The Symptoms We Help Patients Relieve


Pain is the body’s
warning system

Pain and other symptoms are nature’s way of telling us something is wrong. They are often the result of your body dealing with tissue damage or breakdown, infection, or toxins.

By diagnosing and treating the underlying conditions, we can help you relieve the symptoms you’re experiencing day-to-day.

Below are a few of the most common symptoms/pain we help relieve.










Headaches & Migraines

What Our Patients Say

I have been to many chiropractors over the years, and Dr. Stark is by far the best. His adjustments are gentle, yet effective. Dr. Stark and the staff are friendly and welcoming. Also, it is easy for me to pop in at a moment’s notice, and their office’s flexibility works with my schedule.
— Veronica Kwiatkowski
I had always been afraid to go to a chiropractor. But after throwing my back out many times and just resting it to try to heal, I decided to try Dr. Stark at the suggestion of a friend. I am so glad I did! He is very gentle with the adjustments and explains what he is doing. He showed me exercises to strengthen my back, which I do on a regular basis, and they have really helped. I have also experienced the laser treatment when I had problems with my knee and when I rolled my ankle. The laser treatment is amazing and helped my injuries heal much faster. The entire staff at Brandon Chiropractic is very friendly and professional, and I feel very fortunate to have them in our community!
— Robin Loughlin
I can’t say enough good things about Dr Stark and his staff. Walking into the office is like coming into a friends house, always welcoming. After my Dr sent me to several specialists including neurologist and having extensive MRIs for neck pain and vertigo and telling me there was nothing they could do, I decided to try chiropractic care. Within the first two visits I started to feel better. It’s been four years and I haven’t had vertigo problems or near the pain in my neck. I always feel like I stand taller when I leave his office.
— Susan Seffens
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Stark for several years. I have had other Chiropractors but, Dr. Stark is by far the best. The staff in the office are welcoming, friendly and above all really good people, even Dr. Stark :) . You could not be in better hands (no pun intended).
— Scott Williamson
I can’t say enough about Brandon Chiropractic! From the adjustment, to massage to treatments and customer service! Their services have absolutely made a positive impact on our health and we couldn’t be happier. Highly recommended!
— Ashley Birmingham
Dr. Stark and his staff are amazing! I cannot say enough good things about him! I have been going to him periodically since their first year in 1997 and will never change! He is very professional yet still feels practically like family.

He cares for your whole wellbeing, not just your spine. In fact he ended up being the doctor that discovered my mom’s cancer had spread to her bones! What other chiropractor would do that? AND he then even attended her funeral! Our family will never forget that.

Additionally, his office is extremely flexible with appointments and can often get you in that same day, especially if you’re hurting.
— Shereen Martus
The absolute best in Chiropractic care!
I have recommended and will continue to recommend people to Dr. Stark. Wally and I have been patients for 20+ years and will continue to be until Doc retires
— Julie Wright

Who We Are


At Brandon Chiropractic Center, we want you to feel at home with our office. Below you'll find information about Dr. Stark and the rest of our staff. They offer the real-world experience and knowledge you expect from an effective chiropractic practice along with a caring, responsive attitude that will put you at ease.


  • 23 years experience as a practicing chiropractor

  • 22 years in Ortonville

  • Graduated Cum Laude, D.C. Palmer College of Chiropractic

  • Member of the Michigan Association of Chiropractors

  • Continuing education classes taken annually

  • Played professional hockey, was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in 1986 and played for the Flint Spirits of the I.H.L. in 1989

I became a chiropractor because of my own personal experiences. My mother started taking me to a chiropractor at the age of 12. Throughout my hockey career, I had many injuries, and teams back then did not have team chiropractors.

Thankfully because of my experience with chiropractic when I was young, I knew to seek chiropractic care on my own (Thanks Mom!). If I had not, my career would have been over. Chiropractic care was the key to keeping me going.

I utilize in my practice today many of the things I learned back then. I understand the importance of all forms of health care, and do not hesitate to refer people to other health care providers when needed. The main goal of our office is to help people get their quality of life back and excel in all they do.

Chiropractic care changed my life.

We provide a caring, professional environment to help as many people as possible change their lives, too.
