Let Town Center Family Chiropractic Lead You to a Better Lifestyle.

Spine Success

Throughout our lives we come across pain that in some way is directed from our spine.

Our spine is the central core of our nervous system and these nerve fibers control the movements in our body. Our muscles and bones need these nerve fibers to work properly, so that our posture, movement, strength, and balance are working properly as well.

Staying active is the key to maintaining spine success.

Staying active in our lives is a key importance to maintaining spine success. When lack of activity is present your body will lose the energy needed to control the human body. Keeping active maintains and increases this ability to work properly.

Not only will you become physically injured by lack of being active, but also your mental focus in life decreases. You will become unproductive and fall into a downward state of losing energy. Eventually this will cause major problems with your body and physical exhaustion occurs regularly throughout your life.

Myths and Facts about Chiropractic

There are many myths out there about chiropractic. Let's set the record straight.

Click the tabs below to read more.

Myth #1: Chiropractors are not Real Doctors

The FACTS:

Chiropractors have the same level of education as medical doctors, and are licensed as primary health care doctors. The difference between chiropractors and medical doctors has to do with how they treat the human body. Where medical doctors rely on external chemical compounds to treat ailments, chiropractors focus on the structurally correcting the internal conditions, which causes the ailments in the first place. Because of this, chiropractic is highly effective in treating a wide range of conditions without resorting to taking drugs.

Myth #2: Chiropractic Adjustments are Dangerous

The FACTS:

This is just wrong, as a matter of fact; you are hundreds of times more likely to suffer an adverse reaction to taking an aspirin than you are from having a chiropractic adjustment. Most people don’t realize that there are more than 100,000 adverse reactions each year from taking a simple aspirin, while there are fewer than 100 adverse reactions to chiropractic adjustments. When you consider that there are over 3 million people being adjusted in one year, the risk from being adjusted is vanishing small.

Myth #3: Once you Start Chiropractic You Must Continue Forever

The FACTS:

While this is not strictly true, it is importantly to remember that ALL doctors continue to treat you for the rest of you life, at least ideally. For example, how often do you go to your dentist? Is it not true that your dentist will keep scheduling visits even when you have no tooth pain? We all learned at an early age the value of routine maintenance for our teeth, but for most of us we never learned the importance of the same type of routine maintenance for the rest of the body.

Myth #4: Medical Doctors don’t like Chiropractors

The FACTS:

For the most part there is little animosity towards chiropractors from the medical community. Maybe a few medical doctors don’t like chiropractors for one reason or another. As a matter fact more and more medical doctors and nurses are being treated by chiropractor every year. Chiropractors are now on staff at many major hospitals, the military, working at insurance companies and work side by side with medical doctors in private clinics.

Myth #5: People can Adjust Themselves by “Cracking” Their Neck or Back

The FACTS:

It would be almost impossible to adjust oneself in a way to free any fixations or correct any subluxations. Some people can get their neck or back to “pop”, but this usually only affects the segments that are not the true culprit and over time can lead to other problems. Just as you wouldn’t perform surgery on yourself, its best to leave the adjustments of your back and neck to the professional chiropractor. Even professionals cannot adjust themselves.

Myth #6: Spinal Adjustments Hurt

The FACTS:

Many patients feel instant relief immediately after their treatments, for obvious reasons patients suffering from severe neck or back pain may experience some discomfort, for most patients this in not the case, in fact most patients look forward to their chiropractic treatments.

The Power that Made the Body, Heals the Body.

Jenny

“I think of Chiropractic care as my fountain of youth. It greases my joints, mitigates old injuries, dulls my pains and lets me act much younger than my age, which is important after 60.”

Michael M., Software Engineer and Power Lifter

“When I began care my back felt compressed and I had frequent back discomfort. I had seen other Chiropractors before but I was looking for a more thorough and scientific approach. I find Dr. Steve to very knowledgeable and he has a good touch. I would recommend Dr. Steve to everyone, I have seen many chiropractors over the last 25 years and Dr. Steve is the best I have ever seen. I now have less pain, more stability and more strength. I have had an excellent overall experience at Town Center Family Chiropractic.”

Dr. David


“When you’re feeling good don’t push it, you’ll need to save that energy. When you’re feeling bad don’t worry about it, it will eventually go away.”- or something like that. Those words you gave me before the race ran through my head about a dozen times. There are two people that I can honestly say that if I hadn’t have had their help I wouldn’t have crossed that finish line. You are one of them. This is absolutely no exaggeration. I can’t thank you enough for the encouraging words and all the hours of help. You will forever be a big part of my Ironman experience. Thank you Dr. Steve.”

Donna K.

“Before seeing Dr. Steve I had excruciating pain in my lower back and neck. Every time I went to reach for something my neck and back muscles would tense up so much a shot of pain would make me stop. I had tried massages, stretches, icy hot, Motrin, ice, heating pads, just about everything with no luck. I knew the problem was deeper rooted so I tried chiropractic care. I committed to my care with Dr. Steve because I appreciated his open, honest, and practical approach to help me heal my pain. I am now pain free and I feel great! I recommend seeing Dr. Steve to everyone I speak with that complains of any ailment.”

Bo

“I had severe sciatic pain from my hip all the way down to my foot. I didn’t want to see a chiropractor but my husband convinced me to give it a try and I am so glad that I did. It made all the difference between living with severe daily pain and then improved pain free living. I can now walk upright and sleep better. I recommend Dr. Steve’s office to everybody I know.”

Jamie J.

“Before seeing Dr. Steve I was in pain on a daily basis. I couldn’t run and walking even hurt due to a fall 4 yrs prior. I was 6 months pregnant and unable to walk without pain when I decided to finally seek care. I choose chiropractic because I like that appointments are quick yet still soothing and relaxing. Chiropractic care made being pregnant a comfortable and enjoyable experience. With Dr. Steve’s help I can now walk and lay on my back without pain. I wish I came to Dr. Steve’s office several years ago.”

Brad L.

“I was experiencing tight muscles and a tingling sensation between my shoulder and spine. I could not stand more than a few minutes without it hurting. The chronic discomfort and proven results led me to chiropractic care. Thanks to Dr. Steve my issue is now a non-issue and my life is back to normal. I would recommend Dr. Steve to anyone with chronic pain or discomfort.”

Sue B.

“I had severe scoliosis resulting in neck and knee joint problems. I’ve seen a chiropractor since I was 13 and I can recognize good care when I see it. Dr. Steve is always able to find the hurting area even if I don’t tell him where it is. I love that his office treats you holistically. People just don’t realize how adjustments affect everything else going on. Chiropractic care has had a huge impact on my life. I really don’t function well without once a month adjustments. It helps me walk better, sleep better, and exist better! TCFC has uncompromising care, professionalism, privacy, humor, the newest techniques, and skilled competence. I recommend Dr. Steve’s office to children and adults. It’s not always an instant fix, but a process you can count on like getting dental checkups.”

Pat D.

“Before seeing Dr. Steve I had a locked left shoulder, extreme pain in my upper left arm, and tension in my neck and both shoulders. I had low energy and could not sleep on my left shoulder. I decided to receive care from Dr. Steve after bringing my grandson to his appointment. I was very impressed with how caring Dr. Steve was and how he took time with each patient. Since seeing Dr. Steve I feel 100% better and have more energy to do housework and my job. Chiropractic care has changed my lifestyle including my diet, exercise, and positive attitude. I recommend TCFC to anyone who has pain or a subluxation.”

Dudley L.

“I was skeptical about chiropractic care at first. After 2+ years of regular treatment I rarely have the chronic back pain that I thought was a way of life.”

Terri R.

I had such bad shoulder pain I couldn’t sleep or work. I had always feared chiropractic and “popping” things back into place. Although I came in for my shoulder, after the body analysis I realized what the MRI’s didn’t tell me. My hip was out of alignment from a car accident 5+ years before. Thanks to Dr. Steve I feel better and have a bounce in my step. I am now more aware of my body and its limitations. With my new knowledge I manage my pain better and take better care of my health. My friends have even noticed my improved energy and attitude after adjustments. I love coming to see Dr. Steve and I have been recommending him to everyone.

Mike Kielty

"Before seeing Dr. Steve I hurt everywhere and could no longer run. I had tried everything before seeking chiropractic care, as I was a chiropractic nonbeliever. Dr. Steve’s athletic background and knowledge of the mechanics of running appealed to me. After being under Dr. Steve’s care I am now 100% better and can run again. My experience at his office has been all positive and I would recommend chiropractic care to everybody!"

Christine L.

“Before seeing Dr. Steve I was in pain, tired, and felt out of balance. I decided to seek chiropractic care after meeting Dr. Steve. I have had chiropractic care before as its holistic approach has always appealed to me. Dr. Steve’s care has made a huge difference in my life and my bi-weekly check-ins keep me grounded and connected with my mind and body. I am now more conscious of how I hold myself and I know how to position my body so as not to illicit pain. Dr. Steve is always professional, encouraging, and never condescending. I recommend his office to everyone.”

Tristan L.

Hear from some of our HAPPY patients….
“Before seeing Dr. Steve I experienced pain from exercise and daily living activities such as picking up my kids and carrying groceries. I decided to seek chiropractic help because I wanted more frequent care from someone who would not just prescribe drugs as an easy answer. Since seeing Dr. Steve, I have decreased pain and discomfort, and I recover much faster from injuries. I enjoy having a preventative health care provider who knows my lifestyle and cares about my future well-being. I will continue to be under Dr. Steve’s care as part of my overall healthcare and preventative maintenance. I recommend Town Center Family Chiropractic to anyone who is looking to stop current pain, prevent future pain, and invest in their overall health.”
