About the Doctor

Dr. Joel Ingersoll, DC

Ingersoll-JoelI grew up commercial fishing in Valdez, Alaska, worked in the Prudoe Bay oil field for several years, and worked manual labor jobs including runway and road construction projects in western Alaska.

Along the way I noticed that in many cases my co-workers used chiropractic to enable them to continue working. In some cases they had regularly scheduled visits during their time off the slope.

It became increasingly clear to me that the people who were using chiropractic, and trying to take care of themselves, eating right and staying active, were doing much better over time than those who relied mainly on prescription medications when they had problems.

I began occasionally seeking chiropractic care when I needed it, then made it a priority after a serious car accident.  Being rear-ended by a drunk driver left me suffering with severe low back pain as well as excruciating pain and numbness in my left leg.  My incredible recovery and love for learning set me on the path to becoming a chiropractor.

Chiropractic Education

After graduating from the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon in 2007 with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree I practiced in Oregon while continuing my education.

I have a post graduate certificate in The Kalish Method of Functional Medicine and continually study the most current literature, research and information regarding all aspects of health, nutrition, lifestyle, exercise and general wellness. Research shows these are the main factors affecting chronic degenerative diseases which are epidemic in our society and which rob us of our quality of life.

The Kalish Method of Functional Medicine is a mentorship program that focuses on the three main body systems; gastrointestinal, adrenal/hormonal, and detoxification, as well as their subsystems. 

It provides a systematic approach to discover the root underlying causes creating disease or dysfunction and focuses on how to correct those issues holistically. 

The Kalish Method has been used by noted health advocate Dr. Mercola in his clinic since 2007. It has also been taught to many doctors at the prestigious Mayo Clinic and integrated into their practices there. 

Dr.Kalish has been in cooperation with the world famous Cleveland Clinic and working with them conducting clinical trials using his method of Functional Medicine. 

Dr. Kalish has been teaching doctors and health care practitioners Functional Medicine for over 10 years and practicing it for over 20.
Additionally, I am Certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners Board, Certified in Physiotherapy and have been licensed in the State of Alaska since 2011.

A note from Dr. Ingersoll:

My second goal is to help clients achieve lasting wellness by guiding them in nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle options.
