    Dr. Dieter is a great Chiropractor! Dr. Dieter has helped me out with back and neck pan for over 5 years now. My back/neck feel almost 100% better after my visit with Dr. Dieter. I had never had a chiropractor before seeing him. I am suffering from extremely poor posture and neck pain due to the way I was sitting in the office all day. He educated me as to what was happening using X-Rays and other material, laid out a plan for me which is working great. Dr. Dieter is an awesome guy, always hel
