay well.

You see, I have had the personal experience of seeing how chiropractic can change lives. I HAD asthma, My little girl had ear infections and as a result of medications given her, started experiencing seizures. My boy was colic as a result of an emergency delivery (was very necessary). My father also had severe knee problems and my mother had migraines. It may sound to good to be true but my asthma, my little girl has stopped having ear infections, my boy remained colic for only about 8 days, my father can now run, and my mother doesn't have migraines. All this, is due to chiropractic, without the use of drugs.

Please realize some drugs are required at times but some of the most dangerous side effects are from drugs used for pain. They do not correct the problem only hide it for a short time.
