Dr. Zimmel believes that chiropractic is the centrum of wellness. Once the nervous system is allowed to bring its information to the rest of the body without interference, the body then needs to be treated holistically which includes but is not limited to proper diet, exercise and spirituality.


" There is no panacea when it comes to health and wellness. All aspects of the body must be addressed in order to achieve optimum function or health! Everyone needs to get involved in their own lifestyle to achieve health and wellness."
- Dr. Douglas Zimmel
