Personal Chiropractic Story:

Dr. Cara has been under chiropractic care since the age of 8 years old, when she injured her back on the school playground. The results she achieved through chiropractic care led her to become the family oriented chiropractor that she is today. 

Dr. Cara and her husband, Brian, have two sons, Wesley and Andrew, who were both born at home and adjusted since birth, because she understands that chiropractic care, at a young age, is essential to the growth of a healthy body.

In addition to chiropractic care, Dr. Cara continues to study the benefits and uses of essential oils in relation to overall health of the body and the home. She will be hosting informational classes in the office a few times a year to educate those attending on how to have a healthier home with less chemical interference on the body.

Dr. Cara has a passion for serving others and cannot imagine doing anything else. She looks forward to helping you and your family!

Serving the Downriver Area for over 34 years!

  • "The staff, they make this place amazing. If you need an adjustment or a massage check everyone out. The staff are helpful in finding you the type of therapist you need for your massage, and each doctor is pretty amazing, in their quality of care and concern for you as a client while you are on their tables."
