Our Staff – Chiropractor/Acupuncturist

mama&avaAt Motion Chiropractic and Acupuncture we recognize that your choice of a chiropractor and acupuncturist is driven both by the doctor’s competency and personality. With chiropractic and acupuncture problems, you need a doctor who is experienced, understanding and supportive. You get this caring attitude from the staff at Motion Chiropractic and Acupuncture every day. We work with you, in a personalized manner, to keep you informed about your health issues. Dr. Ritter has kept her practice on the smaller side so that she can spend a substantial amount of time with each patient during each visit. She only schedules one person at a time so that you generally shouldn’t have to wait to be seen. We look forward to getting to know you.
