Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind-body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being.
Wellness means much more than just being disease free.

Dr. Russel SherDr. Russel Sher is a 1986 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic and has practiced integrated health care and chiropractic both in South Africa and the United States for over twenty two years.

Why are we different?Asheville Center for Health Excellence strives to provide truly comprehensive “excellent health care” to Asheville and the surrounding areas. The factor that differentiates us is our truly holistic approach: focusing not just on symptoms but also their underlying causes.
We utilize state-of-the–art technology and functional laboratory analysis to identify underlying functional imbalances; advanced health assessment technology to determine lifestyle and dietary factors that warrant attention; and safe, gentle, and effective chiropractic techniques to normalize musculoskeletal and nervous system function.
Typical ConditionsDespite great medical advances, our current healthcare delivery model has a long way to go. Many interventions temporize the problem but have little to offer in addressing underlying root causes. Alternative medicine opens up new solutions. Some conditions typically seen at our Practice include:

|Back pain with sciatica|
|"I have suffered from lower back pain and sciatica secondary to disc disease for years now. I had surgery seven years ago, but the pain returned. Physical therapy and regular exercise helped a bit, but the pain was present every morning and for a good part of each day. It affected my life as a mother of two small children and my work as a veterinarian. My New Year's resolution was to do something about it. A friend had told me about Dr Sher, and I began seeing him several months ago. Even though I had a lifelong wariness about Chiropractic care, Dr. Sher changed that view and he changed my entire life for the better. His care is both gentle and holistic. He treats not only my back pain, but looks at my entire physical and emotional well being. I am now living my life with almost no pain and my quality of life is beautiful. Thank you Dr. Sher for being here in Asheville. I would recommend Dr. Sher to ANYONE living with pain."
