Why choose Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractic care allows your body to heal naturally through manual therapy techniques, nutritional counseling, and therapeutic exercises. It is a great choice for those who would like to avoid taking drugs or undergoing surgical procedures.

Are chiropractors doctors?

 Yes! Doctors of chiropractic (DC) are highly trained medical professionals who complete specialized training, must pass four board examinations, and complete state requirements.

Is chiropractic care safe?

Yes! Chiropractic care is safe, effective, and generally free of side effects. There is a common misconception from movies and television that spinal adjustments rely on power and force. Adjustments actually rely on proper angles and hand movements. At Action Chiropractic, we focus on gentle methods and purposely utilize techniques that cause less soreness and are easier for the body to adapt.

How many sessions do you need?

The number of sessions changes depending on the patient! Dr. Chris works with each client to develop a custom health plan to treat your unique needs.

But, as a chiropractor, you have to say that chiropractic care is the best solution, right?

Chiropractic care is extremely effective at treating a variety of conditions! Dr. Chris and his team, however, are committed to helping you find the right solution for your health journey. This might mean chiropractic care, but it could also include a referral to other area specialists if he believes that your condition will not fully be resolved with chiropractic care. We are your health advocates!
