About

Dr. Christopher Hyde is a Chiropractor practicing in Indianapolis, IN. Dr. Hyde specializes in looking at the human body from a global perspective. Neck pain might be caused by the neck yes, but it quite often originates in the feet. The entire body has unique connections such as that one. My job is to look at the body like it is a puzzle and every puzzle is slightly different. One thing every presentation has in common is the fact the every puzzle has many missing pieces. In order to get the big picture it is up to me to find the missing pieces and solve the problem. Treating the entire skeleton as well as the tissue that connects the skeleton makes for better results and longer lasting care. The healthy body is more than a healthy spine, we can't ignore all the joint in our extremeties. We all have shoulders, elbows, wrist and hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet that occasionally give us problems. We must evaluate everything everytime, that's how we find puzzle pieces!

  • Why Are Custom Orthotics Important?

    When I tell patients that they need custom orthotics in order to return function to 100% of its potential, I am usually met with a blank stare! That's OK. I know that signals to me they don't know what to ask, so I am writing this to help you understand the role of the foot and how a custom orthotic...

  • How Do You Get Arthritis In Your Neck?

    Did you know that degenerative arthritis has nothing to do with age? It has a direct relation to time. By that, I want you to think about posture. Our bodies have a certain posture we are supposed to maintain. When we lose that normal posture due to slips and falls, auto accidents, sports injuries...

  • Can a chiropractor adjust your hips?

    I have been in practice for over 20 years. My specialty in in extremity work and athletes. I adjust hips on a daily basis. Look for references because not every Chiropractor can do it! READ MORE

  • Is a massage or chiropractor better for sciatica?

    Very simply, massage MIGHT help with the symptoms, but chiropractic helps with the cause. READ MORE

  • How often should I go to the chiropractor?

    There are no rules about Frequency. Your condition determines that. Some need more such as in the case of trauma (auto accident, sport injury, etc.). The degree of trauma is also a variable. Wellness care can be determined by the amount of stress in you. I make my patient decisions at each visit because each visit can be different. READ MORE

  • Should I see a chiropractor or massage therapist first?

    Muscles get tight, ropey and knotty for many reasons. One of the most common reasons is overuse combined with mil joint dysfunction. You get a massage and you feel better today, but the problems come back. If you see a chiropractor first, you can eliminate the primary reason for those tight sore muscles. Many chiropractors have massage therapy within their office and can even bill the procedure to your health insurance.  READ MORE

  • How does chiropractic care help a child's cold?

    Simply put, our immune system fights the cold. Getting adjusted restores the nervous system back its normal potential. It's similar to sliding a dimmer switch on a light from dim to bright. The nervous system is what controls the immune system. So removing the dimmer switch makes the immune system work better so it can more effectively deal with the cold. READ MORE

  • Why is it important to drink water after a chiropractic adjustment?

    I like to tell my patients that our body hold on to toxins that it doesn't know how to properly process them. A chiropractic adjustment releases those toxins into our system like squeezing a wet sponge. Water will dilute those toxins and process them out through the urine. READ MORE

  • What is the best way to get my muscles to relax?

    Best "old school" remedy is Epsom salt baths. I tell every patient about this! Epsom salt is one of mother natures best anti-inflammatories. There is also a large amount of magnesium as well. Magnesium is one of natures best muscle relaxers. So this is how you should use it. Don't read the packaging, instead, pour no less than two pounds of salt into the tub and run full hot water and stir with a wooden spoon. Once dissolved, adjust the temperature to toleration and soak till your finger prune. You will be amazed! READ MORE

  • Foot pain from tennis. What can a chiropractor do to help?

    I see tennis players suffering from this every day. The pain is usually caused by a misalignment in the foot and/or falling arches. The feet can easily be adjusted but if the arch has fallen then proper orthotics will be needed. READ MORE

  • What is an adjustment like for a child?

    Their spines are just like an adults only still developing and growing. The adjustment techniques are the same but typically more gentle. Children are always easier to adjust and they respond better then adults because they have less trauma in their history. READ MORE

  • How long does chiropractic treatment take to work for kids?

    After the first adjustment there will be noticeable changes. The maximum benefits will take longer to acquire. READ MORE

  • Can chiropractors prescribe medications?

    Chiropractors cannot prescribe medications. We can recommend all natural supplements that can help, but nothing more. READ MORE

  • How can a chiropractor help after a sports injury?

    To answer you in the simplest way, a muscle's primary job is to move a joint. If the joint is out of alignment, it will put a different kind of stress on the muscle. This can lead to injury. The joint must be aligned correctly in order for the muscle to heal correctly. READ MORE

Get to know Chiropractor Dr. Christopher Hyde, who serves patients in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Dr. Hyde is a chiropractor who is currently serving patients at Elite Chiropractic and Wellness in Indianapolis, Indiana. Elite Chiropractic and Wellness is a modern facility known for its range of chiropractic techniques and other services. “Everyone in our office, from our receptionist to your chiropractor, has one goal in mind–to help you feel better fast. We know that when your body isn’t in top shape that your entire outlook on life can be affected. That’s why you’ll always be greeted with a smile here and leave with an even bigger one on your face” as stated on the practice’s website. 

 Dr. Hyde earned his Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) from Life University in Marietta, Georgia in 1997. 

In 2005, Dr. Hyde completed a certification that made him one of the first “certified golf conditioning specialists” in Indianapolis. He works closely with many of Indy’s professional athletes in a variety of sports. He is also an accomplished public speaker. This attribute has served him well in corporate speaking engagements and smaller private lectures. 

He attributes his success to his years of experience, as well as to his ability to think outside of the box and be able to ask the body itself questions in a way that will get it to reveal itself. 

Dr. Hyde is involved with the One Love Education Foundation, which he and his wife created in 2015. The mission of the One Love Education Foundation is to improve the potential education of the underprivileged Jamaican children. Since its inception, Dr. Hyde and his wife have transformed their adopted school from slated for closure to making the best test scores in the region. 

Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that mainly deals with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. A chiropractor uses spinal adjustments, extremity adjustments, manipulation and other techniques to manage patients’ health concerns, such as neck pain, back pain and other joint injuries like shoulders and ankles. They aim to improve patients’ functionality and quality of life by properly aligning the body’s musculoskeletal structure and enabling the body to heal itself without medication or surgery. Dr. Hyde utilizes manual adjustment techniques and computer-aided spinal adjustments. He tells all of his patients, “If you don’t like the way I am doing this, tell me. I have a dozen other ways to do it.”
