MACOMB — Dr Derek and April King celebrated the 12th anniversary of their Macomb office on February 1.
They both are originally from the area and attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport. Derek earned his Doctor of Chiropractic while April completed the Chiropractic Technician program before moving back to the area.
“We wanted to be back around family and we knew kids were coming,” April said. “It’s nice to have our name out there and have relationships with people in the community.”
The couple have two children, Dylan, 12, a sixth grader, and Addy, 8, a third grader. They stay busy with their kid’s activities. Derek enjoys hunting with Dylan and watching most sports. April enjoys running and working out.
They not only specialize in chiropractic care, including pain relief for back and neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine; but also corrective exercises, lifestyle advice, and nutritional counseling. Dr King sees patients of all ages from newborns to the elderly. He also does DOT physicals.
Their Bushnell office opened in September 2013 and they say they are thankful for all of the support they have received since they opened 12 years ago.
“Going from nothing to where we are now is crazy,” Derek said. “We poured blood, sweat and tears into opening from nothing to opening up a second office.”
Not only do they see people from Macomb and Bushnell, but also from surrounding communities such as Roseville, Rushville, Table Grove, and Canton.
They are open in the Macomb office Mondays and Wednesdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2 to 6 p.m., on Fridays from 8 to 10 a.m. The office is located at 6 Doctors Lane, #2N. The Bushnell office is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and on Fridays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is located at 448 Cole Street. They can be reached at (309) 837-6932.
