Dr. Chris Tigges is trained and efficient at multiple chiropractic adjusting techniques to provide effective treatment that is comfortable to the patient.  The goal of chiropractic adjustments is to restore proper mobility to the spine and joints in the body.  This reduces the stress, strain, and irritation to the associated nerves, ligaments, tendons, and muscles thereby allows the body to heal properly and reduce symptoms.  Best of all, chiropractic adjustments have very little side effects, the most common being mild soreness.

  •         Chiropractic for Athletes

               The healing, restoration, and mobility effects of chiropractic care go hand-in-hand with active athletes who are looking to                    improve performance, prevent injuries, and bounce back from injury to participation more quickly.  There is good reason most                    professional sports teams and athletes utilize chiropractic care, and Dr. Chris provides the same great benefits to the athletes of                    North Polk High!

  •         Chiropractic for Children

               From the birth process itself to all of the falls, bumps, and bruises, a child's day is full of small traumas!  It is important to                    reduce and correct those small issues now, during the time of rapid growth and development, before they become big issues in                    the future!  Common health conditions seen in children such as ear infections, colic, reflux, indigestion, constipation, and bed                    wetting can often be caused by spinal and nerve irritation.  We can help!


Polk City Chiropractic offers therapeutic ultrasound which reduces inflammation and promotes healing in damaged soft tissues, as well as electric muscle stimulation which reduces tightness and spasm in irritated muscles.  These modalities help our patients feel better more quickly and reduce the treatment frequency needed.



Corrective exercises are given and demonstrated to our patients to help balance their body and restore stability to their spine.  Dr. Chris will identify which muscle groups need attention and will prescribe simple and effective exercises to correct those issues.  Stabilizing your spine will result in more effective and longer lasting results from our treatments.



Kinesiotape is designed to promote circulation to underlying joints and soft tissues, and support muscle groups during movement.  This results in decreasing inflammation and improving the healing time of damaged muscles, tendons, and ligaments.  Kinesiotaping is very effective for ankle, knee, and shoulder sprains/strains, muscle strains, and tendonitis.  Also, many athletes use kinesiotape to improve muscle endurance and performance during activity.
