I got right in at my appointment time and Dr Scott took time to ask not just about my chiropractic issues but my overall well being. He is always so polite and kind. I got my neck adjusted and was on my way. He isn't one of those that make you return 40 more times. He provides for my needs in an excellent manner.

Customer Testimonials

First time at Pro Active .Really think I am being taken care of .Feeling really bad but Dr. Stiffey is going to make me feel like normal and maybe better


Dr. Stiffey and his staff are truly AWESOME!

The way Scott practices & educates speaks for itself!

I will definitely recommend Pro Active Chiropractic to anyone who is looking for a upright health provider!


Today was my first visit and I was not disappointed. I have been to the chiropractor many times... this was my best experience so far. It was more than just about adjusting my back/ neck and sending me on my way. I will definitely be going back!


Dr. Stiffey has really helped my migraines. I used to take different meds all the time but they didn't really help. Just blocked the pain for a while. After going through a treatment plan I never have any headaches.


Very friendly and was able to see the dr the same day I called will definitely go back


Dr. Stiffey has really helped my back. I thought I was going to have to get back surgery, but I feel great now. I always love coming to his office. Everyone is so friendly, and I always feel better when I leave.


So enjoy the professional care that I am getting. Pain has decreased. Can’t wait to see the end results. I’ll be a new person.

The good news is that if the bending of the spine is discovered and cared for properly during its early stages, it can be prevented from advancing over time.
