Need a Chiropractor?

I have had great experiences with both of these practitioners, both in the East Bay, who use very different techniques:

Dr. Ginny Howe practices Directional Non-Force technique

Dr. John Beall practices more traditional chiropractic technique, as well as Active Release technique, and is an avid runner himself:
