The body's organs, muscles, and bones don't function on their own; they need each other to work. This idea informs the approach taken by Mountain View Chiropractic's doctors, who espouse a holistic set of treatments for the whole body. They use advanced technologies to peek into the body's inner workings, from x-rays to Insight Millennium scans. From there, the chiropractors create a noninvasive course of treatment, adjusting spinal and pelvic alignment to help patients recovery from injury, cure chronic pain, or become better break dancers. While maintaining patient health, the staff also maintains strict standards of transparency. As the owner says, "We are very detail oriented and are very honest on what we can and cannot help with."
