Six resources you must have if you suffer from back pain.

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Tue, Sep 23, 2014 @ 04:44 PM

We have had over 20,000 patients in our 20 years of being in business, and each patient teaches us something new.

Posted by Kristina Wert on Mon, Jun 16, 2014 @ 12:12 PM

 

Fire and Ice

“Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice.

From what I’ve tasted of desire
