  • Your Nervous System Controls Your Immune System
    Did you know that your nervous system controls and regulates your immune system? This is why patients whom get adjusted on a regular basis have a healthier immune system and a better quality of life. In football terms, the nervous system is the "quarterback" of the human body. You should get adjusted and give your nervous system and immune system a boost when you start to feel sick and/or on a regular basis to fight against illness . Call (605) 334-8000 to schedule a time to give your nervous system and immune system a boost. Your body will thank you for doing so. #FFCW #siouxfallsfamilychiropractor​ Read more

  • Steve Kerr: "...rehab, rehab, rehab..."
    There is a time and place for surgery, but it should always be sought out as the last resort for patients. All too often, surgeons over promise and under deliver in terms of the long-term health outcomes. Unfortunately, these surgeries come with very serious long-term risks. Conservative treatments, such as chiropractic, should always be the first priority for patients. Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr has issued a very stern warning to all men and women about the importance of natural health care over invasive surgical options. This warning should be taken to heart. “I can tell you if you’re listening out there, stay away from back surgery,” Kerr said. “I can say that from the bottom of my heart. Rehab, rehab, rehab. Don’t let anyone get in there.” If you're interested in experiencing how chiropractic care can improve your health and overall quality of life, please call (605) 334-8000 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Fahrendorf. An improved quality of life is waiting for you. #FFCW #siouxfallsfamilychiropractor Read more

  • How to Fight the Flu Naturally
    One is the best ways to fight the flu and preserve a strong immune system is to avoid sugar and processed foods. Processed foods are loaded with preservatives and fake sugar to help preserve the food (if you can even call it that) on the store shelves and in your kitchen cupboard for an extended period of time. It is all about money and profits. In addition, vitamin D is the closest thing to a panacea (cure all) in the nutritional world. The benefits of vitamin D supplementation range from preventing depression to cancer. Vitamin D is manufactured by your body in response to sun exposure. We South Dakotans, and Midwesterners for that matter, receive inadequate sun exposure in the winter, and when we do go out in the summer we are advised to wear sun blocking agents. The net result is that we do not get enough vitamin D and many of us are chronically deficient with very significant health consequences. You can have blood tests for your vitamin D status or you can, as I do, just take some vitamin D every single day. You should take a minimum of 5,000 Units per day of Vitamin D3. Not to mention, vitamin D is incredibly affordable. You can buy a 3 month supply for less than $20. #FFCW #siouxfallsfamilychiropractor Read more

  • Sioux Falls gets the attention of the Wall Street Journal
    We are extraordinarily grateful to be back home and practicing in a city that is growing, thriving, and prospering year in and year out. Sioux Falls is what it is today because of its people, their spirit, and their passion for leaving this world a better place than how they found it. For many years, we have been the beneficiaries of bold, intelligent, talented, and courageous leadership from our political leaders and concerned citizens. In addition, our winters just make us tougher and stronger. It goes without saying, our greatest days still lie ahead. #FFCW #siouxfallsfamilychiropractor Read more

  • Beating Food Addiction
    ​What the food industry is doing to us is nothing short of criminal. Eating fat does NOT make us fat. Eating SUGAR is what makes us fat. With the season of Lent upon us, this could be a great addition to any Lenten resolution. #FFCW #siouxfallsfamilychiropractor​ Read more
  • Putting Neck Pain Treatment Risks into Perspective
    Medical doctors are forced to practice under the "sick care" model in the United States due to the almighty dollar. It's unfortunate for the patient, but it is the realty of the times. In the end, it is the patient who suffers the consequences. Every single presription drug(s) and/or over-the-counter (OTC) drug(s) has side effect(s). Opioid drug addiction is an epidemic in the United States. However, there is good news! Patients have an alternative that does not destroy the human body from inside out. Chiropractors deliver and provide "health care" to their patients. There is NOT a safer form of health care than chiropractic care. Spinal surgery and the usage of NSAIDS/Aspirin/Opioids carry a MUCH LARGER health risk than any cervical adjustment. The facts speak for themselves. Discover chiropractic: the power that made the body, heals the body. It happens no other way. If you are sick of living a life with a decreased quality of life, do yourself a favor and give chiropractic care a shot. It will be a decision you will not regret. Fahrendorf Family Chiropractic + Wellness treats all ages and is accepting new patients. Please call 334-8000 to schedule your next adjustment. An improved quality of life is waiting for you. #FFCW #siouxfallsfamilychiropractor Read more
  • Have you heard of a spine transplant?
    You only get one spine, so you better take good care of it. There is no such thing as a spinal transplant. Just like everyone goes to the dentist for a routine check up appointment, everyone should be visiting a chiropractor on a routine basis to get checked from head to toe. We are more than happy to help pull you out of the metaphorical toilet when you are suffering from an accident or injury, but it is our long-term goal to keep you moving properly, so you do not fall back into the toilet again. Dr. Fahrendorf has open appointments this week and is skilled at assessing and adjusting not only the spine but all upper and lower extremities as well. Please call (605) 334-8000 to schedule your next adjustment. #FFCW #siouxfallsfamilychiropractor​ Read more
  • Studies Suggests Chiropractic Care Reduces Need For Opioid Prescriptions
    If you suffer from a chiropractic condition, the only solution is chiropractic care. It's that simple. Why are the pharmaceutical companies so strong and powerful? It is because they are in bed with our elected leaders and politicians. They are buying political access and favors. It's that simple. It is all about money and greed. Preliminary research is indicating that there is a 56%-57% reduction in opioid use when chiropractic care has been utilized in patient treatment. The public can either place their trust in the big pharmaceutical companies, or they can place their faith in the human body to heal itself, naturally, from inside out without the negative side effects that the big pharmaceutical companies do not want to discuss nor disclose. #FFCW #siouxfallsfamilychiropractor Read more
  • What the heck are pre and pro-biotics?
    How does one begin to live a healthy lifestyle? One takes proper care of their gut and what they place in their mouth and body. This includes proper nutrition (food and exercise) and supplementation. Roughly 70% of the human immune system lies in the gut. Doesn't it make sense to take proper care of your gut to improve the overall quality of life? Unhappy gut equals unhappy life; happy gut equals happy life. Please purchase quality supplements, such as pre and probiotics, from reputable manufacturers and suppliers. Metagenics is Dr. Fahrendorf's favorite manufacturer. Target, Walmart, GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, Walgreens, etc sell low quality supplements which should be avoided. Many of these low quality supplements contain heavy metals and fillers which are harmful to the human body. Please call (605) 334-8000 if you have questions. Dr. Fahrendorf is here to serve as your advocate for your overall health.#FFCW #siouxfallsfamilychiropractor​ Read more

Testimonials

Reviews From our Grateful, Happy, and Satisfied Patients

  • "After dealing with a sore shoulder and limited range of motion for several weeks, Dr. Fahrendorf did a few adjustments on it and it felt significantly better. He also helped improve my low back pain. I highly recommend Dr. Fahrendorf."
    Eric A.
  • "Dr. Eric does not mess around. From his thorough exams to his great adjustments, he is the man to get you feeling better. No matter if you are bothered by headaches, back pain, or just looking to take your health to that next level."
    Cory B.
  • "Dr Fahrendorf always goes the extra mile to make sure the entire family is not only feeling better, but that we're also performing at our best! I cannot recommend him enough!"
    Carolyn F.
  • "My patient experience with Dr. Fahrendorf has been all about amazing results, amazing care. A friend of mine recently mentioned he needed help, and I just started talking about Fahrendorf Family Chiropractic + Wellness. I described how much time Dr. Fahrendorf takes to listen, evaluate, and
    treat me. My friend commented he'd been to a local chiropractor who had patients lined up one bed after another, going right down the line... next, next. Health care today has become all about quantity, but, in Dr.Fahrendorf's case it is about QUALITY care. It's almost unusual for a doctor today to take any amount of time to care for a patient. Exceptional results, exceptional care!"
    Chris H.
  • "Dr. Fahrendorf is very knowledgeable and will go the extra mile
    for his patients. He is a great chiropractor, and he is an even better person. I highly recommend him!"
    Eric J.
  • "I came to see Dr. Fahrendorf with severe hip pain and shoulder pain. I left his office pain free! The difference in my range of motion and strength in my extremities after my treatment from Dr. Fahrendorf is mind-blowing. He's an absolute genius when it comes to extremity pain!"
