Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • ""I can't describe what Focus has done for me. I was in so much pain, especially the way my baby was positioned. After our visit, I went to the OB and he did an ultra sound. My baby literally turned right after I saw you and is now head down. We are both much happier and more comfortable. Not only that, but my fluids were low but after being adjusted they increased. Now his kicks don't hurt as much and he is even moving and kicking more now that the adjustment made room for him. After experiencing an adjustment, my muscles are more relaxed. You guys are amazing and I feel so grateful that you helped me and I look forward to my next visit. I have been to many chiropractors and no one has helped me like Focus Chiropractic. They really know what they are doing and I felt so comfortable there.""

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
