We Can Help

Pain Relief

We specialize in patients with chronic and acute pain. Many of our patients have tried countless doctors, shots, surgeries, and drugs. New patients often walk through our doors desperate for relief from stiff necks, pinched nerves, sciatica, low back pain, migraines, headaches or countless other ailments. Our simple method of gently removing the pressure from your brainstem helps to correct your pinched nerves and address your symptom. Instead of masking symptoms, our doctors look to correct the root cause. Are you looking for relief? Are you ready to feel healthier?

Better Posture

Posture is an indicator into whether your nervous system is functioning 100%. Patients in alignment stand up straighter, hold their heads higher, walk better and stand taller. Unfortunately, life sitting at a desk, behind a steering wheel, our crouched over a phone do not promote our bodies natural posture. A specific adjustment to your spine can reset your posture and counteract the negative effects of poor posture. Alignment of the top vertebrae in your spine corrects your postural tone. Are you ready for healthier posture?

Healthy Growth

Build a healthy life from the start. Parents and Grandparents often ask, "do kids need chiropractic too?" when they see little ones in our office. The answer is YES if they are misaligned! We take care of patients of all ages and entire families. It is much easier to promote wellness within the body by correcting spinal alignment at a young age. If your spine is misaligned, your body is not functioning 100%. Doesn't it make sense to have your children checked before they experience symptoms such as pain and chronic illness? Symptoms in children typically show up differently than adults. Crankiness, colic, frequent sickness, constipation, earaches, asthma, bedwetting, and low energy, just to name a few. Our positive team and helpful staff provide a fun and safe environment for children to grow healthy and strong.

With the combination of removing my food allergies from my diet and getting my spine corrected with NUCCA Chiropractic I feel so much better now!  I walked down the aisle at my wedding with NO PAIN!!! – Kyle


My energy level has increased, along with my feelings of optimism. I have entered a whole different way of looking at the world and my health has improved in all areas. My first grandchild was born this year!  And I have my life back!!! – Barbara


Within weeks I could walk normally, and I avoided surgery and had minimal discomfort. I committed this year to coming weekly so that I could maintain my alignment. I have a special back and having a Doctor that I trust and who cares about me is critical to my health and wellness. I know Dr. Meakim cares about me and had my best interests in mind – Betsy


Within months of being treated by Dr. Meakim, I was able to start playing tennis and golf. Last month I went to Palm Springs and played 9 rounds of golf in 7 days and I was PAIN FREE the entire time. Choosing to do N.U.C.C.A was one of the greatest gifts I have ever given myself. – Anna


The sciatica left quickly and my blood pressure improved so much that I went off medication for it! Now I just make sure to make my checkups so that my symptoms NEVER come back!  Thanks Doc!! – Jill


 I could not carry my son, sleep at night, or even shop!  I am a mother of 3 and a R.N. I needed serious help! I can now do all of the things that I was unable to do before and have since brought my whole family in to see the doctors at Healthy Life Chiropractic!  We are all healthier and happier and I feel better knowing that I am doing the best for my kids, husband, and myself – Tina


My mom has come a long way. It is great to see her dancing in the office to show Dr. Meakim how much better she is feeling. We can even go on hikes as a family now! –Sawdy Phoun  for her mom Sara


Little did I realize, though, experiencing headaches on a daily basis, and a searing pain whenever I rotated my neck did not have to be normal. Now, I feel much better physically, and even emotionally knowing that I am worthy of living a life absent of chronic pain. It is without a doubt that Dr. Meakim and all of her staff have helped me not only address issues that were the cause of my limited mobility, but also give me the courage to advocate for myself. – Christoph


The day I came to Healthy Life Chiropractic, I had been struggling with chronic pain for 8 years. This was also the day that completely started the change in my life that I had been searching for. My first visit at NUCCA I left crying. I felt like I was walking on clouds. I felt a sense of happiness, relief and excitement all at once. I hadn’t felt that great in over 8 years! This was my answer. – Ally


I like coming to NUCCA because I can think better when I am doing homework. – Jamie (13 y/o)


I was unaware of  Nucca. But now I know and understand how fabulous it is.  It really works and it is easy and painless! Dr. Meakim has changed my life, I started with horrible back and neck pain, today I do not have any pain and I have greater mobility.  – Lori


I began coming to Healthy Life Chiropractic because I had been suffering from Constant Migraine Syndrome for about three years. Before receiving care here, I was not able to go outside in bright lights, listen to music, exercise or read! I have been a patient for about four years! -Mariah
