Our Story

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 and help other people who were suffering and were looking for an answer that didn't include taking drugs or having surgery.

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, and 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.

After his practice took off quickly, he needed 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 is right off I-240. The office is a free-standing building with a Read-A-Board sign, just .2 of a mile past the entrance to Sam's Club as you head West on Patton Ave. Our friendly office dogs will greet you when you arrive.
