Featured Testimonials

“Past chiropractors did not focus on my upper cervical spine, which was the root of my issues, nor did they pay attention to my overall health, resulting in the need for continuous adjustments in the rest of my spine. Additionally, in some cases the adjustments from past chiropractors were harsh and painful. Dr. Trader is very different than any chiropractor I have seen in the past. She is thorough, precise, knowledgeable, and genuinely working to help me with my health issues. Each visit includes an exam and her adjustments are focused, precise and as minimal as possible to achieve results. Dr. Trader’s goal is to help me keep my spinal alignment and to have fewer, less frequent adjustments over time.”
–Heather T
“I have, since a teen, had pain in my neck and upper shoulders…I’ve had migraines for the past 25 years. With Dr. Kim’s care, my migraines are now few and far between and much less severe. If there are other aches and pains, given a short time after the adjustment the pains reside and life is so much freer and more enjoyable. I most definitely recommend her as a kind and honest doctor, who truly wants to help us be pain-free and live life to the fullest.”
