Chiropractic Physicians



At akēsis, we have a very clear vision; to satisfy our customer's healthcare needs, helping them achieve an active life. This means that one of our core values, superior customer service, always guides our decision making. We believe that our customer-centric vision will result in more satisfied customers.

Our passion for creating a great customer service organization requires hard work, persistence and integrity.  Our goal is to consistently exceed our customer's expectations; we always have more to learn and we can always do better.


       Dr. Chris Franklin                                    Dr. Aaron Hammons


Our customer-centric approach means that we don't do conventional chiropractic care.  For example, our doctors not demand endless "maintenance" care; do not  x-ray every patient; do not require that you take truck loads of supplements; and, treatments are longer than 2-3 minutes.  Your treatment will be for 20 minutes!

What Dr. Chris and Dr. Aaron do is treat musculoskeletal pain and injury (sprains, strains, aches and pains) using the most effective care possible.  We believe that our patients are better served by bringing their healthcare concerns to a trusted provider with a deep understanding and passion for treating musculoskeletal conditions. Our doctors are certified in the leading soft tissue therapies, and that training will continue throughout their career.  This has nothing to do with high patient volume, billing for unnecessary services or increasing the bottom line.  It's about building trust with people.

Dr. Chris Franklin is a 2011 graduate of Western States Chiropractic College in Portland, Oregon. He had his own practice here in Moses Lake before joining Akesis in early 2016. Dr. Franklin is an alumnus of MLHS (2000), BBCC (2002), and WSU (2006). He spent 6 years in the Army National Guard with the 1161st Transportation Co. in Ephrata, including a deployment to Iraq in 2009. Dr. Franklin utilizes Active Release Techniques muscle therapy and Graston Technique to get his patients out of pain and back to activity as quickly as possible. He enjoys spending time with his wife and kids and attending Seahawks games as a season ticket holder.

Dr. Aaron Hammons is a 1998 graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic and a WSU alumni. He practiced sports chiropractic in Bellevue, WA, working with marathoners, ultra-marathoners, and triathletes before opening his Moses Lake practice. Here, Dr. Hammons continues his emphasis on using cutting-edge therapies – a combination of Active Release Techniques®, Kinesio® taping and Graston®Technique - to give his patients greater flexibility and injury recovery in a shorter amount of time. When he is not serving his customers, you will find him outdoors – typically boating on Moses Lake.
