Elk Valley Family Chiropractor, 831 7th Ave 520-423-3003

The Elk Valley Family Chiropractor clinic has purchased an x-ray machine in the interest of serving their clients better. In order to utilise this new piece of equipment, a room was needed to perform x-rays and more space was needed at the office as well. Dr. Mike Rumpel and crew of Elk Valley Family Chiropractor will be relocating this August to 1192 7th Ave, just down the street while renovations take place at the clinic – extending the length of the building, adding more rooms and space, handicap lift access and changing the layout for better flow.

“This will be a very exciting project, we are looking forward to staying on the leading edge of chiropractic wellness care,” says Dr. Rumpel.
