But consider a bowl of soup from a local soup and salad place that sources ingredients locally, or a fast takeout salad with organic chicken. These options exist!

I used to think people who developed back pain were lucky, especially if they developed it at a young age…. I know, that’s messed up right? But hear me out. So backtrack to my childhood: I grew up in the same world as you – a world in which Chiropractic is – for the most part – branded,
