Every new patient in our office will start with a consultation to discuss their case. After the consultation, there will be an examination of the patient and x-rays are taken if deemed necessary. Once the issues have been diagnosed, we move into treatment of the patient with chiropractic and/or acupuncture care. Other forms of physiotherapy may be used as well. A treatment plan is set up for each patient based on their condition to achieve the best results possible. Common conditions treated by chiropractic and acupuncture are back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, shoulder and hip pain, athritic pain, pregnancy issues, and others.

What is Chiropractic Treatment?

Chiropractic is a form of health care concentrated on the detection and removal of a severe form of spine and nerve stress, a condition that puts pressure on nerves, unbalances your body, lowers your resistance to disease, and weakens you: the vertebral subluxation complex.

Chiropractors do more than just help relieve pain symptoms: Chiropractic is about optimizing your overall health by restoring normal function within the nervous system.

Chiropractic has helped millions of people recover from sickness, disease, and disability and to minimize the use of drugs and surgery in their lives.

What Clients Say

Treatment with Dr. Gunderson changed my life. Not only did my chronic back pain disappear by the end of our treatments, but my general health improved almost instantly too. Thank You!

Stacey B, Ames, IA

I’ve been examined by chiropractors in KC and Doug was quicker to find the problem than my last chiropractors. After 2-3 months of treatment, I haven’t felt better in my life. He advised me on how to sleep at night and that has improved my quality of life tremendously.
