Conditions We Treat

At the Moore Chiropractic Health Care Center, we treat a vast array of symptoms from chronic pain to pain caused by recent injuries. Everyone deserves a healthy, pain-free life.  For those living with chronic pain or discomfort, did you know that chiropractic care is one of the best ways to alleviate pain from your life?  Working in partnership with each patient, Dr. Moore can identify and address the root cause of pain, rather than offering only temporary relief of the symptoms.  When chiropractors align the vertebrae of the spine properly, it can reduce pain and tension in the body.  This is especially true for the back, neck, hips, and head. Additionally, there are many other conditions that respond well to chiropractic care. By resolving the source of the problem through adjustments, and with ongoing care, the effects can be life-changing.

I've been going to Michele since I moved to Austin three years ago. I've seen a lot of chiropractors in my 68 years, and I do believe she is the best. She gives you individualized attention, is genuinely concerned about how you feel, and gives a fantastic adjustment. My neck and spine have not been in this good shape for years. I recommend her to all my friends.

I am 71, a lady and was in pain.  I have severe osteoarthritis - neck, mid and lower back, hips, knees.  I broke my lower back two years ago.  I was so out of alignment for my first appointment that I had trouble balancing.  Dr. Moore evaluated, adjusted, recommended exercises/supplements and now I am as good as it gets.  I am going to have a knee replacement hopefully next month and trust me Michelle will be part of my rehabilitative therapy.  She has helped me come to grips with the fact that it is needed.

Trust me you cannot find a better health professional.
