Chiropractic treatment often involves more than the manual manipulations you receive from your chiropractor during a session. It also involves lifestyle changes (or rather: improvements) that can help enhance and maintain the benefits received in a chiropractic session throughout your day-to-day life.
One such lifestyle change that might come up for you is in the area of nutrition. Your chiropractor might recommend certain dietary changes and/or the addition of one or more vitamins or nutritional supplements to your daily routine. Should vitamins be recommended, you’ll want to know how to choose the best nutritional supplements to fill those needs.
To assist in that end, we offer you the following insights into the process of determining the quality of supplements you have to choose from.

Be sure to discuss with us any nutritional supplement you are taking or are considering taking so that we can make sure it won’t interfere with your treatment, your healing, and your overall health and wellness.
The vitamins carried in our office have been investigated and approved by our office before recommending to our patients.
