Jennifer Hess, DC, MPH, PhD has been in private chiropractic practice for 27 years. "I treat musculoskeletal pain and injury, including muscle strains and ligament sprains, disc injuries, headaches, neck and back pain, and TMJ."
"In my practice I review the functional causes of pain and discomfort. In addition to orthopedic and neurological tests, I evaluate posture and gait and review work and home activities to identify the root causes of pain and injury. These frequently result from muscle imbalances which develop over time." Care is comprehensive and includes tailored exercises for rehabilitation and prevention.
