Hello! I’m Dr. Stephnnie Decker
Doctor of Chiropractic
After years of searching and finally finding solutions to my own health problems, one of which was chronic severe back pain, I decided to go back to school to become the type of doctor I’ve always wanted for myself! A doctor who has time to listen, evaluate extensively, treat thoroughly and give a level of care that is just not possible in a rushed environment.
My practice allows me to take the time needed to treat the whole person, the care I believe every person truly deserves.
My doctor of chiropractic degree is from Cleveland University in Kansas City. Most people are not aware of the depth of education chiropractors receive in anatomy, physiology, neurology, immunology, radiology, diagnosis, blood testing, etc. But even with that foundation, it took a post-doctoral course in functional medicine to learn to look more deeply into symptoms, testing, labs and physiology to understand how the systems of the body work together and how to bring the body back to balance using natural methods like lifestyle and nutritional changes.
What to Expect
When you schedule your appointment you will receive an email with a link to complete your intake paperwork, which should take you about ten minutes to complete and includes all information you need to know.
FIRST VISIT: 60-90 minutes: We’ll begin with an examination to evaluate your musculoskeletal system and perform any testing of joints, muscles, nerves or tendons indicated by your symptoms and I will evaluate your gait and take your before pictures.
Once that is completed, I will explain everything you need to know about the structural correction I provide. Once all your questions are answered we can proceed with your first treatment. The adjustments are so gentle because when you know exactly what the body needs and set it up, the adjustments almost happen by themselves. It’s like the body was just waiting for the opportunity to fix itself!
After your adjustment I will teach you how to support your structure with the chairs you choose to sit in, how to set up your pillow when sleeping and all about the best shoes to wear.

People often talk about adjustments “holding.” That’s not really a concept I work with. The adjustments “hold” unless you do something that causes the structure to shift again. What seems a mystery as to why an adjustment doesn’t “hold” can be solved if we look into it. It’s not magical or mystical and we will work together to find the cause.

The treatments I provide make changes in structure you can not only FEEL, you can SEE them, too!
