This appears to be a new norm for long while for most of them, or maybe even a permanent one for some. Unlike our office, our homes are generally designed for relaxation and family time.

Why “Family”?

A patient asked me yesterday why my clinic is called Family Health Chiropractic Clinic. I thought this is an excellent chance for me to explain to anyone who cares to know. I personally believe that chiropractic is not just for someone with aches and pains. Chiropractic should be for the family.

Our experience with Chiropractic

This marks the first entry to my blog as a doctor of chiropractic.
