Evaluation

A difference of greater than 1/4” in any of the positions is clinically significant. Uneven leg length is a common sign of spinal problems that often respond to chiropractic care. Find out if we can help. Call Mark F. Herman, Chiropractic Physician now to arrange a more thorough examination!
