Lakewood Chiropractor treating a patient

A graduate of the esteemed Palmer College of Chiropractic, from which he graduated Magna Cum Laude, Dr. Nichols believes in a "whole person approach" to the care that he provides to his patients. He is a proud member of the Florida Chiropractic Association as well as the Florida Chiropractic Society, and his aim is to treat the root causes of their conditions rather than just the symptoms, and provides chiropractic care that is safe, effective, and drug-free. 

Services that Our Chiropractors Provide to Our Bradenton Area Patients

Our team is experienced in the most up-to-date treatment procedures and methods and we specialize in several different modalities in addition to chiropractic care. If you are interested in both care for medical conditions and chronic pain or want to live life at your optimum level of health, call us today for an appointment. We provide safe, effective and comprehensive care for:

  • Sports medicine
  • Nutrition
  • Auto injuries
  • Work-related injuries
  • Exercise rehabilitation
  • Pregnancy
  • Pediatrics

We believe that a healthy lifestyle is an essential part of wellness, and can work with you to increase your overall health. Through nutrition counseling and the use of supplements, we can ensure that your body is receiving the fuel that it needs to function at a high level. We can also provide a daily stretching and strengthening routine that you can complete at home between visits. Developing and strengthening the muscles that support the spine can help to decrease the chance of re-injury and keep your body functioning as it is designed.
