Chiropractor Raleigh NC
Welcome to Ashforth Chiropractic Family Wellness Center website!
We are located in North Raleigh 2 miles South of 540 on Six Forks Rd. just North of Lynn Rd. in the Pembroke Square Plaza. We are in the first building facing Six Forks Rd. across from the white Merz North America and Point Source buildings.
We decided to open a chiropractic office in Raleigh in 1999 without knowing a single person in the city. We fell in love with the small town feel of Raleigh while still having the amenities of larger cites. In addition, Raleigh was close to the beaches as well as the mountains. Raleigh also had great schools, and lots college sports which I love.
Welcome to Ashforth Chiropractic Family Wellness Center
What sets me apart as a chiropractor in Raleigh I think is that we really listen to our patients and try to partner with them to get the best possible outcomes. I work with the simple premise that I treat each patient as if they were a family member- doing only what I would have done to myself or my family no more and no less. In addition, I stay up on the latest trends with technology and we utilize the most up to date chiropractic instruments to deliver the most advanced care possible.
Another benefit of our Raleigh office is I have over 22 years of experience. Simply put whether it is neck pain, headaches, sciatica, disc herniation, back pain, knee, foot, hip, elbow, wrist…etc. I have probably seen it before and will know if I can help you or not.
I find the biggest misconception people have about coming to our Raleigh office is that it is going to hurt to get chiropractic treatment. People are really surprised after I work on them that first time that it doesn’t hurt and that if actually feels nice. We often use chiropractic instruments that are 100 times faster than a human can move so this increased speed allows us to use significantly less force to get things done.
I know Raleigh has a lot of choices for your chiropractic care. I hope that you will take the time to read our reviews look over our website and then if you feel comfortable, give our office a call.
The History of Chiropractic Care
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 Kind of Training Does a Chiropractor Have?
Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.
Students of chiropractic care must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.
