About Dr. Mager

Welcome to the Mager Chiropractic Center web page, which is dedicated to helping people of all ages regain and build on the incredible health potential they have within. This office is a realization of a dream that started when I was 12 years old and decided to become a chiropractor. This is a very unique chiropractic center based on three principles. The first is that health is a learned behavior with the potential to relearn healthier patterns at any age. The second is that quality of motion, particularly of the spinal column, will ultimately affect the quality of your health. Motion is the primary nutrient for your brain. The third principle is that health is truly expressed by the neurological tone of the muscles. Touching the muscles particularly along the spinal column, to determine whether they have proper tone or tautness, reveals your quality of health.

Your quality of relationships, creativity and energy level are all related to your quality of health. Our goal at Mager Chiropractic Center is to maximize the health potential you have within.

Mager Chiropractic Center was established in 1985 after 4 years of practicing in a high touch chiropractic and Nimmo trigger point therapy center.

Education: Pre med 1976 and 1977 at West Virginia University, University of Pittsburgh.

Graduated 1980, Palmer College of Chiropractic.

Board eligible diplomate in chiropractic orthopedics.

Personal: I am the father of 4 grown children and 7 grandchildren. I am a passionate reader, particularly of nonfiction and passionate about fitness, sports and music. My primary passion is health and human behavior which I began studying in my teens.

Our Patients Say It Best

What I thought would be a "quick fix" for pain relief has evolved into a better understanding of myself and how my body works. My understanding of what "health" is and how to stay healthy has changed. I have become "tuned into' how my body is feeling. After each adjustment, I feel a sort of release, or relief... a freedom of movement that is hard to express in words.
