Mechanicsville, Virginia — At Stover Chiropractic, P.C. I’m often asked about herbs and vitamines.  Honestly, I focus on providing the best adjustments I can and I do not feel I am the best source of information for herbs and such.  So I thought I’d pass on this information which comes from the UpperCervicalCare.com newsletter.
