About Our Practice

Our practice specializes in treating a variety of conditions, from chronic low back and neck pain to rehabilitation following an injury or accident. We can also provide information about improving your diet, creating a healthier workplace, and increasing the overall quality of your health. We believe very strongly in developing a sense of teamwork between the doctor and the patient, this philosophy is an important part of why we get the good results that we do, and why so many of our patient choose to refer their friends, family, and co-workers for care.

The services and treatment strategies offered at Wachs Chiropractic Health Center are even more beneficial when used synergistically. Intergrating a sound exercise and nutrition program, with proper posture and musculoskeletal support, may allow you to achieve levels of performance, health, and wellness you could never have thought possible. A consultation with Dr. Wachs about how you can most benefit from what we have to offer is a first step toward better health.

Located midway between the Interstate 805 and Interstate 5 Freeways our location provides easy access for all our patients.
