Dr. Anthony Avedisian
My practice of 20 years is dedicated to providing patients with the highest quality and effective chiropractic care for a variety of musculoskeletal complaints. This includes neck pain, headaches, lower back pain, and most any type of joint immobility.
My aim is to identify the source of the problem and specialize the treatment necessary to resolve the condition as quickly as possible.
Together we will examine factors in your daily life which contribute to the development of your symptoms. I will also provide the guidance necessary to help you live a more comfortable and pain free life.
