Chiropractic Care

We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Cande Brugger has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

Class IV Laser Therapy

This therapy provides quick relief from pain, swelling and muscle spasms while stimulating and accelerating the healing process. It is completely painless and effective on just about any musculoskeletal condition. This treatment has been cleared by the FDA.

Massage Therapy (MM24527)

Meet our Massage Therapist, Amanda Lanham McCurry, LMT (MM59935). Massage therapy can be more than just for relaxation. Massage therapy can be a great tool to use in conjunction with other types of treatments to make them even more effective. Massages are available by appointment only.

Corrective Exercises

We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of 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. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.


To complement and enhance the healing effects of Dr. Brugger's specific Chiropractic manipulative treatment, we at Dr. Chris Brugger Chiropractic Physician also provide the following physiological therapeutic procedures:

  • Class IV Laser Therapy
  • Interferential electrical muscle stimulation
  • Neuromuscular Massage Therapy
  • Spinal Decompresion
  • Hydrotherapy Massage
  • Robotic Chair Massage
  • Infrasound
  • Computerized Posture-Pump Spine Trainer

Corrective 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 around. Your feet perform better when all their muscles, arches, and bones are in their ideal stable positions.

The foot is constructed with three arches which, when properly maintained, give exceptional supportive strength. These three arches form a supporting vault that distributes the weight of the entire body.

If there is compromise of one arch in the foot, the other arches must compensate and are subject to additional stresses, which usually leads to further compromise.

It's a chain reaction.

Healthcare professionals know alleviating pain in one part of your body often requires treating a different part. The pain you feel in your neck could be caused by a misalignment in your spine that is caused by unbalanced positioning in your feet. See? It's a chain reaction.

By stabilizing and balancing your feet, Foot Levelers orthotics enhance your body's performance and efficiency, reduce pain, and contribute to your total body wellness. Our orthotics complement your healthcare professional's treatment when you stand, walk, and live your active life.

Utilizing a state-of-the-art foot scanner, we can order precise orthotics and footwear custom-made to provide your feet with the proper amount of support.

Lifestyle Advice

We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each of our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
