Oftentimes people begin seeing a chiropractor for musculoskeletal issues but then continue care for wellness/maintenance. This is similar to how a person with no dental issues goes to see a dentist for checkups, however, the spine is impacted by daily stressors much more than our teeth. Chiropractic care at Meier Family Chiropractic has demonstrated success on many levels in offering effective wellness care in Urbandale.

Every day we have stressors that impact our spine, intervertebral discs, and nervous system whether they be psychological, chemical, or physical stressors. Not only do these stressors exist, but they are cumulative if a problem isn’t corrected.

Chiropractors are trained to identify subtle changes in your back using their hands. Informative findings like muscle tightness, swelling, and the way the skin feels indicate what areas need to be adjusted, even if there is no pain. We can also feel deeper under the tissue to assess how a segment is moving.


Whenever the nervous system of the body is functioning correctly, the advantages are endless. Skin tone, heartbeat, lung capacity, blood flow, digestion, and overall mobility are simply some of the body’s functions that are positively influenced by a spine that is aligned correctly.

“Wellness chiropractic care” allows the doctor to address small issues before they become bigger. We love working with families and many times having their appointments grouped together. There are a ton of health benefits for your family by proactively taking care of your body with chiropractic care. Additionally, this is a great opportunity to work on other healthy habits like diet and exercise together as a family.

Our goal is to help maximize your health and the health of your family. Regular chiropractic care can help families maximize their health and prevent issues in the first place.


When the body is functioning at its best, people realize they have more energy and don’t get ill as often. Health is such an important component of our lives and the lives of our family members. Without health, we cannot enjoy life and our family in the same capacity. Put simply, being healthy results in enjoying life and family chiropractic wellness care is a great addition to a healthy lifestyle.
