Learn Who We Are

  • Dr. Lance McAfee
    Owner

    Dr. Lance McAfee is a chiropractor and wellness expert dedicated to providing the highest standard of safe and gentle chiropractic care. He believes that wellness is a combination of health and happiness, and empowers his patients to take control of their own health and wellness without drugs or surgery. 

    His advanced approach goes far beyond pain management to address the underlying cause of health for each individual and maximize the body's natural ability to heal itself.

    His practice has a strong focus on safe chiropractic during pregnancy, gentle chiropractic for children, and family wellness care, along with nerve system and musculoskeletal issues such as back, neck pain, headaches, and sciatica. 

    Dr. McAfee is currently taking advanced training by the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association (ICPA) to specialize in safe and gentle chiropractic care for pregnant women and children.  This will include becoming certified in the Webster Technique to gentle reduce pregnancy pains and balance the pelvis for childbirth, all while honouring the maternal body.  Chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy are well known to help with back pain, sciatica, and headaches but modern chiropractic and pregnancy research is showing benefit for breech presentation, hormone balancing, and digestive issues as well.

    Dr. McAfee enjoys taking care of children and providing chiropractic for infants and kids of all ages. Chiropractic for children has been shown to help with conditions such as ear infections, ADHD, autism, growing pains, colic, acid reflux, asthma, allergies, and scoliosis.  Dr. McAfee also provides chiropractic wellness checkups to help ensure kids grow up healthy, happy and drug-free. 

    Dr. McAfee is a golf fanatic which lead him to extra training through the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). TPI training allows Dr. McAfee to identify and correct the improper golf swing mechanics and musculoskeletal dysfunctions that lead to injury and worse, the 'double bogey blues.'

    Our shoulder joints have the greatest range of motion of any of the musculoskeletal joints in our bodies. The shoulder joint is really two joints, the glenohumeral joint between the arm bone (humerus) and the shoulder blade (scapula) and the acromioclavicular joint between the acromion (a bony projection off the scapula) and the collarbone (clavicle). The glenohumeral joint is a ball-and-socket joint and the acromioclavicular joint is a gliding joint. ...

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I've been a supporter of chiropractic for over 30 years. When I have an issue I go and get it taken care of. When I go in without issues and get adjusted it keeps everything moving as it should. I would encourage them to not even think twice about it, just go! It has kept me moving and pain free."
    Donna
  • "I had issues with my neck and could not turn my head to the left. Try it, listen to your body and it will let you know how it will be working for you. I now have full motion in my neck, and as a bonus it stopped my panic attacks."
    Mary
  • "I had pain in my ribs from being pregnant. Make the appointment, at least for a consultation. It never hurts anyone to talk about it. At the end of the day, I can go to bed with no back pain."
