Dr. Dustin Ingalls
Dr. Dustin Ingalls is native to the area. He was born and raised right outside of Sioux Falls in Hartford, South Dakota. He attended West Central High School and participated in many activities there. He received the Outstanding Back and Joe Robbie awards for football his senior year.
Dr. Ingalls attended the University of Sioux Falls where he participated in football. During his freshman year, he sustained an injury to his shoulder that ended his college career. He then enrolled in South Dakota State University.
While attending SDSU, he received his first NUCCA adjustment. The pain from his shoulder was completely gone and his range of motion was tremendously improved. That is when he fell in love with chiropractic and the NUCCA technique. Dr. Ingalls graduated from SDSU with a Bachelors of Science in Heath, Physical Education, and Recreation in 2007. He then moved to Davenport, Iowa with his family while his wife attended Palmer College of Chiropractic; the Fountainhead of Chiropractic. While living in Davenport, he realized his dream of becoming a chiropractor and enrolled in the prestigious school himself.
He spent his time at Palmer learning from great professors who had excessive experience in chiropractic technique. He participated in the NUCCA and pediatrics clubs at Palmer, while keeping up with the intense curriculum, all while raising his growing family. In Dr. Ingalls’ last trimester he participated in the preceptorship program and was lucky enough practice under Dr. Jayson Snyder at Hartford Spinal Care. The preceptor program was invaluable to his career as he was able to learn, in great detail, the NUCCA technique. As Dr. Ingalls’ family continues to grow, his passion for pediatric and obstetric adjusting has been growing and he plans on enrolling in the Diplomat of Pediatric Chiropractic program starting next winter. The Diplomat program is the highest degree that can be earned in any chiropractic field.
