Precise Care

With a Gentle Touch

Chiropractic is one of the most amazing healthcare professions, but very few people understand what it's all about. We are here to help you gain a basic understanding of how our Winterset chiropractors and also our Osceola chiropractors can help you and your family.

Your spinal cord is the system your body uses to pass information from your brain to every other part of your body. If a vertebra in your spine is misaligned, it may be putting pressure on a nerve. Even a small amount of pressure can disrupt the information traveling over that nerve.

If your nervous system is being compromised, your immune system may be compromised and malfunctioning. Chiropractors are specially trained to treat and protect the nervous system by relieving pressure on nerves. By doing this chiropractors are allowing your body to function at its max potential.


WELCOME TO Chiropractic 1st

Hi, I’m Dr. Stuart Hoven, owner of Chiropractic 1st in Winterset and in Osceola, IA. We are private chiropractic clinics focusing on patient care utilizing the Gonstead system of chiropractic. We take care of complete families from newborn to over ninety years old. The specialty of chiropractic focuses on the spine and maximizing the efficiency of the nerve system. We provide initial relief care, rehabilitative and corrective care, and wellness care. We view chiropractic as a vital part of your health care.

There are marshmallow like pads between your vertebrae called intervertebral discs. The discs are very tough, but can be damaged. The discs provide for movement in the spine. When discs start to degenerate the spine can become less mobile, and may even start to fuse together.

The discs also provide space between the vertebrae. This is important because nerves pass through the spaces that are created by the discs. Discs also act as a shock absorbers. When movement occurs, the jelly solution inside the disc has the ability to expand and compress. If the spine become misaligned, a disc can become buldged or herniated. In some cases it may even rupture. A misalignment is not the only cause for this problem. Age can cause the disc to become weak and dehydrated.

If you are struggling with back or neck pain, chiropractic care may be the best treatment option for you. Chiropractic is one of the least invasive and safest options for conditions of the spine and discs.
