How can a Chiropractor Help?

Chiropractors look at how the body moves as a whole being. Doctors of chiropractic are trained to recognize a stroke in progress and also what to avoid after a stroke. Chiropractic care, using low force movements, to regions of the body below the stroke can offer a conservative recovery plan for the patient. Over the past several years research has shown that chiropractic care help with improving the function of the central nervous system and motor function to speed recovery. It is important that you find an office, like Advanced Sports and Family Chiropractic and Acupuncture, that has additional training in post stroke care.

We just received another great review on Yelp:

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"I found Dr Aaron Beck while looking for an alternative to help resolve a compressed disc in my neck. After trying PT and spine injections, which did not resolve my issue, I found ASFCA. I have utilized their spinal decompression machine as well as cold lazer and it’s helped me a great deal. Now my issue is 80% resolved and my pain level is much lower. Hoping to get to 100% soon. I am a believer and Dr Beck is great to work with."
