Dr. Hesch Can Relate to Your Situation

Dr. Hesch’s injuries from an automobile accident left him frustrated with traditional and non-traditional treatment methods that simply did not work to his satisfaction.  Determined to find a better way, Dr. Hesch developed  The Hesch Method. This method of treatment examines the whole body, so that the source of the problem can be found and fixed, even if the source is not the obvious problem area. Other parts of your body that are linked to the painful area may actually be causing the problem!

Natural and Personalized Treatment Approach

The Hesch Method  is a natural treatment personalized for your unique body, using gentle hands on corrections that allow your body to respond from within.   By getting to the root of the problem pain issues are resolved quickly. Unlike other approaches that require long term repetitive treatment, this approach focuses on achieving your goals within a few visits.
