Chiropractor Dave Lemons and his staff at Chiropractic Wellness Center believe there's more to health care than squashing symptoms as they appear. They believe these symptoms should be traced back to their roots and dealt with there, so they don't transform into recurring ailments. Their chiropractic treatments take a natural and systemic approach to healing that's based on the idea that the body can heal itself when given the chance. Gentle adjustments take the place of drugs and medicine by putting the body in a position where it can effectively heal everything from joint pain to headaches.
