ABOUT THE SERVICE WE PROVIDE
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY FIRST SESSION?
We will first assess your general health, previous conditions and existing symptoms. We will then conduct a physical examination to locate the problem, during which time we will make adjustments using the light, dexterous techniques associated with the McTimoney chiropractic.
