Schubel Vision Elite’s Top 33 Chiropractors of 2017


Chiropractors are the only doctors in the world that are highly trained to detect analyze and adjust vertebral subluxations. Vertebral Subluxation exists now in the human population at epidemic levels due to today’s modern, stress filled lifestyle. These tiny misalignments in the spine create nerve function alterations that significantly affect the body’s ability to adapt and therefore express life optimally.

As Chiropractic’s message becomes clearer and as the mounting scientific research supporting this message continues to amass, more and more people are choosing chiropractic care as part of their normal everyday health care. Conservative and safe chiropractic care is helping more people to express their lives optimally without the invasiveness of drugs or surgery.

This list represents only a small fraction of the chiropractors and chiropractic advocates worldwide that are working hard every day to ensure that more people on the planet understand and avail themselves and their families to the innumerous benefits of regular chiropractic care.

The criteria used to create this list were subjective and based solely on the author’s observations as he traveled the planet in 2017 meeting some of the most dynamic and game changing chiropractic proponents worldwide.

With a smile, a compliment or the touch of her tiny hands, she loves to be that someone you will remember, either because she is blunt or bold in her actions, or surprising people by her ease at doing something people usually don't dare to dp -like kissing the flight attend for his birthday as the captain announced it.

She is crazy about Life because it is so beautiful, amazing and sparkling.  She  I went to live in Davenport, Iowa to study at “The Fountainhead of Chiropractic”, with the ultimate goal to be part of the Big Idea that there is nothing bigger than the power of that Universal Intelligence within you.
