When Dr. Shane Kepler was diagnosed with severe scoliosis at age five, traditional medicine presented his parents with two options: risky surgery or a lifetime of debilitating physical challenges. Following the advice of a family friend, his parents took him to a chiropractor. Dr. Kepler not only developed a straight spine but also went on to win college athletic scholarships. At Kepler Family Chiropractic, he converts his personal experience with pain into opportunities to help patients live without it.
The team's philosophy emphasizes patient education and promotes preventative chiropractic care as much as the treatment of existing ailments. Dr. Kepler has adjusted patients ranging from newborn babies to 99-year-olds, as well as faithful clients who have been visiting his practice since it first opened 13 years ago. The compassionate crew also aids the local community with Lunch & Learn programs that encourage healthy living and reduce the number of water cooler refill-related injuries in the workplace.
After a hard hit during college football, Doctor of Chiropractic Travis Bangert thought his season was over. But then he saw the team chiropractor and, to his astonishment, he was back on the field and 100% better by the next game. It was at that moment that he knew he would become a chiropractor to help others achieve the same results.
Dr. Bangert’s colleague at Advanced Chiropractic Solutions, Doctor of Chiropractic Jessica Fleming, also found her passion for chiropractic treatments through a sports injury. She was 10 years old and competing in gymnastics tournaments nearly every weekend. Traditional medical doctors told her rest would heal her back; it did not. So she saw a chiropractor, and within weeks, she was back to her normal sports routine.
Both doctors’ backgrounds help them truly understand what their patients are going through when they come in for help. The chiropractors dispense manual adjustments and massages to alleviate everything from migraines to back injuries caused by patients trying to manually adjust their own spines.
Dr. Greg Mongeon refuses to confine his chiropractic expertise to the office; he has taken his know-how on the road and served high-school sports teams, mountain-bike racers, and even a rodeo circuit. In the same convivial spirit, he occasionally hosts complimentary banquet dinners to chat with past and prospective clients.
The doctor channels more than a decade of experience to correct spinal misalignments through a combination of hands-on adjustments, preventative tips, and rehabilitative services. With a constantly updated supply of vitamin and mineral supplements, he works to ensure that vertebrae stay strong in the face of rapidly changing trends regarding where it is cool to keep one’s piano. Licensed massage therapists on staff also help to alleviate aches and pains with adept kneads.
The chiropractic docs at Active Chirocare rely on holistic hands-on techniques to relieve pain and restore balance to catawampus spinal columns. At their spacious, modern clinic, they address backaches, neck aches, and headaches, in addition to sports and auto-accident injuries. The chiropractors promote a healthy lifestyle, chock full of exercise and good nutrition, and they strive to treat all problems naturally.
Start the process by plumbing your body's well of wellness with a lifestyle questionnaire detailing diet and exercise routines. After discussing your health concerns and goals, Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Duffy will administer tests to determine lung capacity, body-fat percentage, muscle strength, stress levels, and other important factors that can help improve the ratio of healthy Pac-Men to grief-causing ghouls parading through your gaming system. A rolling thermal scan will assess the functioning of the spine and central nervous system.
Within his comfortable office, Doctor of Chiropractic Ryan Tarnick practices considerate chiropractic care and needleless acupuncture, tenderly adjusting ill-aligned spines, nurturing injured necks, and applying electrical stimulation to points of the nervous system responsible for aches, pains, and spontaneous break dancing. Needle-free acupuncture is done via hand-held device, and it can ease suffering from painful conditions, including pinched nerves, sciatica, sinus pressure, asthma, allergies, anxiety, migraines, and more.
