The Chance Chiropractic Center proudly serves Gainesville and the surrounding communities in Florida.
The Chance Chiropractors use chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient's lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. The Chance Chiropractic Center takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms.
Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and the doctors at Chance Chiropractic will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractors, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.

I've always been interested in helping others.
I thought that I would either be the quarterback for the Baltimore Colts or shortstop for the LA Dodgers. When I turned 10, I realized that I wasn’t a gifted athlete. What did I really want to be when I grew up? I wanted to be like my Dad – a Chiropractor. My Dad helped people every day and that’s what I wanted to do! I grew up with Chiropractic and whenever I didn’t feel well, my Dad would check and adjust me. I would immediately feel better. I never got sick like my friends. I always felt healthy and I didn’t even know what an aspirin was. Chiropractic was the “natural” choice–both meaning non-artificial and obvious choice.
I always strive to seek the natural approach to health…
As the youngest of four boys and the son of a second generation Chiropractor, I enjoyed an idyllic childhood free of any significant illnesses with nothing but the sunny outdoors and the ocean to enjoy every day. My father raised us with a natural approach to health, beginning every morning with fresh-squeezed orange juice and wheat germ. Medications were not part of his approach to illness, instead he relied on sound nutrition, adequate rest and making sure we were in proper alignment. Whenever we were feeling sick, we received any needed Chiropractic adjustments and were sent immediately to bed and almost always woke up feeling back to normal the next day. I’ve tried to raise my children the same way and advise my patients in the fundamentals of maintaining good health.
I’m here to serve you…
I was twelve years old and it was late at night when severe abdominal pains struck me. It was a call to my uncle, a chiropractor, that kept me from a long night in the emergency room. A simple visceral adjustment had me back asleep within 20 minutes.
Chiropractic is in my blood...
My father, Dr. Mike, has always been my hero, and in many patients’ eyes, an extremely successful healer. He is the part of the third-generation of Chance chiropractors to graduate from Palmer College. Within the past several years, my brother has graduated from Palmer and has joined my cousin as the fourth-generation of Chance chiropractors. Along with them, my father and his two brothers, who are also Palmer alum, are all practicing in Florida. This is how I know chiropractic, and Palmer, are in my blood.
As a child, I suffered from chronic ear infections that led to sleepless nights for my parents. This was preceded by having tubes put in to drain my ears as an infant, which serves as a reminder of what can go wrong when we attempt to control the natural inflammatory process. My father, Dr. Chris, had a lot of success with pediatric patients suffering from ear infections and had developed a reputation for being able to help with specific upper cervical adjustments. When this approach failed to help me, he was not afraid to adapt and try a new technique he had recently learned -- NAET. By addressing my allergies to Vitamin C and other triggers that no doctor could have logically suspected, he was able to end my struggles with ear infections.
