Dr. James Handzel, DC
As a Nutritional Chiropractor, I see the relationship of chiropractic and the function of the spine to the nerves effecting cell tissues and organs including muscles tendons joint capsules and ligaments. The next step up is Functional Medicine (FM), Nutritional Response Testing (NRT), Morphogenic Field Testing (MFT) these are currently white-hot-trending as the comprehensive patient management of chronic underlying mechanism(s) associated with the entire person, and is ever-growing as the future of health care in this country!

My 2 kids, husband and I have all been going to Dr. Jim Handzel since my kids were born (my oldest is now 12). He first started helping me w/ lower back pain, that is no longer and issue for me and back pain for my Husband. My kids love him, he is so gentle but effective. I now go to him at the onset of colds for the kids and I, and his adjustments and herbal recommendations help us avoid serious colds. He has also helped me avoid carpel tunnel risk w/ regular maintenance.
