Welcome To Naples Valley Chiropractic

Health can be defined in many different ways. Many modern definitions describe health as “freedom from disease and ailment.” But health is not merely the absence of sickness and disease, health is far more. We should not set our standards for personal health so low as to be content with simply being devoid of outwardly signs of illness. Just because we are not sick by no means implies we are therefore healthy. To truly have your health is to have wellness in your life.

Health does not come in the form of a drug or a pill. To obtain optimal health and have wellness in your life, while not difficult, requires commitment. It begins with developing a positive mental attitude and understanding and adopting the principles of a healthy lifestyle.

"It is the body that is the hero, not science, not antibiotics, not machines or new devices. The task of the physician today is what it has always been, to help the body do what it has learned so well to do on its own during its unending struggle for survival: to heal itself."
