    "For years, I was unable to walk properly due to pain in my left leg. Despite paying $500 to my orthopedist, he was unable to find any problem. Right at the first visit, Dr. Peterson found that the problem was in my hip area and treating the root cause will alleviate the pain. Thanks to Dr. Peterson, the pain is gone and I can continue with a normal life once again."



    "Can you imagine even turning your head can be a problem? Even if I managed to do so forcefully, a searing pain used to run down my arms. This was followed by excruciating pain in the fingers as if they were dipped in boiling water. That’s when I decided to call Peterson Chiropractic and Wellness. Though I had not heard about them, I think it was the wisest decision of my life. Both Dr. Nicholas and Dr. Peterson spent considerable time understanding the root cause of problem. During the treatment period, I could tell their methods were working. I am leading a normal life now. I can move around freely without having to think about any pain. I would highly recommend Peterson Chiropractic and Wellness to everyone."
