We’re across Northway Dr. from Penland Park, just north of the U.S. Post Office. We share the building with Procare Home Medical and a Subway.

Within our welcoming doors, you’ll meet a super-friendly and local Anchorage chiropractor, warm staff, and all the helpful lifestyle, nutrition, and general fitness advice you can handle (especially in the colder months when our spine and joints can get a bit stiff).

It’s because of the people around East Anchorage that we’ve been able to open up new clinics and help Alaskans deal with neck pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, and more on a bigger scale. Our community has made it possible for us to be the first to combine chiropractic care with physical rehab and create the Alaska Back Pain Protocol with the help of over 6,000 patients like you.

So look no further for a friendly chiropractor in Anchorage or a local massage therapist. We got you! Below you can learn more about our resident chiropractors, the services we offer, conditions we treat, and more. Hope to see you soon, and remember to bring your smile!

Dr. Aaron DeChant

Dr. Nicholas McCarty East Anchorage Chiropractor

Early in life, Dr. Aaron M. DeChant D.C. began observing how chiropractic benefited the lives of other people in his immediate family and beyond. As a result, he started working in his uncle’s chiropractic office. From this, he chose to pursue a career in the field of chiropractic. He earned his B.S. and doctorate of chiropractic from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri. Dr. DeChant appreciates utilizing a conservative approach to chiropractic care and employs a wide vision perspective for each of his clients.
