I have been through many different treatment plans elsewhere, and chiropractic corrective care has given me the best results.

Got dirt? Chronic illness has become the new normal for children. Yet much of what is being done to children— medications they receive like Tylenol and antibiotics, the bleach and Purell we use to sanitize, processed foods they eat in school cafeterias and their own homes, and even time they spend trapped in [...]

I didn’t actually know of a good facility to come to, but I did some research and I found Elevation Health. 100% this was the place to come. The beliefs and the core facility here are fantastic.
