What You Need to Know About Your Treatment at Chiro-Health
After your initial appointment and new patient examination, your doctor will put together a treatment plan that is personalize for your condition. As you move forward with treatments at Chiro-Health, your doctor will use the plan as a road map for your health and wellness.
