Chiropractor Asheville NC

 

Acton Family Chiropractic was established in 1979 by Dr. Donald Acton. He had witnessed the miracles of Chiropractic from a very early age after seeing his Mother and Grandmother recover from serious spinal problems. His Mother took his entire family to be checked for nerve stress when he was 7 and by age 12 he knew he wanted to become a Chiropractor in Asheville and help other people who were suffering and were looking for an answer that didn't include taking drugs or having surgery.

After his practice took off quickly, he need more space and decided to move to a location that was easily accessible for the entire county. In 1982 he purchased, remodeled and expanded an existing building at 789 Patton Ave. The location is the second busiest street in the state of North Carolina and right off I-240, just 2 miles West of the center of town. The office is a free-standing building just .2 of a mile past Denny's restaurant as you head West.

Dr. Acton grew up in a very small town in North Central Indiana surrounded by corn fields and people who loved basketball. Life was good, people were kind but he knew he had the ability to help people (who had a spine and were still breathing) anywhere on the planet. But after traveling extensively he knew he wanted to live in the mountains in the Southeast. Asheville NC already had a road name "Acton Circle" and he felt it was predetermined to go there.

Common Symptoms We Help

Working with Acton Family Chiropractic
will make a difference in your health.

The thing that make our office unique is our passion to serve God by serving others and the fact that Dr. Acton has been a student of health and wellness his entire life having seen the health problems his family faced and how Chiropractic was able to help when other methods failed. We also try to be hyper-convenient and show people what they need but cheerfully give them what they want. We never push people into treatment they don't feel they need.

Most people come into our office after seeing at least 2 - 3 other doctors for the same problem without getting results. About 10-15% of the people we see daily have had previous spinal surgery. Low back problems are the #1 thing that brings most people in for the first time followed by different types of headache problems. We also specialize in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy.

Many people think that Chiropractic is only good for a 'crick in the back' or they think it's dangerous or once you go you have to keep going forever. I feel like our job is to find out what's causing your problem and then show you what I would do if it was me or my family however you are always welcome to take things at whatever pace you want to go without pressure.

So, if you haven't gotten the results you are desiring by doing whatever it is your doing now and what a second opinion, I would love to give you my opinion based on my lifetime study of health and the human body and my 37 years of practice seeing over 500,000 patient visits.

Chiropractic Explained

If you are looking for an explanation of how chiropractic care works this paragraph is for you. A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect muscle and bone structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.

That's a lot to take in, but it is the explanation as to why some chiropractic patients in Asheville report improvement in body function. This is not a claim that chiropractic adjustments treat disease, but it does suggest that some people will see improvements in conditions that are outside of the treatment area.

What Our Patients Say

"Ever since I’ve been coming to get adjusted I’ve seen a real, real, real big improvement. I hardly have any pain or stiffness at all now! I would recommend him to anybody!"
George

"I had a very bad migraine headache that day, and he explained to me what he was doing for my mom and he wanted to check me out. I listened to the explanation; he knew exactly where the pain was at in my back and has now cured my migraines by 90% and I think that is excellent!"
Rita

"Doctor Acton has done wonders on my legs, my hips, my back, everywhere! He has just done a fantastic job and I’d like to praise him for it!"
