About Us

The Viking Chiropractic


Chiropractic is a philosophy, science and art. The philosophy of chiropractic is built upon the constructs of vitalism, holism, conservatism, naturalism and rationalism. It provides context for the application of science and art.

Health is a state of optimal physical, emotional and social well-being. Central to the philosophy of chiropractic is the principle that life is intelligent. This innate intelligence strives to maintain a state of health through adaptation mechanisms. The nervous system is recognized as an avenue for these self-regulating processes. Interference with neurological function can impede these mechanisms, disrupt homeostatic balance and adversely impact health. Chiropractic believes that subluxation of the spinal column and other articulations can affect nervous system function and the expression of health, which may result in symptoms, infirmity and disease.

Viking Chiropractic

Offers Therapeutic Exercise sessions for all ages and goals. These sessions utilize a functional full body approach by strengthening under looked areas that may have become weakened from lack of use over time. The workout programs get straight to the point and provide reduced pain, weight loss, less stiffness of joints, improved mental clarity, increased strength, improved recovery time, increased range of motion and mobility in joints, and lead to ease of daily tasks – such as getting up and down off the ground, increased grip strength, and energy levels.

If there is an initial exercise or type of movement that concerns you, your trainer will find a solution. Through conversations with your trainer, you will gain the physical ability and confidence you need.

The sessions begin with a full body movement evaluation to determine your current strengths and weaknesses, this is what is used to customize and prioritize your workouts.

Foot detox and red light therapy are two different methods of detoxification, and they work in different ways.

Foot detox is a process that involves soaking your feet in a warm water bath that contains salt and other minerals. The idea behind this method is that the minerals in the water will help to draw out toxins from your body through your feet. However, there is no scientific evidence to support the claim that foot detox can remove toxins from your body 1.

Red light therapy, on the other hand, is a technique that uses low-level wavelengths of light to address issues such as scars, wounds, wrinkles, and more. It works by stimulating the mitochondria in your cells, which helps to increase the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of life.

Toning Classes are aimed toward middle-aged adults that are looking to lose excess weight and gain lean muscle. These classes are 30-45 minutes long and include more cardio than the other class options.

(Ages 50-100+)

I specialize in Myofascial Release Therapy. “Myo” refers to muscle, and “fascia” to the elastic web of connective tissue that ties your body together. My technique helps relieve tension and pain by releasing and lengthening both muscles and fascia.

Chad Hickey DC

I am a Palmer College graduate with over 25 years of experience. I strive to have an office that can treat the “whole” patient. I typically use Gonstead and Diversified techniques, but I am always looking to learn new treatment protocols through continuing education. Our office has achieved what has been my vision for years. We offer several different massage therapists who each bring their own expertise, and now we are able to offer personalized training classes that can target specific body parts or overall body correction. I have loved my opportunity to treat the Lakewood community for all these years and look forward to many more years of interactions.
