Legacy Chiropractic

In chiropractic care, the correction of spinal misalignment is used to treat a wide range of physical illnesses, including muscle strain, neck discomfort, chronic back pain, and other conditions such as sciatica. Chiropractic re-alignment works by repositioning the spinal column to its correct shape. A patient can typically expect pain relief from this non-invasive treatment.

You might believe that chiropractic treatment is only effective for back issues; however, chiropractic treatment can be effective for a wide range of ailments that you may have thought had nothing to do with the spine! These include: migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, pain caused by accident or muscular strain, and much more.


Back Pain


Neck Pain


Shoulder Pain




Ever wonder where the word "chiropractic" even comes from? It has Greek origins! Cheir (hand) and praktos (done) are two Greek terms that have been combined to form the phrase "done by hand." Doctor Daniel David Palmer, the founder of chiropractic medicine, selected these to eventually become "chiropractic." During a chiropractic adjustment in 1895, D.D. Palmer treated janitor Harvey Lillard, who was largely deaf at the time. Harvey Lillard later stated that his hearing had improved because of the procedure.

The first chiropractic school was founded two years later by D.D. Palmer. Over the next century, chiropractors have used spinal adjustments to help people manage back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle strain, headaches, migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Today, Dr. Palmer's work still has an impact on millions of people.

Patient Adjustment at Legacy Chiropractic

Real People. Real Results.

I have been to multiple chiropractors, and Dr. Ballam is awesome, as is his wife. Above all else he is very thorough and his approach has made a huge difference in my back and neck. He really listens to what you have to say, and takes the time to address all your concerns. They are very patient and flexible and really care about their clients. I would recommend him to anyone, and frequently do.

When I began my trips to the chiropractic office, there was pain in my right shoulder, off and on for a while. Then it would get really sore. Also, there was a tenderness and soreness on my right hip that just wouldn’t go away. Once my adjustments began, within a two month time period, the pain in the right shoulder and right hip went away. Currently, I have no pain/problems in these areas of my body.

I have had chronic back pain for years. Since I have been coming here the back pain is gone. I also am a “self popper”-always popping my back-and the urge is now gone. I feel 100% better since coming to this office! I am grateful for everything Dr. Ballam has done for my back

I came to see Dr. John because I was having terrible lower back pain. After the first consultation we realized that my hips were not in the correct position. After just a few adjustments the pain was drastically reduced. The treatment was actually reduced to twice a month a lot quicker than we thought it would. I am now pain free and feeling great!
