Who we Serve

When interferences to the nervous system are removed, homeostasis occurs. Human beings are innately designed to be in balance.


Chiropractic care is extremely important for the maturing and elderly adult because of the dramatic changes that occur in the spine with increasing age. As we age, especially if our daily life involves sedentary behavior, our spinal discs, facet joints, ligaments, muscles and other spinal tissues become weaker, less hydrated, more fibrotic (stiff), and less able to withstand normal stresses of our daily lives. As a result, spinal pain from spinal degeneration (arthritis) becomes more prominent, tissue injury from relatively benign events occurs (e.g. mowing your lawn or playing a pick-up game of basketball), and the time to heal from injuries increases.

Routine chiropractic care has a number of benefits which are especially important for maturing adults:


  • Relief from spinal and extremity pain
  • Decreased stiffness and muscular spasms
  • Decreased overall inflammation
  • Decreased arthritis and arthritic joint pain
  • Enhanced muscle, tendon, and ligament healing post injury
  • Increased mobility and range of motion
  • Increased balance and coordination, fall prevention
  • Increased sense of well being
  • Increased energy


Chiropractic for infants/toddlers can be helpful with:

  • Latching (also aiding in preventing mastitis in the mom)
  • Colic
  • Acid reflux
  • Ear infections
  • Head shape (especially in c-section born babies)
  • Bedwetting
  • Optimal spinal development
  • Optimal nervous system function

Chiropractic for adolescents can be helpful with:

  • General aches and pains
  • Headaches
  • Scoliosis
  • Strains/sprains of ankles
  • Sports or playground injuries
  • Identification of a more serious underlying cause of pain including spondylolysis, spondylolisthesis, or facet tropisms


Prenatal, Pregnant, & Postpartum Moms

Common pregnancy conditions include:

  • Shoulder and hip pain due to sleeping on your side
  • Ribcage pain due to expansion with increasing pregnancy and baby kicks
  • Heartburn due to relaxin causing the sphincter to allow stomach acid back up
  • Round ligament pain due to increasing anterior weight
  • Low back pain due to increasing anterior weight
  • Sciatic pain due to increasing anterior weight
  • Symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) and pain due to relaxin

Common postpartum conditions include:

  • Neck and upper back pain due to breastfeeding and carrying baby
  • Low back pain from the birthing process
  • Pelvic pain from the birthing process



Athletes know that proper spinal alignment and optimal nerve flow are essential for human performance. All 32 NFL teams have team chiropractors. 27/30 MLB teams have team chiropractors. Also, Chiropractors are present at every major golf tournament, each Olympic game and even almost every soccer match.

Chiropractic care can also help those weekend warriors who are triathlete competitors or even softball players improve performance through maintaining optimal function of the body.

What our patients are saying

“I always feel so much better when I leave Finan Chiropractic!! My body feels better from being adjusted and my heart feels better from the friendly people in the office. I would recommend to everyone!”

- Lisa C.

“The whole process was super easy. Filling out the forms and scheduling the appointment was a breeze. And Dr. Nate Backer was incredible. He is a straight shooter and does not try to hide anything from you. He focuses on fixing the problem, not the symptoms. Very personable and knowledgeable. Felt so much better after leaving the office. He assigned me stretches I could do at home to help relieve some of my pain and they are working great. Overall, a fantastic experience. Would definitely recommend!”

- David G.

“I have been a patient since 2014 and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Finan. She is attentive and extremely knowledgeable. I had previously quit seeing a chiropractor because my chronic pain was not being resolved – until I saw her! I recently began seeing Dr. Nate as well and have received nothing but excellent care as well. The office staff is so friendly and helpful – go, go, go! You won’t regret it.”

- Abigail C.

“Josh helped me recover from two running injuries this year. I was able to run a pain free half marathon three weeks ago, and I look forward to a healthy running year in 2017 thanks to the excellent care I received.”

- Joseph R.

“He (Dr. Backer) was very knowledgeable and helpful in asking great questions to try to figure out root causes of symptoms vs jumping straight into adjustments and such. He provided a lot of good information and took the time to discuss preventative habits with me such as stretching, sleeping positions, etc that may help prevent future symptoms. He was very skilled in adjusting and relieving tension I immediately felt an increase in mobility and decreased tension. Looking forward to my next appointment!”

- Marcus A.

“Dr. Finan is amazing. The rest of the staff is too. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. They are always on time. I’ve never waited more than 5 minutes in the year I’ve been going there. Dr. Finan has helped my back and ailments in such a short time. I feel great! Thank you!”
