I chose to become a chiropractic physician because chiropractic was a natural form of health care and being able to get people well without the use of harmful drugs or surgery appealed to me. I was a Cytotechnologist, which involved evaluating cellular samples for cancer, infectious organisms and other pathologies. After working in hospitals and clinical laboratories, I saw many shortcomings of traditional, allopathic medicine and sought out a profession with a holistic approach. When I began my chiropractic studies, I knew chiropractic could help people with back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other musculoskeletal conditions. As a chiropractic student, I came in contact with chiropractors who spoke of helping people with conditions such as allergies, asthma, high blood pressure, digestive problems, and female problems just to name a few. I have to admit, I was a skeptic although I knew that the nervous system controlled all the other systems in the body. I understood that when a chiropractor adjusts the spine, it affects the nervous system, but I was still skeptical about chiropractic improving any non-musculoskeletal conditions.
In my own practice, however, I have seen the benefits of chiropractic extend beyond the musculoskeletal system. While I only treat the musculoskeletal system, I have had many patients over the years tell me of other conditions which resolved or have improved since they began chiropractic treatment. I’ve had women get pregnant who were unable to get pregnant even after having spent thousands on infertility treatment. I have had patients tell me that their allergies, asthma, high blood pressure, irritable bowel syndrome or digestive problems have “cleared up” since they have been under care. I even had a patient once who told me his sense of smell had returned after having lost it for over 15 years. He said that the only thing different in his life was receiving the gentle chiropractic care I provide.
The miracles of chiropractic continue to amaze me. Of course, most of our patients complain of back and/or neck pain, which can be very debilitating. We take it for granted that we can bend over to put on socks or tie our shoes. Sometimes back pain is so severe that a patient is unable to perform these seemingly simple tasks. Chiropractic has enabled many of my patients to resume activities of daily living or participate in sports that they thought they could never do again. Chiropractic has improved the quality of life for literally thousands of patients before my eyes and has become a more rewarding profession than I ever could have imagined.
I grew up in the Mahoning Valley in the small farm community of Ellsworth, which has since grown. I graduated from Western Reserve High School with honors. My undergraduate studies were completed at the University of Akron where I received my Bachelor of Science degree, cum laude, in Cytotechnology. My clinical training in Exfoliative Cytology was conducted at Akron General Medical Center. After graduation, I worked full-time as a cytotechnolgist at Holzer Clinic in Gallipolis, Ohio and also took courses at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia and the University of Kentucky in Lexington. I received my Doctor of Chiropractic degree, magna cum laude from Life College of Chiropractic, which is now known as Life University and is located in Marietta, Georgia.

I hold a certification in Electrodiagnosis through National University of Health Sciences and have also taken Electromyography and Clinical Neurophysiology through Harvard Medical School. I have been certified as an Advanced Proficiency Rated Activator Methods doctor since 1994, and I am also certified in Impulse Instrument Adjusting. I have earned both Fellow and Diplomate status in acupuncture through the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture. I have completed advanced clinical training in biomechanics and orthotics, and I am certified in sole supports dynamic casting technology. My pilates certification is through Stott Pilates™, an anatomically based system of stretching and strengthening exercises that enhance a patients rehabilitative program.

I like to spend time outdoors and enjoy snow skiing, hiking, kayaking, whitewater rafting, water skiing, and golf. I have one daughter with four legs and a tail. She is a chow chow, and her name is Chablis. She’s not interested in boys, doesn’t want a new car, and never complains about my cooking!
Personally, I receive chiropractic adjustments twice per month, and I exercise three times per week with the Stott Pilates reformer. I only take organically grown, whole food nutritional supplements and try to live a healthy lifestyle.

I just left Carradine Chiropractic and I was blown away. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical and scared. I am 38 years old I have had 3 hip surgeries and have RA. my back has been bothering me for 2 weeks and I have had unbearable pain the last 2 days. I woke up at 5am crying and being so uncomfortable that I wanted to scream (I actually might of a couple times). my daughter drove me to my appointment and was amazed when she seen my legs line up while on the table. There was no twisting, pulling, or cracking. after I stood up I wiggled my hips! did you hear me!? amazing. Now yes I still have some muscle soreness but I was able to walk, shut my own car door (I couldn't do that on my way there), and ride in the car pain free! thank you
I recommend her any time someone needs a chiropractor. She's thorough, to the point, & her technique I've never seen before. I have scoliosis & didn't realize how much of my health it affected & how much pain I've actually "accepted" over the years until my treatment with her was finished. Best chiropractor.
The staff at Carradine chiropractic truly listens to the patient and creates a customized plan of treatment that is gentle but very effective. I would recommend their treatment plans and services to anyone as I have had great results dealing with my severe back and neck pain. The entire staff makes your experience very relaxing and effective and you’re not just another number you are treated like the most important patient and they will do whatever is needed to provide you with the correct and effective services
Dr. Carradine and her staff are WONDERFUL! She is always available for same day appointments, and is flexible around all work schedules. She offers many different types of therapies to help with pain, and they really focused on what works best for each patient& their recovery process. The office is very clean and peaceful. Bedside manner is VERY important to me & my family, and Dr. Carradine and her staff were kind, compassionate, and efficient! It was a great experience.
Dr. Carradine took the time and the effort to explain all of my treatment options before I began. Once I started treatment I found Dr. Carradine to be an extremely knowledgeable, caring and thorough doctor committed to improving my condition. She communicates well and actually listens to what I have to say! The gentle techniques used by Dr. Carradine were different from those that I experienced in the past. Because of this, she explained the reasoning behind everything she did. The results have been amazing! Dr. Carradine"s staff is also excellent. They make you feel very comfortable during treatment, and truly care about your health. They are professionals in every sense of the word. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Carradine to anyone wishing to improve their health.
The staff is excellent and professional. Dr. Carradine's care was clear, straightforward and outstanding, I feel 100%. I was used to a "snap, crack and pop" type of chiropractor. Dr. Carradine's approach is gentle, but gets the job done and is so effective. I highly recommend them.
I have scoliosis and have suffered back pain all of my life. After going to Dr. Carradine, my pain level has been greatly reduced l and have even experienced pain free days! She is very knowledgeable. The office is beautiful with a calming atmosphere. There is never a long wait time and often you can schedule same day appointments. There is no pain during the adjustment and you are in and out in no time! I would and have recommended her to many friends and family.
Overall great experience! I had the best adjustment I’ve ever received and I’ve tried multiple chiropractors over the course of ten years for hip problems due to athletics. The facility is so nice and clean and they had such a kind staff who made my experience that much better. I’ll never go anywhere else!
I recently injured my left knee and needed an early morning appointment. They offered me a 7:30 am appt. which is when they open. However, that wasn't early enough for me because I had to be somewhere else at 8 am that's 45 minutes away. I needed a 7 am appointment, so they opened early just for me! Very accommodating...I've never had a drs office do that for me before.
The office staff is extremely nice & patient. There willing to work with you on scheduling & very understanding !! The office is always clean and they do a great job of getting you in & out. I feel much better after multiple appointments for my back. The chiropractor is really thorough and detailed. I would recommend.
I can not express in words how much better I feel in such a short time. I am a 48 years old athletic female with a torn Meniscus and ACL in my left knee, degenerative damage in my neck and a fracture in my lower back. I came to Dr. Denise Carradine ready to throw in the towel, accept the fact I'm getting older ; my body is breaking down finally (basically I wasn't expecting much). I could barely walk a mile , ride my bike, or bend to garden, After two weeks of Acupuncture and Chiropractic therapy, I feel like I am 20 again. The exercise that I had been doing and getting no results suddenly my body is responding. My appetite has suppressed ,my energy and motivation is back. I feel great. I feel like myself again. I RECOMMEND visiting Denise.
The most efficient medical office I have ever been to. I was being treated two minutes after walking in. The Doctor and assistants were always very caring and friendly.
Dr. Carradine is the best! The staff are very nice and helpful. After suffering with pain for over 9 years I finally have some relief since I've been going here. She is very good at acupuncture and chiropractic care. She's very knowledgeable and helps her patients with a gentle approach. She's thorough as well as listens to her patients and their needs.
