Corrective Chiropractic in San Antonio: This type of care is similar to getting braces for your misaligned teeth. We use special exercises, traction, and adjustments to realign the spine. In doing so, we eliminate the source of pain, numbness, and weakness.
Our team specializes in corrective chiropractic and the WHY (cause) of the issues you are facing. We take x-rays at the start to see what the curves and alignment of your spine look like. We may find that correction may be your answer! Headaches, neck pain, back pain, low energy levels are all symptoms of a spine that needs correction.
Corrective chiropractic is our niche. We want to help you for the long term – not just the short term. We want to teach you about your spine, optimal alignment and posture.
Corrective Chiropractic Promotes Optimal Posture
Forward posture is a common problem today. The natural curve of the spine in your neck can become misaligned and the result is neck pain and rounded shoulders. Chiropractic therapies and strengthening exercises can restore the normal alignment of your head and neck to relieve headaches, neck pain and shoulder pain. Adjustments realign the body and help the nervous system work optimally. Corrective chiropractic restores and maintains spinal integrity and balance for wellness and range of motion.
Some of the common issues that corrective chiropractic care can treat:
- Back Pain and Neck Pain
- Whiplash and Auto Injuries
- Degenerative disc disease, herniated or bulging discs
- Sinus issues or allergies
- Immune system issues
- Numbness, tingling or pain in the extremities
- and more!
Non-Invasive and Medication-Free Treatment
Chiropractic care works with gentle manual manipulation to correct subluxations in the spine. When the vertebrae are out of alignment, it can cause terrible symptoms, such as pain and other long-term ailments. Our experienced doctor will work with you to help gently move your body back into place.

Along with corrective chiropractic care, we offer physical therapy and other treatments to aid in your recovery and pain reduction. A full rehabilitation and strengthening program is essential to ensure full recovery and in order to prevent further injury. Physical therapy exercises sometimes include muscle stretching, joint mobility exercises or muscle strengthening exercises. Electrical Muscle Stimulation is another great supplemental treatment, it works with the nervous system to reroute pain receptors to provide relief. Myofascial release can also be incorporated as well, relaxing and releasing tense muscles. Dr. Oliver will work with you to find the best comprehensive approach possible!
I have had chronic headaches and neck pain since early childhood. I have been to 6 chiropractor’s in my life. Some gave me temporary relief of pain but they never took care of the underlying problem. In 2016, I learned about Dr. Oliver who is a Physical Therapist & a Chiropractor. I started going to see him and through his complete and thorough approach he is changing the curves in my spine. I rarely have a headache and only periodic neck pain when I haven’t done the exercises he taught me. I feel empowered that I can now do something to help myself! Recieving care from Dr. Oliver, who is both skilled and friendly, has been life changing for me. I write this review in hopes that others may find lasting relief for yourselves through Dr. Oliver’s complete approach.
I originally visited Integrative Medical for issues I was having with my back. After 3 sessions I felt the staff was just throwing me on a massage bed and had me do silly excericises similar to what I did in elementary school for stretches. I had explained my issues to a friend and she recommended me to try out Dr. Oliver. From the minute I walked in Dr. Oliver’s Office, I felt the staff seemed more professional. Dr. Oliver had up to date X-ray equipment that was more detailed oriented. He explained and showed more details to what was my problem with my back than what I got from Integrative Medical. Dr. Oliver would pop my neck and back into place, had me do more challenging excersises that actually strengthened my back, and had more state of the art equipment to treat people with. Needless to say, I left Integrative Medical to continue and complete my 30 sessions with Dr. Oliver. I felt more welcomed as well as more confident in what I was getting from Dr. Oliver than Integrative Medical. I would reccommend Dr. Oliver to any of my personal friends and family.
I was referred to Dr. Oliver after a neck injury. I had never endured such pain to my neck to where I couldn’t lift a grocery bag. NO matter what my posture was (sitting, standing, laying down), I was in lots of pain. When I called I was concerned they wouldn’t have time to fit me in. Once I explained my situation and pain they had me wait a day for swelling to go down then to come in the next day. I could tell that he “fit” me in cause he was very busy. He still took the time to give me a full evaluation, The staff was amazing and friendly too, Even though I was in pain they could still make you smile. After a week of following Dr. Oliver’s instructions, I was back to normal! I would refer him to any one!!! Thank you Dr. Oliver and Staff
I originally found Dr. Oliver when I was looking for someone to help me with ongoing foot issues. As a marching band director I had been referred to a podiatrist and told that I might be looking at surgery. I wasn’t convinced and wanted to try dealing with any underlying issues first so I went looking for a chiropractor who was also a physical therapist. I was convinced that spinal alignment was part of the issue and that the podiatrist would send me to PT first.
When I met with Dr. Oliver and he evaluated my issue he was very honest that he had not treated this particular issue before and that he was willing to work through a course of treatment to get my hip issues straightened out and work on my feet at the same time and see what we could do. That course of treatment was successful and I went on my merry way very happy to have avoided surgery.
Three years later I’m back and addressing a different set of issues that I have been ignoring for a long time. By the time I got to Dr. Oliver I was in so much pain that I was struggling to do my job. Dr. Oliver not only evaluated my structural condition but my overall nutrition and health. He laid out a plan for treatment that addressed not just the underlying structural issues but also helped me to identify the nutritional issues and other health issues that I need to be addressing. We’re well into my treatment plan and I can honestly say that I feel better than I have in years. I’m committed to doing what I need to to feel better and so thankful to find Dr. Oliver and his staff!
Thank You so much to Dr. Charlie Oliver & staff for getting me walking again. I appreciated the one on one time with Dr. Oliver to develop a plan specifically formulated to help my specific needs. I literally hobbled into his office two days ago in excruciating pain that I felt was going to affect my ability to continue to work as a massage therapist. After he took some X-rays and did an extensive physical evaluation and evaluated my X-rays he sat down and spoke candidly with me and devised a plan for me to get me back on track and on the road to recovery without surgery. He took me aside and provided me with a treatment that very same day because he couldn’t bear to see me hobble out of his door. He wasn’t looking for a way to mask my pain but, to find the source of my pain and correct it.
I would recommend coming here! I have had headaches for over a decade. I would go to doctor after doctor and explain to them that I don’t simply want pills thrown at the problem. I never felt listened to. I didn’t feel like these doctors were on my side. They never seemed to want to help me find the problem, instead they just wanted to help me manage the symptoms. I don’t believe it’s natural or right to be in pain every day of your life, so managing the symptoms was not a desirable solution for me. Then I came across Charles Oliver and his staff. He immediately caught my attention when he talked to me about getting to the root of the problem. I love his holistic approach. And the best part is that he is listening to me. I finally feel like I have someone rooting for me and actively helping me heal rather than just managing my symptoms. He did a comprehensive evaluation and x-rays. He showed me step-by-step what was wrong and how it could be fixed. I absolutely love his approach. Thank you so much Charles Oliver and staff! I would 100% recommend coming to this business. In fact, I already have told friends and family how much this is helping me and I’ve recommended they make appointments as well.
I also talked to Dr. Oliver about my knee pain. He has been treating the pain I’ve had in my left knee. I’ve had the pain for 2.5 years. It got to the point where I had to wear a knee brace the majority of the time because it hurt to walk. Since Dr. Oliver has been treating my knee the pain is gone. It is uncomfortable from time to time but it is no longer painful. During my knee treatment there was even a time I was not able to go back to the chiropractor for a month. During that month away from treatment my knee pain did not return. I am in awe at how quickly he is able to make pain go away with his treatments.
Dr. Oliver is awesome! I came to see him with a running injury, and after a few visits he had me running pain free again!
First visit for cronic, acute back pain. Dr. Oliver was able to determine the root cause of the pain which, I must say, other doctors I’ve seen hadn’t even attempted to find.
I have spondylolesthesis (a forward shifting of a vertebrae) which allows diminished mobility and flexibility because of the level of constant pain. Yes, the shift caused discs to rupture and touch a nerve. The nerve (being only the transmitting link to the brain for feeling) however, goes to something else telling the nerve what to feel.
That “something else” is the CAUSE of the pain. In my case, it is a specific muscle attached to the spine.
First visit. So far so good. Dr was very direct on what he could to and could not do. Told him my main concern was cost, he said he understood and could work with me. Front desk staff very friendly. Took me on a brief tour, offered water and was concerned of my needs. For a first visit I would say it was a excellent experience.
