Meet the Chiropractors
Dr. Jay Schroder
Dr. Jay Schroder uses chiropractic care to improve the health and wellness in all areas of patient’s lives, whether they are having problems with back pain or neck pain, or just want to start feeling better when they wake up in the morning. Dr. Schroder takes a “whole person” approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Schroder will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient’s individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives.

Dr. Todd McGilvra
Dr. Todd McGilvra has been a practicing chiropractor for nearly 20 years. He has performed thousands of adjustments throughout his career, and has seen a variety of patients including celebrities, professional athletes, and countless “weekend warriors.” He has worked with patients ranging in age from newborns, to seniors in their 90’s, emphasizing the importance of a healthy spine at any age.
Dr. McGilvra did his undergraduate studies at Cal State Fullerton University, and received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree, with honors, from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1995. He has had extensive postgraduate training in areas such as spinal and postural rehabilitation, nutrition, and the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries, and auto injuries. He takes a custom tailored approach to treatment, believing that every patient is unique, and there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to chiropractic care. He shares that, “I have found that patients feel empowered, and get better results when I get them involved in the formulation of a treatment program based on their specific problems, and their personalized goals for treatment.”
Originally from Las Vegas, Dr. McGilvra grew up playing sports year around, including soccer, baseball, golf, water skiing, and snow skiing. He and his wife Kristen have been married for 16 years, and they have two beautiful children, Emily, and William. They enjoy spending time outdoors together, golfing, cycling, hiking and camping. His newest passion is learning to cook delicious dinners for his family and friends on his Big Green Egg!
Dr. McGilvra practiced in Orange County, California for over 15 years before moving to Franklin in 2012. He loves the people, seasons, food, and scenery here in Tennessee, and is proud to call Franklin home. He joined the team at Healthworks Chiropractic in 2015, and is excited to partner with Dr. Schroder at their newest location, in Murfreesboro.
