Doctors Bouwhuis and Powell strive to eliminate chronic pain caused by musculoskeletal issues. During consultations, they diagnose concerns such as slipped or bulging discs and incorrect posture, then develop lifelong habit improvements and preventive measures with each client to avoid further aggravation. They then execute an adjustment to alleviate discomfort and improve range of motion. They can also arrange rehabilitative plans consisting of corrective exercises to be performed three days a week, thus continuing their efforts to not only relieve the pain now but keep it from recurring.
