Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I find Thrive Chiropractic to be an oasis of positive people from the front desk staff to the massage therapists and certainly Dr. Allison Scholes. Dr. Allison takes time to do the adjustments I need with knowledge and compassion. She builds community with fun events like the Harvest party I attended this evening."
    Marianne J.
  • "What a great place to keep myself in sync. I start off with a great adjustment then follow it with a massage along with some tips on how to eat better and exercises to keep me fit."
    Cathy W.
  • "Dr. Allison is amazing! She is helping me recover from a car accident where I was rear-ended. After only a few adjustments, I have more range of motion in my neck and back and less pain! She's also treating my husband, grandma, and boys!"
