Chiropractors are designated as physician-level providers in the vast majority of states and federal Medicare program. The essential services provided by chiropractors are also available in federal health delivery systems, including those administered by Medicaid, the U.S. Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense, Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, Federal Workers’ Compensation, and all state workers’ compensation programs.

It is estimated that chiropractors treat more than 35 million Americans (adults and children) annually, according to the American Chiropractic Association, and some of those patients get treatment at CORE Chiropractic & Physical Therapy in Millis. 
“Our staff is dedicated to high-quality and personalized care for each patient,” says owner, founder, and chiropractor Kelly Cornell. “We take the time to address every patient's concerns and health issues, and enjoy spending one-on-one time with our patients to assist in the healing process.” 
Cornell says the beginning of the new year “is a great time to prioritize your health with skilled assessments and treatments from experienced chiropractors and physical therapists.” 
CORE, which opened in Millis in 2021, has a staff of chiropractors and physical therapists with approximately 50 years combined PT experience, and 24 years combined chiropractic experience.
Chiropractic services 
Among its many chiropractic services, CORE offers spinal and extremity manipulation, Cox flexion-distraction technique, manual therapy, and TMJ manipulation. 

CORE also offers the Webster technique for pregnancy and postpartum to alleviate pain and discomfort during pregnancy, and focuses on “optimal neurological function of the uterus, optimal passage for the fetus through the uterine canal during birth, and relieves ligament tension on the uterus allowing for optimal fetal presentation,” to CORE’s website
Physical therapy
Cornell restated that one of the services that makes CORE special is one-on-one treatment with its physical therapists. “There are no aides, and you spend your whole appointment with your physical therapist, incorporating a variety of manual techniques with exercise.” 
Physical therapy services include post-operative care, spine therapy, sports therapy, fall prevention, and dry needling. “PT can play a crucial role in fall prevention by providing balance training and treating vestibular disorders” like vertigo, according to the website. 
Cornell says that, after the age of 30, a typical person can lose 10% of their strength and balance every decade. “Strengthening is incredibly important as we age to maintain activity but also to maintain bone density, prevent falls, and improve balance.
Cornell says “dry needling” is another popular service, noting it is similar to acupuncture in that it uses a similar type of needle inserted into specific points. “Dry needling works in the myofascial system to directly release tightness, knots and triggers points. It can be very helpful to reduce muscle tension, increase circulation, decrease pain, and improve range of motion.”
Pediatric care services
CORE also offers pediatric care services to treat hip dysplasia, toe in/out walking, brachycephaly, fracture, concussion, delayed milestones, and muscle weakness or imbalance. 
“A large concern these days with the pediatric population is plagiocephaly, or ‘flat head syndrome,’” says Cornell. “Oftentimes, this can be exacerbated by torticollis, where the head is tilted or stuck to one side. Chiropractic care can be very helpful to gently correct torticollis which directly impacts plagiocephaly.”
