As a family chiropractic office, we understand that although our patients may be diagnosed with very simliar conditions, they may respond very differently to treatments. For this reason, we tailor a specific plan of action to meet your needs, goals & unique physical conditions. We are very active people ourselves, and are trained in many sports injury rehabilitation, correction, prevention protocols, as well as diet and nutrition to help the body to function at optimal level.

We are proud to have had the opportunity to help clients ranging from newborns to centurians achieve levels of health their families never thought possible.

Our products and services are generally described as integrative, alternative and holistic healthcare yet by any name our intent is our patients' well being and we combine both traditional medicine with alternative medicine to provide our patients with the treatment that best suits their needs.

River Valley Chiropractic has adopted the science and philosophy of functional medicine that includes the ongoing maintenance and improvement of the body's homeostasis through nutrition, exercise, structural correction and when necessary conventional and alternative treatments needed to boost the immune system and combat disease.

We are dedicated to helping you achieve your wellness objectives -- combining skill and expertise that spans the entire chiropractic wellness spectrum. You can be assured of receiving only the finest quality care through the use of modern chiropractic equipment and technology. We offer GRASTON TECHNIQUE, decompression traction, cupping, soft tissue modalities, acupuncture and many more modalities to help you achieve maximum results.

Dr. Kent and Shelley as well as the staff have a genuine concern for your well-being! If you are new to our website, please feel free to discover and learn about chiropractic wellness.
