Dr. Dori Rammelsberg has provided chiropractic services in Dysart for 30 years as of October 30th and doesn't show any signs of ending her practice anytime soon.

"Dysart has been good to me," Rammelsberg said. "I've had great customers over the years. I remember people I had 30 years and still have to this day. I have fond memories too of people who have passed away. They are all wonderful people."

Originally from Blairstown, Rammelsberg was inspired to study chiropractic medicine from her uncle practicing in Belle Plaine and Dr. Rick Palmer in La Porte City. She graduated from Benton Community High School in 1982, afterwards graduating from Coe College in 1986 and Palmer College in 1989.

Dr. Dori Rammelsberg has practiced in Dysart for 30 years and hopes to continue seeing patients for years to come.

"I had always been a chiropractic patient since I was born," Rammelsberg said. "The chiropractor in Blairstown told my family to "bring that baby up as soon as you get it from the hospital." Both my grandparents were lifelong chiropractic patients as well."

Rammelsberg went into practice only a month after graduation, buying a retiring chiropractor's office and moved into the basement of the current building. She would later buy the whole office building and configured it to her needs. Her practice offers straight chiropractic services, some therapy, and works with seniors and farmers mainly.

"Dysart has been a wonderful place to raise my children," Rammelsberg said. "It allowed me to be a mom and a doctor at the same time. I could have them here and the patients were wonderful in letting me have my children run around here when they were young."

According to Rammelsberg, alternative health care has "come into its own" in the last 20 years. Concerns by doctors when she was in college eventually led to a lawsuit that changed patient's health care as they explored massage therapy, acupuncture treatments. Old prejudice may remain, yet Rammelsberg enjoys referrals from young professionals looking to avoid painkillers.

"I had always planned to be in practice for a long time," Rammelsberg said. "I hope to be in practice for another 10 or more years. It all depends on my health and helping around on the farm. I enjoy it here.
