When the parents and teachers of today's students prepared for school, they had a long list of supplies and back-breaking book bags. Thank goodness that can be a thing of the past for students today.   With the exception ...

Very interesting article. What are your thoughts?

My family and I have been going to Brown Chiropractic for over 7 years. We recently moved out of state and we continue to go see Dr. Brown. He and his staff are patient and caring. They always provide you with all necessary information and strive to better themselves. I highly recommend Brown Chiropractic to everyone without reservation!
