Meet the Team

In our practice, patients can use chiropractic five different ways. The first is for pain relief. That's where most people start. The second is for corrective care to make more lasting spinal changes. The third is for maintenance to stay well and maintain spinal corrections. The fourth is to see us regularly for early detection and prevention of new spinal problems. The fifth is to promote wellness so they can be their best. Ask Dr. Thalman about Well-Care Exams.
