I’ve never met a chiropractor who is more focused on explaining your problem to you, or more genuinely concerned about your well-being than Dr. Tinkle. Aside from being an excellent chiropractor, Jon has a great “bedside” manner and will actually take the time to speak with you about your ailments. The bottom line: D…r. Tinkle is the best chiropractor in Central Indiana / Ohio!

If you have back pain, tried everything and don’t know what else to do . . . CALL TINKLE CHIROPRACTIC!

I am a very active person, but I have been plagued by back pain for several years that sometimes hinders my ability to be as active as I would like. Over the years, I have received regular treatments from another Chiropractor that brought some relief, but it never lasted and my back pain always reoccurred. I had almost given up on Chiropractic care and I went without treatments for nearly a year. But after experiencing an increase in my discomfort, a friend recommended Tinkle Chiropractic. Upon my initial visit, I was amazed and very impressed with the thoroughness provided by Dr. Tinkle. It was immediately evident that he was very knowledgeable and was genuinely compassionate about providing the proper treatment based on my specific needs. Using a treatment approach that combines a series of manipulations, stretching and exercise techniques – Dr. Tinkle has truly made my back better than it has ever been. I have already sent a few people to Tinkle Chiropractic and they too are very impressed. I would highly recommended Dr. Tinkle to anyone!


I have suffered from migraine headaches for several years, with all the accompanying nausea, sensitivity to light and certain odors, auras, etc. While my family doctor has prescribed some medicine for the occurrences, we were never able to determine the trigger for the migraines, despite dietary changes, trigger tests, relaxation techniques and every scan and blood test in the book. Even when I didn’t have a migraine, I was in constant dread of the next one.

I had resisted chiropractic approaches, mostly from fear of the unknown. I was a nervous wreck the first time I went to Dr. Tinkle’s office. Dr. Tinkle realized I was nervous and very thoroughly explained everything he was doing and how it could help. Throughout the treatment, Dr. Tinkle continuously asks questions to make sure that his proposed treaments are staying on track, and through that process he discovered other issues that I had just become used to over the years, including one very tender spot in my middle back and pain in my wrist accompanied by numbness in my hand.

By the third visit, the back pain was gone completely! My husband and I were trying to determine the last time i had a migraine and couldn’t come up with a definite date (it’s been that long). When you consider the prior to beginning treatment, I had at least 3 migraine days per week, that’s a pretty amazing accomplishment! We are still working on my wrist and hand and it is improving so that I only have it when I work very long hours at the computer or write a lot at one time.

The improvement has been mothing short of miraculous to me and my family. I look forward to my visits! I encourage anyone who has been hesitant about chiropractic care to call Dr. Tinkle’s office and see what they can do for you.

I hesitated going to a chiropractor because family doctors and two other chiropractors were unable to help me over the past 20 years. I had many prescriptions that were eventually thrown away because they didn’t help and I feared the side effects. I became desperate because the pain was keeping me awake, my digestion was affected, and I was having trouble going up and down steps and getting up from a chair. I also couldn’t turn my head from side to side. I then went to Dr. Tinkle and now have full function with my neck. My digestion has improved, and best of all, I am sleeping all night without any pain, I would recommend trying his services.

After hurting my back several months ago, I contacted Tinkle Chiropractic at the recommendation of two co-workers. I was told that Dr. Tinkle took the time to listen to his patients. It is true! Over the time I have been under his care, my back and range of motion are better than ever. I had mentioned to him that I had stiffness in my neck and shoulders, sometimes leading to headaches. Needless to say, I have not had a headache in four months. The atmosphere is caring and professional. I would highly recommend Tinkle Chiropractic.

I would recommend Dr. Tinkle and his practice to anyone. I was able to get in quickly and receive the help and plan needed right away. I’ve had more relief after visiting him than I have with similar problems and other chiropractors. Thanks to Dr. Tinkle, I understand what’s going on with my back and what I need to do keep it healthy.

If not for Dr. Tinkle, my ability to strength train would be severely compromised. His ability to diagnose and fix structural and muscular problems is the best I have had, and I have seen a number of chiropractors over the last 13 years. From my clients whom I train to my wife’s 81 year old grandmother, I refer to Dr. Tinkle for that reason.

I have had the pleasure of receiving care under Dr. Tinkle. The techniques he has used have contributed significantly to the improvement of my condition. Where other methods failed, the relief he provided me through chiropractic care has allowed me more mobility and function than I have had in the last 5 years. I appreciate their care and concern at Tinkle Chiropractic.

My name is Danny Paschal. I am 42 years old and I have lived with hip and back pain for over 15 years. I went to a chiropractor in Richmond years ago for 9 months. I finally quit going because he wasn’t helping me at all. So I lived with pain until 2009. I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t believe in Chiropractors after my last experience, but a good friend told me about Tinkle Chiropractic. She said he was really nice and listened about your pain. So I went and she was right, he is a very nice guy, he listened and in a couple of times going he had taken the pain completely away. I couldn’t believe it. The other Chiropractor worked 9 months on me without any relief. He made me a believer in Chiropractic.

Thank you Jon Tinkle for my life back!

I have been to a few chiropractors in Richmond with no relief, and I left one with more complications then I went in with. I was left afraid to try again. My husband started seeing Dr. Tinkle for his lower back pain. My husband’s back constantly hurt and he had trouble bending. After a couple of weeks with Dr. Tinkle I was amazed by my husbands results. Still afraid, I went with my husband to one of his treatments to observe what went on. I went to my own appointment the next week. Dr. Tinkle explains why you feel the way you do and exactly what he is doing to help you. After just a few treatments my low back pain was totally gone. Now my left arm doesn’t hurt nor go numb. I can turn my head. I can sleep through the night. Most of all I can lift my nieces and nephews and not be afraid of dropping them. I used to have to sit on the couch and hold them like I was a little kid. I didn’t know how bad I felt until I started to feel good. Dr. Tinkle is not only caring about how you feel, but about your finances also. He will start stretching out your visits as you start healing, and if you have a relapse for what ever reason he will get you in more often as needed. My husband and I both love Jesse, his receptionist. She is always friendly and does her best to help you with appointments and insurance. After several years I have definitely found a good chiropractor, and because of him I no longer have to live in pain.

I have had lower back pain for about 27 years off and on. Last spring things changed, I woke one morning and my legs were numb and I had excruciating pain in my back. This scared me enough to find out what was wrong. After all the tests and visits with a surgeon, I was given pain medication and told that they couldn’t do anything for me at this time.

Since then, I have been to other chiropractors and to a physical therapist, but after all the appointments, treatments, and exercises I just wasn’t feeling any better. So I gave up and decided I’d just live with the pain.

A friend of mine convinced me recently to see Dr. Tinkle. They got me in the week I called, looked at my test results and designed a treatment plan for me. I’ve had several treatments and can already say that I feel much better than I have for a long time.

Dr. Tinkle and his staff treat me like an individual with care and compassion and have given me a chance to know what it’s like to live without constant pain.

I would recommend anyone with unresolved pain to visit Dr. Tinkle.

I became a patient of Dr. Tinkle in the summer of ’08. My back hurt terribly. I went to Dr. Tinkle because he is in my insurance network and I am very glad I did. He has been able to relieve the pain not only in my back but also headaches that I would get almost daily. My boys (ages 6 and 8) also have had pain in their legs at night. Their family Dr. said it was ‘growing pains.’ Dr. Tinkle was able to remove their pain that was due to uneven hips. We haven’t had a single night interrupted with crying from ‘growing pains,’ and everybody with children knows those can be long nights! I highly recommend Dr. Tinkle to all my friends and family.

Dr. Tinkle is an outstanding chiropractor. He spends time evaluating each client in order to determine the appropriate treatment specific to that individual. Through a series of adjustments with Dr. Tinkle, my lower back issues have improved dramatically. I have referred several friends and family members to him and they too have had positive results. I highly recommend him to anyone with back problems.

Ten years ago I had surgery on my neck. A piece of bone was removed from my hip and was put into my neck to repair three badly bulging discs. A few days after the surgery I was told that in about ten years the discs above and below the fused area would start to break down and I may need another surgery. I was shocked, you mean I may have to go through this again? It was a possibility.

In the past few years the pain in my neck turned into pain in my arms and then I started to get numbness and tingling. I was so afraid; while I’m thankful for modern medicine and what they were able to for me, I didn’t want to go through surgery again.

The pain was getting worse all the time and soon became unbearable. I tried tropical rubs, heat, ice, tylenol, and advil. Anything that I thought might help, but nothing did.

Our minister started mentioning in his message on Sunday mornings how much Dr. Tinkle had been helping him with some problems he was having. The thought crossed my mind that maybe he might be able to help me. Week after week Dr. Tinkle’s name came up in Steve’s message. I thought that maybe God was using Steve to get to me. I decided to call Dr. Tinkle… he got me right in and listened to me sob like a baby. After a thorough exam and x-rays he told me he thought he could help. I was given hope. He started working on my neck, and it wasn’t long until I started feeling some relief. With each treatment things got a little better.

When I think where I was then I first started seeing Dr. Tinkle (with a pain level of 10 on a scale of 1-10) and where I am now (most of the time pain level of 2 out of 10)… I am so thankful that God used my minister to bring me to Dr. Tinkle. I am so thankful to Dr. Tinkle to be willing to try to help me when I thought nothing else could.

My name is Gladys Beatty and I am 75 years young.

I am in fairly good health for my age, but do have a few problems, one of which is osteroarthritis and low back pain.

I have suffered with back pain for many years, due to deterioration of the vertebrae in the lower lumbar area.

Back In December of 2008, I was complaining to a friend at the church I attend and they encouraged me to see a Chiropractor. I had given this some thought, but never pursued it. When I got home, I called the office of Dr. Jon Tinkle and made and appointment for the next day.

He was very thorough in asking about my history of back pain and also took note of any other health issues. He took x-rays to determine the cause oy my problems and what he needed to do to correct them. He discussed the films with me and my husband and pointed out the problem areas and why they had become so painful.

He assured myself and my husband that he needed to be extra careful in his adjustmants not to do any damage to the spine and explained exactly what and how he would treat me.

I only wish I had done this years ago, and I would have had relief from some of the terrible pain and pressure in the nerves that I came to experience.

I am doing very well now and am amazed at how much he has done for me and that I no longer have the pain that I had endured for so many years. I occasionally have some minor discomfort due to my age, but as long as I continue to do as he advises, which involves doing several stretching exercises, riding my stationary bicycle and coming to him for necessary adjustments when needed, i should be in great shape for many years to come. I am forever greatful for his service.

Richmond, Indiana

I’ve been having reoccurring lower back pain for a couple of years and finally decided to do something about it. Dr. Tinkle took x-rays to find out the cause of my problem and then explained to me exactly how he would treat me. Throughout my treatment he has re-evaluated my condition and has adjusted my care according to how I was responding. My pain that I had for the last 2 years is almost completely gone and I am much more flexible. I feel so much better!

His new web site is fantastic. I have used it to find exercises that I can do at home and I have learned a lot from the articles.

I also want to say that Jessie, Dr. Tinkle’s office manager, is a definite asset to his practice. She is always smiling and so upbeat.

Dr. Tinkle has helped me so much and I highly recommend him! I have already referred two coworkers to him.

Roger Craig- Football
“Do I believe in Chiropractic? Let me answer it this way. I’ve sent over 30 of my teammates, including All-Pro quarterback Joe Montana to the Chiropractor, and because of Chiropractic, I never missed a game in 8 years!” quoted Craig.

Jerry Rice-Football
A man who once carried the ball for 197 touchdowns is the now carrying the ball for the chiropractic profession.

The legendary Jerry Rice, one of the National Football League’s (NFL) greatest players and wide receivers, has been enlisted by the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress to speak out on his use and support of chiropractors.

An advertising campaign featuring Jerry Rice kicked off in the December 15th issue of ESPN The Magazine, with a national circulation of over 2 million. The full-page ad included supportive statements on how chiropractic made a difference in making him one of the most feared wide receivers in the history of football, and later as a finalist with the popular Dancing with the Stars competition reality program.

“This ad is the beginning of a comprehensive public relations effort that is planned in the next couple of months to communicate Rice’s endorsement of our profession and will include placement in Sports Illustrated, USA Today, Men’s Fitness and Women’s Health,” said Laura Carabello, principal in CPR Communications, the company that handles all media and public relations for the Foundation.

“My first experience with chiropractic care was right before the 49ers were to play the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl XXIII in 1987,” said Rice in the promotional video. “A couple of our key players were injured and a chiropractor turned things around. I quickly became a believer and ever since, I have had the benefit of chiropractic care.”

“Football is a very rough and vigorous sport,” said Rice in the video. “Many of the pass patterns in a game – either long or short – required a maximum effort. I took some vicious hits from players nearly twice my size. [Rice is 6’2″ and his playing weight was 200 pounds] Thankfully, I had the durability to withstand these tackles – or I would never have succeeded or lasted as long as I did. Chiropractic was the key to keeping me in the game.”

Although his football career is over, his use of chiropractic treatment continues -most recently helping him when he was a finalist on Dancing with the Stars.

“Dancing with the Stars was every bit as exhausting and challenging – though not nearly as brutal as football,” said Rice in the video. “It required many hours of practice. I had aches and pains that I never had before. Again, chiropractic made the difference – and kept me dancing and in competition.”

Joe Montana- Football
Joe Montana, one of the most recognizable celebrity athletes, holder of four Superbowl rings, three Superbowl MVP’s and Player of the Year in 1990 has just agreed to become the spokesperson for Chiropractic in the State of California.

Dan O’Brien- Olympic Gold Medalist

“You obviously can’t compete at your fullest if you’re not in alignment. And your body can’t heal if your back is not in alignment. It was the holistic idea that I liked about Chiropractic and that is what track and field is about. Every track and field athlete that I have ever met has seen a Chiropractor at one time or another. In track and field, it is absolutely essential. Chiropractic care is one of the things I think that no one has denied or refuted.”

Derek Parra- Olympic athlete, world record holder
Parra has said he helps keep his body at its peak performance by receiving regular Chiropractic care. “I’ve always been a proponent of Chiropractic care. The problem doesn’t get fixed until I go to a Doctor of Chiropractic.”

Evander Holyfield- former Boxing Heavyweight Champ
“I do believe in Chiropractic. I found that going to my Chiropractor three times a week helped my performance.” He says “Once I drove 20 miles to see a Chiropractor before a fight. I have to have my adjustment before I go into the ring.”

Emmitt Smith- NFL rushing record holder
An article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram explains that it all started after the 1994 season when Smith endured a lot of hamstring problems and he began to ask himself some tough questions. “Do I need to get more rest? Do I need to eat better? Do I need a little more training? How can I take care of my body better? Do I need to find a Chiropractor? It was time for me to invest in me,” Smith said. “I found a specialist that’s really good in balancing out my body to make sure my hips are rotated right, and my body is functioning properly. I remember somebody telling me that what I put myself in during the games is like having a car wreck every Sunday. It’s against the norm. You can find yourself in awkward positions. That stuff takes its toll. But if you take advantage of the health care, balance your body back out, put it back where it’s supposed to be, you function better, and you recover faster.”

Wade Boggs- Baseball
“Last year I found my Chiropractor and I have been seeing him ever since. I have been pain-free and feeling terrific. I swear by it. Now, it is just maintenance and keeping in line so the nerves don’t touch.”
