A letter from Dr. John Cannon

My name is Dr. John Cannon, I’m a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic class of 2005 and the Brimhall School of Holistic Care.

Perhaps you have heard about chiropractic from your family or friends. Isn’t it interesting how everyone has a different version of what chiropractors do. I would like to explain my approach to chiropractic to you and why I know I can help you and your family enjoy a healthier lifestyle.

In truth, chiropractic is not about your back at all. It’s about keeping your nerve system healthy and functioning at 100% of its capability.

Many patients come to us in pain, wanting immediate relief so they can get back to their normal routine. While I understand a patient’s desire to be free of pain ASAP, what really needs to be addressed is the deeper, more complex problem that is preventing your nerve system from keeping you healthy. If you don’t get to the cause of this interference, you’ll just be back looking for a quick fix for your pain again. Address the true cause, and you'll address symptoms.
I'm not here to pressure you into receiving care you don’t need or want. But it's important for me to offer a holistic approach to your care.

Working together to identify and correct the cause of your pain symptoms, we can restore the proper function of your nerve system and bring you back to a state of total health and well-being! I have the utmost confidence we can help you and your family resolve whatever health issues you might have.

Kind Regards,
Dr. John Cannon, DC, BCAO
