About 6 years ago I suffered from a severe work-related neck injury. I needed surgery and unfortunately, it wasn’t successful. About 2 years later I got rear-ended in a car accident and it caused even more damage to my neck. I was then referred to Mauricio Chiropractic and got weekly treatments.
They’ve helped live through my neck problems. I am deeply grateful for all they’ve done for me. I can’t thank them enough!
