From Dr. Antonio

“We’re told that migraines, headaches, back pain, or other ailments are a normal part of life. We’re told that illnesses and diseases like frequent colds and flus, diabetes, autoimmunities, cancer, ADD and ADHD, and heart disease can only be managed with medicine, sometimes for the rest of our lives.

Im Dr. Antonio Rivera and I’m here to tell you that there’s a better way. When our bodies are allowed to supply proper nerve function through spinal alignment along with proper nutrition, exercise and detoxification we’re able to achieve and maintain optimal health—true health the way we’re created to have. We do not have to be dependent upon medicine to feel “normal” nor do we have to believe that sickness and illness are a normal part of life. As the owner and founder of Life By Design Chiropractic, it’s my mission to help you and your family achieve optimal health and to help educate you and your community that true health, energy, focus and passion is possible. We’re happy to have you as part of the Life By Design Chiropractic family and we cant wait to hear from you.”

Shelly Elizabeth Wheeler - Evans

Chiropractic Assistant

I am a 38-year-old single mother of 3 amazing children. I was born in Southeast Texas and lived there until I was a teen, then moved to Deridder La where I reside today. I proudly served in the United States Army for 3 years and served one tour in Iraq. I have always been a believer in the power of Chiropractic care and have received regular adjustments since I was 16 years old. I felt drawn to pursue a career in the Chiropractic field to help other people find true healing.
