My interest in health and chiropractic was first developed during my childhood after being cared for by my uncle, a chiropractor in Carroll, IA. Witnessing first hand how his care helped my family heal from aliments ranging from my dad’s back pain, my headaches, and my sister’s sinus congestion opened my eyes to the amazing power of chiropractic. As I progressed through school my passion for chiropractic and the body’s ability to heal became more engrained after witnessing dozens and dozens of patients start to heal after they were told they would have to live with their issues.
Upon graduating from Palmer, my wife Ali and I, knew we wanted to share 0ur passion with a community where we could have a direct impact on the health of that community. One of the most common questions we are always asked is, “why Granger?!” To us, just like most of you, Granger resembled everything we loved about our small hometowns of Glidden and Templeton. We both loved growing up in a small town where we knew and could trust all of our neighbors and felt that pride of community. Since moving here, we have been blessed with our two children, Greyson and Emmarie, and are excited to raise them in this community.
In 2012 we opened the doors to Janning Family Chiropractic, bringing a natural and drug free health care option to the W-G community. My passion for helping kiddos, pregnant mothers and growing families was developed after the birth of our son Greyson. By caring for him since birth, we have been blessed with an incredibly healthy child and are passionate about sharing that with our community.
Many people seek care in our clinic for varying issues ranging from lower back problems, headaches and neck pain. However our patients have found that chiropractic care has been effective for a variety of their health issues varying from allergies, colic, and ear infections to attention concerns and much more. The goal of chiropractic care is to allow the body to communicate with the brain at 100% optimal function. Unfortunately due to the cumulative effects of stress to our nervous system, this communication system starts to become altered. Simply put, stress overwhelms our ability to adapt causing interference in our natural healing capabilities leading to symptoms and disease.

I became a dedicated patient to JFC after some injuries in high school. Before working at Janning Family Chiropractic, I never knew all the benefits that came from an adjustment. It amazes me everyday how the body works. My favorite part of working at JFC is hearing all of the success stories from patients young and old. Chiropractic care is for everyone. Since starting at JFC in November of 2015, I have seen major improvements in my life as a whole. I’m thankful for the opportunity to share all the amazing benefits of chiropractic care everyday.
Dr. Janning’s wife Ali joined the Janning Family Chiropractic team formally in October of 2018, but she has been a part of the clinic since it’s infancy. Her background is in the field of social work. She uses those skills, such as ensuring individuals feel cared for and creating a positive environment in her current role as the clinic’s office manager.
I am so excited to be a part of the Janning Family Chiropractic team! Health in general has always been a passion of mine. Before jumping on board, I was thinking about how I could be a part of this idea of “spreading health”. In seeing and hearing a lot about illness over the years, I wanted to be on a mission to help more people experience health and happiness. Joining this clinic gives me the opportunity to see how chiropractic can change lives, and to see how health can spread throughout our community. I feel so blessed to get the chance to work on better serving people and living out this health spreading mission each day!
Ali’s chiropractic story:
I honestly never grew up with chiropractic and couldn’t even tell you what it was until Chris introduced it to me. You can say I got very lucky! I wish it was something I understood much earlier in life. Learning about chiropractic and now being a chiropractic patient has made a huge difference. Whenever an opportunity arises, I love talking to people who might not know much about this amazing profession because I’ve been there. I know now that it can add such quality to life and everyone deserves that! I feel better, am less stressed/anxious, and have more energy when I receive chiropractic care. I have also seen it help me feel my best throughout two pregnancies. Lastly, I can’t imagine our kids not receiving chiropractic care. It’s what we turn to when trying to keep them happy and healthy and it’s what we depend on when they are not feeling their best or become ill. I’m so thankful for chiropractic and the quality of life it brings us.
