Dr. Nicholas Rapp graduated with high honors from Northwestern Health Sciences University with a Doctorate in Chiropractic and a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Dr. Rapp received a graduate certificate in Activator methods. Dr. Rapp focuses his efforts on nutritional approaches to maintaining an optimal health status and specifically treating diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, dyslipedemia (ie: high cholesterol), UC and Crohn's disease with lifestyle and nutraceutical interventions.
A common misconception is that chiropractic care is only good for low back pain, disc problems, neck pain, sciatica, whiplash, & other spine related problems. While it is true anyone suffering from these or similar problems should consult a chiropractic physician, chiropractic is also able to assist in correcting and stabilizing many other sources of dysfunction in the body. Far too often our health care system uses extensive and invasive procedures before a more conservative approach is taken.
We believe in empowering you to take control of your health care. Education-knowledge is that empowerment, because if you do not understand why you are doing something, the less likely you are to do it.
