“The Physician must be experienced in many things, but most assuredly in rubbing. For rubbing can bind a joint that is too loose, and loosen a joint that is too rigid.
Hippocrates 460-377 BCE

I suffered a lower back injury my first year of college, during this time I have seen many other doctors and one other chiropractor. But I’ve enjoyed my experience the Center for Spine Care and Mobility the most. I’ve only been seeing them for a short time, but I already see an improvement in my core strength and the pain in my lower back that would occasionally flare up is now slowly but surely disappearing. I would recommend CSC+M to anyone who wants to see great results and be treated incomparably by a wonderful staff.
