Sometimes a symptom like lower-back pain does not originate in the back, but in the heel or the shoulders. This is why Doctor of Chiropractic Elizabeth Perez and her staff approach each patient by evaluating the whole person instead of focusing on just the symptoms. Because they believe many symptoms stem from imbalances in the spinal column, each patient's personalized wellness plan often includes chiropractic adjustments. However, care can take the form of a number of services and techniques. Methods include acupuncture to redirect the body's energy pathways, nutritional programs to purge toxins and maintain healthy weight, and corrective exercises to strengthen and realign bodies without strapping a salami stick to the back.
