Not everyone understands the importance of giving back to your community, but you do. The truth is those who give back often receive benefits beyond what they’ve given. You’ll be happy to know you’ll be on track to accomplish that when you decide to become a chiropractor, giving you some impressive career advantages.
For chiropractors, it’s just as likely to have a rewarding career in a small town or rural community as in a big city. Back and neck pain, headache, and other ailments of musculoskeletal origin are as commonplace in offices, small family businesses, and high-tech as they are labor-intensive industries.
Dr. Whitney Haase was raised in the Omaha, Neb., area, and Dr. Nolan Clausen is from Ord, a small Nebraska town of just over 2,200 people. While in chiropractic college, they each realized a desire to return home to practice. Drs. Haase and Clausen opened their practice, Midwest Movement, in January 2020.
“I was born and raised just a few miles from our practice,” Dr. Haase says. “I knew I wanted to be back somewhere in the Omaha metro, and Elkhorn seemed like a perfect small town.”
Dr. Clausen says he likes knowing that chiropractic healthcare is making a positive impact on people’s lives in the Elkhorn community. Seeing patients he’s treated, getting back to the jobs they love, or volunteering on the weekends, is the primary reason he decided to become a chiropractor.
