About Us

Not only is Pure Wellness Chiropractic one of the finest chiropractic clinics in the region, we pride ourselves in being a complete wellness center for injury rehabilitation and improving your health and strengthening your body to reduce the risk of re-injury. That's why so many of our patients travel from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland in the surrounding region to attend our facilities here in Delaware.

We Emphasize a Whole-Body Wellness Approach to Good Health and Fitness to Prevent Injury and Illness

Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness if they could. Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs,  emphasizes improving your health and wellness in the first place, so you can reduce your risk of pain, injury and illness before it has a chance to occur.

Assessing your range of motion

One of the negative side effects of our relatively sedentary and stressful modern lives is weak back muscles and stiff spinal joints, subjecting us to risk of injury from any unusual lifting or twisting motion.

Pure Wellness Chiropractic can evaluate your muscle strength and range of motion and recommend treatments to help you regain and maintain your body's normal strength and mobility so that you don't have to suffer lower back or neck pain, missed work, and all that goes with it.

Are you getting the most benefit from exercise?

If you supplement your daily activity with regular exercise, it's important to make sure you're getting the full benefit. A tight spinal column can restrict the expansion of your rib cage which limits the full functioning of your heart and lungs during exercise.

At Pure Wellness, we can optimize the mobility of your spinal joints, muscles and ligaments to restore the freedom of your rib cage to expand fully so that you can get the full benefit of your cardio workout.

People are recognizing the benefit of seeking an alternative to traditional medicine.

Range of motion evaluation and optimizing spinal mobility are just two examples of what we mean by taking a wellness approach to your health - we offer much more, including massage therapy, nutrition and homeopathic remedies for a truly holistic approach to your health. Whether you're seeking a rediscovery of previous health and wellness or embarking on a new journey, you'll feel the difference - which is why our wellness center is so popular.

Seeking alternative medicine is a great way to take an active role in your health, rather than reacting to illness. Why not join us?
