Our Story
Michiana's Trusted Chiropractic Care

The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the humane frame, diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.
- Thomas Edison

The foresight of Thomas Edison was spot on in summing up the philosophy of many chiropractors.

We believe that this is exactly what we are called to do… To provide chiropractic care through adjustments and exercise instruction (care of the human frame).

To give direction on ways to eat healthy and/or weight loss (diet).

To education on reduction of stress and lifestyle changes (cause and prevention of disease).

At Proactive Health your care is not just making the pain disappear, it’s much more! It is about learning, understanding, and taking care of your body and mind to improve your quality of life. We understand you’re hurting and our approach is simple…We align the whole you, not just treat your symptoms.

Our holistic protocols are individualized to each case and condition. This means we give your body what it needs to heal its own tissue, remove the interference and accumulated waste allowing your body to return to its normal balance.
