Why Pro-Active Chiropractic and Wellness?

For over four decades and counting, Pro-Active Chiropractic and Wellness (formerly the Cowan Chiropractic Clinic) has delivered a sensible, proactive approach to preventative spinal care and fitness through a program of spinal adjustments, targeted stretching, and core exercise. We also offer orthotics, nutritional supplements and classes in healthy living, such as body detoxification, proper eating habits, weight management, smoking cessation, and stress control.

Our care is designed to keep you healthy and help prevent chronic conditions from occurring. With chiropractic care and good lifestyle choices, life should be like a candle, burning brightly to the very end, flickering once or twice and then going out. As one author said, it should not be "Just one damn thing after another."

Prevention and good lifestyle choices decrease the incidence of sickness and disease and dramatically lowers the cost of healthcare.
