Instead of masking symptoms with medication, they then delve in to treat the cause with a series of chiropractic adjustments and certified massages. The doctors also educate their patients about other natural remedies, therapeutic exercises, and secret handshakes they can use at home to maintain a comfortable, low-pain lifestyle.
