When I was a freshman in college, I had a major fall on ice. As an athlete, it was important to regain my strength and health as quickly as possible. I spent considerable time with ice, exercise traditional physical therapy and after three months I was basically no better than when I first fell. My girlfriend’s father was a chiropractor and at her insistence, I scheduled an appointment with him. In approximately two to three weeks I could resume my regular activities and exercises.
I graduated from Wartburg College with a double major in biology and psychology. My father-in-law recommended Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Mo. I was not completely sure what I was getting into, but it did not take long for me to become completely enthralled with what I was learning. I was anxious to use what I had learned and upon my graduation I was able to return to Grundy Center and begin practice with Dr. Andrew Hagen. Through the years I have done extensive study in extremity adjusting, sports medicine and completed a study in nutrition earning my DACBN. I recently received my advanced certification in acupuncture and have incorporated it into what has truly become a full-service chiropractic facility.
Being able to help patients through chiropractic has never been work to me; it is enjoyment and fulfillment.
I have three married children, two beautiful granddaughters and one energetic grandson. In my free time I enjoy golfing, traveling, reading and exercise. Keeping myself fit and healthy is a priority for me. I do my best to include five to six cardio routines per week and two to three rounds of strength training each week. In addition, I schedule weekly chiropractic treatments for myself. Thank you for visiting our website. I hope it has been informative. If we can be of service to you, please call our office.
