  • When I injured my back, I was able to promptly receive treatment from Dr. Lyons at Advanced Chiropractic & Rehab. After a few sessions of treatment at the facility, and following the home exercise instructions, I quickly saw results and have since made a full recovery. The staff was very friendly and professional. Additionally, Dr. Lyons was very informative about exactly what had happened to my back and provided great advice to avoid a similar injury in the future. I strongly recommend Advanced Chiropractic & Rehab for treatment.
