Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.


The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.

D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.

What is non-surgical spinal decompression?

Like spinal traction, the spine will be gently elongated at a set time, weight and angle. Non-surgical spinal decompression is a conservative approach to treat many different disorders that affect the spine. It utilizes a treatment table, different harnesses and a pully system to alleviate nerve compression. A decompression table applies equal amount of pressure on the vertebrate columns, stretches the spine, creating increased space between the vertebrae, and improving the flow of nutrients through the discs. The injuries heal slowly and steadily after regular decompression treatment sessions.

What conditions does non-surgical decompression treat?

• Sciatica

• Herniated Discs

• Bulging Discs

• Degenerative Disc Disease

• Disc extrusions

• Scoliosis

• Lower back pain

• Neck pain

What Some Of Patients Have To Say...

"Dr. Jim is very professional and cares about his patients. He helped my husband with his back issues from years of football, construction, and weightlifting. He was literally crooked. My husband was seen for about 6 months to a year and Dr. Jim provided guidance and treated him based on the x-rays, as he should. This man knows what he is doing and I highly recommend him."

"I didn't know what to expect on my first visit to a chiropractor but I was more than happy with my experience here. Dr. Jim is always polite, professional, and always willing to answer any questions. I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone, it is a very friendly and welcoming environment."

"Dr. D is wonderful! I was nervous to go to a chiropractor but my back pain was just unbearable. I went and had a consultation with doc, he went over everything he would do, I went and had X-rays done and over a year later, I cannot wait to go get adjusted each time. Dr. Dougherty makes me always feel great and refreshed like I am ready to take on the world! Scheduling appointments is quick and easy and he is always ok if I call in and change it or if I happen to come in early. Calling Dr. D was one of the BEST decisions."
