    "I never really thought of seeing a chiropractor, but I eventually broke down when I was having so much pain I couldn't sleep. Dr. V is great told me like it is and didn't sugar coat it. I was finally able to sleep without so much pain. It also helped with my headaches. The staff is super friendly and always make me and my kids feel welcome. Now my kids get adjusted there."

    Melissa W

    "After being told by three emt and a medical doctor that they could not help me with a subluxation in my left hip, paying $100 for a shot of a drug I can’t even pronounce and a note to go back to work, I went in to see Dr. Vranna and he fixed my leg in less then 3 minutes with minimal pain. After so many issues all it took was a little tug to fix my problem. I have been seeing him for a while and will continue to go back."

    Dani H.

    "Dr. Vranna is a most excellent chiropractor who has your best health in mind. He is not afraid to refer you to other medical care physicians as soon as he sees the need."

    Rodney H.

    "Chiropractic care gave a 70 year old his golf swing back! I had pinched nerves in my neck for a year. My gold game was getting worse. After a couple of months, my swing came back. On the golf course I hit my drive 250 yards: farther than the young men with me!"
