Coastal Chiropractic began in 2011 and is a direct result of Dr. White’s vision of what musculoskeletal healthcare should be: Patient centered, clinically proven, and cost effective. Striving to be on the cutting edge of alternative healthcare, Coastal Chiropractic continues to evolve.
Not only are we a multidisciplinary practice, but we also have an interdisciplinary
approach to your healthcare.
When necessary, we will effectively communicate with other healthcare professionals, on your behalf, to ensure the best possible outcome.
