Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
According to Civic Economics’ 2012 survey of local businesses, 48 cents of every dollar spent at a locally owned retail business goes back into the local community—more than three times the amount that local economies recover from chain retailers. Small, independent businesses also offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. Additionally, small local businesses have generated 65% of the country’s net new jobs over the past 17 years, according to the US Small Business Administration.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.
Like many kids, Doctor of Chiropractic Steven Peters grew up climbing trees, playing sports, and getting his fair share of injuries. None of them left him debilitated––until he woke up one morning unable to stand up. He was only 17 years old at the time. After one chiropractic adjustment, he walked out of the doctor's office. Though he went on to earn a business degree and have a successful career, he never stopped seeing a chiropractor. The treatments and practitioners nurtured Steve's fascination with the body's innate ability to heal itself. Inspired by this knowledge, Steven enrolled at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic, earned his doctorate, and took up his post at Momentum Chiropractic.
At Momentum Chiropractic, he works alongside Dr. Nesrein Sweidan, who learned about acupuncture and Eastern medicine while becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic. Together, they help athletes and active patients improve their performance and heal after strenuous activity or really intense sofa naps.
