I am privileged to now also have the opportunity to positively affect the lives of people in my community through my service as a chiropractor."

  • "I came to Oakland Chiropractic because I was experiencing long term lower back pain. I experienced results as I walked out the door on my first visit. My plan is to continue care to keep the pain away for a long time. My success story cannot be completed yet. My success will come as I continue my relationship with Oakland Chiropractic for many years to come. My back issues will be maintained to ensure success when I am able to do what I want as I age. The doctors have given me the tools I need to help me feel better. I also make sure to do my stretches and exercises to keep my activity level where I'd like it to be in the future. Thank you Oakland Chiropractic Clinic, for helping me feel better and I look forward to many years of care."
