WELCOME TO Acton Family Chiropractic

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.

Most patients don't realize how much education chiropractors in Asheville have. Chiropractors are held to some of the most intense educational standards of any health field. In fact their education standards are very comparable to that of a medical doctor. After completing a strong emphasis of basic sciences in college, chiropractors attend a four year chiropractic college. This means that chiropractors are primary care physicians.

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.
