Dr. Elaine Asyah Aquil: Our chiropractic story started 28 years ago. Dr. Aquil was one of the first African Americans to practice chiropractic in NJ. The first Chiropractic Assistant we hired actually was the mother of a 7 year old girl who was a patient with asthma. After seeing how well her daughter did under chiropractic care she was ecstatic. So we thought who would be better to work for us and tell the Chiropractic Story.

The thing that we always impress upon all our practice members is that Chiropractic is a Life Style and Being Healthy is a Choice. Seeing your medical doctor, eye doctor, and dentist is something you do all your life. Therefore you should make Spinal Care a part of your Life Style also. All Roads to Optimal Health Begin with A Healthy Spine. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, our center provides additional health care services including chiropractic care for a healthier pregnancy, pediatric chiropractic, nutritional counseling, chiropractic massage, stress relief, weight loss and much more!
