Midwest Chiropractic History
During the fall of 1994 Dr. Stephen J. Gallagher walked the Hickory Hills neighborhood while his office was being constructed. He wrote 1400 personal letters and left 5000 door hangers announcing the opening of Midwest Chiropractic Care Center. Many massage therapists, exercise physiologists and chiropractic assistants have been employed over the years but Dr. Gallagher has been the only chiropractic physician. A patient seen for low back pain in 1994 would be seen by the same doctor in 2012. Dr. Gallagher has seen over 4800 different patients for work injuries, car accidents and just general aches and pains. Many people have been receiving monthly chiropractic care for over ten years. Dr. Gallagher is married with five children aged 15 to 3 years and plans on providing pain relief for the Hickory Hills area for many years to come.
