We tailor specific care plans to meet each individual’s needs, goals, and unique medical and physical conditions. We specialize in many different ways of adjusting including low force, flexion-distraction, and diversified techniques.

  • ""I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received . I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received.""

  • ""As a court reporter, using my hands to type on a daily basis is a requirement. The work is speedy and can often last for hours at a time. Several months ago, every movement I made became excruciatingly painful. I started seeing Dr. Traficante and got started on a program that helped right away. The doctor stressed the importance of my posture and proper hand and arm placement.""

  • ""I have benefited tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Traficante Family Chiropractic. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine - golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible.""

  • ""Dr. Brandon has allowed me to be headache free for quite some time now. I used to have daily nagging headaches that often would turn into a migraine leaving me unable to function. For the longest time, I thought I could just keep taking medication to have the pain subside.""
