Chiropractic Care

Here at Herrmann Family Chiropractic, we are committed to serving the families of the Des Moines metro area and Johnston communities by providing quality chiropractic care. We are dedicated to optimizing health and wellness through specific analysis of the spine and removal of nerve interference, allowing the body to function at its peak potential. As a husband and wife team, we work together to ensure high quality, specific chiropractic care for the entire family.

Convenient Location For Des Moines Commuters

We offer extended hours to accommodate everyone living in the greater Des Moines area. Our nearby location to Corteva (previously DuPont Pioneer), John Deere Financial, Iowa Bankers Association and many other Johnston employers is convenient for appointments before work, during a lunch hour and after work. We are also located next to Subway and Nuevo Mexico Restaurant, which makes it easy to have an appointment with us and also grab a bite to eat during the lunch hour. Our office is also located near a public bus transportation stop, which makes it easy for those that take the bus to downtown Des Moines to have an appointment before heading into work or after arriving back in Johnston at the end of the day.

Our Techniques

We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.

The primary adjusting techniques we use include:


We’re experts on a wide range of effective adjusting approaches taught at the Palmer College of Chiropractic, the birthplace of chiropractic.

A pregnant woman’s pelvis is constantly changing to accommodate her growing baby and prepare for the birthing process, which can lead to misalignment and compromised nerve function.

This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results.

After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.

Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.

While lying on your side, we’ll use our hands to deliver a quick contact to the upper bones of your spine. Your body does the rest.

This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.

While many health problems can be traced to the spine, wrists, elbows, shoulders and knees, other joints of the body can be helped.
