I can't recommend Archetype enough.  Results say it all---20+ years of back and neck pain resolved.  Dr. John and his team addressed my issues with multiple treatment modalities and taught me how to maintain the good progress we made.  If you are hurting, go see them!

I had chronic pain in my upper back for years.  Several doctors, therapists, & chiropractors without any relief until Archetype and Dr. John.  I'm grateful for their services and believe in what they do.
