Doctor of Chiropractic Lindsey Blessing gently mends bungled backs and other out-of-alignment parts with modern chiropractic techniques and custom treatments suitable for all ages. A comprehensive consultation and physical exam apprises Dr. Blessing of the chronic ailments afflicting a bag of bones and gives uninitiated patients the opportunity to ask questions, express expectations, and attempt to ascertain the secret handshake of the Skull and Bones society. Dysfunctional physiques then undergo a trilogy of adjustments, during which the doctor manipulates vexed vertebrae in key spinal locales, causing audible joint cavitation and relief from pain in many cases. As well as musculoskeletal maladies, chiropractic care may help treat a bevy of bothersome blights, such as migraines, asthma, ear infections, digestive disorders, and more.
