Doctor of Chiropractic Daniel Nugent has given more than just his name to the practice formerly known as Newman Chiropractic Center. After nearly a decade in private practice, the chiropractic doctor has arrived at the holistic philosophy that now governs all of the center’s healthcare treatments. Rather than opt for surgical remedies, Dr. Nugent prefers non-invasive techniques that identify the root cause of bodily pain and treat the body as a complex, integrated organism.
Versed in specialized CBP training, Dr. Nugent returns vertebrates to their preordained pecking order and eases the effects of sports injuries with advanced spine-correcting techniques. After a personal consultation and physical examination, he devises a treatment plan that may pair traditional spinal adjustments with exercise and nutritional advice. In addition to his normal hours, Dr. Nugent offers evening appointments to accommodate nine-to-fivers just waking from daylong naps in cramped cubicle drawers.
