A Doctor of Chiropractic is a physician that uses their hands and a drug-free approach to care for their patients. Chiropractors are trained in caring for a variety of patients, for those interested in pregnancy, pediatric, family and sports care. When visiting a chiropractor for the first time your care will receive an exam, diagnosis, and treatment. Chiropractors are educated in performing manipulation/adjustment, therapeutic exercises, and provide nutritional counseling.

Chiropractors are required to attend a nationally accredited 4 year doctoral program that includes 4200 hours clinical rotations and laboratory work. Chiropractors in the state of Florida are required to obtain a bachelor’s degree before attending graduate school, they are also required to take 4 board exams and a state exam. Once successfully completing the required national and state exams chiropractors are considered primary care physicians in the state of Florida.

At Spaulding Family Chiropractic and Wellness, our doctors are trained in caring for pregnancy patients, pediatric patients, sports care and educating the public in how to better care for their own bodies. We accomplish this by having multiple services available such as: personal training, nutritional counseling, soft tissue manipulation, and monthly events where we discuss the latest information on health and wellness.
