Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Had a super positive experience. Great to have a qualified chiropractor in the network who gives superb adjustments with great technique and real care for the customer. First time I have had a follow up call from the Doctor just to check on me. Nice touch."
    Derrick M., Palmyra, VA
  • "Cantu and his staff is excellent. I had a problem with my lower back and after a few visits, I was finally back to normal. Dr. Cantu understood the whole problem and easily pin pointed how to fix it and get everything back to normal. I was in and out very quickly for every visit. He did everything needed and then some. He's great and so is his staff. I will certainly go back when needed and always recommend his name."
    Chris E., Troy, VA
  • "The Chiropractic Office promptly, effectively, and professionally addressed my chiropractic needs. The doctors and staff are courteous and friendly. If I need chiropractic treatment in the future, I will definitely go there again."
    Terry L., Barboursville, VA
  • "Over the past 35 years I have had the good fortune to meet and know Dr. Walker both professionally and as a patient. His expertise and focus on the patient is outstanding. Over the past 10 yrs I have also met and appreciated the skills and knowledge of Dr. Cantu who has looked after me and my family as has Dr. Walker. I have referred many of my patients to the practice because I knew that they would be treated extremely well and never be taken advantage of. I still feel the same about them."
    Dr. Ajgaonkar, M.D. (Retired), Charlottesville
  • "I have been a patient for several years. They are totally focused on healing your body! I have been in the position where I was barely able to get in the door. And in just one treatment, feeling much better. I totally trust these guys with my back pain and Health."
    Edwin H., Keswick, VA

Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
