Bates is the BEST. The spine is the power cord of the body. If it gets a "kink", nerves will be affected. For the past 11 years, whenever I feel weakness, am slow to heal, or develop the "back cough", I know I have subluxations and Dr. Bates knows how to pin point areas on the spine that are causing problems. After years of poor posture and vision related head positioning, my tailbone seemed to just collapse one day and my back and legs were burning and itching. I was a skeptic but in such desperation, I found Dr. Bates in the yellow pages and made and appointment. Now, I am a believer. After and exam and exercises and weekly adjustments, all of the symptoms stopped and I was able to recommend people with CONFIDENCE to Dr. Bates and assure them that chiropractic makes sound sense. Dr. Bates will work with you on a pay plan if you don't have insurance and he will put you on the right track with hands on adjustments AND EDUCATION.

Initially I was very nervous to have adjustments & had no idea of all the benefits chiropractic could provide! Not only I immediately felt like my spine & posture have been moved back into alignment but in everything Ido throughout the day,I see a marked improvement in my attention to my sitting / standing posture. My lower back pain and tightness of my neck & shoulders has greatly improved with my visits use of the traction wobble chair! Now I Love my visits!! Thank you
