Meet the Doctor

Dr. Eric M. Fahrendorf, D.C.

Dr. Eric M. Fahrendorf was born and raised in Sioux Falls, and he is now serving the greater Sioux Falls community as a third generation chiropractor. Dr. Fahrendorf is honored to be following in the same footsteps as his grandfather, Dr. Lester M. Fahrendorf (1911-1962), and uncle, Dr. Donn J. Fahrendorf (1939-present).

Dr. Fahrendorf has an extraordinary passion for his profession, and he loves working with children, athletes, and family members of all ages. As the youngest of Dale and Patsy (McInerney) Fahrendorf’s three children, Dr. Fahrendorf enjoyed playing several sports, but he particularly enjoyed competing in football, basketball, and powerlifting.

Like his grandfather and uncle, Dr. Fahrendorf is a graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, MN, where he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic. Prior to graduating from Northwestern, he received his Bachelor of Arts from Augustana University and was a graduate of O’Gorman High School.

Dr. Fahrendorf enjoys being involved in the Sioux Falls community as a member of the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Rotary Club, and the O'Gorman Dakota Bowl Committee.

In Dr. Fahrendorf’s free time, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, especially watching his nephews compete in their extracurricular activities. He can oftentimes be found cheering on his beloved Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Minnesota Twins. Dr. Fahrendorf also likes to travel, with a quirky goal of visiting every state capitol across the United States. Additionally, he tries to attend as many country and rock-n-roll concerts as possible. You will not find a bigger Garth Brooks fan than Dr. Fahrendorf!

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!"

    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!"
