Dr. Chelsie Englund – West Point Office
Dr. Chelsie grew up in Grand Island, Nebraska. She received her Bachelors of Science degree from Briar Cliff University in Sioux City, IA where she also continued her athletic career as a participant on the volleyball team. She then continued her chiropractic education at the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. At Palmer, Dr. Chelsie served as a Diagnosis Teaching Assistant and Clinical Radiology Technician Assistant. She also enjoyed volunteering her time serving as a teaching assistant in the Pediatric classes. She currently enjoys playing coed volleyball, competitive women’s league, running with her dog, and being with family, especially her daughter Londyn. Dr. Chelsie takes great pride and joy in her career as a chiropractor helping others get their lives back and restoring health!
Dr. Chelsie's chiropractic story began as a high school athlete, when she was unable to run track or long jump without severe low back pain. She had exhausted all conservative treatment routes but nothing helped her as well as chiropractic care did! With a few chiropractic adjustments she was back on her feet and able to run and jump with little to no pain! From that day forward, Dr. Chelsie decided she too wanted to help and serve others through chiropractic.
Dr. Chelsie uses many different forms of chiropractic care tailored to each individual. Among those techniques, she is certified in Webster Technique for Prenatal care and will be completing her full certification in Pediatric and Family care in the near future. However, Dr. Chelsie loves seeing patients of ALL ages! Although Dr. Chelsie has always had a passion for helping the little ones, it wasn't until she did her chiropractic mission trip in Fiji during her studies at Palmer that she truly fell in love with chiropractic care for kids. There she learned the true power of what chiropractic could do for children and decided to extend her education through the ICPA.
Dr. Chelsie is Nationally Board Certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (Part I-IV & Physiotherapy) as well as licensed by the Nebraska Board of Chiropractic and is a member of the Nebraska Chiropractic Association. She is currently also a member of the ICA and International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and is the NE District Representative for Palmer College of Chiropractic.
Dr. Chelsie would be honored to serve you and your family!
