Benefits of Network Care from Network Family Chiropractic

“Network Care has a direct effect on client self-reported wellness which is twice that expected from healthy lifestyle practices (exercise, risk avoidance, optimal food choices). Network also has a major indirect effect on wellness promoting healthy life-style choices.”
