What Makes Our Office So Different?
The mission of Excel Chiropractic and Wellness is to provide the members of our community with high quality, affordable health care in a comfortable and caring environment. Our goal is not only to alleviate pain, but, more importantly, to inspire and educate our patients to become active participants in their own well-being.
We take the time to listen to your complaints and evaluate your body for what it is – a whole entity. You’re not just a low back, a knee, or a shoulder, so when you come to our office we want to address your main complaint and understand why that complaint is present. We would be doing you a disservice if we only touched the area of pain and didn’t take into consideration all the factors that could be causing you pain, and address other areas of dysfunction, so you can be the best version of yourself.
Our first goal with every patient is to conduct a thorough evaluation to understand their complaints, the cause of their pain, and their functional limitations. By doing this, we are able to determine a necessary treatment plan for each person to best address their issues. Yes, many people come to us in pain and are looking for answers. Yes, each doctor is very good at addressing your acute injuries and problems to help you get out of pain. Ultimately, our long-term goal for patients is to educate them on how to take care of themselves for the long haul and to understand that taking a preventative approach to their health care is far better than waiting until they are hurting so bad they can barely move. Wellness is what we all want, Wellness is what we all need, and Wellness is what we can help provide.
We truly care about every patient that comes through our doors and will do everything within our power to help each and every one of them improve the state of their health. The great thing is you don’t have to take our word for it. Just take a quick look through the hundreds of reviews we’ve received over the years to see what our patients say about our office. We take a patient-centric approach when it comes to care in our office. We want you to feel at home and know that we always have your best interest in mind.
Using a unique combination of specific Chiropractic adjustments, Active Release Technique (soft tissue treatment), and functional rehab we can help you go from pain and discomfort to Excelling with Wellness and living your life as the best version of you.
“From start to finish my experience with Dr. Ferguson was fantastic. The paperless system allowed me to complete my medical history from the comfort of my own home, without feeling rushed. At the very first session I was relieved to have light shed on the source of my pain. At the end of each session I walked out with more education, an exercise plan, and a renewed feeling of hope, knowing that I was on my way to being stronger and better than before. My only regret is that I didn’t go to Dr. Ferguson sooner. ”
“Being an endurance athlete and pushing my body to its max has ultimately caused me some injury along the way. I had not had any experience with chiropractic care in the past, but after meeting Aron through my local gym, I thought I would give it a try. I am SO thankful I did!!! Thanks to Dr. Ferguson's effective treatments, I have been able to quickly get over those injuries and get back to doing what I love! His knowledge, professionalism, and expertise are one of a kind!”
“This is the BEST chiropractor I’ve ever seen. And let me tell you, I’ve seen several chiropractors in 3 different states, so I know what I’m looking for in a good one and Dr. Jake Akerson is it!”
“I really enjoyed working with Dr. Aron Ferguson. What I appreciated most about his approach was that he looked beyond my presenting issue to better understand how to help alleviate my pain–he was not looking to make a “quick fix,” but an overall improvement in my health and well-being. I felt a noticeable difference after each visit, and could tell that I was making progress. I will continue to refer his services to my friends, co-workers and customers.”
“Dr. Jake knows that healing is more than a physical process, and has been a great support as I’ve struggled with my weight, learning about nutrition, exercise and overall health. I am confident I would not be achieving successful weight loss without his guidance and support.
I brought my retired mother (who lives hours away) to his office and he spent a lot of time with her, knowing she’d never be his patient long-term, examining her, asking questions and listening to her share the physical issues she’d dealt with for years. He explained the benefits of chiropractic care and how it could help her, and taught her simple exercises to improve her strength, and then set up a referral with a chiropractor in her area.
I feel blessed to be in Dr. Jake’s care. I have referred many people to Dr. Jake’s care and will continue to do so!”

What Could Not Fixing This Problem Cost You?
Every day we have people that come into the office with a problem and when we ask them when and how it first started they can point to the exact moment, sometimes decades earlier. At our office, we focus on how your body is functioning as opposed to how it is feeling. Pain and discomfort are intelligent reactions of the body, not defective reactions. When the body is functioning correctly there is no need for the intelligent reaction of pain. Unfortunately, too many patients only decide to seek care when they start feeling bad enough. The problem with that is pain is usually the last thing to show up and the first thing to go away when there is a functional problem. It is kind of like the tip of the iceberg. Pain is a terrible gauge for what is truly happening in the body. We may be improving functionally and still have some pain. Conversely, pain may not be present when we have improper function until it is too late.
When a patient has been dealing with a problem for so many years and then they start to function (and feel) better one thing that we commonly hear from them is, “I wish I would have found you guys years ago, it could have saved me time and money!” You see, matter has limitations. What we mean by that is that when something happens, let’s say you are in a car accident, your body changes. Now if we are able to treat someone right away, it is much more likely to get someone back to their “pre-injury” status because the changes haven’t become the new normal yet. The longer you wait, the more those changes become permanent. Scar tissue builds up, the way you move changes, nerves can be damaged and that all can happen without you feeling any pain. If we get to someone a long time after that accident, there is a good chance that we can get them feeling better but there is a certain amount of function that is never coming back, and if they aren’t able to function at 100% they will be more susceptible to injuries going forward. Many patients won’t have pain immediately after an accident, but their function is altered because their ligaments and tendons went through a stretching deformation and that causes the joints to move improperly. As 2-4 months of abnormal function pass by (all without pain), we start to have wear and tear on the structures and then pain sets in. Since the accident happened so long ago, we don’t often attribute our current pain with the accident.
