Michael Vactor hurt his back 30 years ago when he slipped on ice and fell. With herniated discs in his lower back, he feared back surgery was in his future. Instead, he visited a chiropractor at the urging of a friend. It turned out to be one of the best decisions he had ever made.

Not only did it resolve his back issues without surgery, it set him on the path toward his future career.

A chiropractor for the last 24 years, Vactor has made it his life’s mission to share the benefits of chiropractic care as part of an overall health and wellness routine.

Chiropractic care is an alternative medicine practice that focuses on diagnosing and treating neuromuscular disorders, primarily through manual adjustments and manipulations of the spine. Chiropractors believe the body’s nervous system is responsible for maintaining health and that problems in the spine can interfere with the flow of nerve impulses, causing pain and other health conditions.
