Chiropractic is simple. It's natural. It honors the wisdom of your body. The intent is to restore your body's ability to regulate and heal itself; without drugs, without surgery. Dr. Carl D. Horkavy, DC has helped many enjoy relief and better health for almost a quarter-century.

Dr. Horkavy attended Texas Chiropractic College for his degree and served in the US Air Force. Now he spends his time relieving pain for people in Benson, NC and surrounding areas. Benson Chiropractic has been family owned and operated since 1985 and will continue to provide a personal touch to all manner of pain relief.

In addition to providing care to many of the area's local student athletes and coaches, Dr. Horkavy has treated many professional and amateur athletes. Dr. Horkavy is also an avid bicyclist participating annually in charitable fundraising events.
