GET TO KNOW US - Our Story
We are a husband and wife team specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to the skeletal, muscular and nervous system. Our goal is to get people feeling better as fast as possible and to give them the right tools to avoid future injury by becoming proactive and more educated about how to take care of themselves and their bodies.
For several years we have specialized in the areas of acute and chronic neck and back pain, sports injury, pregnancy care, motor vehicle accident and work related injuries.
We continuously keep up with current research and we continue to broaden our knowledge and improve our skills so that our patients get the best possible care. We will make sure to find the source of the injury, not the symptom of the injury, and will do our best to find a clear diagnosis and give you a careful explanation.
In our downtown Burlington clinic, we are hoping to create a warm and healing family environment where we can take care of our patients and their families with a natural and gentle approach to optimal health.
