Dr. Sherr truly enjoys helping and healing others along their path to optimal health. A champion of the philosophy of chiropractic, which emphasizes the uniqueness of each individual and views health as a dynamic process involving the body, mind and heart rather than merely an absence of disease symptoms, Dr. Sherr teaches that each person’s journey toward optimal health and well being is a personal one. In his practice, he cares for healthy children and adults as well as those with chronic illness, musculoskeletal illness, and autism.
