About Us

Dr. Dean Shivvers, Chiropractor

Dr. Dean Shivvers grew up in a small town near Des Moines, Iowa. He received his Doctorate degree from Southern California University of Health Sciences in Los Angeles in 2013. While working his way through graduate school, Dr. Dean was also the president of the Gonstead Club, which promotes a specific chiropractic technique that he utilizes in the treatment of patients.

Dr. Dean first experienced the benefits of Chiropractic care as a sophomore in high school when he injured his neck after a motorcycle accident. After many months in pain and dozens of medical doctor appointments he was told he would need exploratory surgery. Before going through with the procedure his mother took him to a local doctor of chiropractic. After a few weeks of conservative care the pain was gone and he was able to return to normal activity. The experience left a lasting impression and inspired.

Dr. Dean to become a doctor of chiropractic himself. Through the proven conservative chiropractic method Dr. Shivvers has successfully treated hundreds of patients who have been diagnosed with arthritis, low back pain, headaches, chronic pain, carpel tunnel, allergies, acute injuries, neck pain and TMJ (jaw problems).
 
Dr. Dean agrees with Thomas Edison when he stated: "The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

With this in mind, Dr. Dean is determined to fulfill his purpose to help as many people as possible to obtain and maintain an optimum level of health and well being by balancing the human body, normalize bodily function, and strengthening vital organs through the drugless holistic and all natural chiropractic approach.
