Our Holistic Approach:

Doctors of Chiropractic practice a drug-free, natural, and holistic approach to healthcare. Chiropractic addresses the underlying cause of many painful symptoms and conditions involving the spine. We are committed to helping people reach their full health potential without the use of drugs or surgery. Read about what to expect at our office.

Chiropractic is the cornerstone for optimal spinal health and well-being. It is a branch of the healing arts that allows the body to heal naturally from the inside out, through the removal of nerve interference. When the nervous system has no interference, health can be expressed to its fullest potential.  Our technology and techniques are the most advanced in the chiropractic profession to date. Our office has both spinal decompression and cervical traction, which are non-surgical procedures for disc conditions. 

Chiropractic care may be your answer. We would be happy to schedule you for a complimentary consultation with one of the doctors.



Complementary Alternative Medicine patient surveys show that patient satisfaction with chiropractic care is very high. There is steadily increasing patient use of chiropractic in the United States, which has tripled in the past two decades." --Meeker, Haldeman (2002). Annals of Internal Medicine.

Now, the American College of Physicians recommends trying spinal manipulation or other non-drug methods BEFORE turning to OTC pain medications such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB) or naproxen (Aleve)-- Carr (2017).; Consumer Reports.

What Our Patients Say About Us

  • "The clinic is always full of smiling and friendly faces! Everyone is welcoming and wants to make your experience the best it can be. Dr. Monique White is absolutely wonderful. She listens carefully to your every need/ache/pain/worry and develops a treatment plan that best fits you. She is highly skilled and I am so thankful for the care she has given me. If you want the best, look no further!"
    Tori D.
  • "I see Monique and she is great. I have seen her for 6 months after having lower back surgery. I never realized the importance of chiropractic care until I did it regularly. If you are on the fence give it a shot for 2 weeks and feel the difference when you get out of bed."
    Mike R.
  • "There are not enough words to say how wonderful Dr. Monique and the entire team is at Advanced Physical Health. I suffered from lower back issues for at least 11-12 years and always balked at going to a chiropractor because of fear. My back issues had progressed to the point where my back was "going out" where I was literally unable to walk or move for days and usually would require a trip to the ER. Not only has she helped me with my back / neck issues but she now sees my husband and both of my kids. The entire staff is wonderful and all very caring. You feel like a part of their family and they care about you as a whole not just the issues that brought you to them. I could go on and on about how much I love Dr Monique. Take it from someone who had a very deep fear of just the thought of someone messing with my back..... that fear is gone."
    Julie W.
  • "I have been using Advanced Physical for several years. I love their attitude of we want to fix the problem and make you better. Your treated compassion and caring by all of the staff! Would give them a 10!!"
    Country F.
  • "I had back pains for several weeks when I decided to go to the chiropractor. When I called to schedule an appointment, they were able to get me in the next day. Dr. Monique did an assessment and has been working wonders on my back ever since! My pain was gone after seeing her 4 or 5 times. Dr. Monique and the staff are always very kind and efficient. I rarely have to wait to start treatments. I would definitely recommend Advanced Physical Health."
    Erin T.

    Valerie D.
  • "I've been adjusted by all 3 already, Dr White, Dr Carpentier and Dr Monique and they all are friendly and nice! Treat you like they care abt you and not just another job. I'm currently seeing Dr White and he has def helped my back from not hurting so much during the night. And you can always get in basically whatever time you need. Definitely recommend this place! 😊"
