about our chiropractic office  Riverdale Park, MD
Sims Chiropractic Center was initially established in Hyattsville 2004 but in June 2021 we moved a mile away to Riverdale, MD. Riverdale was a growing area rich in diversity, and Dr. Sims knew that the city was underserved with chiropractic and felt his skills would fit perfectly into our community. He’s pleased to serve our area, including Hyattsville , with a natural way to live a healthier life.

Dr. Douglas Sims, Jr.

In Dr. Sims’ teenage years, he struggled with uncontrollable high blood pressure that had no known origin. A walking time bomb for a stroke, he had no idea until his medical doctor informed him at an annual physical exam. The doctor’s answer was to place Dr. Sims on medication. Shortly after, an automobile accident caused Dr. Sims to see a chiropractor.

Chiropractic improved his neck and backaches. Amazingly, his blood pressure readings lowered, too! It took 17 adjustments before Dr. Sims’ blood pressure was the lowest it had been in years. He weaned himself off the medication and decided to join the natural healing profession.

Training and Associations
Dr. Sims attended Hampton University to achieve a Bachelor of Science degree. Then, it was onto Life University in Marietta, Georgia, to earn a Doctor of Chiropractic.

Today, he continues to take regular continuing education courses. He’s involved in our community through educational sessions and various health screenings. The memberships Dr. Sims holds include the following:

  • The American Chiropractic Association
  • The Maryland Chiropractic Association
  • The American Black Chiropractic Association

Living the Chiropractic Lifestyle
Dr. Sims resides in Calvert County with his wife, two daughters and son. When he isn’t with his patients or family, he enjoys reading and traveling. A black belt in Taekwondo, he is often exercising through martial arts, jumping rope or running. He is a lover of music who recently inherited his father’s guitar and plans on learning to play.

“I consider myself an excellent listener and hope I get the opportunity to meet you in person and discuss your specific health challenge.”

The Foundation of Everything We Do

We believe that your body has an incredible capacity to heal itself. It does so from the inside out. There are certain times in which external forces, such as medication, are necessary. The starting point, however, should always be the conservative approach—chiropractic, nutrition, rest, mindset and diet—to help the body heal.

“I am passionate about helping humankind be happier and healthier. ” – Dr. Sims

Help for All Your Concerns

Our patients make up a broad array of people, from pediatrics to geriatrics. Their health concerns vary but are often neuro-musculoskeletal in nature. Weekend warriors, gardeners, athletes and those with chronic or acute conditions are all welcome.

Once you find relief, you’ll have the choice to continue with wellness care, which most of our patients do. These maintenance visits ensure that you won’t experience a recurrence in the future, and have less chance of pain, sickness and disease.

Get Back to Your Normal Life

Too often, people think that pain is “normal.” They have slowly gotten used to it over the years until it simply became an inevitable part of their every day. We love hearing how their pain is under control; they don’t need to take medications anymore; they’re sleeping better and can concentrate in their work and personal lives.

When you don’t have barriers holding you back, you can express yourself the way you’re supposed to. The best part of our job is hearing a grandparent tell us they could take a trip they always wanted to go on or were able to go to a family barbecue and be able to dance. Let’s help you live your best life!

Philanthropy and giving back to our community is a vital part of who we are. We invite you to take advantage of a $40 pass that entitles you to a consultation, examination and X-rays. We’ll donate 100% of this fee to a charity of our choice. If you’ve been considering whether chiropractic is the answer for you, it’s the perfect opportunity to find out.
