Dr. Elise Rigney, D.C. is one of Fort Collins' only pediatric and prenatal chiropractors. She is a wellness expert and uses a "whole person approach" - looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption and implementing whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments are needed to optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, Dr. Elise is able to help others accelerate and/or maintain their journey to good health.
Dr. Elise believes you can make an incredible difference in the lives of children by examining their spine at birth for subluxation. That is why she has received an immense amount of pediatric training through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association and is beginning prenatal research through the National Institute of Health. She is also Webster Certified through the ICPA’s Executive Director, Dr. Jeanne Ohm.
Dr. Elise holds a Bachelors in Physiology and Norwegian & Scandinavian Studies through the University of Minnesota, as well as Bachelors in Human Biology through Northwestern Health Sciences University. Following her undergraduate degree, Dr. Elise completed her Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota. Upon completing her Doctorate, Dr. Elise practiced as an Associate Chiropractor at the largest Chiropractic clinic in the world. She then moved on to open Impact Chiropractic in Fort Collins in early 2012.
Dr. Elise has created a chiropractic clinic where her patients are educated and understand the value of natural chiropractic care. She sees the importance in continuing education and since beginning in practice, she has kept up-to-date on the newest research and effective techniques in spinal correction. Her aim is to inspire hope and promises to focus on the cause of the problem, not its effect. Dr. Elise loves educating others on not only how to reach their optimal health level, but on how get more out of life!
