    Dr. Ross A. Gardner uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient’s lives, whether they are having problems with back pain, neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Gardner takes a ‘head to toe’ approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Gardner will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient’s individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractors, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.

    Dr. Ross Gardner believes that through full-spine adjusting, exercising regularly, and good nutrition, you too can accelerate to a better quality of life. Dr. Ross Gardner is a Vero Beach chiropractic physician who proudly serves Vero Beach, Indian River County, St. Lucie County and the surrounding communities in FL.
