Meet the Arora Family Chiropractic Team
Meet Dr. Nitan Arora
A First Encounter With Chiropractic
While attending university, Dr. Arora knew he was interested in health care, but wasn’t quite sure what career he wanted to choose. After a football injury, his coach, who was a chiropractor, encouraged him to see how chiropractic could help him. The amazing results Dr. Arora experienced triggered his interest in chiropractic as a profession. Eventually, he decided it was a perfect fit for him and pursued it as a career.
“When I learned that the spine and nervous system control and coordinate all functions in the body, it resonated with me. I liked the idea of healing and helping people by working with their spines, no medication needed.”
