About Dr. Chris Cooper

I am a chiropractor who specializes in headaches and vertigo. I’ve had so many people come into my office with chronic headaches that won’t go away.

Many of my patients tell me the headache and dizziness are gone after one treatment. My goal is to help everyone feel their best.
