Our chiropractor repositions your spine to alleviate the pressure on the disc and begin healing. If you drive for a living and are in an auto accident, you may feel whiplash in your neck. We can help reduce your discomfort by aligning your spine and relaxing the muscles.

Dr. Smith also uses ultrasound to stimulate healing deep within inured muscle tissues. This promotes healing and muscle repair to alleviate muscle strains and spasms.
