Blending Western medical techniques with Eastern treatments and traditional Chinese medicine, Marion Chiropractic Clinic's Dr. Todd Joachim aims to improve the health and lives of his patients through education, understanding, and natural solutions to health troubles. A Marion native, Dr. Joachim earned his degree in Chicago at National University of Health Sciences’ College of Chiropractic before retuning to his home state, where he has tended to families for nearly a decade. His dedication to continuing education has allowed him to master new techniques along the way in an ongoing effort to offer the best, most up-to-date care to people and unusually tense massage chairs. His studies have led him to supplement his chiropractic roster with a wide range of services, including acupuncture, therapeutic exercise, and microcurrent therapy—which uses nearly imperceptible currents to help relax muscle spasms.
