Do you need one or the other?

At Premier Chiropractic, we work with you to help you achieve your goals. Depending on your needs and goals, you might need to choose between active and passive rehabilitation. You might benefit from a combination of both. In fact, both active and passive therapies complement each other to help you improve your range of motion, reduce stiffness and soreness, and grow stronger day by day.
