Lower back and neck pain

The spine is the most important part of the body when it comes to keeping your body limber and mobile.

Dr. Cara and the whole team are incredibly caring, knowledgeable and helpful for healing and wholeness. I've had a fantastic experience. I started going when I was pregnant and had immediate relief from lower back pain and neck issues.

Parking is easy, it's very safe with covid protection measures and they're timely with getting you in at your appointment time.

Thank you Corrective Chiropractic Decatur!

We love Corrective Chiropractic! I originally started going to get me through a back injury, they successfully got me moving again after months of pain, and it is now and nonnegotiable in my life to get my adjustment. As a busy mom who loves to work out hard in the gym, it’s important for me to feel good so I can keep up with my kids. I also bring two of my kids as patients, and the correct of team has walked them from being very nervous to come in for an adjustment, to asking if it’s their day when we come. I am super thankful to the entire team for helping our family stay healthy and moving. I have seen a lot of positive changes in my kids, not only physically, but also emotionally since starting their adjustments. So thankful to have found Corrective Chiropractic, highly recommend!
