Chiropractor Kevin Maggs D.C.

Chiropractor Gainesville VA Kevin Maggs

Dr. Maggs is a provider and owner of Lively Health Clinic.  The focus of the practice is always on YOU.

  • 45 minute initial appointments and 30 minute regular treatments. This gives time for YOU to ask questions and to properly understand WHY you condition exists and HOW to properly manage it.
  • While chiropractic adjustments and soft tissue work are definitely employed, the main focus is on how YOU can cope with and gradually overcome your condition. This approach is far superior to a dependency on passive treatments that you have to go to the clinic for.
  • An attitude focusing on what you CAN do, instead of what you CANNOT do. The goal is to build strength and resiliency in the body and not focus on “you’re built wrong” or “you move wrong”.

To that end, Dr. Maggs made a video on the topic which has now been translated into 6 different languages, was featured on the British Journal of Sports Medicine webpage and is used for teaching purposes in various physical therapy colleges.
