Who We Are

Heartland Chiropractic + Wellness Center is owned by Dr. Valerie Skow and established in Johnston, Iowa in 2004. Dr. Skow had the vision of creating a clinic that focused on helping individuals and families live their best lives through chiropractic care and healthy living.

HCWC was founded to help babies, children, adults, expecting moms, office workers, athletes and more who are searching for a natural way to live a more abundant, vibrant life.

Our Chiropractic Physicians

Since 2004 HCWC has grown to three chiropractic physicians; *Dr. Valerie Skow, *Dr. Juliet O’Donnell, and most recently *Dr. Tyler Davis. Each brings their own talent and passion to our practice. Though all of our physicians offer care for the entire family.

Dr. Skow specializes in working with women through all the ages and stages of life: from the challenges of pregnancy to supporting women caring for children, all the way through menopause and beyond. Dr. Skow wants you to be able to do all the things. She has achieved a fellowship for the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, a distinction for chiropractors specializing in prenatal and pediatric care.

Dr. O’Donnell’s patients request her again and again for her creativity in mobilizing joints and ability to visualize where the root of the cause is; not only in her chiropractic practice but her functional medicine/nutrition, as well.

Dr. Davis area of focus is helping kids of all ages reach their full potential through neurological evaluations, adjustments and exercises.

Our doctors will go above and beyond to make sure that you get the attention you need, feeling listened to and cared for. Most importantly, they will get and keep you moving!
