Dr. John R. Acord, Jr. is originally from Greenville, MS. After graduating from Washington School, he earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Delta State University with a major in biology and a minor in chemistry. He then went on to complete the Doctor of Chiropractic program from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, TX.
Now in his fourteenth year of serving Purvis and the surrounding areas, Dr. Acord has always been committed to providing the newest, most effective, QUALITY chiropractic care, all in a small town environment. His goal from the outset was to provide excellent care equivalent to what can be found in a large metropolitan area to the people of our area. His patients really seem to enjoy the atmosphere and the knowledgeable, friendly staff. This commitment continues as he now offers cutting edge treatment for those who suffer from neuropathy.
In clinical practice, Dr. Acord has always been amazed at the power of chiropractic and the healing capacity of the human body. The nervous system controls everything in the body. This intact communication system is vital for health. This is chiropractic! Sometimes the nerves become so badly damaged that they can’t properly transmit signals. This is neuropathy! The traditional medical options have proven very limited for neuropathy patients. Permanent disability, pain and no quality of life become the new normal for these patients. Dr Acord seeks to help those who had no GOOD options in the past.
Now Dr. Acord is very excited to offer help and hope to these people who find themselves in such a difficult situation. We aim not only to decrease pain, but also to increase function of the damaged nerves in order to give your life back!
