Incredible Experience, Every Time!
I've been a patient here for years now, and Dr McLelland and his staff have never failed to exceed my expectations. They run the office like a well oiled machine. They do an excellent job of making you feel cared about, remembering the little things about you and making it so easy to schedule. They also make sure you are educated about your own spine health, and how to take care of it long term as well. If you are looking for a great chiropractor, Dr McLelland is the man!

Chiropractic Excellence
If you want to experience Chiropractic excellence, I highly recommend Dr. McLelland! I found that his hands-on treatment is very effective and completely tailored to my body's changing needs on each visit. This has resulted in a wonderful and significant decrease in my back and knee pain in just a few visits! Plus, he provides a system of easy home exercises along with a wealth of short educational videos to progressively maintain spinal health. The staff are both personable and professional. I never waited more than a few seconds to begin my treatments. Dr. McLelland is probably the most well-organized Chiropractor I have seen, among many. His sincerity, thoroughness and genuine interest in helping me accomplish my health goals makes him my long-term choice for a real partner in health.

I have been seeing Dr. Jay for over 12 years and he has kept me pain free from a recurring pinched nerve by going once a month for maintenance. The office provides excellent customer service, and do anything they can to accommodate your schedule.

I love going to Chiropractic Centers of Short Pump! The doctors are committed to helping you feel better and teaching you about your spine and how to take care of it better. Dr. McLelland is very professional and great at what he does. Everyone at the front desk is very personable and helpful - they always work with you if you have schedule conflicts and are always fun to talk with! The office hours are really convenient - they have time slots in the morning and later in the day so you can work around work schedules. I’m very grateful I decided to go to Chiropractic Centers of Short Pump!

Dr McLelland and the office staff are terrific. Very efficient, no wait, and great smiles to start the appointment. The benefit for my back and neck both in the office and the “at home exercises” they send via email have been so helpful. Have and will continue to recommend Dr McLelland!

After two years of chronic back pain, physical therapy and injections, my spine doctor referred me to Dr. McLelland. My only regret is I didn’t go to him sooner. After two months of visits, my pain level has decreased dramatically. I’m able to sneeze, sleep, sit, bend over and walk with little to no pain. I am so impressed by the well oiled machine they have in place there. I never have to wait to be seen and I’m always greeted by sweet Ashley as soon as I walk in the door. I will continue to go there to ensure the continued health of my spine. If you have thought about seeing a chiropractor, just go and go to Dr. McLelland as soon as possible so you can get relief.

I struggled with lower back pain for several months. I went to my primary care, did a month of PT but was not getting better. Then I scheduled an appointment with Dr. McLelland. I felt better within a week and back to normal within a few weeks!

Dr. McLelland is very knowledgeable and also takes the time to give you the same context so you can take your treatment into your own hands. I love that he gives you exercises to do on your own to strengthen your spine and he holds you accountable to! If you want someone involved in your treatment and to hold you accountable, Dr. McLelland is your guy!
