Who We AreHarbor Chiropractic uses a more systemic approach to Chiropractic medicine. Patient care is still centered around the chiropractic adjustment but the use of soft tissue modalities and therapeutic exercises are utilized often.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY ABOUT US
Dr. Heather and her team are amazing. I suffer from lower back pain, neck pain and knee pain. She always makes me feel better. I have been to many chiropractors over the years and Dr. Heather outshines them all. I highly recommend Harbor Chiropractic.
Dr Heather and staff are amazing! From the first visit I had amazing care. When a treatment plan was difficult at first (due to my work schedule), Dr Heather worked with me to find a treatment plan that worked for me and didn’t waste my time or money! She helped me understand that it was necessary to come often at first to make sure my body was stabilized. (You can’t get abs from going to the gym only one time!) Now I only go once a month for maintenance and I feel great!
