Dr. Darrick Lawson has been freeing people from pain since 1991: first in his clinic in Visalia, California, and since 2000 in Midtown Sacramento, California.
As a skilled and experienced Chiropractor, he is committed to promoting the health and well being of his patients.
Dr. Lawson uses a 'whole person approach' when taking care of his patients. By combining the very best hands-on-techniques, state of the art physiotherapy procedures, and the newest and best natural vitamins and mineral supplements on the market today, Dr. Lawson is able to help you to accelerate your journey to good health.
In his own words, Dr. Lawson states:
'It has always been my goal to provide a place for healing. I approach chiropractic from the knowledge that every function in your body is under the direct control of your brain and nerve system. All body systems, such as digestion, immunity, circulation, elimination, only occur if the brain sends the appropriate signal.
'When misalignments ('subluxations') of the spine occur, this can block the ability of the brain to communicate to the cells of the body. This pinching of the spinal nerves doesn't always result in pain. Science tells us that only 10% of our body's nerves feel pain. You see, a digestive nerve only digests, it does not feel pain. A nerve for taste only tastes, it doesn't feel pain. Therefore, if your subluxations are putting pressure on the 90% of nerves that do not feel pain, severe health conditions can still be the result of misalignment.
'Simply put, if your brain cannot communicate with the organs and systems of your body, you will not be able to function to your highest potential. This is a tragedy.
'No matter your health condition, it makes sense to insure that you have full nerve flow to each and every cell of your body for optimal health and happiness. We use multiple techniques to accomplish this goal. My chiropractic techniques include diversified hands on adjusting, biophysics correctional adjusting, as well as light and non-force techniques. I hope you will call today for an immediate appointment! The consultation is always FREE!'

Blanche is the mom in our office. Before joining Dr. Lawson’s family, she was the mother of 9 beautiful puppies, and now takes the nurturing role in our pack. If she’s not sleeping, she will be more than happy to cuddle with you, and if she does, you will want to take her home.
Willie is an enormous and goofy Bloodhound who loves his brothers and sisters very much. Don’t leave food unattended, because with the strongest nose of any dog, he will find it. And don’t be alarmed if he barks; Willie gets a little nervous and doesn’t like hats, canes or white beards!
Mickey is Cockapoo and the newest addition to Dr. Lawson’s family, and is a laugh a minute. He enjoys playing fetch with patients, the staff, and you will often find him playing in the hallways with the other members of his family. He takes naps in the most inappropriate places, so watch where you step – it might not be a rug, but Mickey.
Scooter belongs to our office manager Sara. Full of energy and spunk, he's our 'instigator of trouble.' He loves to egg on his fellow staffers to play and will likely be seen stealing all of their toys. But after a morning of play, he will likely fall asleep in the waiting room chair next to you.
