As a junior player in the United States Hockey League, Stephen Thiesing had grown accustomed to taking hard hits. Nothing could have prepared him, however, for the full-speed collision that left him convulsing on the ice with a severe spinal-cord trauma. Much to his surprise and disbelief, a subsequent visit to the doctor revealed nothing damaged or out of order. Still in pain, Stephen was sent on his way.
This unfortunate visit planted the seeds of Stephen’s interest in alternative modes of healthcare. Years later, after he had begun his career as a chiropractor, he discovered the source of his pain in a compression fracture in his neck. Bolstered by this discovery, he continued training to find a solution for his aches and eventually founded Thiesing Family Chiropractic Center to provide others with the kind of care that was missing from his own youth.
Dr. Thiesing is joined by Dr. Jennifer Maxey, who also spent her early years fighting against a lack of wellness knowledge. After a youth filled with less-than-nutritious food and drinks, Dr. Maxey found herself in Germany. There, she undid years of poor health with a carefully calibrated diet of high-nutrition foods. Thankful for her own fortunate recovery, she vowed to use her newfound knowledge—as well as her skills as a burgeoning naturopath—to help others find the same success.
Now, the two doctors draw from their training and personal experience to craft specialized treatment plans based on patients’ needs. Spinal adjustments are a central focus of Dr. Thiesing's practice, as they can reduce nervous-system disruptions and help the body right itself naturally. Through a series of targeted adjustments, he relieves pain and stress resulting from injuries, headaches, allergies, and repeatedly carrying one’s boss from his office to the lunchroom. Dr. Maxey handles the practice's wellness wing, helping patients unlock the body's natural healing abilities through everything from wellness and dietary counseling to quantum reflex analysis and therapeutic mud packs.
