Chiropractic is craftsmanship, science, and reasoning that is worried about appropriate body mechanics.
Spinal decompression on the DRX9000 involves the application of forces logarithmically to elongate the spine without causing the muscles that guard the spine to contract.
We offer multiple options for weight loss, including nutritional consulting. A specific approach will be tailored for your personal needs.
We offer the best in massage and soft tissue techniques. Our licensed therapists have passed state tests and are required to continue their education every year by state law. Some of the techniques they offer include Swedish, hot stone, lymph massage, aromatherapy, neuromuscular, and trigger point.
Depending on your specific case, rehabilitation procedures may vary after you have finished your course of decompression. Strengthening of the soft tissue around the spine, such as the musculature, tendons and ligaments needs to be accomplished.

"I can't say enough great things about Dr. Everett. The main thing is trust. I completely trust Dr Everett to take care of whatever my current problem is, and I have had head to toe issues. I have been a client since 1987, and I now live in Las Vegas. I schedule an appointment every time I come back to Tennessee because no other chiropractor has been able to address the issue at hand. When my daughter was a toddler, she had ear infections, and she had tubes put into her ears. They came out, she got sick again. I carried her to Dr Everett, no more ear infections. I carried her for migraines, and also for a turned in foot that had been treated by a specialist and was diagnosed as needing braces and special shoes. After a couple of visits to Dr Everett she could run and not fall. I am so thankful for Dr Everett."
"Have always been a fan of Family Chiropractic. I didn't come for a while, life just gets in the way sometimes. Finally, made the right decision to come back, it was long time over due. So, glad I made the decision to come back. Suffered since December, but, now, after only a month have seen a 95% improvement. And, the entire staff is wonderful!"
"I have been going to family chiropractic now for 5 years. I started because I was having lower back problems and a friend recommended trying family chiropractic. After about 6 visits my back pain had all but gone away. I have been on a maintain program of 1 visit per month since then. I feel great now and do what ever I want to do."
