Chiropractic Medicine

Chiropractic is a physical medicine technique that uses a wide range of manual techniques. A chiropractic adjustment is designed to put motion into joints that have been restricted for a multitude of reasons. If you restore motion to a joint, you restore function to the entire muscular and nervous systems. An adjustment is a gentle, specific "thrust" to a restricted joint in the right direction, with the correct amount of force to regain motion to the joint and restore function to the entire muscular and nervous system. Occasionally there will be a "popping" noise, but not always, and is created by the release of nitrogen gas from inside the joint's capsule. See some of the conditions we treat with chiropractic medicine.

Customer Testimonials

Great doctor with an abundance of knowledge! I ran the Chicago Marathon this year for the first time and sustained a couple of overuse injuries during training (Go figure!). His treatment was fantastic and I was able to run without a problem. Couldn't have done it without him!!! I would highly recommend him.


Dr. Hartman is very attentive, thorough, and works with you to troubleshoot your pain using various modalities. He has treated and cured my nagging back pain of nearly 4 years in only 2 visits. He is also great with my teenage son whom he is treating for runners knee. Thanks to Dr Hartman, it looks like my son will have a successful cross country season afterall. So relieved to have found such a wonderful doctor!


I went in for a consultation, the staff and Dr. Holmes were very friendly and professional. The office has a really warm feeling. The Dr. was extremely knowledgeable and I never felt rushed when asking her questions. She took a lot of notes so that she could fully address all of my concerns. She also gave me a clip board so I could take notes as well. For the first time in a long time, I left out of the doctor's office feeling very hopeful! I would recommend that you visit and at least talk to the doctors here if you have any unanswered questions or want to take a more natural approach to getting better.


Functional medicine, acupuncture, and chiropractic treatment is the best at Hart Wellness.

I highly recommend Hart Wellness if you have unresolved health issues or want to find a natural solution for pain management. Stop putting a band aid on your health and get to the root of the problem at Hart! They also have an excellent yoga program, including yoga for kids!
