For people seeking better health, We are a health care team that specializes in correcting core problems with the spine and nervous system. We will help you get to the root of your health problems and how to avoid recreating them in the future. We are not a traditional chiropractic office that focuses on temporarily reducing pain. Our focus is called Neuro-Structural Restoration™. We believe YOU and YOUR FAMILY were designed to be extraordinary and meant to live at your optimal potential.
The human body is designed to be self-regulating and self-healing. The part of the body that is responsible for healing is your nervous system, which is protected by your spine. When your spine misaligns it interferes with the messages being sent from the brain to the body. Our office is focused on one thing and one thing only, removing this interference. Chiropractic isn’t about fixing neck pain, back pain, and headaches. By means of a specific chiropractic adjustment, Chiropractors relieve stress on the nervous system. It’s not FEEL GOOD it’s BE GOOD.

Dr. Derek Prado
Dr. Derek Prado believes chiropractic care is a logical choice for a long and healthy life. He educates his patients that one’s own body is able to heal itself via proper communication with the brain.
Dr. Prado has lived in Belvidere since he was 8 years old and is proud to serve the community he grew up in. He is a graduate of Belvidere High School (BHS) and Rock Valley College. He received his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2013 from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA.
Dr. Prado is active locally and abroad. He participates in the BHS Alumni Band, the Rock Valley Concert Band, the Knights of Columbus and is on the Board of Directors for Boone County Court Appointed Special Advocates – For Children (CASA). He is an active alumnus of the Delta Delta Pi Professional Chiropractic Fraternity and makes it a point to attend each graduation to welcome his brothers and sisters into the profession. He is the team chiropractor for the Belvidere Tornados Cross Country team and attends their fundraising 5k yearly to provide adjustments for participants in Belvidere and the surrounding communities.
Dr. Prado has also been to Fiji three times since 2012 with Peak Potential Outreach. They provide basic health and chiropractic care to students, family and teachers of local and rural schools. So far, the group has cared for over 3000 patients, and have sponsored a few to get life saving/changing surgeries at the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Hawaii.
Office Assistant & Tech Coordinator
Hi, I’m Adriana! I have a wonderful husband Tyler. Together we are doing our best to live an extraordinary life! Also living a life by design style, I have learned just how much more I could do for my health. I love working with such a great team and having the opportunity to learn more and get to watch and help others grow in their health. When I’m not assisting others, I’m spending time with my mom.
