As a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) Dr. Lopez is your primary spine care practitioner. He is specifically trained to provide front-line evaluation and management for spine-related conditions. He can guide you through a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment approach tailored to your diagnosis. When treated early and appropriately, most people benefit from a conservative approach to spine-related disorders and do not require surgical intervention or invasive treatment. This approach provides better outcomes, higher value, and overall better patient satisfaction. If your case does not respond to an adequate trial of conservative care Dr. Lopez will guide you to the right specialist and co-manage your treatment to ensure you receive the care you deserve. His main objective is to help you get back to your life as quickly as possible.
