Chiropractic care seems to be a universal method of treatment used by all kinds of people. Since receiving frequent chiropractic care I have noticed an improvement in my posture, sleep, energy, and emotional balance. My advice to people I know is that chiropractic care is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Glen has been great and I would highly recommend him.Kyle D
Initially my chiropractic care was to treat “back pain”. I had thought about spinal health, but my thought was pain = improper alignment. Today my thought is proper alignment = proper function = health. I tell my network that chiropractic care is a part of my overall health. One of the largest improvements in my life has been my quality of sleep.Amanda H
