"Over the years, I have had nagging knee & hip pains due to injuries that I sustained during my youth. After going thru numerous specialists, x-rays, and MRIs, I finally asked a friend of mine who works closely with many professional athletes for advice. His recommendation go to Athletes Care! I began seeing chiropractor Amrita Kharkar in the summer of 2013. Through the use of chiropractic techniques, including Active Release Techniques & Acupuncture, I can honestly say that I have definitely seen major improvements throughout. This has not only enabled me to return to playing recreational sports, but to stay active with my two young children. I have become a big believer in Chiropractic care & would recommend Athletes Care without any hesitation." - Navi Dhami
"Dr. Amrita is first and foremost very professional and friendly. When I met her, she took her time and asked me relevant questions pertaining to my injury. I subsequently saw her 4 more times, each time relieving the tension in my neck, loosen up the muscles. I am very happy that I had her treat my issue. I would most definitely go back and see her again" - Efia
