Dr. Christian J. Carter and Dr. Derrick “Pete” Yoder, the co-owners of Emerson Chiropractic, Indianapolis, are thrilled to be part of their community.

Dr. Carter, who is known to his patients as Dr. Christian, says he and Dr. Yoder, who is known as Dr. Pete, have been enthusiastically welcomed by local residents since they opened.

“We took over Cerefin Family Chiropractic in November 2019, from Dr. Michael Cerefin, known as Dr. Mike, who started the practice in 1995,” Christian says. “In March 2020, we transitioned the name to Emerson Chiropractic.”

Dr. Christian worked with Dr. Mike for almost two years before the sale and change in ownership. He originally started with Dr. Mike at Cerefin Family Chiropractic in 2018 as an associate after obtaining his doctorate.

“Dr. Pete has spent 11 years practicing in Washington, Indiana and North Carolina,” Dr. Christian says. “He moved back to Indianapolis and we joined together to create Emerson Chiropractic. He brings great experience to the practice.”

The staff at Emerson Chiropractic takes pride in their work. The doctors work with patients to achieve any unique health and wellness goals they have.

“Many people have come to know our name, or have heard about Cerefin Family Chiropractic in some way,” Dr. Christian says. “Our goal is to continue to provide a high level of patient care that many people have experienced in the past, and will continue to expect from us. We take pride in helping our patients with their health goals, and keeping them feeling and functioning at their best. We’re excited to take over the business, and continue to be a part of the community.”

Dr. Christian says the staff is committed to helping people feel better.

Emerson Chiropractic“The common consensus on a Chiropractor is that we ‘pop your back.’ The truth is there is a lot more to it. We are focused on making sure that your spine is functioning and moving properly so that your brain and body can communicate efficiently through the nervous system. Your body undergoes a lot of stress that can come from physical, environmental, and emotional sources in your day to day life.”

Dr. Christian says it’s important to minimize these stress factors, and make sure a person’s health isn’t being negatively affected by them.

“We work to not only decrease pain, but also help to improve your body’s function, increase flexibility/ mobility, and improve your body’s ability to handle stress,” he says. “The relationship between the body’s structure and function can affect your overall health. We want to make sure everyone coming in is able to go about their daily lives the best they can.”

Dr. Christian said some common conditions among patients are back/neck pain, headaches/migraines, Sciatica, TMJ, carpal tunnel syndrome, herniated discs, scoliosis, and whiplash.

“We also offer acupuncture, spinal decompression therapy, and massage therapy,” Dr. Christian says. “We use these as additional ways to help people get out of pain and achieve their health goals. When necessary, we also provide therapeutic exercises/stretches and nutritional advice that patients can also utilize.”
