Meet Dr. Chad Nielson

Chiropractic changed my life from the first treatment.

How it all began…

Dr. Nielson Family PhotoI was very skeptical and suffered for years with back aches and headaches treated with drugs. Getting sick every year with the flu and bronchitis was expected, as was multiple rounds of antibiotics.

I just wish I knew about chiropractic sooner.  Growing up on a cattle ranch is hard work and physically demanding. I started riding horses at a young age and rodeo was the natural progression. Many wrecks and crashes left me with back pain, headaches, and sickness I could never get a handle on. I remember my box of medicines for sore throats, cough, fever, congestion, headaches, foot rash and other ailments. I never thought chiropractic could help me until a car accident changed a family member’s life. Chiropractic slowly restored her health and she urged me to try the benefits. Needless to say, after my first adjustment I knew what my career path would be. After several years of getting regular chiropractic care, I was able to throw away my medicine box (everything had expired anyway) because I no longer needed it.

My Chiropractic Education

I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa because it is the founding school of chiropractic. The faculty and facilities are state of the art. The biggest, and most exciting, challenge for me was the intensity of the program, but the “educational backbone” and spirit at Palmer helps students to soar and love learning. I was surprised to learn how much more training chiropractors get in anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and neurology versus the medical profession. The philosophy classes were so beneficial because they explain the power of the chiropractic adjustment.

Our Philosophy

My practice philosophy revolves around function. Muscle function, joint function, and nerve function must be normalized as we return to wellness. Chronic injuries inhibit the body’s ability to adapt to our environment and leave us in a state of dis-ease. Patients who are seeking a long term relationship with their health care providers respond well to our model of care. Continuity and persistence are important to meet your long term health goals, so lets get started today.

Outside of the Office

I am married to my high-school sweetheart Destiny and together we have Natalie, Dallan and Blake. We love camping, fishing and traveling with our dog Tiny. Natalie loves riding horses, basketball, gymnastics, swimming and piano. Dallan is happy riding horses, playing soccer, camping and swimming.  Blake is busy exploring his world and loves to laugh and smile.  We are so blessed by all 3 of their fun personalities.

I prefer to get my spine adjusted every week to maintain proper function and be pro-active with my health. It is important to check for muscle imbalances often which lead to spinal stress and decay. I also go to the gym and get 30 minutes of cardio 3-4 times per week, avoid artificial sweetners and ingredients, and try to eat whole organic food whenever possible. Our family relies on natural remedies herbs, homeopathics, sunshine, whole foods and chiropractic to keep us healthy.
