"Dr. Kirk Wehrspan is an amazing chiropractor with a gentle bed-side manner and an honest approach towards whole health and fitness. Dr. Kirk starts by listening to the patient to understand their issues (pain, questions, goals, etc.) and he then develops a specific wellness plan tailored to the individual. After being a patient of Dr. Kirk's for just a short time, I am in significantly less pain and continue to improve my overall comfort and health. His adjustments have always been complete and beneficial. My custom orthotics (Foot Levelers) are a blessing to my feet, back, and entire body. I trust Dr. Wehrspan for me and my entire family. Thank you, also, to Elaine for being so welcoming on the telephone and in person. You folks are a breath of fresh air in today's hectic world. Please keep up the great work." William M. (age 36)

"Dr. Wehrspan has been my chiropractor since 2006 and I highly recommend his services. I trust Dr. Wehrspan's expertise and I consider him a partner in my health. As I train for various competitive sports I have found his chiropractic adjustments not only are helpful but essential to my health and my overall wellbeing. I find myself lucky to have found a trustworthy chiropractor!” Parady B. (age 32)

"Where do I begin? I have been a patient of Dr. Wehrspan for many years. He is always attentive, listens to my situation, and formulates a solution that works. Most recently I became plagued by severe headaches. After X-rays he could see exactly the problem in my neck and was able to treat it. He has also been very helpful in combating the symptoms of aging, so I feel in excellent shape and more youthful. I love the fact that I can easily get an appointment, am seen quickly, and am out in record time. I don’t spend 45 minutes waiting for the doctor! It surely works for my schedule." Jackie V. (age 66)

"I am glad to have found a professional and trustworthy option for chiropractic care. I would definitely recommend Dr. Wehrspan to those in need of chiropractic care." Lindi C. (age 25)

"I never gave up hope that someday I would discover someone who could help me with my foot pain, and finding Dr. Wehrspan finally rewarded me! After only a few treatments not only has my foot pain diminished but the frequency of episodes of my low back pain has diminished as well! Having worked as a licensed massage therapist and instructor, I knew something about the anatomy and physiology of the human body. I also knew there could be immediate and long-term side effects from the Plantar Fasciectomy and Tarsal Tunnel Release surgeries that had been performed on both my feet back in the late ‘90’s. Consequently, when my lower back pain became chronic, I supposed it could have something to do with my feet… but I couldn’t find any practitioners, Chiropractors, Osteopaths, or Physical Therapists, who were specifically trained to adjust the feet - until I met Dr. Wehrspan! My faith finally paid off! Thank you so much for taking this specialized training and for practicing in the Des Moines area." Blessings, K. Warren (age 62)

"Dr. Wehrspan is the best! I trust him completely with the treatment of my children!"
Jessica G. (age 30)

"Throughout my life, I have seen many chiropractors and am pleased to have continued treatment with Dr. Wehrspan. His office is incredibly personal, and I am always greeted with a welcoming smile. I am always seen in a very timely manner. Dr. Wehrspan has consistently done an excellent job with my adjustments, and I leave feeling far better than I ever have with any other chiropractor. I have always felt as if I were one of his only patients and a top priority. Because of his excellence, I am honored to give Dr. Wehrspan my highest recommendation." Mikelle W. (age 21)

"Dr. Wehrspan, you do the best stuff!" Jonah L. (age 8)

“Dr. Wehrspan’s treatment of my ongoing foot pain was the single most effective intervention I received in decreasing my complaints. I had seen a podiatrist, a massage therapist, and an acupuncturist without anything but short term relief. It is great to resume many more of my normal daily activities thanks to Dr. Wehrspan!” Susan M. (age 47)

"I had found myself having the most painful, aching feet at the end of the day. It was affecting my ability to garden and landscape. I have really benefited from Dr. Wehrspan's treatments. I think his unique work with patients' feet is a wonderful contribution to our community. I have a great deal of respect for him, both as a person and as a doctor. He is so devoted to his work and his clients and to doing his best. All of this enables me to implicitly trust him" Nancy W. (age 68)

"I was so impressed with the care I received at your office from the moment I walked in the door until I walked out. Your office doesn't have that usual cold feeling I get when I enter a doctor's office. I really liked how you explained everything you were going to do before it happened with the adjustments because that made me feel less anxious." Kris O. (age 56)

"I have been patient since 1999. At 17 years old I was diagnosed with two herniated vertabrae in my lower back. Without the help of Dr. Wehrspan I would have never wrestled in college and would not be able to serve as a volunteer firefighter. Today, I am still as active as I was at 17." Nick V. (age 30)

"We had a very good experience with Dr. Wehrspan. He is a caring and compassionate person. I had problems with fallen arches for many years and had seen several other chiropractors and specialists. He has adjusted my feet and ordered Foot Levelers which have been beneficial. My feet are much better especially if I return periodically for foot and back adjustments. My husband had a shoulder that caused him pain for many years after a motorcycle accident which the Dr. also adjusted until now he has very little pain. We both would wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Wehrspan." Dorthy and Jerry V. (ages 73 & 72)

"I have been a patient of Dr. Wehrspan's since he first began his practice in the Des Moines area over fifteen years ago. Graduating as he did from Palmer College of Chiropractic gave me the confidence to start care at his office. I have not been disappointed. Over these many years I have had many aches/pains and he has helped me with all of them. He not only is well versed in the care/practice of the feet but in the entire structural science of the human body. I would not trust my chiropractic care to any other doctor. I can freely discuss my concerns with him and he has always come through giving me the relief I so craved each and every time! He has been a God send to me and I mean that sincerely and completely." Sally C., age 60 (and still feeling young thanks to Dr. Kirk!)

"In just a week's time my feet really improved! I have gone to chiropractors for over 30 years, but never before had my feet adjusted. What a difference! My whole body feels better, from my feet to my knees to my back to my neck I am better. Thank you!" Kevin W. (age 61)

"I have been a patient of Dr. Wehrspan for many years and feel very confident about the care that I receive. He takes the time to listen, to evaluate and to concentrate on the trouble areas. He was my first call after being in a rear end collision over a year ago as I trusted him above all medical professionals to provide my initial evaluation and steer me in the right direction for my care. My husband started seeing Dr. Wehrspan reluctantly as he had back problems for years that never seemed to improve. After a few visits, he was amazed at the improvements and often talks about the benefits of Dr. Wehrspan and how much he helped relieve him of years of pain! I highly recommend Dr. Wehrspan!!" Sandy R. (age 39)

"I routinely work out and unfortunately had a pinch in my back after an intense workout. I saw Dr. Wehrspan the next day because it was interfering with my daily activities. I couldn't believe that shortly after my visit my back started to feel better. There was still a pinch, but it wasn't to the affect that I couldn't sit at my desk and work. I've also had him check out my feet and couldn't get over how wonderful they felt after he worked on them. I really appreciate that he never forces you to come back and understands financial difficulties. I always feel comfortable and leave happy when I visit Dr. Wehrspan. Not to mention, his assistant is exceptionally nice and understanding! Overall an A+ experience and always will go back when in the Des Moines area!" Caitlin H. (age 21)

"I have been seeing Dr. Wehrspan for several years now for several issues and he has always been able to help be get relief. I have tried physical therapy in the past and have not been able to get the relief I was needing. While expercise and stretching is important getting the chiropractic adjustment first is the most successful way to start. He has helped me with chronic back pain, occasional neck pain, and pain in my wrists and ankles. A much better way to go than painkillers and muscle relaxants. I highly recommend his services." Barry G. (age 47)

"I began seeing Dr. Wehrspan one year ago after being taken to the ER with severe back pain and being hardly able to move. The ER did nothing. Dr. Wehrspan took time to talk to me the next day and got me started on recovering from a sprained back immediately! I left being able to walk completely on my own." Cathy E. (age 48)

"Dr. Kirk Wehrspan is awesome! He always listens to my symptoms carefully and even adjusts my feet! I have used other chiros and got the feeling the number of patients seen was the upmost concern. I appreciate that Dr. Kirk DOES NOT focus on the quantity of patients through the door. Instead he spends the time necessary to provide quality care to the patient in front of him." Heather R. (age 34)

"My family has been going to Dr. Wehrspan for many years. I started out with serious numbness and pain in my back. I believe I am walking today because of my chiropractic treatments and the care I have received at Wehrspan Chiropractic. Due to arthritis, I get adjustments in my back, hands, knees, feet, and hips. He keeps me moving with a lot less pain and I rarely use painkillers. I have been to a lot of different chiropractors, but Dr. Wehrspan is the one that really makes a difference. If you suffer from joint/back pain, Wehrspan Chiropractic can make a huge difference in your quality of life. Very highly recommended!" Cindy H. (age 58)

"Several people in my family have been to Dr. Wehrspan. Three generations, for a variety of conditions; accidents, muscle pulls, and spinal curvature. He carefully designs his care appropriate to each person and his or her specific needs. Unlike other chiropractors, he doesn't pressure anyone into unnecessary X-rays or other additional medical procedures. He does amazing work and always lets his patients guide his technique. Top recommendation!" Joy D. (age 56)

"He always has the most compassion and care for his patients. He has even been willing to help my family in an emergency during off hours. He has taken time to explain scans the specialists didn't. I would and have recommended him to all my friends and family." Erika N. (age 24)

"I have been a patient of Dr. Wehrspan's since he first started practicing in West Des Moines over fifteen years ago. I can not say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Wehrspan. I do know that I would not be 'upright' without his care. I walk in struggling to straighten up and leave with a 'cure'. Thank you Dr. Wehrspan for keeping me active to enjoy my life with my kids and grandkids!!" Shirley N. (age 75)
