Chiropractic doctors practice natural, drugless, non-invasive health care and rely on the body's ability to self-heal. Sounds ideal, but just how does it work?

We look at the whole picture

Like other health-care providers, we follow a standard routine to gain information about the patient. We consult, review the case history, conduct a physical examination, and we may request laboratory analyses and/or x-rays. Unlike other health-care providers, however, chiropractic physicians also conduct a careful analysis of the patient's structure and pay particular attention to the spine. We also ask you about your life- Do you eat well? Exercise at all? How do you deal with stress? Do you have children? What do you do for work? And so on.

We seek the origin of the problem

Using this information, a diagnosis is made. Included in the diagnosis is the probable reason for your pain or discomfort. It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of the illness in order to eliminate it-we do not simply treat the symptoms.  If your roof is leaking, do you simply catch the drips in a bucket for years on end, or do you repair the roof to prevent it from leaking? Similarly, if the migraine headache you've had all week is being caused by misaligned vertebra and an irritated nerve, do you continue to take pain killers indefinitely, or do you realign the vertebra to prevent the pain? You get the picture.

We fix the origin of the problem

Chiropractors have a term for misalignments: subluxations. A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of the bones that protect the spinal cord. It's a leak in the roof. Or a kink in the wiring of your nervous system.  The severity of the subluxation can vary, and there are a number of potential contributing factors that can be physical, emotional, mental, or chemical. The subluxation can be caused by any number of incidents, from birth trauma to an auto accident to simple repetition or over-use.

  • Myths & Facts

    Myth #1 - Chiropractors are not real doctors. A chiropractic college grants a D.C. or Doctorate of Chiropractic degree. Chiropractors are licensed as health care providers in every U.S. state and dozens of countries around the world. While the competition for acceptance in chiropractic school is not

  • Chiropractic Objective

    What truly differentiates doctors of chiropractic from any other healthcare professionals is the fact that chiropractors are the only professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat what are called spinal subluxations. The word "subluxation" comes from the Latin words meaning "somewhat or slight"

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "In 2001, I was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease. Doctors wanted to put me on several drugs that were supposed to help ease the condition, but would not get rid of it, only slow it down. I was having some of the worst symptoms that had been described to me, when someone suggested I see Callahan Chiropractic. I decided to give them a shot at helping me. Between adjustments, nutrition, and advice about a healthier lifestyle, the problems that I was having have been virtually eliminated allowing me to go back to a normal life. Not only has Callahan Chiropractic helped me control this condition, but allowed me to feel better and become healthier overall."

  • "I awoke one morning and could barely move. Pain was shooting down my right leg. I have a curvature in my spine, but it had never bothered me like this before. I didn't know what happened, but I knew I had to do something about it. I had never seen a chiropractor before, so my husband called his chiropractor, Dr. Jon Callahan. I had to walk very slowly with a cane. I felt like a little old lady. Dr. Callahan explained that I had a pinched sciatica nerve and gave me my first treatment. I am a waitress and took two weeks off of work. During that time, my treatments and ice were my best friends. Dr. Callahan had helped me so much. My husband and I now get regular chiropractic care. I would recommend Dr. Callahan to anyone with neck or back problems."

  • "I used to suffer from chronic colds and sinus infections. In 1999, my mom suggested that I try chiropractic care to relieve some of my problems. Dr. Callahan suggested nutritional supplements and also gave me a list of foods that I should and should not eat. This really improved my overall health and helped with my sinus infections. I also discovered that I had some back problems, so Dr. Callahan x-rayed my spine and was able to find the source of my back pain. He gave m some adjustments in my neck that helped to alleviate the pain. Dr. Callahan and his staff are very friendly and care about people, making sure that they are healthy and stay healthy. This makes coming to Callahan Chiropractic even more worthwhile. I would recommend Dr. Callahan to anyone with colds or sinus infections."
