"I suffered from migraine headaches for most of my life, and couldn't get by without Tylenol or Aspirin.  Since my first chiropractic adjustment in 2005, my headaches have nearly vanished, and I have not taken any medicine in over 2 years!  Chiropractic also gave me great relief throughout my entire pregnancy, and I believe it helped me have a quick, healthy labor with no drugs or medicine.  My favorite part about working in the office is being witness to so many miracles and helping our community to learn how to stay healthy."
