Top Newport Beach Chiropractor, Dr Gilak

As a dancer, I emphasize the importance of movement and spine health. I believe that a flexible spine is a crucial indicator of age, and I draw from my experience at a Chiropractic clinic in Newport Beach. I  stress the significance of body awareness through movement, focusing on improving core performance and spine strength. In a patient-centered clinic, the clinician's availability to help individuals reach their goals for enhanced movement and well-being is essential.
