Dr. John Sikkema, D.C.
Dr. John Sikkema has been in private practice for 39 years. He had an office in New Jersey for 25 years and in Florida for 14 years . He is advanced proficiency rated in activator techniques.
Dr. John has taught advanced activator techniques to many chiropractors. He uses body motion to determine areas which needs to be "clicked" (activator technique). Dr. John does NOT use the same manual spinal manipulation ( "cracking" ) technique as Dr. Cheryl. Even though Dr. Cheryl's and Dr. John's chiropractic techniques differ, they both get great RESULTS.
