New doctor comes to DadevillePublished 3:08pm Thursday, February 28, 2013
Dadeville now has a chiropractor.
Dr. Doug Roberts, owner of Alex City Chiropractic, has expanded to offer services one day per week at the Wellness Center at Lake Martin Community Health Center.
“We’re very excited to have him,” said Stacey Deloach, manager of the Wellness Center. “Some of his biggest clientele are our employees– they’re some of his biggest fans.”
Roberts said he began offering services from 2-5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays in November and has seen a variety of patients since.
“It’s great to be here and available to people in Dadeville and people on this side of the River Bridge and Lake Martin,” Roberts said “It’s been very rewarding, and we’re glad to be able to help them out.”
Roberts, who has operated Alexander City Chiropractic since 2005, said expanding his practice has benefited his patients.
“We wanted to reach those that might have struggled before to get all the way to a chiropractor,” Roberts said. “We have a lot of patients in Jackson’s Gap, Camp Hill and Dadeville areas that were having to travel all the way to Montgomery, Tallassee or Wetumpka to see a chiropractor so we felt that moving (to the Wellness Center) would be beneficial for them.”
Roberts said his office in Dadeville offers the same services as his practice at Alex City Chiropractic, including full X-ray services, which allows him to help a variety of conditions.
“Chiropractic care can help with anything from migraines to asthma to indigestion,” Roberts said. “Do chiropractors think we can cure everything? Absolutely not. We don’t treat everything.”
Roberts said chiropractors primarily address spine and central nervous system problems, which allow the body to heal.
“We corrent misalignment that allows the central nervous system to function like it’s designed to and allows the body to correct things,” Roberts said. “A lot of conditions correct themselves when you correct the misalignment – that’s what we do.”
Roberts said the reasons for seeking chiropractic care vary from person to person.
“If you ask any of your friends why they go to a chiropractor, you’ll get as many answers as you have friends,” Roberts said.
