    I arrived at Abundant Life with Sciatica and through treatments I have gradually and noticeably improved. I would recommend Abundant Life Chiropractic as it has solved my health issues. -John

    I came to Abundant Life for sleep issues because of hot flashes and then I tweaked my back. Since starting care, my sleep is greatly improved and my back situation improved quickly. I would definitely recommend care at Abundant Life. -Karen B.

    I originally came to see Dr. Knight for allergies and sinus problems. Since starting care I can breathe better, I don’t break out in hives as much and I don’t have the ringing in my right ear. I wish I would've known Dr. Knight years ago. -Michelle M.
