Happiness begins with
RECURVE Health Center got its name from the highly revered recurve bow. A proper recurve bow is made by applying pressure to very specific places on the wood producing strong curves on either end. The resulting structure and alignment allow the arrow to fly with unmatched energy and speed.
Our human frame is similar. The body should rest in an ideal position, but stress can compromise our structure leading to limited motion, chronic pain, injury and even organ dysfunction.
Utilizing unique chiropractic methods, we can reshape your body both inside and out. Our mission at RECURVE is to introduce our community to new and exciting ways to heal and thrive. We aim to change how you think about your body's needs, providing achievable healthy, outcomes.
RECURVE your thinking.
Dr. Annalea Wood believes that a piece is missing in current American health care -- the care for the human frame. Along with exercising to stay strong and eating right to feel good, our posture plays a vital role in our health. In this time of staring down at cell phones and sitting at desks, we give little attention to the structural havoc we wreak on our bodies. Dr. Wood is trained in the rehabilitation of the body's structural integrity utilizing chiropractic care to address pain and increase quality of life.
After receiving her Bachelor of Science in human biology, she obtained her doctorate from Life Chiropractic College West in California's Bay Area. She trained in elite post-graduate work: Chiropractic Biophysics®, an evidence-based spinal rehabilitative technique. Before relocating to Oxford, Dr. Wood was the primary treating doctor at Symmetry Health Center, one of the leading specialized CBP® care facilities in California.
Dr. Wood is so excited to be able to offer this unique type of care to her husband's beautiful home-state. Outside of the office they spend most of their time running around after their twin 6 year old boys and hanging with their brand new baby-girl!
Over time, joints may become fixed, thus creating pain and dysfunction in the body. Chiropractic adjustments mobilize and manipulate those joints, relaxing the attached muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Additionally, adjustments can reduce interference that may be taking place at the nerve root, allowing for better organ function. Dr. Wood uses a unique combination of deep muscle work and manual mobilization to administer adjustments, making them effective and enjoyable. There is a wide spectrum of ways to adjust the body, so modifications are easily made for patient preference and comfort.
This specialized service combines the traditional chiropractic care discussed above with an advanced rehabilitative service aimed at addressing the cause of your pain. After an exam and analysis of your spinal x-rays, we will develop a plan for correcting the structural damage and postural decline your body may have suffered. Corrective care takes the commitment that all true change does. RECURVE is currently the only health facility in north Mississippi offering this type of chiropractic program. You owe it to yourself to find out if you are a candidate for Corrective Care.

Dr. Wood will provide a detailed explanation and report, along with the suggested treatment plan.

New Patient Info...
YOUR FIRST VISIT: A typical new patient appointment will last approximately an hour. Upon arrival, you will fill out paperwork and will have an exam with Dr. Wood to discuss the history of your symptoms along with any other pertinent information to your condition. After the exam, Dr. Wood will take a set of digital spinal x-rays which will consist of 6 total images of the spine. You are welcome to get adjusted after the x-rays, if you choose. Occasionally, in more complex cases, Dr. Wood will prefer more time to examine the x-rays prior to treating you. In these cases she may recommend waiting to get adjusted until your next visit.
At a follow-up appointment, Dr. Wood will go over the x-rays with you in great detail, discussing both the health of the bone and the joint, the structure of the spine and how it may relate to your symptoms. At this time she will recommend the treatment plan that will be most beneficial to you.
COST: The cost of the exam, x-rays, and follow-up appointment is $250. If you choose to get adjusted on the day of your new patient appointment, there is an additional $45 fee. These fees are due at the time of service.
INSURANCE: We are not in-network with any insurance carriers, however, if you have
out-of-network chiropractic coverage under your plan (which many plans do) we can provide you with a super-bill that you may submit directly to insurance for re-imbursement.
CANCELLATION POLICY: We request that you give us a 24 hour notice prior to cancellation for any appointment. As of January 2023 we will request that you provide us with a credit card upon booking your new patient appointment.
