Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    "Dr. Matt is a fantastic chiropractor and sports injury therapist. I came in with a several issues related to my left shoulder and right hip, and he guided me through a series of treatments and exercises that lessened my symptoms immediately while providing a path to improving my overall mobility long-term. I've been to several rehab specialists, and the difference with Dr. Matt is that he really takes the time to listen to what's going on and come up with a tailored program focused on long-term, whole body improvements. I can't recommend him enough."

    "I started going to Dr. Alex about 2 years ago. I hurt my back shoveling snow and needed a chiropractor. I told Dr. Alex what was wrong, and he knew exactly how to fix it. He helped my back so much, I continued to go to him throughout my junior and senior baseball season. I plan on seeing him every time I come home from school."
