Welcome to Coastal Chiropractic & Acupuncture
For over 100 years, chiropractors have believed in a natural drug-free approach to healing. By removing spinal fixations and mechanical dysfunctions proper nerve flow and energy are restored, allowing the body to heal on its own.
Dr. Walters prefers hands-on manipulations but is well trained in table assisted and instrument adjusting. Dr. Walters also performs spinal disc decompression, myofascial release, acupuncture, and electric muscle stimulation, and in some cases, a combination of these treatments.
HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELP YOU?
Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

THE HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE
The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
What Kind of Training Does a Chiropractor Have?
Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.
Students of chiropractic care must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.
