Thousand Miles of Nerves



“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” – Mary Oliver

meet Dr. Loni

I did not always know that I would be a chiropractor. In fact, I didn’t know what chiropractic was until my teenage years.

I grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin with a loving family. Beginning around age 12 I struggled with anxiety and depression on and off for several years, and I was so inexplicably worried and introspective I could not imagine what I would do with my life now, let alone in the future. My mind felt like a running hamster wheel, I didn’t sleep well, and I always felt tense. I fell ill often, many times with sinus infections and ear infections. It seemed that many people I knew were stressed out to the point of exhaustion like this at some level, so I thought it was “normal” and just lived with it.

I first visited a chiropractor by chance at age 16 when I accompanied my mother to her chiropractic appointment. The chiropractor offered to check my spine too, discovered a misalignment in my neck, and corrected it with an adjustment. Little did I know, this would change my life forever. 

(Of course, at the time, I shrugged it off as no big deal with all the wisdom of a teenager.)


Thorough Chiropractic Exam

You will NOT be prodded, poked, or pricked like a pincushion. You WILL receive a Comprehensive Chiropractic Examination which aids Dr. Loni in understanding the cause of your health challenge(s) and to create your customized Care Plan. Specifically, Dr. Loni will check your spine for a condition called vertebral subluxation. To put it plainly, Dr. Loni will:

  • Analyze your posture
  • Review your body’s range of motion
  • Palpate your spine
  • Complete three easy and painless neurological scans to assess your nervous system and overall health

If you have questions during the exam, just ask!

Safe, Gentle Adjustments

Dr. Loni will explain everything she does before adjusting so you feel comfortable and know exactly what to expect. When it comes time for the adjustments, Dr. Loni utilizes a small adjusting instrument called an Activator that is safe, gentle and very effective.

Activator adjustments are high-tech. There is no popping or cracking with these adjustments, but rather very precise and targeted adjustments designed to specifically care for just the right areas.

Years of research have gone into the development of the Activator Instruments to create gentle chiropractic adjustments that are safe and effective for patients of all ages. You can learn more about the Activator at
