Dr. Nelson says...

From a very young age, Chiropractic has always interested me

During a regional wrestling tournament I was seriously injured to the point I could not move my neck without excruciating pain. After a trip to my medical Dr. and some pills that didn't help, my parents took me to a local chiropractor for care. After an examination and x-rays I received my first adjustment. Within two weeks my problem had greatly resolved to the point I could start training again. Before long my health was completely restored.

I had Seen the Benefits of Chiropractic Care

After many years of athletic competition, and multiple injuries, I had seen the personal benefits of Chiropractic care over and over. Without regular chiropractic adjustments I never would have maintained my health or achieved the high levels of competition. These experiences led me to pursue a degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic later in life. I thought, what better job could there be than to help others regain their health.

Being a native of Moline, I chose to attend Black Hawk College before attending Palmer College of Chiropractic.

At Avenue Chiropractic

For well over a decade I have seen what Chiropractic can do to relieve pain and reduce the symptoms caused by injury, illness and lack of physical conditioning. I will personally work with you to help you achieve optimum health as quickly as possible. I practice using non-force and low force techniques which are safe, comfortable and effective. Through thorough examination I will locate the underlying cause of your symptoms, explain the problem, and discuss your treatment options.

Away from Avenue Chiropractic Clinic

I have been happily married to my best friend, Marguerite, for 30 years. We reside in Moline and enjoy the outdoors, gardening, golf and our dogs Matty and Bella. We believe in volunteering ourselves for the betterment of our community.

I believe in health through Chiropractic, proper nutrition, and exercise. Let me help you in all these areas to be your best.
