A Bad Disc Injury & Sciatic Pain Down Both My Legs.

Chiropractor, Margaret Powell

“I wanted it to go away and didn’t particularly want a series of doctors’ appointments. My visits to the family chiropractor turned out to be surprisingly pleasant and even more important, provided rapid relief.”

I remained a chiropractic patient through the years of high school and undergraduate college. My brother, who had been my ‘ride’ to Dr. George, had become intrigued with the concepts of chiropractic and had begun studies at Palmer College of Chiropractic. On a timely visit home his enthusiasm encouraged me to join him.”
