Too many people think doctors of chiropractic services are witchcraft, quackery, false or misleading. They aren't.

To earn the doctor of chiropractic degree, candidates must complete extensive undergraduate prerequisites and several years of graduate-level instruction and internship at an accredited chiropractic institution.

Comprehensive knowledge of all systems of the body and diagnostic procedures enable the chiropractor to thoroughly evaluate a patient, address disorders relating to the spine and determine the need for referral to another health care provider.

After I rolled a large garden tractor, my back was twisted in ways it wasn't designed to twist. After two weeks of pain, at the suggestion of my son, I went to a chiropractor. It was the best move I could have made. Two of the best chiropractors are Dr. Courtney Carpenter and Dr. Mindy Farrell of Healthsource Chiropractic. Thank you!
