Christopher J. Long, DC
A native of Fresno, Dr. Long attended Buchanan High School and California State University Fresno. After attending Fresno State, Dr. Long graduated with honors and received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life Chiropractic College West in the bay area.
Dr. Long’s biggest passions are his Christian faith and his family: his wife Stephanie, daughter Hayden, son Brady. He loves hunting, fishing, traveling, watching Giants baseball and most of all spending time with family and friends.
Dr. Long practices the traditional philosophy of Chiropractic, which is subluxation and structural correction of the spine. Simply put, a subluxation is a misaligned vertebrae which interferes with nerve impulses. Nerve impulse is the electrical charge from the brain that regulates all function of the body and keeps us alive.
Although the traditional Chiropractor wants his patients to “feel better”, his primary focus is removing nerve interference and restructuring the spine to its most stable biomechanical position. This is done through a rehabilitation program of adjustments and spinal exercises.
