Next, you will have a consultation with Dr. John Grgicak to discuss your health-related problems, concerns and potential treatment options. This initial visit is designed for Dr. Grgicak to learn more about you, your condition and expectations to determine how chiropractic care can meet your goals.

What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is natural health care that treats the body without the use of prescriptions, invasive procedures or surgery. It involves making small adjustments to your spine to fix places where the nerves in your vertebrae might be pinched. When your skeletal structure is in alignment, your body will benefit from increased blood circulation, range of motion and nerve transmissions.

We use advanced techniques to carefully bend your joints into a position that counters the improper posture, slowly retraining your skeletal structure to curve correctly.

These instruments deliver precise impulses that gently correct the placement of your spine. This is an especially effective treatment for patients who have poor range of motion.
