Dr. Natalie Cordova
I was told it was “just a phase” I was going through. I would get pain and numbness that ran down my right leg every time I’d get on a bicycle. I just didn’t make sense! After an examination with a chiropractor, I understood the problem. I received a few chiropractic adjustments and the pain was gone! I knew then that I wanted to touch the lives of others in this same way, so I set out to become a chiropractor. Dr. Natalie Cordova practices at our Galleria area location.
