Our Vision

The vision of Dakota Chiropractic is to strive to become a center of health, healing, and education for all Chiropractor patients of the community.

Our Mission

  • Treat each and every patient with the utmost respect, integrity, and honesty.
  • Alleviate each patient’s pain and suffering as quickly and effectively as possible.
  • Examine, diagnose, treat, and correct the underlying causative factors of the patient’s problem in order to provide health and wellness beyond symptomatic relief.
  • Improve the functioning of the nervous system through chiropractic adjustments, and, therefore, strengthening each patient’s general health, energy level, and resistance to disease.
  • Educate patients about exercise, nutrition, posture, ergonomics, and the functioning of the body, thus, empowering patients through knowledge.
  • Enhance health and the quality of life of each and every patient so he/she may deal more lovingly, patiently, and harmoniously with his/her family, friends, and colleagues.
  • Assisting one patient at a time enables us to touch many lives.
