Great Barrington Chiropractor | Dr. Van Wagner

I’ll never forget my first adjustment…

The Chiropractor To See In Berkshire County, Dr. John Van Wagner

Dr. John Van Wagner

“It was incredible,” continues Dr. John Van Wagner. “I’ll never forget that first adjustment. It was as if a huge weight was suddenly lifted from my shoulders. That’s when I decided I wanted to be a chiropractor.”

Dr. Van Wagner has been a native to the Berkshires his whole life, born and raised in Columbia County. He began his pre-chiropractic education at SUNY Cobleskill and the University at Albany where he studied the pre-chiropractic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, along with physiology and anatomy courses.

After completing his study there, he was accepted at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. During his four years at Palmer, courses included biochemistry, a major emphasis on anatomy and human physiology, X-ray, diagnosis, chiropractic adjusting techniques and patient care in the Palmer College Public Clinic. After graduating in 1998 Dr. Van Wagner worked as an associate chiropractor in a busy and diverse office in New York City. He returned to the Berkshires to establish his practice in February 2000.

“We love skeptics,” smiles Dr. Van Wagner. “I still remember the concerns and apprehension I had when I went to the chiropractor for the first time. So we make it a point to explain everything in advance, answer questions and attempt to over communicate. Patients appreciate that.”

Dr. Van Wagner is married to Julianna and has four daughters Madeline, Elizabeth, Charlotte and Jacqueline.
