Dr. Christine O’Donohue, Chiropractor

“Chronic back pain brought me to Chiropractic. Everyone just assumed I would have pain forever. I was only 20 years old and sad to have a poor prognosis. I found a Chiropractor who explained to me that my ribs were not moving properly because of my scoliosis. After several adjustments and exercise instruction my pain decreased substantially. It just made sense that I needed to help others who were suffering unnecessarily. Sixteen years later I still love helping my patients feel better.” -Dr. Christine O’Donohue
