While visits to Beshel Chiropractic Center could easily be quite brisk—Doctors of Chiropractic John and Tim Beshel can assuage most aches and pains with just a few expert adjustments —this isn't the case. Rather than simply treating patients and sending them on their way, the team of brothers takes the time to educate them about causes of their ailments, giving them greater insight into the effects of gentle, low-force adjusting techniques.
