These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As Doctor's of Chiropractic, Dr. Angela Baxter has over a decade of training and experience in spinal adjustment and Dr. Scott has year's of training and experience in spinal adjustment, as well.

These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
