Dr. Carol Wright-Smith and Dr. Dale Smith spread their chiropractic wizardry—developed in the Palmer College of Chiropractic—across two offices located in Cordova and Oakland. When they're not treating vertebral subluxations with adjustments, on-site x-rays, or cervical-traction sessions, the two enjoy wearing hats made of counterfeit cheese and rooting for the Green Bay Packers. Each Smith Chiropractic Clinic location also houses licensed massage therapists, who are extensively trained to pamper guests with full-body, chair, hot-stone, and prenatal massages.
For Dr. Michael Bibb, pain is like a grease fire where prevention is the best strategy for dealing with it. He takes a proactive approach to health, nipping pain and illness in the bud with chiropractic adjustments and nutrition information designed to keep the body functioning properly. When pain does occur, he treats symptoms by triggering the body’s self-healing mechanism to correct such conditions as headaches, dizziness, ADD, and digestive issues.

If your associate deems it necessary for proper pain-diagnosis, you might also be asked to pose for a set of x-rays, so clean out old gum-wrappers before you arrive.
