Care Philosophy

Dr. Popa believes in restoring patients to their optimal health in the shortest period of time. If you would like more energy, less stress, better posture and to start your body back on track to wellness, please call today. Our chiropractic techniques provide you with either hands-on, effective treatments that can help to relieve your back, neck and extremity problems without drugs or surgery or hands-free treatment with the use of instruments. In addition to joint manipulations, called adjustments, we also use a variety of soft tissue techniques and physical modalities.
