Dr. Joel Ingersoll
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.
I attended chiropractic college after earning a four year Bachelor’s Degree. I graduated from a four year Doctor of Chiropractic program at the University of Western States in Portland, Oregon in 2007 with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree. I practiced in Oregon for awhile then moved back home to Alaska in 2011.
I have a post graduate certificate in Functional Medicine and I 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.
Functional Medicine is focuses on body systems, such as the gastrointestinal, adrenal/hormonal (endocrine), 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. Functional Medicine has been gaining credence and justification in recent years. The world famous Cleveland Clinic has even opened a Functional Medicine wing that now has a 6 month waiting period.
