AboutPlainfield Chiropractic Clinic

At Plainfield Chiropractic Clinic, we strive to use chiropractic treatment that addresses physical pain from the foundation of the body to the head. From time to time, people will attempt to treat their back pain with store-bought painkillers and rest. While this can help to provide temporary relief from symptoms, it is not a true solution. Dr. Chris Smith, DC and our team can help by finding a solution for the source of the pain.

From the moment patients walk in the door to any follow-up appointments, we will help guide the patient through the treatment process. Since the patient may need several appointments over a few weeks or months, we will help the patient stay on track for recovery.
