About Us

Hungerford Chiropractic was founded by Dr. Chad Hungerford in 1998 specializing in conservative treatment of musculoskeletal health conditions. In the summer of 2008, Dr. Hungerford added a Physical Therapy department and welcomed a staff with over 35+ years of experience. The company name was then formally changed to Hungerford Chiropractic and Physical Therapy. Dr. Matt Jones joined the staff in the winter of 2009 to further enhance our excellence in patient care.
