Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

"I am honored by the privilege of partnering with patients to successfully achieve our treatment goals through clinical technique, patient education, and mutual commitment."

Dr. Usman implements hands-on chiropractic manipulative/mobilization techniques, myofascial therapy including trigger point therapy, as well as stretching and strengthening exercises in her treatment to reduce or relieve patients of their complaints.
