Patient Rating:

“Dr. Kerr is great! He found a damaged disc from the X-rays that were taken that day!It is amazing that I have been to chiropractors who also looked at X-rays of my back and could not see the damaged disc. Dr. Kerr diagnosed me with degenerative disc disease. Recommended physical therapy.attended physical therapy for four weeks and learned excersizes that strengthened my back. It is great that I do not need surgery!!”
