Meet Dr. Chris Elleraas

Chiropractic Allowed Me To Walk Again

Adjusting womans upper backOn the high school football field is where Dr. Chris Elleraas began his chiropractic path. After football practice one day he could barely walk due to a compressed nerve in his back, shooting pain into his leg. He is fully aware of the devastating effects of not being aligned and pressure on his nerves. His parents after bringing him to many doctors brought him finally to a chiropractor and the rest is history…his chiropractic career was born!
