Voted Best Chiropractor in Hammond

Anthon Chiropractic Care opened its doors in 1993, and has been providing chiropractic care, massage therapy, and rehabilitation to the community since. We have been voted “Best Chiropractor in Hammond” by the readers of the Daily Star for 14 years!

Chiropractic care does not focus on the symptoms a patient presents with, but rather focuses on the cause of the problem. By working to restore the normal function of the body, chiropractic care can often prevent the need for medications as well as surgery.

Because chiropractic is a non-invasive, conservative approach, it is not only a safe, but also effective form of health care for patients ranging from newborns to the elderly.
