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.

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:
Headache | Neck Pain | Whiplash | Lower Back Pain | Scoliosis
Sports Injuries | Hormone Imbalances | Gastrointestinal Disorders

|Low back pain|
|After a terrible accident in the early 90's I would have lower back pain flair-ups from time to time. Over the years I saw various chiropractors to "fix" my pain. Often I noticed that they would ask a few questions and then start what seemed to be a "crack it up" session from head to toe (probably what they do on everyone). Luckily, I found Dr. Sher, he spent a large portion of the appointment asking questions, watching me walk and putting heat on my back. The adjustment was done gently and the pressure applied to exactly the spot where the pain originated. Problem solved! Seriously, I've had very little to no pain since. Not to mention my kids were with me during the appointment and he took it in stride. Thanks to Dr. Sher's actual care for MY pain (rather than the cookie cutter approach) I'm pain free.
