4949 Professional Park Drive Suite 206 , Kannapolis, NC 28081

    Welcome to Cabarrus Chiropractic! Our goal is to ensure a pleasant and healing experience for you. Dr. James Litaker diagnoses and treats patients with health problems of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Working one-on-one with each patient, Dr. Litaker develops a personalized game plan to treat each patient’s problem and improve their general health. Chiropractic medicine is based on the principle that spinal joint misalignments interfere with the nervous system and can result in lower resistance to disease and many different conditions of diminished health. But chiropractic health benefits are so much greater than the relief of back or neck pain. Chiropractic is whole-body health care with the vision to see the body as much more than the sum of its parts. For these reasons, Dr. Litaker gives each patient his undivided attention to ensure a complete and thorough background is taken. Working together to achieve optimum health, each plan focuses on natural, drugless, nonsurgical health treatments, relying on the body’s inherent recuperative abilities.  The chiropractic approach to health care is holistic, stressing the patient’s overall well-being. It recognizes that many factors affect health, including exercise, diet, rest, environment and heredity. Dr. Litaker focuses on maintaining patients’ optimal health naturally so that the body is better able to resist disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms of disease. Cabarrus Chiropractic offers a complimentry first consultation.
