After visiting Pragle Chiropractic for a consultation, I received Atlas Orthogonal (AO) treatment to realign my spine. The treatment reduced my upper back pain and headaches and significantly reduced the number of times I need to see a chiropractor for an adjustment. Following up with a massage has kept me on track and is a great way to relax. I highly recommend giving Pragle Chiropractic and Massage Therapy a try.  - Katie
