The BetterBackTM Corrective Care Program is designed to address the underlying problem(s) or condition(s) that likely caused the acute symptoms you had when you first came to the clinic!
Many people have an accumulation of old injuries, degenerative/arthritic conditions, as well as postural problems that predispose them to bouts of acute symptoms throughout their life. If these underlying problems are not addressed, then not only are the symptoms are likely to return, but even worse is the fact that further spinal decay and reduced body function are almost inevitable!

Wellness care is also designed to maximize your potential for stable and healthy spinal function as well as identify small problems before they become large complicated ones which are more difficult and costly to deal with. Preventitive health care is the most productive and cost effective type of health care.
