Functional Medicine in a Nut Shell

By using a combination of history, physical exam findings, and lab work the clinician can identify fundamental factors that are driving the symptoms that your body is expressing. By removing these drivers, modulating specific biochemical pathways, and supporting deficiencies, symptoms will dissipate, and the body can function at its optimal potential.  The body is designed to heal itself, if we support the processes that allow it to do so.

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "Without the headaches and back aches dragging me down, I've been able to get more accomplished and to feel better at the end of the day than I have in literally years. That is miracle number three. I have found a precious jewel in Nichols Chiropractic. I tell all my friends about them, and I intend to be a loyal patient for a very long time. I thank the Lord for sending me in this direction."

  • "I went through three months of adjustments and traction that began in January of 2006. I am now pain free 95% of the time, and have Chiropractic treatments nearly once a month to ensure I stay that way. My admiration, gratitude and thankfulness to Dr. Nichols and his staff will be never ending."
