Chiropractic & Naturopathic Medicine: Bringing You the Best of Integrative Medicine 

 At Appalachia Chiropractic & Wellness, our team holds a unique holistic care model striving to make each and every patient feel and function at their highest level without drugs or surgery. We offer the community a whole system approach. Patients are never rushed. They are heard and truly cared for. We value the doctor and patient relationship, as we believe it is part of the treatment. 

 Chiropractic and Naturopathic medicine are both forms of natural medicine, as they hold the belief that the body has the ability to heal itself after obstacles to health have been removed and proper care is given. They also both seek to restore and maintain optimum health by emphasizing nature’s inherent self-healing process.  

 Chiropractic and Naturopathic medicine complement each other very well. Chiropractors specialize in musculoskeletal and nervous system conditions, which often means chronic pain. They treat structural misalignments and muscular imbalances whereas naturopathic doctors complement by adding complementary treatment using herbal medicine, diet and nutrition, homeopathy, lifestyle modifications, stress reduction and other areas to help symptom relief and optimize chronic disease management.   

For example, someone who suffers from back pain or arthritis, Dr. Horne can offer spinal manipulation or muscle release whereas Dr. Chan can address inflammation, diet and nutritional therapies. Or for someone who experiences frequent headaches, Dr. Horne can correct a structural misalignment and increase blood flow to the area, whereas Dr. Chan can look for underlying contributors such as chronic stress, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, dehydration and food or environmental sensitivities.  

 Other common conditions treated include: sports injuries, sciatica, disc bulge/herniation, migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, sinus congestion, weight loss, digestive and hormonal conditions.
