Chiropractic is preventative and deliberate by nature, whereas conventional medicine is the ambulance – it was designed to treat illness and disease, not prevent them in the first place with diet, exercise, positive mental attitude, and a healthy lifestyle including chiropractic care.

Why chiropractic care?
When asked why he became a Chiropractor, there is no hesitation in Gustavson’s response. When he played hockey on the university hockey team, he suffered a serious neck injury. Like most of us, he tried many forms of therapy, including medication. Finding that nothing was really helping him, he listened to a close friend and went to a Chiropractor. The rest as they say is history.
