Referrals are our bread and butter

“Most of my patients come to me as referrals from other patients or practitioners. This makes me extra motivated to give you the best care so that you’ll feel comfortable sending your family and friends to me.” —Pamela Abramson-Levine, DC, family practice non-force chiropractor in Santa Monica, California
If you don’t follow instructions well, the treatment won’t work well
“When patients do not follow all my at-home care prescriptions, it hinders my ability to help them. I can adjust you and get your body aligned properly, but if you are not doing the therapeutic exercises I prescribe, or if you are continuing to eat a highly inflammatory diet, you are not going to see the best results. Optimal results occur when the entire program prescribed is followed properly.” —Pamela Abramson-Levine

You don’t have to snap, crackle, pop to get results
“There are many different techniques within the chiropractic profession. Some of them are low force, like Directional Non-Force Technique (DNFT). With this technique, there are no forceful manipulations, so you won’t hear the usual cracking or popping. It’s a very gentle and effective approach to getting the body back into proper alignment.” —Pamela Abramson-Levine
