Walk-in Chiropractor in Ankeny

Arbor Vitae Chiropractic Clinic is the walk-in chiropractor in Ankeny, dedicated to offering a convenient way to get pain relief quickly. You have a busy schedule and don’t have time to wait for 2 weeks to take care of back pain. You need relief now, not sometime down the road. We offer that pain relief through evidence based care that meets the highest standards for the profession. Our goal is to alleviate pain and  improve your health as quickly as possible. By using an effective suite of chiropractic techniques,  we have established a long track record of treating people safely, and naturally.

The main conditions we treat are neck and lower back pain. Conditions that stem from these are headaches, sciatica nerve pain, shoulder pain, herniated & bulging discs. On the trauma side of things, we see cases of in-home falls, auto accident injuries, and sports over use or traumatic injuries. We do quite a variety of adjunct therapies like cold laser, ultrasound, electrical stim, muscle stripping and trigger point ischemic compression. When looking into the cause of the pain complex, we will consult on posture, ergonomics and orthotics.

How we got here

After attending Palmer College of Chiropractic and graduating with a Doctorate of Chiropractic, the State of Iowa licensed Dr. Lubkeman to practice in 1998. We have been applying these non-invasive treatments of spine related injuries ever since. Having worked with many thousands of patients over the years, we try to get the most out of their chiropractic care in a walk-in setting. As a doctor, it’s important to listen to your pain experience and examine the problem areas. Only then can we focus our care, develop a working plan, and do our best to get you better.

For your convenience and accessibility, we offer walk-in hours (See the posted times). Like we said above, you have pain now and want treatment now. We are amenable to seeing patients at other times and we can schedule appointment times outside of normal walk-in hours. We do ask that you give us a chance to clear our schedule by giving us 24 hours notice.
