Chiropractic helps Tony Schumacher get back in the drivers seat after a 320 mph crash.

Tony Schumacher, professional NHRA racecar driver describes his experience with chiropractic. “It was amazing. It’s one of those things were I sat up and everything was gone, no pain, color was back in my face and I thought to myself: It’s like magic!”

Tony was involved in a horrific crash at over 300mph on October 7, 2000 in Memphis Tennessee. His left leg was broken in 7 places, 6 fingers were dislocated, and he had a very serious concussion. Surgery to his leg was performed by top orthopedic trauma surgeons at the Ortho IndyCenter, a facility that specializes in the treatment of racecar drivers injuries.
After the surgery, Tony was left in a constant state of pain. He was plagued by debilitating headaches and dizziness. His medical doctors could not identify the cause of his pain. He was incapacitated. Until a friend suggested he see a chiropractor.
Dr. Marshall Dickholtz performed upper cervical specific chiropractic adjustments to Tony and after several adjustments; Tony began to feel like himself again and was on his road to recovery.

Research Shows: Chronic Migraine Helped By Chiropractic Care

A study published in the February 2000 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, (JMPT), showed that people suffering with migraine headaches were helped with chiropractic care. The study was conducted in Australia at the Chiropractic Research Center of Macquarie University. In this research 177 volunteers were studied who had migraine headaches for over 18 years on average. Many of the participants also suffered from neck pain.

The average response of the group that received chiropractic care showed a statistically significant improvement in migraine frequency, duration, and disability. The study also showed that those who received chiropractic care were able to reduce their medication use, with a significant number reducing their medication usage to zero! Additionally, 59% had no neck pain after a period of two months, and another 35% had a decrease in neck pain.

The researchers concluded this study, built on previous studies that had similar results. “There have now been several studies demonstrating significant improvement in headaches or migraines after chiropractic.” The Migraine Foundation of Australia estimates that some 12% of Australians ages 15 and over, experience migraines.

The nervous system controls and coordinates every function in the body. Subluxations, misalignments in the spine, cause interference to the nervous system and decrease the proper function of the body. Only chiropractors are trained to correct subluxations, allowing the body to restore proper function and healing.

Please watch this video from NBC NEWS about how chiropractic care can help you to achieve your health and wellness.

Health, healing and wellness comes from Inside. The best doctor is inside of you.

Just a little something about the clinic ...

Insurance Explained

Insurance Explained
Traditional Insurance:

This is either a HMO, PPO or Indemnity Plan where the patient pays a co-pay, a percent of the office charge, a deductible, or a combination thereof. These must be paid at the time services are rendered in order for the insurance plan to pick up the difference. (This is a contract between the you the patient and the insurance company. The insurance company agrees to "X" dollars, provided you, the patient pay your obligation.)

It should be noted that in March 1, 2006, North Carolina mandated that Chiropractic care have the same co-pay as a Primary Care Physician and Chiropractors would not be considered as a specialist co-pay. Please check with your plan to see if you are affected.

Unfortunately, The House repealed this Co-pay law that made Chiropractic care more affordable for patients seeking to have lower health care costs.

February 07, 2009

The N.C. House of Representatives introduced a bill last week that will reenact the co-pay equity provision of 2005. House Bill 14 will again make chiropractic co-pays affordable by making them equal to the co-pays of primary care physicians.


The Current Status of House Bill 14


Automobile Insurance:

Liability Insurance is the insurance available to pay for injuries sustained in an automobile accident which was not your fault. (This is the insurance that is on the other vehicle that hit you.)

Med Pay Insurance is the insurance on your vehicle which will pay for injuries, up to a certain amount, when you are involved in an accident. Making a claim on this does not cause your insurance rates to increase. Some policies have this, others do not, please check to see if your policy has Med Pay coverage. (This is the insurance on your vehicle.)

Worker's Compensation:

Worker's Compensation is accepted by the Clinic. This typically requires a referral if a Chiropractor is not the initial treating physician. Chiropractic care is covered under North Carolina Worker's Compensation Claims and to suggest otherwise is false. Please call the clinic for details at (704) 541-7111.


We are a provider for Medicare but we do not accept assignment. The patient is responsible for the charges and pays at the time of service. The only item that Medicare will reimburse for in Chiropractic offices is manipulation and any other service, therapy or devices are the patient's responsibility. The patient is reimbursed by Medicare.

Remember, there is never a reason to walk alone. We are here to help.
