New chiropractor takes over Delano Chiropractic Clinic
By Cullen Schultz
For anyone who has had back, neck, or spinal pain, in general, has considered, Delano has a new practitioner in town.
Dr. Nathan Neubauer took over as practitioner for the Delano Chiropractic Clinic April 16, replacing Dr. Mike Bartell, who left to pursue his own practice in Glenwood.
“There’s a lot of excitement right now,” Dr. Neubauer said. “Dr. Bartell made this place great. I want to continue and improve upon that.”
Neubauer worked closely with Bartell for a short time to familiarize himself with the clinic and the patients to make the transition as smooth as possible, before becoming the sole clinic practitioner April 16.
“Our main focus is to make it an easy transition for the patients,” Neubauer said.
Neubauer is not planning any significant changes to the clinic in the near future, instead focusing on the transition.
“If things come along we will change, but as for now, no,” Neubauer said.
The clinic and Neubauer have a lot to offer its patients, and the community as a whole. The clinic has two adjusting rooms, a therapy room, an examining room, and onsite x-rays.
“If they want to be here and get helped, they will get helped,” Neubauer said.
As for treatments, Neubauer provides adjustments using diversified techniques, to meet the various needs of his patients, which will include many of Bartell’s patients, as well as some of his old patients, who are following him from Buffalo.
“Bartell and I adjust very similar,” Neubauer said.
The clinic has a drop table to provide patients who are having trouble moving. The table stands straight up and lowers the patient flat, then proceeds to stand them upright after the adjustment is made to alleviate any pain the patient might endure while bending or getting up.
“It all depends on what a patient needs,” Neubauer said.
For therapy, the clinic provides exercises for prevention and strengthening, as well as EMS and ultrasound machines to help alleviate muscle pain.
“We have different styles of technology and therapies to help individuals treat their bodies,” Neubauer said.
The clinic also has one of the newest pieces of technology chiropractors have to offer, The Insight Subluxation Station.
This machine was originally developed for NASA, and allows Neubauer to show patients a non-invasive, painless picture of their nervous system, and how it is affected by a spine being misaligned.
“Seeing is believing,” Neubauer said.
To go along with therapy and treatments, Nutrition Dynamics supplements and vitamins are available for purchase. Neubauer will be available to answer any questions consumers or patients have to ask.
“I want to make sure they are educated, and know why they are taking them,” Neubauer said.
Besides treating patients, Neubauer is also hosting a health class Tuesday nights for the community. The class focuses on prevention, and covers topics such as exercise, nutrition, and posture.
“It used to be just for patients, but I want to open it up to everyone,” Neubauer said.
To get to know more about the Delano Chiropractic Clinic or Neubauer, an open house will take place Thursday, April 26 from 4 to 7 p.m.
“Invitations are being sent out, but everyone is welcome to come in,” Neubauer said.
The open house will have refreshments, snacks and will consist of demonstrations, office tours, and safety tips. The focus will be on healthy tips for the upcoming gardening and landscaping season.
“Meeting a lot of people in the community is the goal,” he said.
Neubauer grew up in New Ulm, and attended St. Cloud State University, graduating in 2002 with a bachelor of science degree.
He continued his training in Minneapolis, at Northwestern Health Sciences University, receiving his doctorate in 2006.
Neubauer got the opportunity to work at the Delano Chiropractic Clinic because he worked for Olson Chiropractic Centers in Buffalo for the past year.
The Delano Chiropractic Clinic is associated with the Olson Chiropractic Center, and a little over a month ago, the opportunity came for Neubauer to stay in Buffalo or come to Delano.
“I chose Delano in a heartbeat; it is great opportunity that I couldn’t pass up,” Neubauer said.
He has been married to his wife, Jenni, for six months, and currently lives in Buffalo.
“We are just newlyweds,” Neubauer said with a smile.
Neubauer loves the small town atmosphere, and is excited about the opportunities Delano has to provide.
He is a member of the Delano Area Chamber of Commerce, and is looking at hopefully, in the near future, joining the Delano Jaycees.
While he is not in the office, he enjoys spending time outside, fishing, hunting, and playing sports.
“I love the size of the community, distance from the cities, and the outdoor opportunities Delano has to offer,” Neubauer said.
Delano Chiropractic Clinic is open Mondays through Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays by appointment. For more information, stop at its office at 120 Bridge Avenue, or call (763) 972-2215.
