Healing Begins at Athena Chiropractic

At Athena Chiropractic, located in Wilmington, our team of health care professionals are dedicated to providing patients with exceptional wellness and pain treatment. It’s commonly known that chiropractors treat patients who are suffering with back or neck pain. We also treat patients who suffer from headaches, tendinitis, nerve pain, and more. Most of our patients find relief after a single spinal adjustment, though some conditions require more attention.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic treatment uses a natural approach to whole body wellness. We focus on the structure of the spine. The spine is a complex arrangement of bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. When the bones along the spine become misaligned, other parts of the spine can be affected as well. There are several types of problems that can arise as the result of spinal misalignment. When the bones along the spine are misaligned, they place pressure on the surrounding structures, which causes pain, headaches, sciatica, and other forms of dysfunction.

Chiropractic Treatment

We use several different treatment modalities at Athena Chiropractic:

Spinal Adjustments: Manual therapies are the hallmark of many chiropractors, including ours. These tried and true techniques are used to eliminate spinal misalignments that cause problems throughout the body.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS): We apply TENS treatment to localized areas of pain. This treatment involves the use of electrodes placed against the skin, sending low-level electrical impulses to targeted areas. TENS helps soothe muscle and nerve pain. It also helps loosen and relax soft tissue prior to spinal adjustment.

The Activator Method: This is another form of treatment our chiropractor uses. This pain-free treatment uses a small hand-held, spring-loaded device that applies pressure to targeted areas that may be the source of pain.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "When I began coming to Athena Chiropractic, I was in severe pain. Now I have minimal pain. The supplements have made a difference as well with my well-being. Besides helping with all my pain, Karen gives great advice and has good recommendations for other specialists that can help with my well-being or other problems. I love all the staff, they always make you feel comfortable and are happy to see you!"
    Jennifer M Wilmington, DE
  • "After struggling with auto-immune symptoms for two years (exhaustion, sore throat, gastro issues, etc), I discovered incredible joy and hopefulness when I met with Dr. Karen for the first time. Comprehensive and thorough, she took the time to really listen and assess while being immensely supportive and informative. Suddenly, I wasn’t alone, and that was the beginning of my healing! Functional medicine was new to me, but I learned that Dr. Karen was a true partner in my health-very empowering!"
    Marilyn M Chichester, PA
  • "I’ve had chronic back pain for almost twenty years. I always feel better when I consistently receive chiropractic care at Dr. Feeney’s office. Dr. Feeney will work with you to help improve your health overall, as well as the chiropractic care that she provides. In addition, I appreciate that the office is family friendly, provides toys and activities on the days when it’s necessary to bring your children in."
    Nicole O Wilmington, DE
  • "The holistic and whole-body approach to evaluation and treatment have helped resolve health issues I have been dealing with for a long time. I have more energy, less pain, and have finally been able to start running again. I’ve never had a healthcare provider listen like Dr. Karen Feeney. It was so nice to have someone take the time to listen."
    Brianne S Wilmington, DE

    Doris Wilmington, DE
  • "The care that I’ve received from Dr. Karen Feeney throughout the years has given me a quality of life I never expected to have. I have some health issues that give me chronic pain. Because of Dr. Karen’s focus on overall health I am able to work and play without experiencing serious pain. Dr Karen has given me a better quality of life. I can talk to Dr. Karen about anything!"
    Amy L. Wilmington, DE
  • "I get regular adjustments which keeps my spine healthy. Dr. Karen explains and suggests the correct vitamins to help with my conditions. I feel that my concerns are addressed and I am part of the treatments. Dr. Karen Feeney is a very caring person. She treats all of my children, their spuses and now some of my grandchildren. She doesn’t just read our charts. She treats all of us as individuals but can also see familial problems. This helps us get the most from our treatments. Chiropractic treats the whole being. I tell my family and friends that they can be healthy and feel great without drugs. By choosing Chiropractic you are choosing a lifestyle that is natural."
    Bernadette A. Wilmington, DE
  • "Dr. Karen Feeney has remained consistently dedicated to helping find the origins of my pain and discomfort so that I have been able to reduce what (pain) I can and better manage what (pain) I cannot. I appreciate her holistic approach to treatment and respect for my experience. I am most impressed by Dr. Feeney’s consistent care and respect for the symptoms that I have experienced as well as her dedication to finding solutions. Why wouldn’t you use every resource available to you? Chiropractic care and Functional Medicine are holistic approaches that utilize less invasive approach that just makes sense."
    Megan D. Wilmington, DE
  • "I had experienced back and neck pain for years. Dr. Feeney has certainly made a huge difference in the pain management. Dr. Feeney has a vast knowledge of nutrition, fitness and the body. She has made a huge difference in my approach to exercise and diet. I love it here! Whenever someone tells me about back or neck pain, I certainly recommend Chiropractic Care."
    Tony C., Wilmington DE
  • "My neck and back were in spasms and I was in a great deal of pain. I suffered for over a year. I was given muscle relaxers and pain killers. It kept me from working and playing with my children. Within two adjustments my pain went away. I know now that if I do something and my back starts to hurts that Dr. Feeney will fix it. I do not have to take pain killers."
