Dr. Jerrad Bergren is a doctor of chiropractic serving Balsam Township, Grand Rapids, and surrounding areas. He was driven into a health care profession after spending four years of his childhood in and out of hospitals and clinics battling leukemia. Even though they were very difficult times for Jerrad and his family, he fell in love with health care and knew he would one day be in the health care field. He accomplished that goal in August 2008 after spending four years at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN for chiropractic school. He is one of the youngest chiropractors to ever graduate from NWHSU being just 23 years of age at that time. Before that, he spent two years at Itasca Community College in Grand Rapids, MN and two years at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities for pre-chiropractic studies.
After graduation, Dr. Bergren started his clinic in Balsam Township to show small town support by giving back to the community and the people who did so much for him and his family during his childhood battle with cancer.
Dr. Bergren uses a “whole person approach”. This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and make whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, Dr. Bergren is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.
