“The best part of my day is when patients tell me how our care has improved not only their pain but the quality of their lives, too. We look forward to doing the same for you and your family.”
Chiropractic care changed Dr. Madeira’s life after a bad tackle landed him on his head on a high school football field and caused severe neck pain and migraine headaches. It was his healing from this experience that motivated him to become a chiropractor. He founded the practice in 1982 and has been serving the people of Central PA and beyond ever since.
The Madeira family name is well known in the area; Dr. Madeira’s father was a school teacher and insurance agent in Hershey beginning in the 1950s. Dr. Madeira was the first in his family to enter the chiropractic profession. Now, he has influenced more than a dozen other extended family members to serve in the field, including two siblings and his daughter, Dr. Kayla Madeira Miller.
Trust an Expert.
Dr. Madeira has authored three books, including Seven Wellness Secrets That Will Change Your Life, written in collaboration with his daughter, Dr. Madeira Miller.

“I grew up in a family of many chiropractors and I have seen first hand the positive changes that chiropractic care makes in people’s lives.
I love working with families, especially kids. That passion has helped shape me into the scope of chiropractic that I enjoy most, which is caring for moms and children. I am certified in the Webster Technique, have special training in maternity and pediatric chiropractic care and I am board certified in neuropathy.
I am thrilled to be realizing my life-long dream of being a chiropractor. I look forward to meeting you and am excited to help you and your family be the best and healthiest version of yourself possible.”
Taylor Austin, DC
Doctor of Chiropractic, Knee Pain Program Case Manager
As a third-generation chiropractor, I am thrilled to be following in my grandfather, my uncle, and my aunt’s footsteps. I chose to become a chiropractor after witnessing so many amazing miracles in my own life, as well as in the lives of so many others all around me growing up. It wasn’t until I truly understood that chiropractic care assists and compliments the body’s own inborn ability to heal itself, that I knew this was the career for me. I am ecstatic to be part of such an amazing team of individuals here who are so dedicated, enthusiastic, and care so much about our patients.
When I’m not in the office helping change lives, I enjoy time at home reading, working in my garden and spending time with my two dogs, Nallie and Kora.
Christopher Dempsey, DC
Doctor of Chiropractic
My Father is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) and my mother is a nurse. Since I’ve been around healthcare my entire life it was only natural for me to want to become a doctor, too. I chose to become a Doctor of Chiropractic because my hometown chiropractor helped me throughout my athletic career, which included both soccer and diving at Susquehanna University. Chiropractic care led me to not only perform my best but also remain injury free. As of now, I am a current member of Hershey FC, a semi-professional soccer team right here in Hershey Pennsylvania.
My goal in becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) was to help people to get healthier and then help them to stay healthy, rather than just treating chronic illness.
Originally from Danville, PA I am now proud to call Hershey my home and love serving the surrounding communities. I’m honored for the opportunity to work with such an amazing and experienced healthcare team; one that cares deeply and has a stellar reputation.
