His efforts, as a doctor of Chiropractic, are only to facilitate the restoration of proper function in order to eliminate pain and establish an overall state of “wellness.” As more and more healthcare consumers seek for conservative, drug-free, non-surgical solutions to their healthcare needs, Dr. Jesperson is confident that his “hands-on” chiropractic techniques combined with physiotherapy, nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices will increasingly be in greater demand.
