He currently specializes in family care (including children and seniors) athletic care, and injury care. Dr. Powers uses a multi-pronged approach to health care, such as proper nutrition, cold laser therapy, massage therapy, proper ergonomics, stretches and exercises and, most importantly, keeping your nervous system free from interference with gentle spinal adjustments.
