Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression is a non-invasive mechanical procedure performed within our office to help alleviate back pain. It involves gently stretching the spine to take pressure off the spinal discs (the cushions that separate the vertebrae in the spine). By relieving this pressure, bulging discs can retract back into place which takes pressure off the nerves in the spine.

Nutritional Consultations

We want to help you on your journey towards health and wellness. Our goal is to help you achieve total health and balance with your body. In order to achieve that goal, we are here to offer specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to help you maintain a healthy weight.

Dr. Jeff Lavell and his team create a welcoming environment and take a practical approach to care, always delivering positive outcomes for me, and my family. Their tailored treatments often lead to significant improvements. Among many chiropractors I've visited, none match their level of service. 5 stars!


Dr. Lavell is the best chiropractor I've ever gone to. He never gave up on me and my injury. I was an athlete that needed to walk with a cane from my back injury. I am 100% better, stronger, and able to do the things I love to do. Thanks!

Dana H.

Dr. Jeff is caring, knowledgeable, and friendly. I have been going there for nearly 19 years now. His adjustments help me do the things I want to do.

Mary A.

A year ago after many other treatments, failed back surgery I thought I was running out of options then by chance a very good friend of mine told me about Specific Health and Dr Lavell. Today I am a new man. Dr Lavell and all the folks working at Specific Health are great to work with and have my utmost thanks and I will be forever grateful for how they have changed my life.

Tim O.

I felt heard! The introductory evaluation left me knowing what's wrong and if I want to proceed with treatment. Nice friendly staff!

Sarah L.

Very thorough and attentive, listening and offering diagnosis and treatment that wasn’t pushy, but appropriate. The Gonstead method really gives me results.

Ruth L.

I had never seen a doctor regarding my back or neck because I thought it was all part of getting older. I frequently took aspirin and or IBP after a long walk because of the pain and stiffness. At work when I would get up from my best after sitting for period of time. I would be so stiff I could not immediately stand up straight. I would need to walk slightly bent over… gradually standing up straight as I walked. My neck was stiff too but here again I thought it was part of getting older and probably needing… a better pillow. After beginning care with Specific Family when I get up I am no longer stiff and unable to straighten up. My back feels great. . I am grateful and more than satisfied with the quality of care I have received at SFC. I have highly recommended them to other family members who have also been fully satisfied with care and results they have received.

Susan M.

I had pain and tightness in neck and back. On a scale of 1-10 I would say it was an “8”. I have had this for 2+ years. I use to see a chiropractor in Illinois that used the Gonstead technique and he told me to be sure and find a doctor that used this. To make a long story short, I didn’t. I was miserable and now I come to Specific Family Chiropractic and I feel “GOOD”! No, my insurance does not cover this for me, but I come anyway. I know a good thing when I have found it! I still come but my initial problem took about two months to get results. I am treated very well and I do know that they truly care for the way I feel.

Shelley W.

Great staff, great Doctor as Dr. Lavell explained and carefully went through all options for treatment… highly recommend!

Frank B.

I have been going to Dr Jeff Lavell for over 20 years. Prior to going to Specific Chiropractors. I wasn't able to go 3 weeks without pain. Dr Jeff is the first Chiropractor who has given me weeks between visits. The only reason it isn't longer is my fault. I don't get enough exercise and stretching. So I'm not playing my part. They have a wide range of services to mitigate pain and help one get back to feeling good. I also like to get massages there. Dr Jeff is well educated in functional medicine and uses supplements to assist the body in healing itself. He is constantly researching various products as to their uses and effectiveness. When he makes a suggestion I know it's because it has been proven to work. I often use his suggestions along with my prescribed medication. I find Specific Health and the people there particularly caring, knowledgeable and interested in my wellbeing.

Georgianna L.

They use the Gonstead Chiropractic method vs just the "normal" Chiropractic - It made a noticeable difference on me.

Jay R.

Specific Health shows their commitment to my health. I was in an auto accident and called there, leaving a voicemail after hours, and sure enough, right away the next morning, K called me and squeezed me in to see a dr that day to check me out and treat me. THANK YOU 😊 Highly recommend the caring folks at Specific Health & Chiropractic


Been struggling with Tinnitus and neck pain. The decompression machine has helped me enjoy life again!

Matt B.

Dr Lavell is very concerned about people's health , and is very instructive, so much that you can understand it, on how to get and repair the damage.

Geo K.

Dr Jeff Lavell is an outstanding chiropractor. I have been a loyal patient for several years and enjoy his expertise. He often provides extra tips on how to improve my health and is very personable & professional. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a chiropractor to help manage their pain. His front desk staff (Kristin) always has a smile when I arrive and is always efficient in making sure I have my next appointment that works for me. His whole office goes above and beyond for their patients!

Bill J.

I have had chronic back pain after a couple of falls and multiple compression fractures. Specific Health has dramatically improved my quality of life.

After success with my initial treatment that was a success in reversing severe back pain, I have chosen to use Specific Health for regular maintenance — adjustments. I am very great-full..


Dr Lavelle is fabulous. Caring and kind. Sometimes my pain is unbearable. I always have less pain when I leave his office. John and Monique are very skilled also. Thanks for your care!!
