Plantar Fascitis is one of the most common foot disorders that we see in our office. The Plantar Fascia is a ligament that connects our heel to our toes. This ligament helps hold up our arches in our feet, and when it becomes irritated we get this syndrome. The most common complaint of plantar fasciitis is pain, which is most prevalent in the mornings or after getting up from sitting. People who are on their feet a lot during the day and runners are the most commonly affected. A proactive approach to this problem can keep the patient from costly surgery or shots. The doctor evaluates the issues, and a treatment plan is set fourth. Some common treatments are sub-aqueous ultrasound, icing, cross friction massage, and stretching of the soleus/hamstrings.

It is common for a pregnant mother to have back and hip pain. We treat many mothers for this. Part
of the reason for the pain is due to the postural changes the mother’s body goes through as the
baby grows. The body also releases a hormone relaxin that “relaxes” all of her ligaments, causing
more instability. Treatments can help with this discomfort, and they also can help with the baby’s
development and position.
I use the Webster Technique to adjust during pregnancy. It is a specific adjustment to the mother’s
pelvis that benefits both mother and baby. This technique takes additional training and certification
which I have accomplished. Many of our patients have had success in their pregnancy and delivery with these treatments.

Chiropractic care is good for the whole family. We treat grandparents all the way down to newborns.
The Chiropractic Physicians at CCWC are trained in multiple treatment techniques depending on the patient’s age and problem.
You’re probably thinking, “Babies? You treat babies!?”
Yes! Infants make up 25% of our practice. Chiropractic treatments help with cranial molding or shaping. Treatments of infants also has found to be helpful with colic, bowels, earaches, wry neck, and a host of other things.
Growing years- we treat a lot of kids in their youth for injury. However, one of the most common is poor posture. We treat the spine and also give instruction on posture changes, posture exercises, and sometimes include bracing to help with more difficult cases. The spine grows mostly between the ages of 9-15, so we recommend at least two spinal checks a year for our school-aged patients.
Adulthood brings education with a lot of sitting and also entering into the workforce. Depending on the patient, we treat once a month to help maintain spinal alignment all the way to allowing the patient to call when they need a “tune-up”.
Remember you only have one spine for a lifetime! So treat it right! A lot of people take better care of their teeth than their spine. You can replace your teeth. You can’t replace your spine!
Take care of that spine

“How early can I get my baby a treatment?” This is a question we get asked by many patients.
Chiropractors have been treating babies as soon as they are born for many years. I personally treated both of my children as infants; even just a few hours old. So, I guess the answer to the question is…Once the baby is born, it is ready anytime to have its first chiropractic adjustment. Just make sure you take them to a licensed chiropractor who specializes in pediatrics and infants.

Each year 30 million children in the US are treated for middle ear
infections. Middle ear infection is the number one condition for
doctor visits by children under the age of 15. The conventional method of
treatment involves antibiotic treatment or a surgical procedure to
implant ear tubes. The problem with these solutions is that, though
relief may be provided, it is usually a temporary fix.
In our office we see a significant amount of childhood ear conditions,
and have had success working with them. What seems to be ignored in

Dr. Waggoner has been practicing for many years. But it was in 2009 that he decided to open up an office in Shipshewana. At that time, he had five people on staff including himself. Part of his vision was to offer a complete health and wellness solution. So, over time he has added on massage therapy, acupuncture, EDS, and other services. His business began to grow very quickly, and with that growth comes the need for more staff to handle the many patients, phone calls, and paper work. In early 2012, the Millersburg office opened up to offer another convenient location for full wellness care. As you can see in the photo above, Community Chiropractic and Wellness Center has grown from 5 staff members to 20 as of April 2013. Thank you to all of our patients for your business and referrals! We appreciate you, and look forward to providing you with many more years of service!
