Dr. Nestor J. Pagan
My name is Dr. Nestor J. Pagan. I am a graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic, now Logan University, located in St. Louis, Missouri. I have a diverse practice and employ various techniques to serve the needs of my patients. I use techniques that include low force, instrument assisted, as well as standard force chiropractic techniques based on the patient’s requirements.
I have also trained and utilize extremity adjustments such as shoulders, wrists/hands, feet/ankles, knees, and elbows. I utilize soft tissue techniques and manipulation as well as muscle and nerve re-education. I also have had special training in the treatment and rehab of TMJ disorders.
I first became introduced to Chiropractic medicine following a shoulder injury and as such I have made every effort to provide chiropractic care to the best of my abilities, not only to the spine, but the entire body.
I am a veteran and I have served honorably in the Unites States Air Force and the U.S. Army National Guard.
I am an active martial arts instructor and have been teaching and practicing Kung-Fu for about 25 years.
I have been performing weight training and resistance training for most of my life.
I am a father to a great 8 year old little girl and I spend most of my free time taking care of her.

Dr. Eric Hayes
Hi, I'm Dr. Eric Hayes! I am originally from Birmingham, Alabama. I graduated from Auburn University in 2010 with a Bachelors Degree in Exercise Science (Kinesiology). During my time there, I became interested in chiropractic. I was practicing the drums and began to develop an overuse injury in my arm. I thought I was going to require surgery, but my father told me to see his chiropractor. I was happy with the results - my whole body felt better, and I was able to play the drums again without pain or side effects. At that point I knew that I wanted to be a chiropractor. I decided to attend Life University in Marietta, Georgia where I graduated in 2015 as a Doctor of Chiropractic. After graduating, I worked with 2 chiropractors in Costa Rica. I enjoyed the experience, but I decided to return to Alabama where I practiced in Birmingham and Huntsville.
I work with patients who have low back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, and arm and leg pain. To me, the best part of being a chiropractor is seeing patients return to activities that their pain had prevented them from enjoying. I value effective, comfortable chiropractic care. For this reason I select from several adjusting techniques that include low-force instrument, drop-tables, and of course manual techniques. In addition to adjustments, I educate the patients on proper motion to help lessen or prevent future flare-ups.
Outside of the clinic, I like visiting my family in Birmingham. I am a big fan of music in general. I have enjoyed getting to know Dr. Pagan, the staff, and the patients here at Limestone Chiropractic. I look forward to getting to know y'all and being an integral part of this community!
