The staff of Valley Spinal Care are on the cutting edge of health care with extensive education, clinical success and a friendly hands-on approach. Not all Scottsdale chiropractors are the same, We work as a team giving patients exactly the tools and guidance they need to get well in a relaxing, safe atmosphere.

It is our clinical intention to equally address muscular imbalance, spinal misalignment, nutritional deficiency, toxicity, stress and lifestyle choices so that patients have ALL the BEST non-surgical, non-drug treatment options needed to get well and live optimally. Not everyone needs to come in frequently, Our doctors will discuss all of your options at your first initial visit. Some of our most rewarding cases involve:


We have entirely too many people in our community suffering from headaches then need to be. Most often headaches are simply caused by a nerve irritation that starts in the neck. I have had countless patients have 100% relief from headaches they have suffered from for years. If you are having headaches (especially headaches that originate in the upper neck), please let us take a look. There’s a good chance they can be reduced, or in many cases completely eliminated.

Neck Pain

The root cause of neck pain often follows a nerve irritation which originates in the cervical spine. Lack of motion or structural abnormalities can cause the nerves to be irritated daily, which results in pain. In instances where function or structure are the root cause, relief is not only possible, but probable.

Low Back Pain

Posture, posture, posture. Improve your posture, and decrease the back pain. It’s really that simple! Improving the structure of the spine will improve function of the nervous system and decrease the low back pain caused by improper posture. Dr. Josh, Dr. Justin, and Dr. Mike use the Gonstead Method which is a unique, scientific approach to chiropractic care which focuses on improving a patient’s spinal alignment and posture. Don’t let low back pain get in the way of your life, call our office today!

The sooner you take action, the sooner we may be able to help you. Contact Valley Spinal Care and get started today!

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal bio-mechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:


Activator Methods®

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust. read more»


After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints. read more»


This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results. read more»


Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine. read more»

If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let us know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.

As an experienced Scottsdale chiropractor, Dr. Pierce D.C. is committed to patient education and understanding.

Back and leg pains

I thought that back and leg pains was just wear and tear of daily life on my body. I never thought that I needed a chiropractor. Since coming to Valley Spinal Care, I have a whole new body and prospective. I really appreciate the care I and my mother have received. Thank you!

Edith Ann H.
My hip area for 5 years since my last 1/2 marathon

I have been treated for this injury 2-3 times a week for 5 years and knew that I was now able to run 13.1 miles again. While I was training, I kept weekly appointments. I recovered instantly after the race. The next day, I played 18 holes of golf and started running again by the next week.

Never give up 🙂

Patricia B.
My neck and upper back gave me pains that I dismissed treated with medicine, and that I consider normal.

Ever since I started my adjustments, I have noticed major improvements. The headaches that I experienced a couple times a week (or more) have ceased. The pain I dealt with every day in my neck and upper back has remarkably improved. I rarely experience pain or discomfort. On top of all that, my stress has gone away. I am almost stress-free which has majorly affected my moods and emotional health. All in all, my life has improved immensely.

Thank you Dr. Justin D.C., Jessica and all of the amazing staff! 🙂

Hannah W.
Right shoulder pain for 6 months

After almost 3 months, the pain and soreness are almost gone! I was very skeptical at first but now I’m convinced that chiropractic manipulation works wonders. I actually feel like I’ll be back to normal very shortly.

The staff are very friendly, cheerful and helpful. A very caring bunch of people.

Denise V.W.
Allergies and lower/upper back pain

In the first 5+ weeks, I have noticed my allergies reduced and my quality of sleep improving. I feel my breathing and energy level have also increased. My golf game has been improving with the increase of stretching and treatments.

Kevin L.
Consistent back, neck, and shoulder pain from work and mountain biking.

VCS adjustments have improved my overall posture and balance. Also, my pain that I encounter daily is almost completely gone. The crew is always willing to listen to my injury report after biking on weekends and adjust accordingly. Great place for spinal care and a wonderful outgoing staff!

Brian L.
My son Micah was a delayed walker. He was 16 mos. and still not walking. He also had an abnormal crawl.

We brought Micah in for about 12 visits. After just the first 3 adjustments, he was taking his first steps! Now, he is running! He is not interested in crawling at all! We are very happy with the results.

Laura S.
Migraines, neck & back pain and moderately high blood pressure

My migraines are now very infrequent. In addition, my blood pressure dropped not only back to the “normal range” but actually to the lower end of normal without any medication or other changes besides Chiropractic Care.

Valley Spinal Care is a very fun place to visit! The people here care about making me better which makes me more dedicated to my appointments.

I now bring my daughter & mom too!

Leah K.
I had 10 years of migraines

I had been getting migraines – first triggered by tennis, then every day. I went the drug route for a while, but they eventually stopped working. So I tried treatments with AZ Pain Centers and Valley Spinal care Center. Within 17 days the migraines stopped, even when I play tennis. To say I have my life back is no understatement. I’m off drugs and pain free. Many people will tell you these treatments don’t work. DO NOT LISTEN! You have nothing to lose but your pain.

Thanks a million to Josh & his terrific staff!
