Welcome to Back to Health Chiropractic...




Our goal at Back to Health Chiropractic is to help you to be proactive with your health so you and your family can experience life to it's fullest without the stresses of ill health.

Symptoms often don't appear until the advanced stages of an underlying problem that has been left untreated for too long (example: the first symptom of a heart attack IS a heart attack - even though it took YEARS of plaque buildup to lead to it.) Like a beeping smoke alarm in a house fire, the fire should be the focus and not just the annoying alarm. It doesn't make sense to remove the batteries so you don't hear the beeping - you MUST put out the fire! Pain medications, muscle relaxers and cortisone injections only mask the problem which allows the issue to only get worse overt time. You must focus on the underlying problem which many times is a structural issue in the spine causing nerve irritation.

After a conversation and evaluation with the doctor of your current health condition, our goal is to explain in very simple terms exactly what's wrong, if we can help, how long it will take and how much it will cost. Once we have corrected the underlying structural primary condition causing your symptoms, we'll show you how to protect the progress you've made so that you not only feel great for years to come. Proactive and preventative healthcare is by far the best way to go!

We're very excited to become part of your healthcare team to help you live with the highest quality of life you can!

It's a Conversation, Not a Commitment!

    Introducing LaPorte Chiropractor Dr. Matthew Kirkham

    Coming from a family of 'chiropractic skeptics', most of my family and friends would not have guessed that I would have chosen to become a chiropractor. Originally, I had set my sights on becoming a medical doctor or an architect. As I discovered more about health and how the body works, chiropractic made a whole lot more sense to me than medicine did, so I decided to become a chiropractic physician.

    It was during my early teenage years that I suffered from frequent back pain as a result of playing a lot of volleyball. The jumping and twisting often caused intense pain in my lower back that shot down my leg on occasion. During this period of my life, I also suffered from intense migraine headaches that occurred every few months and only relieved after laying down and going to sleep. And since I couldn't sleep during school, when the migraines hit during the day, I just had to suffer. Read More...
