Dr. Elke Starr

At Family Chiropractic, I work to integrate as many different aspects of health as I can, which is why I find it so valuable to be able to work with other alternative medicine practitioners, including a Registered Massage Therapist and a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine. My treatments include traditional chiropractic adjustments, soft tissue therapy, stretching, rehabilitation therapy, and of course patient education about lifestyle and nutrition.

I love it when patients ask me questions about their diagnosis and how the treatments are working to get them better, and I often hear patients exclaiming over their new understanding of their condition. I frequently get compliments from patients about the amount of time I spend explaining everything to them.

Whether you require one treatment or many, my goal is to have you leave with a healthier spine and healthier lifestyle than you had before you even got injured.
