Want to remove your pain?


Relieve pain and inflammation with chiropractic adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments can help remove pain and injuries like sciatica, neck pain, low back pain and headaches. Dr. Ressler, Oviedo/Winter Springs, FL chiropractor, treats many conditions with an adjusting instrument called an "activator". It is a spring-loaded instrument that sends a gentle force into the joint and moves it back into position. The activator method is low force, precise and does not involve cracking or twisting. This method can also help injuries to the wrists, shoulders, knees and ankles. It is absolutely pain free and gives them fantastic results!
