Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "They certainly live up to their name! My husband and I have a significant improvement in our quality of life and it is all due to their caring and competent staff. My husband had a work related injury that could have kept him out of work for months or even required surgery, but thanks to all the staff at Back Into Life he was back to work in a month. They always put the customer first and I'm continuously amazed at how efficiently they assess what's wrong and fix it! You truly could not find a better place for chiropractic care."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
