Care Philosophy

Our Team is well trained and completely understands the nature of spinal health disorders and dysfunction.

Our goal is to care for you and your family for an entire lifetime. Yes, lifetime! Most cases of spine dysfunction are, or will become, chronic, progressive and degenerative, robbing the nervous system of your bodies' ability to heal and regulate itself, an important aspect of staying healthy!

We call this "Starfish Potential". Our ability to regenerate a healthy body requires healthy spinal cord and spinal nerves, the master control to all functions of the body, especially regeneration and repair.

Since receiving chiropractic care from Dr. Burns I have overcome so many conditions! I went to her on a recommendation to find relief from chronic neck pain and have overcome a long list of conditions. I was a doubter and had a lot of fear about receiving her care. She acknowledged it and always kept my concerns part of her treatment. She offers insight to the how's and why chiropractic adjustments work, and has been encouraging to pursue other methods of care to continue my goal to good health.

I started going to Dr. Burns more than a year ago after wrenching my back while gardening. She helped me get back to gardening. She also helped me get rid of my plantar fascitis. Dr. Burns really knows her stuff!

I loved how thorough Dr. Burns is. Her staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. I not only learned why I have back pain, but how to prevent it from coming back.
