Even if it has been a while since the injury Chiropractic neuro-spinal adjustment will help.

Will you listen to my story? Yes. One of the most important parts in determining the true nature is to listen to what the patient says. After all they have been living with their problem and very often their comments are a great aid in knowing how to proceed.
Can I receive both conventional and alternative medicine? Yes, But sometimes it can be a balancing act when it comes to nutrition. We would need to determine if nutritional protocol could be used instead of or in addition to meds. This requires the cooperation of your medical doctor. Chiropractic care and energetic balancing can be utilized with conventional medicine. Often the alternative approach works better and conventional medicine’s side effects can be reduced or eliminated, saving money and aggravation.
