Discover Chiropractic: The Best Prescription for Health

 Dr. RichHi, I’m Dr. Rich Margil. I am a Chiropractor in Needham, Massachusetts and I’ve been a chiropractic patient myself for 20 years. My purpose is to adjust and educate as many families in my lifetime towards optimal health through natural Chiropractic care. I consider myself a coach in my practice. I help children, teenagers, and adults of all ages move towards a healthier and more vibrant life and lifestyle. Let me be your Chiropractic coach on the Web, as I guide you through the art, science and philosophy of Chiropractic.

Unique to Chiropractic is a vocabulary that is exclusive. In the Glossary of Terms I have expanded on these concepts to familiarize you with the language chiropractors speak. For now, begin to understand there are three (3) main terms that distinguish us from other allied health professions:

1. Chiropractic, 2. Subluxation, 3. Spinal Adjustment.

Why is it that people are often pessimistic about chiropractic care? The medical profession hasn't always supported us, nor have they understood us. Most medical doctors have never been adjusted by a Chiropractor or educated about the philosophy, science and art of chiropractic. It may seem easier to think we can treat the symptoms of a headache, ear infection, arthritis, or neck pain with a drug. However, these symptoms are a clue, a the warning lights turning on in your car. stop signAs a patient, you need to listen to the signals your body gives you. These symptoms your body expresses are not mistakes or the problem. A symptom is one type of signal expressing itself to awaken you to some type of change that needs to happen somewhere inside of you. My job is to search for the subluxations and correct the cause of the symptom before degeneration and further breakdown occurs. When subluxations are reduced or corrected the power of life is turned on automatically. Can you imagine how relieved you would feel if you could get to the CAUSE of your problems?

"An optimal spine equals optimal health."

Back in 1895, the founder of Chiropractic wrote that mental, emotional and chemical stresses as well as physical trauma ie. (car accidents, slips and falls) create disturbances in our nervous system affecting our fullest potential for health. This premise takes into account that our central nervous system, comprised of our brain and spinal cord, acts as the intelligence line of our body. (Information travels along and through the spinal cord.) When this intelligence line is adversely affected, the body's ability to heal itself is in jeopardy. Then we need help. The help a Chiropractor gives is to locate and correct the areas of spinal misalignment. Correcting these misalignments begins first with looking at your posture and how you stand in relation to gravity. In a healthy spinal system the life force moves uninterrupted throughout the body from above-down, inside-out.

Chiropractic has a huge impact helping people regain their health as well as maintaining it once they've gotten it. Whether they're 3 years old or 83 they have a story to tell me.....patient's of all ages

"I always thought having lower back pain while doing situps was normal. Also for years, I would lie on my back in bed and feel the aching and thought it was typical end of the day type of sensation. I noticed after two weeks of chiropractic adjustments that I could now lie on my back and sleep on my back without pain or thinking I was going to hurt soon. I can remember this pain throughout my pregancy's as well . Now I'm thinking if I had started chiropractic when I was pregnant, I would have had an easier pregnancy."

Chiropractic is one of the cornerstones of my health & wellness programs. It has allowed me to be in better shape at 45 than I was at 25. Thank you Dr. Margil

I have been coming to Margil Family Chiropractic for 4 months. Originally I came in for three reasons. I had terrible posture, a headache that wouldn't quit, and I had this dowager's hump and this was pushing my head forward. When a friend first suggested I go to a Chiropractor I was totally against it. I am really glad I changed my mind. After the first adjustment my headache was gone and I haven't had one since. My posture is improving and the dowager's hump has gone away almost completely. I'm standing up straighter. This has been an amazing experience for me. Physically and emotionally the adjustments I have been receiving are the best thing I have done for myself.


As a practicing chiropractor, I am continually amazed at the power of the body's ability to heal itself naturally without drugs or surgery. This method is cost effective. One year of wellness care costs about the same as a one week stay in the hospital. Regular chiropractic adjustments promote healing better as well as feeling better. For some people including myself, regular adjustments means having our spines checked for subluxations on a weekly basis. For some it's biweekly or monthly. Chiropractic care benefits everyone because the principle and practice works. Chiropractic enhances your human potential for optimal health. Get your spine checked for subluxations today!
