Dear Patients, Community and Friends,


We hope that you are all well and being resourceful in your lives!  The universe can test our character but we can come out stronger on the other side if we use this wisely as a reset for our lives.

Pursuant to the governor's executive order to shelter in place we are closing Wellness Chiropractic for the next several weeks.  We will watch the trend of this pandemic and keep you posted on when we will re-open. 


Below you will find the email addresses of the doctors.  You may use these to communicate with us and we may arrange a telemedicine consult or other means of addressing your concerns. If you have a true emergency and our intervention will eliminate the need for a visit to the ER or your PCP,  contact the doctor via email.  Your provider will make a clinical decision if this constitutes an emergency and may make arrangements to evaluate and treat your acute condition.  The doctors' criteria for seeing a patient will necessarily be strict so please do not use this service without due consideration.  Dr. Aker will not be treating patients during this time due to a birth coming to his family in 4 weeks and he wishes to safeguard himself and Dana so that they might welcome this child into the world.  


We will be placing and filling orders for supplements weekly on Fridays.  We will contact you to pay in advance and when your supplements are ready for pick-up.  Please plan for your needs as we may not have what you want in stock and it could be a week before it is ready for pick-up. If you need your supplements shipped there will be a postage fee. The email contact for orders and finances is


We have some recommendations to help you come out of this challenge in better health than you went in. 


1.  Make a gratitude journal and write in it!  If you jot down 2-3 things each day that you are grateful for it resets the brain from the stress mentality that is fostered by the media barrage. If you like an app, a good one is Day One Journal/Diary App.


2.  Exercise!  Follow online or reach out to for help.  Come out of this in better shape than you came in!  Movement is essential to reduce stress and maintain brain clarity.


3.  Practice conscious acts of kindness.  Go out of your way to help others, connect with others through social media or phone.  Support each other.


4.  Clean out your chaos during this time.  This is a chance to declutter your space as well as your head.  Binge watching is clearly the opposite of clearing out the clutter.  


Again, we will be ramping up our virtual efforts in response to your individual needs, so please know that we would love to hear from you with any special requests, ideas or health goals you would like to focus on during this time.  We will listen and respond with the same care as always.  We are here to help and serve any way we can!

At Wellness Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing a range of necessary care expertise to our patients.  We carry a variety of supplements and products to help you maintain aoptimal state of health. Below is a sampling of the services we offer in our clinic.

Chiropractic Care for All Ages--​Maintenance, Injury, Corrective, Maternity and Pediatric

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing a variety of chiropractic techniques, but primarily adjustments with the Thompson Drop Table: a gentle technique that can be used at almost any age. New methods of correction are even safer, more comfortable, and more effective than ever before.  Wellness Chiropractic is well known for our effectual and modern spinal care for every body at every stage of life, including maintenance, maternity, and pediatric care, as well as treatment of acute injuries and spinal conditions. 


Wellness with Rehabilitation:  ​Personal Evaluation, Corrective Exercises, Postural Restoration, Low Level Laser Therapy, Rapid Release Technique

Rehabilitative exercise is a key component at Wellness Chiropractic to enhance the care your Doctor provides. Many of the conditions which may have brought you to our office are developed over time and require more than just a spinal care protocol.  An evaluation and movement pattern assessment will help us understand your specific strengths and weaknesses, allowing your care to be as effective as possible. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home, and can improve your spinal correction by as much as 30-40%. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. As part of our wellness care program you will learn how to integrate simple movements into your everyday life to help counteract the stresses that are placed upon your body.   Let us assist your body staying in balance and in health, so you can enjoy life at its fullest!

At Wellness Chiropractic, we also provide the following Physiotherapy procedures in addition to our chiropractic services: 


Postural Restoration is a highly successful treatment approach for problems that may arise from imbalances and asymmetries in the body. A certified therapist can determine what type of adaptations you have made to cope with your symptoms that are likely the underlying source of your bodily pain, instability, weakness and dysfunction. Postural Restoration is instrumental in developing innovative treatment programs that succeed where injections and surgery has failed.

Low Level Laser Therapy or Photobiomodulation, a treatment that utilizes specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue and help accelerate the healing process. It can be used on patients who suffer from a variety of acute and chronic conditions in order to help eliminate pain, swelling, reduce spasms and increase functionality.

Soft tissue work is an important process to loosen up fascia and scar tissue. We use a variety of methods to support this healing process. Instrumented assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) and our Rapid Release Technique will provide you with specific tissue release in a relatively short amount of time.​

Comprehensive Lower Extremity Evaluation:  ​Gaitscan and Custom Orthotics--​Putting Your Body in Balance with Orthotics

Your feet are the foundation of your body. They support you when you stand, walk, or run, and they help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from damaging stress as you move through your day. Your feet perform better when all their muscles, arches, and bones are in their ideal stable positions.   ​Prescription Orthotics are worn in your shoes to provide correction for your feet and help them function more efficiently. Poor foot function and alignment may be the cause of a number of different problems you may experience including: foot pain, hip pain, knee pain or back pain. Prescription orthotics help to relieve your pain by realigning and stabilizing the bones in your feet which then restore a natural walking gait so your body moves more efficiently. 


Some signs that you may be suffering from abnormal foot function are:

  • Your feet are sore on a regular basis

  • Standing, walking, or running gives you joint pain in your ankles, knees, hips or back.

  • You have visible foot problems such as bunions, fallen arches, or corns

  • You have knock-knees, bow legs or you “toe out” when you walk

  • Your shoes wear out quickly or unevenly.

Other reasons to consider wearing custom orthotics are:

  • You spend a good portion of the day standing or walking on hard surface

  • You are over 40 years old.

  • You have a history of plantar fascitis or shin splints

  • Your parents had foot related symptoms.

  • You play a sport regularly such as tennis, basketball, golf or running 

  • One of your legs is shorter than the other.


Our office utilizes a state of the art computer program which helps us assess and analyze your feet. This report helps us evaluate your foot function and determine if the pain you are experiencing is related to faulty foot function. If we find you would benefit from orthotic therapy, we can then design custom made orthotics which are manufactured specifically for you and your feet.  If you’d like more information on custom orthotics, please call for a free consultation.
