Cami Walker: “Chiropractic care has always been an integral part of my treatment routine to help manage my MS. It helps me stay mobile and pain-free. I remember going to see my chiropractor in San Francisco for the first time. I had been in excruciating pain for months and after one session with him the pain was 80% better. I thought he was a miracle worker. Ever since then, I have combined chiropractic along with many other conventional and non-conventional treatments to keep myself well and my MS at bay.”
