Celebrating 10-years!

Detox Month

September, 2004. My then 3-year old son Jackson, seen here watching the ribbon fall as we celebrate our official opening of Heartland Chiropractic and Wellness Center, is soon to be
13-years old. I get a little emotional when I think about how HCWC has grown and I have grown with it. We owe so much to you, our patients, for your loyalty and trust in our practice, allowing us to assist you in your own journey. We have never taken for granted the way you have shaped what HCWC is today.

Please help us celebrate by posting on our Facebook page. And as long as you're visiting please take a moment to Like! us. We would love to know how HCWC has assisted you in your wellness journey

Pediatric CarePediatric Care

Irritation to a young person's nervous system can begin in-utero. The baby's position in-utero and during delivery (natural or cesarean) can create stress on their nervous system. Even a "normal, healthy" birth can induce 40-50 pounds of pressure on a newborn's neck and spine.

Prenatal Care

Our approach includes hands on therapies and education, which help the woman adapt to the changes her body goes through during pregnancy.


Lifelong health and happiness are achievable by choice, not chance.
