From Our Patients

Pleasantly surprised with the Chiropractic Care.

When I came to Salmon River Chiropractic, I was pleasantly surprised. I not only found someone who treats pain, but like me, believes in long term care and prevention. Dr. Coffey and Dr. Ingwersen have become trusted friends. I will always be thankful for the person who was willing to share their gift certificate with me so I could experience the healing power from the doctors at Salmon River Chiropractic. Jerry and Vicki
