Frequently Asked Questions
While other offices may provide spinal decompression, we are the only office in Arizona to offer spinal decompression and combine it with neurological and physical rehab for each individual’s findings. The brain controls all the muscles of the spine, and if we neglect the brain when considering spine injuries, it leaves room for these issues to return. We don’t take those chances and we rehabilitate the entire person from top to bottom.
Many patients begin seeing results in a few days to a week.
No, you do not need a doctor’s referral to see us. Chiropractic physicians are considered a point of entry and primary physicians in Arizona.
