Referral Contest

The best compliment that you can give us is a referral. And starting now through the end of September we want to make every referral a chance to win! For every new patient that is referred into the office, both you and the new patient will be entered into a contest for prizes, including a Kindle Fire and more. The new patient must attend their scheduled appointment and mention the person that referred them. There is no limit as to how many entries you can get.

Equipment Spotlight

99% of patients that come into the office have issues that can be effected by posture. There is a piece of equipment that everyone should have at home, a foam roller! There are many types of foam rollers available, but most do not need the expensive, fancy ones. A plain, high density, 12 inch full round roller will work. They are available on Amazon or even in your local stores, such as Target. Foam rollers can be used for neck pain, low back pain, leg pain and more. Ask at your next appointment how to use one!
