IMPROVED chiropractic services for the community are what Dr Mark Pascoe and Dr Jesse Middleton hope to achieve after merging their practices together.
The newly formed Lithgow Chiropractic Health and Wellness Centre (CHWC) opened on Monday, May 3 on 43 Main Street.
After years of planning, Dr Pascoe from the Lithgow Valley Chiropractic Centre and Dr Middleton from CHWC decided to merge their practices in mid February.
"I have been operating in Lithgow for almost 20 years and I've known Jesse for a long time, we're very excited to open and expand," Dr Pascoe said.
"The reason for merging is so we can provide improved services to the community, modern technology and first class health care," he said.
CHWC currently operate across various locations in the Central West including Bathurst, Cowra, Orange and Mudgee and Dr Middleton said it had been a dream for quite some time to open in Lithgow.
"It's exciting to see it become a reality and we want to help the people of Lithgow and make a better difference," he said.
He said Lithgow CHWC can help clients with multiple issues such as lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica and carpal tunnel.
"We also have a very strong team approach, we've got a lot of people dedicated to doing exercises, exams, we've got our chiropractors doing adjustments and we have really cool technology, we've got a brand new X-ray machine and a nerve scanner machine," he said.
Dr Middleton said the practice specialises in creating rehabilitating programs to help people get better and not have to travel out of town for it.
"Our mission is to adjust and educate as many people as possible in the Central West, so if we have practices in various locations people don't have to travel and then we are actually able to do a lot with the education side of things," he said.
The newly opened practice also brings a new face to town, with chiropractor Dr Branko Bojanic making a tree change all the way from the Central Coast.
"I'm really enjoying the move, I grew up in a quite similar regional town to Lithgow so I've moved here and I love it, I've joined the local soccer team and various other community groups, I love the small town community," he said.
Dr Bojanic and Dr Middleton said they looked forward to creating life-long relationships with clients.
