Learn Who We Are

  • Danny Beard, DC, DICCP
    I am a second career chiropractor. I worked for many years as a cabinetmaker and carpenter. I have three marvelous children, Shanti, Isaiah, and Alicia, that have grown up and left the nest to experience this wonderful thing we call life on their own terms. Twenty seven years ago I was divorced and went through what many people would consider a mid-life crisis. Although I really enjoyed what I was doing, an aspect that was missing for me was doing something that made a real difference in the world, that genuinely helped others. I liked creating nice things, but didn't feel as though my doing so contributed to making this world, or even my corner of it, a better place.

  • Diane LaVigne, CT, Office Manager
    Portage has been my hometown since I was 5 years old and I really find it a unique place to live and work. I graduated from Portage High School and have been married to Doug for 27 years. We have 2 beautiful children, Jena 23 and Derek 22. Jena is working in property management in Madison and working towards her real estate license and Derek is a senior at UW Stevens Point and will graduate with a fisheries and biology degree. I enjoy camping, golfing, hiking, reading and spending time with my friends and family. I like to volunteer my time at area schools. I enjoy working with all the patients in our office, especially with our transitions weight management program.

  • Carol McConochie, CT
    I was born and raised in this area and left at the age of 18, after graduating from Portage High School, to join the Air Force. Northern California was my home for 32 years, working as an adult social worker. I retired in July 2001 and moved back to this area to be near my family bringing along with me a daughter and grandson. Joining forces in January 2002 with this office was one of my better choices in life.

  • Joanne Antonetti-Beard, LMT, CT
    Massage Therapist, Autism Consultant
    I was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and lived there for 44 years. After high school I was trained as an EMT and then a combat medic in the US Army. I then graduated from the Practical Nurse program at Bay de Noc College and worked as an Army nurse in the National Guard. I also worked as an Industrial Nurse. I worked in a Laboratory office, as a pathologist assistant in the morgue, and as a medical transcriptionist. I lived in Kansas for a short time before moving to Wisconsin in 2009 with my two sons Luke and Tony, who are now both in high school. Luke was a very sickly infant and toddler, and was on many prescription medications. Tony came sixteen months after Luke and was born with severe autism. Not satisfied with the lack of meaningful answers, regarding autism, from the peers in my very own medical field, I set out on a quest to figure out what happened to my son and how I could fix it.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I am impressed by the details of the services offered here - the x-rays and scans that help pinpoint the problem. I didn't have any of this at my previous chiropractor. I am improving each week since I started coming to this office."
    Linda G. / Oxford, WI
  • "I have received very good service here and have been most impressed by Dr. Beard's adjustments. I also enjoy the dry erase boards!"
    Jody G. / Montello, WI
  • "My pain is pretty much gone. It doesn't hurt when I walk and I can now go to bed and lay on my back without pain. I can also make the bed in the morning without pain when I bend over. I like the natural approach to wellness - nutritional supplements, etc."
    A.B. / Portage, WI
