Over 100 years ago, the science and art of chiropractic were born in Davenport, Iowa, when D.D. Palmer adjusted the spine of his deaf janitor. Following adjustment, the man instantly heard the sound of wagon wheels on the street below. Since then, chiropractic has grown to become the second largest health profession in the world. The principle of chiropractic has remained the same: remove nerve interference and the body will work to heal itself.
Chiropractors adjust the spine in order to restore normal function to the body. What separates Dr. Michelle from other chiropractors is her understanding that nutritional, chemical and emotional stresses can result in muscle imbalances that cause spinal misalignments. By correcting those imbalances, she is able to successfully adjust her patients for relief of pain and restoration of good health.
Any chiropractor can adjust you. However, at A Wellness Center at Little River, our delivery of care provides a more comprehensive individual approach to your overall health and wellness needs.
