A message from Dr. Hasick

Since 1980 I have consistently seen a dramatic change in our patients overall health and well being. It is not just back pain that is helped, but a wide variety of health issues. From better digestion to improved sleep patterns and increased vitality, a wide variety of positive results have been experienced by thousands of patients.

A study was recently completed by Dr. Dickholtz Sr. of Chicago that helps to confirm what we have seen so often in our practice. Correcting the Atlas Subluxation Complex (C-1 or Atlas vertebral misalignment) helps the body heal and operate at an optimal level.

Please review the news releases for yourself and know that you have the expertise of this care available to you and your families through our services.
