If you’ve driven down Santaquin Main Street in the past few months, you may have noticed a new business in town.
Located directly across from the Santaquin post office, Santaquin Chiropractic received a warm welcome when its doors opened in April with a two-day grand opening by Dr. Dane Owens, DC.
Following a serious back injury, while playing football in high school, Dr. Owens found relief from his local chiropractor, which started his interest in the profession. He not only knows how it feels to have back pain, but he has experienced first hand the frustration that accompanies trying numerous techniques to find pain relief.
These experiences have led him to have a compassionate bedside manner with his patients. After graduating from BYU-Idaho with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology, Dr. Owens wanted to do more to help others achieve optimal health and well-being. It was then he decided to pursue chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic West, located in San Jose, California.
It was there that he learned how to be the Primary Care Professional for spinal health and well-being. After receiving his Doctorate from Palmer in 2015, he moved back to Utah where he began the search to put down roots and settle into a community. It wasn’t until a few years later that he came across Santaquin and felt it was the perfect place to do just that. So what is chiropractic?
According to Palmer College of Chiropractic West, chiropractic is a health-care profession that focuses on the spine and other joints of the body, and their connection to the nervous system. The word “chiropractic” means “to be done by hand.”
Chiropractors, like Dr. Owens, use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system. They help patients maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary drugs or surgery. An estimated 50 million Americans see a chiropractor each year. Dr. Owens is a primary care doctor who specializes in spinal health and adjustments; he also offers corrective exercises, kinesiology taping, soft-tissue therapies, lifestyle recommendations, fitness coaching, and nutritional advice. He is looking forward to offering a class this fall at the Santaquin Recreation Center.
Dr. Owens and his wife Hilary have one son and are expecting another boy this fall. They have been in Santaquin for one year this summer and are looking forward to serving the community.
