Meet Dr. Rachel Curtis

Understanding How to Stay Well

Chiropractor Ankeny, Dr. Rachel CurtisAfter working in a hospital setting for years, Dr. Rachel saw a constant flow of sick people who were on medications and never seemed to get better. She had been set on becoming a medical doctor and achieved a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Creighton University in Omaha, NE with the intent on continuing to medical school. An internship she completed at a senior center, though, changed her perspective. Seeing an older population who were well and mobile made her realize that aging didn’t have to mean being ill or living in a nursing home.

“I started going to a chiropractor in high school after sustaining a low back injury in the weight room. I’ve been adjusted ever since, including through two pregnancies and to get help with migraines. I no longer identified with the paradigm of traditional healthcare so I pursued a career in chiropractic.”

Learning to Help Others

Dr. Rachel attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa to earn her Doctor of Chiropractic. “I enjoy seeing people regain their health and find a renewed sense of hope in overcoming acute and chronic issues with chiropractic care.” She’s also certified in the Webster Technique and takes courses through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association.

Living an Active, Healthy Lifestyle

Married to Joel with two children, Wyatt and Willa, Dr. Rachel and her family stay busy in the great outdoors. They like to bike, hike and fish, and the kids are involved in several different sports.
