Dr. AJ Vazquez was introduced to Chiropractic Care after being active in high school and college athletics. He initially visited his family doctor and surgeon specialist with little change in his low back symptoms. He worked in a Cardiology lab when his boss (heart doctor) suggested that he try chiropractic for his low back injury. After a few weeks of therapy, exercise, and lifestyle modifications, Dr. Vazquez was able to return to exercise and a normal lifestyle. It was this personal experience that directed Dr. Vazquez into conservative care.

He believes that every adult has the right to know exactly what his or her diagnosis is, and what is needed to return to optimum health.

Dr. Vazquez’s favorite quote:
“Wellness is a lifestyle and not a theory. The body has a unique ability to heal. I believe that conservative care of most injuries enables the body to return to optimum health regardless of age.
“All patients should receive quality care at an affordable cost. At our office, we help our patients get the care that they expect and deserve.”
