Welcome to Powell Chiropractic Center! We pride ourselves in handling your medical concerns with extreme care and compassion. Here at PCC we treat patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly. We specialize in non-surgical orthopedics and we use a neurological approach to chiropractic care. We also educate the patient on nutrition, proper exercising and stretching techniques.
Nutritional Supplements and Counseling
At our office, we believe that given the proper nutrition, your body has the amazing capabilities of keeping itself healthy. We also believe that nutrition should be individualized to meet each patients needs. For these reasons and many more, we proudly recommend Standard Process whole food supplements, home grown and produced right here in the USA. Please contact our office today to set up your personal nutritional assessment with the Doctor.
We teach our patients special exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
Physical therapy reduces pain and dysfunction by correcting postural and muscle imbalances, eliminating muscle spasms, trigger points, and fibrous tissue adhesions. These all can be achieved through a specific sequence of exercises, manual therapy, and modalities individualized for each patient and their unique condition.
Dr. Wegener offers a complimentary consultation to all new patients to ensure that they are a proper fit for our practice. The goal of these consultations is to address the health concerns of the patient and to give the most thourough recommendation for care that we can. Call today and ask about setting up a time for your initial consultation.
What to expect on your first visit
On your first visit to Powell Chiropractic you will receive a comprehensive neurological and orthopedic examination. The examination includes joint and muscle/function strength tests, flexibility evaluations, and if necessary, gait analysis and other dynamic testing. X-rays may be taken if needed. The X-rays allow the doctor to develop the most effective plan of care for you as well as, alert him to any serious spinal conditions that you may have. He will then give you an in-depth report of findings, review your X-rays, and let you know exactly what course of action he wishes to take. Allow at least an hour and a half to two hours for the initial visit. Follow-up treatments will only take 20-25 minutes depending on your wait time.
We do except most forms of insurance, as well as automobile accident and workmans compensation cases. On your initial visit we will discuss your financial options, or if you would like to call and give us that information beforehand, feel free to do so. For patients who have little or no insurance coverage, please don’t that stand between you and the health you deserve. Many of our patients pay directly for their care, as they find that chiropractic is very cost- effective and affordable. If you still have questions, please ask to speak to Kathy, she is our financial expert. She will help answer all the questions you might have about cost and insurances.
We do have a number of items that we suggest for home care. These products can be useful to the patient between visits, and are very beneficial to the healing process.
Trigger Wheel– A unique device that is physician designed to give immediate, temporary relief from pain and soreness of muscle related disorders
Foot Wheel – Used to soothe tired, achy feet, associated with plantar fasciitis. The purpose of the foot wheel is to stretch and relax plantar fascia on the bottom of the foot and extinguish myofascial trigger points.
The Stick– The “stick” is widely known as the “toothbrush for muscles”. It aids in removing lactic acid build up in long muscles such as the hamstrings, glutes, traps, deltoids, and many others. By removing the lactic acid build up, it aids in the healing process, by increasing oxygenation, increasing circulation and reducing inflammation.

Chiropractic has helped me to function and sleep better. Before Chiropractic and Dr. Wegener I had almost given up on ever finding relief from my pain.”
“I am 85 years old, and I have been coming to see Dr. Wegener since 1993. Thanks to him and chiropractic I dont feel anywhere close to my age.”
“I have been seeing Dr. Wegener since the late 80’s, and had to move away for a little while in between. When we moved back to town the first thing I had to do was get back in here to see Doctor Don. There is nothing like being able to rely on a good doctor when you are hurting. He truly does keep your body working well and free from pain.”
” I came in to see Dr. Wegener when I had a torn rotator cuff in 3 places. I had suffered with the pain for 3 months by that time. He suggested 10-12 therapy treatments and some adjustments to my shoulder. After 5 treatments I noticed a decrease in pain. After 10 treatments I had regained almost full range of motion in my shoulder. After 12 treatments and adjustments the pain was completely gone. I am so glad that Doctor Wegener suggested this treatment instead of sending me for surgery.”
