Dr. Hammes is originally from Sigourney, Iowa. He was first referred for Chiropractic care at age 16 because of a shoulder injury he suffered playing high school football. Headaches had been something that he dealt with for several years before that, and just accepted that he would have to deal with them for life. His coach recommended he see a chiropractor to treat the cause of the problem, rather than continuing to take Advil to mask the symptoms. His father had been under chiropractic care for several years, so it was easy to go with him for his first visit. After just a few adjustments, his shoulder was doing much better and the headaches went away too! Dr. Hammes learned at a young age the benefits of Chiropractic care, but didn’t fully understand how it worked. That is why after his symptoms went away, he stopped getting adjusted.
Dr. Hammes has a background in construction and this helped him to develop a greater understanding of the value of structure. A back injury in 2007 led him back to the chiropractor. During the physical exam, the chiropractor explained the way the body heals itself from above down inside out, and how the skeletal system protects and facilitates this process. He talked about how structure and function are related and how when one is impaired, it affects the other. This level of care and patient education is the reason that Dr. Hammes decided to enroll at Palmer College of Chiropractic.
During his time at Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Hammes was very busy, being a member of the men’s rugby club for several seasons. He also worked as the manager of the Palmer gym/recreation center. Taking nearly every elective Palmer had to offer, as well as some that they didn’t, Dr. Hammes is well versed in many techniques to accommodate all different types of patients.
Aside from caring for his patients, Dr. Hammes enjoys spending time with his wife, Alissa, his daughters, Korrah and Lola, and his dog Atlas.
I would recommend and refer Dr. Hammes anyone who is needing work done or would like to learn more about chiropractic services. About a year and a half ago I was get off of a forklift and bashed my knee on the fender of another one. Needless to say I could hardly walk after that. Finally, I decided to go and see Dr. Hammes and luckily he knew the right technique to get me taken care of. Also during my recent pregnancy I had horrible migraines. To my surprise it really does work! There’s even a special table for pregnant ladies which is amazing! He is very welcoming at every appointment I’ve had, along with the lady at the front desk. Not to mention that he has also adjusted my now 7 month old son. I could go on and on about how great of an experience I’ve had at Total Health Chiropractic but you should just set up an appointment and find out for yourself. Take the entire family! He can help all ages!!!
