Dr. La Ruffa emphasizes improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness through integrated modalities. People, physicians and insurers are recognizing the benefit of seeking alternative medical care that will help patients achieve relief from pain and maintain optimal health, restoration of function, and improvement of the quality of life.

    La Ruffa Chiropractic & Sports Rehab is family oriented, treating people of all age groups. The focus of the practice is treating people suffering from neuromuscular disorders, i.e. sports injuries, rotator cuff injuries, headaches, back and neck pain, as well as problems from auto or work-related injuries.
