The Salse Chiropractic Mission: 

Our purpose is to help as many people as possible live better lives through natural chiropractic.

Welcome to our office. Renew, Refresh, Rejuvenate.

When you visit us for your health care needs, we’ll work with you to meet your healthcare needs. You’ll learn how regular chiropractic care can help you maintain a high level of health well into your later years. In fact, many of our senior patients use chiropractic to keep up with their active lifestyle. We’ll talk to you about how the nerves in your body are all connected to your spine, and therefore by addressing the alignment of the spine, we’ll affect the overall health of your entire body.
