Why do I need a Chiropractor?
Injuries are common. They can happen anywhere, anytime, whether you're training for a marathon or taking out the trash. We're all human and our bodies, despite our best efforts, remain vulnerable. Most injuries come from overuse or unintentional strain, leaving both weekend warriors and recreational athletes with unwanted muscle pulls, neck and back pains, or worse -- damage to delicate joints and tendons. Doctors of chiropractic diagnose these injuries through a variety of non-invasive procedures, offering specialized treatment to correct vertebral immobility and eliminate debilitating scar tissue. Dr. Boisvert addresses the cause of the problem, rather than masking the symptoms.
