Welcome to Hoard Chiropractic Clinic
The office will be closed the following days for Thanksgiving:
Thursday, November 26, 2020
Friday, November 27, 2020
Dr. Martens will be open for her regular hours on Saturday November 28, 2020. Dr. Hoard and Dr. Kelly Lester will be back in the office on Monday, November 30, 2020.
We are offering online appointment scheduling. We are also working out some kinks with this system, and we appreciate your patience during this time. One thing that we are hearing is a question on which account to book your appointment (there can be several choices-depending on which doctor you want to schedule, your insurance type, and massage therapy account). All of Dr. Martens accounts will have a “DM” next to the account name. If there is not a “DM” then you would be scheduled with Dr. Hoard, Dr. Kelly, or Dawn (for massage). We hope this will get easier with the updates that are soon to be released.
Here is the link to set-up online appointments, if interested:
If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call our office.
We are currently trying a new online appointment scheduling. Click the link below to begin the process of enrolling for this service.
If you are a new patient and are interested in being seen by one of our doctors, please give our office a call at 269-685-5486 so we can schedule your first initial appointment.
Limited walk-ins available again!
We will see walk-in patients again, but we currently have patients with appointments that we will honor their scheduled time as close as we can. We will do our best to accommodate walk-in patients throughout the day, but there may be times that we cannot provide care due to scheduled patients. Dr. Hoard and Dr. Kelly Lester are available on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Dr. Martens is available on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. If you would like to contact the office prior to arrival, the staff can assist you in finding an available time frame.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we move forward to providing chiropractic care for everyone's health needs.
Yours in good health,
Hoard Chiropractic Clinic

Hoard Chiropractic Clinic COVID-19 office protocols:
Our office will be open our regular hours during this time. Appointments can be made by calling our office. We will still accept walk-in patients. While we feel this virus is important to pay attention to, we also think that it should not consume your life. If you let fear take hold, you could allow your own immune system to be compromised. Take precautions and take care of you and your family.
Our office can be reached at (269) 685-5486. If you call, and are directed to our voicemail, please listen through the message to see if there has been any changes in our office hours and/or procedures and leave a message for us to return your call.
Yes, we want to adjust every patient to boost their immune system. If you are experiencing the following symptoms, please contact our office before coming in to determine if we can see you or direct you to another health care provider:
body aches, fever, cough, shortness of breath
We would recommend that to help with your immune system, you would keep hydrated, eat healthy foods, get outside and get your rest. Reduce your stress, as that weakens the immune system. If you are forced into taking time off, rest and enjoy spending time with your family.
Updates to any changes will be sent via email, Facebook, and recorded on our voicemail. If you have any questions for Dr. Martens or Dr. Hoard, you may email us at the following:
Yours In Good Health,

Wednesday and Friday hours are 9:15 am, 2:15 pm, 3:15 pm, 4:15 pm, 5:15 pm, and 6:15 pm as of March, 2018.

All new patients are scheduled with our regular rates, then you may schedule an appointment after confirming with Dr. Hoard that you are eligible for the cash practice appointments.
Please call our office at (269) 685-5486 to set up your appointment. We look forward to expanding the opportunity to continue to improve your health with affordable chiropractic care. I hope this will encourage you to take charge of your health, as we attempt to make chiropractic healthcare more affordable. As you use chiropractic as your primary health option, you allow your body to work and play at a higher level. Reducing injury and optimizing overall health are the benefits of consistent chiropractic care. Just like getting your teeth checked by the dentist or the oil in your vehicle changed by a mechanic, regular spinal checks by your chiropractor keep your spine and nervous systems stronger and operating “on all cylinders”.
I look forward to serving you as we revisit the good ole days of just taking care of you without wondering what your insurance company has to say about your healthcare. Thank you for the possibility to branch out and start a new chapter in our clinic that I feel will focus more on you and your health. If this does sound like the care you wish, but are unable to make the current time slot that I have set up now, call me at (269) 685-5486 and I will make additional appointment times available as the need arises to take advantage of this arrangement.
Yours in Good Health,

Welcome to the Hoard Chiropractic Clinic website. We look forward in assisting you to restore optimum health through chiropractic care.
Chiropractic has been shown to improve the following:
- Headaches and migraines
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Back and neck pain
- Sports injuries and rehabilitation
- TMJ syndrome
- Women's health issues
- Child health issues
If you have any questions regarding any of these issues please feel free to contact the office. The initial visit is by appointment only and requires half hour to hour of time to include exam, x-rays, and adjustments. No appointment is necessary for established patients of our office, as we are a walk-in clinic.
There are two chiropractors in our office Christina K. Hoard, D.C. and Dian K. Martens, D.C.
We would invite you to browse our website for valuable information about chiropractic and the benefits that spinal adjustments can offer you. We also look forward to meeting and caring for your spinal health needs. Seeing you perform at your greatest potential is what we enjoy helping you achieve.
Chiropractic is a safe, drug-free healthcare choice. The chiropractor performs a spinal exam to locate vertebral subluxations. A subluxation is the misalignment of a vertebra impinging upon a nerve. Spinal adjustments are performed to release nerve pressure and allow the body to work at its greatest potential. Subluxations can occur at any age from various stressors. Adjustments are safe for individuals of all ages.
"Observational study found that low back pain patients receiving chiropractic care, which typically includes spinal manipulation, are more satisfied than those receiving medical care."
