Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    "Dr. Wood is awesome and he is providing me a best care and treatment for my back pain. Staff is friendly with great attitudes. I’ve been to other chiropractor places before but this place is excellent and way better than other places. I’d definitely recommend this place."

    J. Sandhu

    "I’ve been going in for weekly adjustments for about a year now. Dr. Wood is awesome! I was in so much pain when I started, and the weekly adjustments have made me pain free. Plus, my pregnancy (and postpartum recovery) was so much easier as a result with little to no back pain throughout. Highly recommended!!"


    "I hadn't been to a Chiropractor in years. My back and neck were a mess! Dr Wood has me feeling like I'm 20 years younger. My back feels stronger, and no more nagging pain. All in under a month! He's a great person, and the best Chiropractor I've ever met!"

    David K.

    "Dr. John and his staff are amazing. They are so personable and take the time to connect with each patient. Helping with all your needs and by far my best decision becoming a regular patient. He was there in my time of need and extreme pain and has helped me so much. That and Kelsey with her massages by far the best place ever. :)"

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness?
