Meet The Prebish Chiropractic Centre Team
We provide quality chiropractic healthcare in a professional and compassionate manner. We encourage open communication, promote patient education and are committed to the highest ethical standards in serving your chiropractic health care needs.
And while we generally meet people after they’ve lost their health, our commitment is two-fold:
1. Chiropractic Care For Pain Relief Care in Battle Creek
Many people seek care in our practice and have one goal: relief. So that’s where we start! During this initial stage of intensive care, we have several obligations:
- Uncover the underlying cause of the health problem
- Suggest a care plan to produce the fastest results possible
- Offer ways patients can participate in their recovery
- Explain the value of post-symptomatic wellness care
2. Overall Health And Wellness in Battle Creek
We’re committed to teaching our patients that true health is a journey, not a destination. Through educational opportunities (like this website), we hope to communicate the value of ongoing chiropractic care. Our desire is to see our practice members abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health (waiting for symptoms and then taking action), in favor of the emerging wellness model.
Most Importantly: You’re in Charge
Regardless of your health goals, please understand that we see ourselves as mere servants. You’re the boss! It’s your body, your health and your future. Our job is to offer you the finest chiropractic care possible in Battle Creek, make appropriate recommendations and work together to achieve your goals.
Take the first step towards relief by calling our Battle Creek practice today and making an appointment to discuss your health goals.
