Dr. David BallengerDavid Ballenger, D.C.
Dr. Ballenger has always understood the value of having a healthy body by living an active lifestyle throughout his entire life, from growing up on a farm, participating in NCAA athletics, Army R.O.T.C, and then active duty military. After his time in the ARMY, Dr. Ballenger still felt a calling to serve
Not originally a fan of doctor visits himself, he was skeptical about a career in healthcare. However, after injuring his neck weight lifting, he began to experience the benefits of chiropractic. He had a chiropractor examine and adjust his neck and felt the relief instantly. He continued a series of treatments for his entire spine to help adjust injuries to his body that he hadn’t even known about. After personally experiencing the benefits, Dr. Ballenger knew that he wanted to spend his life helping others get the same relief and restore the health of their bodies through chiropractic.
With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Ballenger understands the importance of promoting the overall health and well-being of his patients. He uses the “whole person approach” by integrating the best hands-on-techniques, state of the art physiotherapy procedures and providing the most progressive and natural vitamin and mineral supplements on the market today.
