How treatment works

Steps To Be Pain Free
Chiropractic Care is a hands-on approach to medicine that focuses on spinal manipulation to improve health. Your spine is at the center of your musculoskeletal system, and if it’s misaligned, you can experience pain or discomfort in a variety of ways. Become pain free and get back to living your life the way it was meant to be!

I have been going to McLaughlin Chiropractic for a couple of months now following chronic back pain from a couple of injuries sustained the last few years. Throw in a lot of driving for work and less than good posture from sitting and I “present” as someone resembling the “tin man” from the Wizard of Oz. Dr. Swacha has done a fantastic job of alleviating my back pain and we are working on restoring a normal range of motion for me.

I have been scared to go to a Chiropractor most of my life. Everyone kept telling me to go, as I have had neck and back issues for years. I have been suffering! It finally was so bad recently with my sciatica and my leg going numb I decided to try it. I have only had 3 sessions and I can tell such a wonderful relief. I felt relief after the 1st visit. I can’t believe I went so many years without trying this. Everyone there is wonderful. I am hoping it will get better and better. Thank you very much!

Been terrified to go to a chiropractor my entire life. Finally gave in after seeing all the reviews for Dr. Swacha. I couldn’t have made a better choice. The staff here is incredible. Kind, personable, and easy to communicate with. Dr. Swacha made sure I understood what was causing my discomfort, as well as the course of action for readjustment. My only regret is not getting it done sooner!
