Philosophy and Treatment
Dr. Hartley is known for treating patients through structural correction chiropractic care in addition to education, nutrition and exercise. Sensitive to the unique needs of individuals in all stages of life, Dr. Hartley is certified in the Webster Technique through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. A treatment sought by expectant mothers, it helps to keep the pelvis properly balanced throughout the term of the pregnancy. The technique ultimately trains the body to maximize its natural ability. When the neuro-biomechanical function in the pelvis is improved, proper pelvic balance is restored and optimal fetal positioning is facilitated.
Seminars and Support Groups
With a practice dedicated to education, Dr. Hartley hosts workshops and seminars relevant to health, healing, nutrition, and exercise. Hartley Chiropractic Center is devoted to making this important contribution to the community with topics ranging from cancer prevention to spinal correction to weight loss. All events are free and open to the public. The intention is not to just relieve pain, but to restore health.
Dr. Hartley sees patients in the office at 2653 Ulmerton Road in Clearwater, Florida and speaks publicly to groups, churches, corporations, and through radio and television about the message of true health and healing.
