Below Chiropractic has been in Cullman for 60 years, and most recently made a location move, offering its clients more than just adjustments and x-rays, but a chance at a new, healthier lifestyle.
Below offers massage therapy, decompression, laser therapy, chiropractic adjustments, and fitness training.
Dr. Jeffrey Cole wants to give Cullman more options. He feels that Below Chiropractic is a one of a kind center.
“We’ve helped a lot of people over the years, and had a lot of great results in the community,” Cole said. “The reason this building exists is because we wanted to do more. If you look around Cullman, Alabama, and the whole country, people are more overweight and unhealthy than ever. We wanted to build an office that had more services to help get patients healthy, changing their lifestyle, getting them off the medications they’re on and really just help improve their overall health and well being.”
Cole said Below Chiropractic and Wellness Center’s goal is to help people more, whether it’s to get them out of pain with the therapy department, improving the fitness and physical health with the use of the wellness center, or assisting with injuries such as herniated discs.
“There is no facility like this in Alabama or really in the southeast United States in terms of having everything under one roof,” Cole said. “If you look around Cullman, there’s nothing else like it. There are gyms and massage therapy places, but no other facility led by doctors have the total package that can change every aspect of someone’s life.”
Although Below does offer large package options, clients can still choose to come for one of the many options they offer.
“You can come in just as a chiropractic patient, or just for massages, or decompression,” Cole said. “You can come in and just have personal training sessions with our trainer; you can do things individually or you can do the total package.”
“Give us eight weeks and we’ll change the rest of your life,” Dr. Cole mentioned as being the ‘tagline’ for an eight-week fitness program that gives the users a different outlook into losing weight and becoming healthier.
“Eight weeks to wellness program is a complete health and wellness program; it’s customized to each patient,” Cole said. “The program itself though, everyone will get two training’s a week, one massage, and a diet planned out, but everyone is different with what they can and cannot do in terms of gym limitations and such.”
Cole mentioned finding consistency in visiting the chiropractor is key to overall health, rather than waiting until symptoms appear.
“A lot of people go to chiropractors when they have symptoms, very reactive,” said Cole. “We want patients to become proactive, not just coming when something hurts and staying away when you feel fine. At this office we focus on chiropractic care in terms of even when you’re feeling fine, you want to come in and get checked and make sure that the bones are lined up right so you have continued health.”
Dr. Cole said you cannot be to young or old to visit the chiropractor; it’s about going consistently rather than when there is pain.
“There’s no age limit or an age that we wait to start,” Cole said. “We want to start immediately to give babies the best chance to be healthy throughout their life instead of waiting for problems to show up when we can prevent the problems from happening.”
