COVID-19 Update - October 14, 2020: 

As always, the health and safety of our patients are our number one priority.  We have been and are continuing to implement extra measures to provide a safe experience for everyone who enters our doors. Following are some protocols that we are strictly following in order to keep you safe while in our office:

  1. Staff and patients are to wear a mask while patients are in the office. If a patient does not have a mask they will be supplied with one.
  2. We now have a parking lot waiting area, so please wait in your car and we will wave you in when we are ready for your appointment. Any necessary paperwork will be brought to your car.
  3. There is frequent cleaning and disinfecting of door handles, tables/countertops, phones, sinks, restroom and other common “high-touch” items in our office. The chiropractic adjustment tables and massage tables are being disinfected after each use.
  4. We are scheduling patients so that we will have a maximum of 3 patients in the office at one time.
  5. We know our patients love our walk-in policy, and it is one of the things that makes our office accommodating and unique, but temporarily we ask that you call before your visit to make an appointment and/or confirm that our office is still open.  If you must walk-in , you may have to  wait in your car for a few minutes while we work you into the schedule.
  6. If you have any symptoms of the Coronavirus such as fever, cough, or sore throat, we ask that you call to reschedule your visit.
  7. Any patient who has had contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19 should reschedule their appointments for AFTER 14 days from the date of that contact.
  8. If you have traveled or have been in contact with someone who has traveled within the last 30 days, please call our office to discuss your circumstances and/or reschedule your appointment.
  9. Any employee experiencing virus symptoms will be asked to stay home and quarantine themselves. Every staff member will have their temperature checked at the beginning of each shift.  

Thank you for your patience as we navigate this new territory and the ever changing information that is coming our way. Remember to support your local businesses in any way possible while still staying safe. THANK YOU!


  • "After having shoulder pain that continued to worsen for over a year I made an appointment with Dr Cantu. After several visits I am happy to say that I am 90% better. Most days are pain free and I thought I would never be able to say that. I was in constant pain and was very concerned that this was going to be my new normal. I am beyond happy that my medical doctor recommended Dr Cantu. Walking through his door was the best decision I made. Thank you Dr Cantu and staff."
    Shawna W., Keswick
  • "Extremely competent! I left feeling so much better and it continued with the prescribed exercises! He exceeds my expectations!"
    Donna L., Gordonsville
  • "Dr. Cantu and staff have been so helpful and have put me back on the road to a better life. Thanks is okay but words do not say how much better I am."
    Carloyn A., Howardsville, VA
  • "Dr. Cantu and his staff is excellent. I had a problem with my lower back and after a few visits, I was finally back to normal. Dr. Cantu understood the whole problem and easily pin pointed how to fix it and get everything back to normal. I was in and out very quickly for every visit. He did everything needed and then some. He's great and so is his staff. I will certainly go back when needed and always recommend his name."
    Chris E., Troy, VA
  • "Dr. Cantu is amazing at what he does. He is always easy to talk to and knows immediately what the problem is. Not only did he solve my back issues but also gave me great advice on how to improve my back by using stretching exercises. I recommend him first as a great practitioner and also as a great chiropractor. If you have back pain you owe it to yourself to go by. When you're in pain you can't wait weeks to get help and I've been able to set appointments within a day or two with no problem, which makes a big difference."
    Steven S., Charlottesville, VA
  • "The Chiropractic Office promptly, effectively, and professionally addressed my chiropractic needs. The doctors and staff are courteous and friendly. If I need chiropractic treatment in the future, I will definitely go there again."
    Terry L., Barboursville, VA
  • "Over the past 10 yrs I have also met and appreciated the skills and knowledge of Dr. Cantu who has looked after me and my family as has Dr. Walker. I have referred many of my patients to the practice because I knew that they would be treated extremely well and never be taken advantage of. I still feel the same about them."
    Dr. Ajgaonkar M.D. (Retired), Charlottesville
  • "The doctors and staff are warm and compassionate. Excellent results after only one visit. I will continue to visit them for all of my chiropractic needs and recommend this business highly!"
    Dr. Sara S., Charlottesville, VA
