Dr. Cindy Perkins discovered chiropractic when a track injury during high school left her in pain and unable to perform. The recovery, through chiropractic treatment, inspired her to help others in their pursuit of natural health care. Dr. Perkins believes that not only spinal, but total-body health and wellness is important to function at optimum levels. As we are all different, Dr. Perkins believes it is vitally important to customize the treatment for each individual using a variety of techniques.

Not only does she enjoy treating children of all ages, but she has a special interest in the treatment of pregnant women and helping to educate them on the ways in which chiropractic care can benefit them through all stages of pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
