We take great pride in providing the finest wellness care services to our community. Below is a sampling of the services we offer.
We provide advanced spinal health care utilizing "state of the art" techniques. Never before have we been able to provide the level of service and expertise that now exists. Our advanced healing methods are safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever. Although new to many people and misunderstood by others, chiropractic care has become known as the best kept secret in health care.
We teach our clients exercises designed to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises are your homework and can dramatically accelerate your results.
Experts suggest that clients who participate by doing their homework consistently can increase the effectiveness of spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be stressed or strained by improper alignment and abuse. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in better health.

Before seeing Dr. Carr in early 2013 I suffered from upper back pain and frequent severe migraines. I instantly felt better after the first adjustment. Regular weekly visits help me with the pain being less severe and I very rarely suffer from a migraine now.
