I have had back pain for years and never sought out help. after daily headaches and body pain I visited the joint in the Downey landing, I let them know exactly what hurt and they assured me that they can help me. and they have. Ive noticed less aches and pains, increased mobility and head aches are rare. I've let all my friends and family know about my experience here and the benefits they can receive from chiropractic care at a affordable price.
