Dr. Dalya Rubanenko, DC





















  • "I was referred to Dr. Dalya several years ago by a close friend. Prior to seeing Dr. Dalya, I had suffered chronic lower back pain (sometimes quite severe) on and off for 20 years. I had been treated by other chiropractors and practitioners generally resulting in limited and short term relief from symptoms.

    Dr. Dalya treated me with a combination of chiropractic care, physical therapy and exercise to strengthen the lower back and "core" muscles. The results have been simply amazing. My chronic back pain has simply gone away!

    Dr. Dalya is a very dedicated, competent, caring and fun person. I highly recommend her."
