Health In Motion Chiropractic provides quality chiropractic care for patients in Debary, Lake Mary, Sanford, Orange City, Deltona and Deland. Chiropractic care is a drug-free, surgery-free form of health care that focuses on musculoskeletal injuries of the spine and extremities. Headed by our Chiropractor, Doctor Jenette Auchter, we welcome you to an office focused on many aspects of your health but with one objective; get you back to where you want to be... or higher.
Chiropractic clinical management includes diagnosis and treatment, with an emphasis on prevention, rehabilitation, wellness and treating the body as a whole system. Our Chiropractor's treatments focus on active care that empowers the patient toward management of his/her own health. Our treatment goals are functional and focus on returning our patients to normal activities of daily living and improvement in quality of life.
The number one reason most people visit a chiropractor is for back pain, and neck pain which can be caused by a variety of injuries, including herniated discs, sciatica, radiculopathy, spinal stenosis and arthritis. Chiropractic adjustments, decompression and manual therapy are effective at reducing back and neck pain which heal the underlying injury.
Chiropractic care is also effective for treating sports and repetitive motion injuries. Common sports and repetitive motion injuries we treat include rotator cuff/ shoulder injuries, achilles tendinitis, frozen shoulder, golfer/tennis elbow, hip and shoulder bursitis, runners knee, tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Car accidents are notorious for causing whiplash, herniated discs in the back and neck and headaches. Our Chiropractor's treatments are effective at lowering the symptoms of whiplash, including neck pain, stiffness and headaches while allowing the muscles, tendons, ligament, discs and joints to heal properly after the injury to lessen the long-term effects of whiplash.
The chiropractic adjustment provides a fast stretch to the soft tissue around a joint and gives motion back to the joint. This allows for a decrease in muscle spasm and increased joint mobility, resulting in more function, resolved joint inflammation, improved structural alignment and a decrease in pain for the patient. The adjustment is accompanied by a release of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, which releases joint pressure causing a cavitation or what we fondly call the “cracking” sound.
While Chiropractic is mostly associated with the "cracking" style, also known as the “manual adjustment” there are many other techniques we use at Health In Motion Chiropractic to treat conditions. Our chiropractor, Doctor Auchter, is aware that some patients have concerns or do not feel comfortable with the “popping” noise and fast stretch movements to the spine, so we offer soft tissue mobilization and instrument adjusting. These techniques will provide increased range of motion to any joint restriction and help reduce pain.
Our Chiropractor's top priority is making sure our patients are comfortable with treatment. We can change techniques to work with the patient’s comfort level while providing improved range of motion and decreased pain.

Chiropractic is beneficial for many injuries such as low back pain, headaches, and neck pain. Chiropractic is essential for athletes looking to gain that competitive edge and for their general wellness. Patients who spend hours sitting at work or driving causing tightness and stiffness can also benefit from chiropractic to make sure they keep injuries from occurring!
Since chiropractic is a physical profession that involves improving range of motion, patients may experience muscle soreness after their first visit. Unlike the side effects from medication or surgery, these symptoms usually resolve after 24 hours and, as patients continue care, soreness continues to decrease. Chiropractic is a safe and effective treatment option for neck pain, back pain, and other musculoskeletal injuries.
