Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Prax. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced overall. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Back Pain
  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Prax. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."

  • "As I've now been under your care for over a year I look forward to each visit with you not only for the adjustment, but for the overall wellness feeling I know I will be walking out the door with."
