Jakey ``Bear`` The ChiroDog
Jake is our office dog! He is the most friendly pooch you may ever meet. You can usually find him in the office following patient around and making sure they are doing well! He likes to lay around near our practice members as they are being treated and performing their corrective exercises. He is an unpaid employee, but he does accept treats if you feel so inclined to bring some for him!

Chad Rush: Nashville’s Sports Chiropractic Physician
If you are anything like me, you might have been told to stay away from chiropractors, but let me be the first to tell you that Rush Chiropractic Center is completely different. Dr. Rush not only does the traditional adjustments, he also incorporates a wide variety of physical therapy exercises that compliment what he is doing to further your recovery. I began seeing Dr. Rush after a hit and run car accident and I was in an extreme amount of pain and my mobility was limited. He took the time to do XRAYs to be sure he was proceeding with proper treatments, and he also took the time to sit down and explain his process that deals with the pain, then moves on to strengthening to help prevent further injury. I am now out of the majority of my pain and able to get back to my normal activities. I was also taught proper ways to brace and protect myself in everyday life when I sit down, stand up, etc. so I can protect my body as it heals. I am still continuing treatment and working to strengthen my core with the exercises he has instructed me to do at home. If you are weary about a chiropractor, I encourage you to get a consultation here and just look into it. My results have been phenomenal so far and my quality of life is improving greatly. If you are still not convinced, just swing by and meet their dog, Jake. He is sweet and loves to sit next to you as you are getting adjusted.
I am so grateful for Rush Chiropractic Center! I can finally run, squat and lift again without constant hip pain, and I’m back to my normal exercise routine!! Ah, exciting! Dr. Rush custom designed a program for my injuries and took the time to teach me proper movement patterns. I was surprised with how much time each appointment was – not your typical factory style clinic. Overall, great experience and I highly recommend for everyone – especially for athletes wanting to stay consistent!
Chad Rush helped me get back on my feet and moving properly twice now (half-marathons and wrestling with my 18 year old son is on me). His Green Hills office is easy to find and the flexible scheduling was much appreciated. I highly recommend this office.
Dr. Rush and Nikki (and Jake) are amazing!! Everytime I’m in Nashville, I go see Dr. Rush so he can work his magic on my back. They are super accommodating and go out of their to make sure I can make it to see them. His adjustments are the best I’ve had and every time I leave with my back feeling better. Thank you!
A couple months ago, I came to Rush Chiropractic Center with constant upper back and neck pain. Nowadays, I can honestly say that my pain is all but gone and that my overall quality of life has improved. It’s clear to me that Dr. Rush has a true passion for helping people with the knowledge he has acquired. I see nothing but a bright future ahead for Chad and his team!
Dr. rush is an amazing chiropractor!! His adjustments are THE BEST compared to every other chiropractor I’ve had. He sincerely takes his time listening to me each time I come in for a visit, and his adjustments are thorough and focused on helping my body feel better each and every time. His staff is also very warm and welcoming. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a chiropractor in the Nashville area!
