Will a Chiropractor Help End My Pain?

At Wellington Family Chiropractic, we use a whole-body approach to find your injury. We know that full balance and alignment are necessary for you to thrive. 


You don’t want to focus on pain; you want to focus on life and doing the things you enjoy; chiropractic care can help make that happen.

Chiropractic Services in Lexington

Because we work with a variety of patients ranging in age, injury, and ability, we offer an array of chiropractic solutions that can appeal to your unique needs and wellness goals. Our team never uses a general approach to your care but learns about you and your requirements prior to determining the best strategy. 


Each treatment is designed to restore your body to its full function so you can live pain-free.


Some of the chiropractic services we offer include: 


Chiropractic Adjustments or Spinal Manipulations

Adjustments are safe and effective; they offer a quick and controlled manual thrust to a targeted joint. While many times adjustments are given to spinal joints, they can be utilized in other areas of the body as well. 


When joints are compromised, surrounding soft tissues are also at risk and can be affected. Chiropractic adjustments realign the joint, provide balance, restore function, and improve movement patterns as they decrease pain.


Active Release Technique (ART)

ART is a massage technique that treats injured soft tissues, such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. We use ART on many patients; most are more physically active and rely on this method for a quicker recovery so they can get back to enjoying their active lifestyle.  


 We’ve seen our ART treatments help with:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shin splints
  • Shoulder pain
  • Sciatica
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Knee problems
  • Tennis elbow
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • And more


McKenzie Method

The McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) is an internationally researched and acclaimed system of assessment and management for spinal and extremity musculoskeletal disorders.


It offers a safe and reliable format to reach an accurate classification of the patient’s injuries so we can develop the appropriate management plan, taking into account all the various factors that can influence the patient’s experience of pain.


Dr. Ian is one of only a few healthcare providers in the area to use this technique, and he sees excellent results with it daily. 


Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)

DNS is a treatment that helps us assess and treat pain. It’s less forceful than adjustments and is based on exercises that stimulate the central nervous system to help repair improper movement patterns.  


This approach is safe and non-invasive, often providing immediate results.



This evaluation assesses the nervous system by placing tension on specific areas. It allows us to determine the best chiropractic solution for your body. 


Corrective Exercise and Rehabilitation

Muscular imbalances and injuries can cause substantial dysfunction in our joints. Using the correct exercises, we can help correct the imbalance and restore symmetry. Rehabilitation plans are developed based on your individual needs. 


We encourage an active, healthy lifestyle and offer various treatments to promote it. 

Choose Chiropractic Care for Your Health 

Chiropractic solutions nurture a natural, holistic recovery and support your healthy lifestyle. We often see results come in as little as one session, depending on your injury and its severity. Let Dr. Ian find the source of your pain, mend the issue, and get you back out there doing the activities you love. 

Patient Info

When you work with our team, you get more than quick results, but knowledge and guidance so you can support your body safely for years to come, helping you prevent further injury and gain strength. We know that maintaining your good results is vital to your health. 


If you’re struggling with pain, your relief is closer than you think. 


Your First Visit with Us

Upon your initial visit to our Lexington chiropractic clinic, we’ll discuss your medical history, current pain points, lifestyle, and goals before a physical examination. Our comprehensive exam will tell us all we need to know about your injury, and we’ll design a plan specific to you. 


We want you to feel confident in your wellness journey and will have an open dialogue with you throughout. 


We’re ready when you are.  


Dr. Ian Puntney has been the reason I have both avoided injuries and healed from some that could have been worse. As an athlete, his skill has been essential to my career. I trust his insight and can’t recommend him enough to anyone searching for wholistic care.
