The Alternative to Surgery and Drugs
Although Dr. Flowers’ office is similar to other doctors’ in appearance, the use of chiropractic for treatment of pain in shoulders, back, neck, arms and legs, for auto, sports, work and other injuries, muscle spasm, headache and a variety of other illnesses, is a very different approach from that of orthodox medicines.
Chiropractic, through manipulation and treatment of the spine, can permanently relieve physical and physiological problems, which orthodox medicine treats with drugs and surgeries.

As a healing science, modern chiropractic has gained enormous public acceptance and acclaim. It is natural treatment and produces a cost-effective, lasting result.
