Western Branch Family Chiropractic Center
“Forget about a chiropractor already … you need a real doctor.” Jon Schaier knows his patients are often told this by concerned friends and family. In fact, he himself was told this by his family when he herniated a disc in his lower back and felt pain so excruciating that everyone advised him to go in for surgery immediately. But he followed his instincts and saw a chiropractor, who managed to completely erase his pain without performing surgery, prescribing drugs, or forcing him to be carried everywhere on a litter.
That’s why Schaier believes in the healing powers of chiropractic so strongly. In 1992, the doors opened to Western Branch Family Chiropractic Center, a place where he could prove to his patients that chiropractic can effectively relieve pain. There, Schaier and his team educate patients about inflammation—the main culprit for back and arthritis pain—its causes, and its damaging effects on the body. Treatments such as cold-laser therapy and massage sessions target the spinal column, back, and neck and pair with diet and nutrition counseling to prevent future debilitating pain, whether a result of aging, sports injuries, or furious games of slapjack.
