Dr. Terri is beyond a chiropractor. She has a rare, unique talent for identifying and correcting issues you didn't even know you had. She is gentle, caring, and treats the whole body. My whole family had been to her and they all think she is a miracle worker, especially my son who constantly needs help for sports related issues. She is the only person who brings my husband relief from his back and neck pains. Highly recommend!!


Dr. Terri is the best. I always walk out feeling MUCH better. Wouldn't even THINK of another chiropractor.


Dr. Terri really is the best! She provides a full hour session and is extremely insightful in picking up on very specific issues without being prompted. In addition to helping with chronic pain or regular adjustments, she provides suggestions for home exercises to strengthen weak and problematic areas. She is definitely concerned about the long term wellbeing of her clients, as is evident with her holistic approach.
