Dr. David Strickler exclusively uses the Gonstead System of Chiropractic, along with Manual Adhesion Release (MAR®) and Integrative Diagnosis (id®) for spinal and soft tissue injuries. These complex protocols are thorough, complete and specific in both analyzing and treating the spine, along with removing scar tissue for injury recovery and increased mobility.


For years we have treated spinal, soft-tissue and sports related injuries from the same old model. Reach for the ibuprofen bottle, put an ice pack on the injured area, and avoid the activity that causes pain… These methods can be helpful in the short-term, but often fails to resolve the underlying cause of the condition. Associated Chiropractic & Soft Tissue is a functional health clinic with a focus on improving not just your current medical condition, but helping you improve your overall physical performance. Dr. Strickler specializes in spinal and soft tissue related injuries that result from everyday work and play.


Dr. Strickler treats a variety of spinal, soft tissue and sports injury conditions from a common sense approach. Instead of simply focusing on pain management, we offer treatments that help restore the normal functional ability for the body to move, bend, and twist as nature intended. Our intention is to fix your injury, educate on cause, and instruct on how to prevent re-injury with specific rehab exercises, stretches, and lifestyle modifications.


Applying anatomy to function is our specialty. Accurate and specific exams will lead doctors to the root of the problem. Dr. Strickler will offer a variety of focused short term treatment therapies that best match your type of spinal or tissue injury. As inflammation and pain subside, Dr. Strickler will help you with retraining the injured joint/tissue in order to prevent re-injury. Whether you are a professional athlete, an everyday person or one of our weekend warriors, you can be rest-assured, you will receive the same high standard of care in managing your health care concerns through Gonstead Chiropractic, Manual Adhesion Release (MAR®) and Integrative Diagnosis (id®).
