Beard

Danny Beard, DC, DICCP
Doctor

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.

.

It was at this same time that I discovered chiropractic. You see, when I was in second grade, I was walking home from school and my back spasmed and I fell on my face on the sidewalk. When my mom took me to our family doctor, he told me I had scoliosis, which is curvature of the spine. He said there wasn't anything he could do for me, and just told me to 'swim a lot.' My back spasms continued, and in my earlier career as a cabinetmaker I would miss two or three days of work about six or eight times a year, when my back 'went out'. This continued for years. Then a good friend told me I should see a chiropractor. I got relief, and went from many years of daily back pain with major problems six or eight times a year, to rarely having back pain and only two major episode in twenty six years! The other thing that really impressed me was that the chiropractor was a warm caring person that treated his patients like they were his friends. I was so impressed with this chiropractor that I read more about it and discovered that chiropractic wasn't just great for back and neck problems, it was a form of health care that worked naturally with the body and did not use drugs or surgery. I was pushing forty and a single parent of three kids, so a career change was a difficult decision to make. With the support of my kids, though, I decided to go back to school. We moved to Iowa, they had to change high schools, and I enrolled at Palmer College of Chiropractic. After graduating with honors, passing National and Wisconsin Board Exams, I became a chiropractor. And I'm very glad I did, because I love what I'm doing! In 2005, my tenth year in practice, I completed a three year program and became board certified in chiropractic pediatrics. Chiropractic has a lot to offer kids and pregnant moms-to-be, and I'm very grateful that I am able to help them out. The summer of 2001 brought me into a new phase of my life, as my oldest daughter had a baby, and I became a grandfather! It is neat to see someone that I nurtured for so many years, doing the same with her own child. I now have two grandsons, one step grandson, and one step granddaughter, and I treasure my time with them. In 2010 my life changed for the better, as I met the love of my life, Joanne. I now have a new family, as she already had two sons, Luke and Tony, one now in high school and one in middle school. They are close in age to my two grandsons, and they all get along like brothers. It is very rewarding to have kids at home again. My main interests outside of chiropractic are family, the outdoors, and traveling. I enjoy hiking, canoeing, and bike riding. I like just getting out and enjoying the nature around me. I also still enjoy woodworking, although I do not have as much time to spend at it as I would like.
