Meet Dr. Vander Wielen 

   
   Scott Vander Wielen graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University with his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree in 2009. While attending chiropractic college, he was introduced to the Gonstead system of adjusting, and functional medicine and recognized each as powerful approach to problem solving. The Gonstead technique focuses on finding the segment which needs the adjustment through a scientific/analytical approach.
