Team of Health Professionals
Dynamic Chiropractic and Sports Therapy Center was built to ensure the patient gets the best care for each individual area, working together as a team of health professionals instead of individually to get the patient back to optimal health. The health professionals aren’t just about getting people in and out of the door, they genuinely care about healing your injury back to 100% in the fewest treatments possible. To do this, they take the time working one on one with the patient to fully understand the injury and the cause of injury, doing extensive hands on muscle work, and often providing a custom home exercise program so that the patient has a big part in getting back to full health. Our health professionals work on a variety of athletes and sports related injuries as well as have an extensive background on all non sport injuries, including injuries sustained at work or from motor vehicle accidents, and help babies, kids, non-athletes, and the elderly.
