Dr. J.P. Yurgel – DC
Dr. J.P. Yurgel graduated from Life University of Chiropractic West, in CA. He is both a healer and chiropractor specializing in Bio-Geometric Integration. He educates his patients to understand their body’s innate ability to heal with an emphasis on mind – body integration. His approach to chiropractic care supports the mindset that nerve interference from either physical trauma or mental, chemical, emotional stress, will manifest into subluxation. Subluxation encourages misalignment of the vertebra which facilitates nerve dysfunction. This causes imbalance in your body and may affect your muscles, organs, tissues, your mental state as well as your emotional state.
