How is Cloud Chiropractic different?
Dr. Shannon offers long appointment times. This allows her to get to know your specific case and tailor the treatment towards you. We also offer low and no force alternative to manual popping adjustments. We do not believe you need to be adjusted 1x week for the rest of your life. We believe that chiropractic is one piece of your wellness program. Each appointment is different; a combination of soft tissue manipulation, stretching, therapeutic exercise as well as manipulation will be use to create your specific treatment plan.
