He enjoys being outside, working in his yard, and nothing is better to him than a day at the lake with his family. He can still out waterski all of them (although he willingly admits they are better at wakeboarding and surfing than he is). His goal is to make a contribution and to live a life to the fullest and he wants to help you do the same. That is why he finds so much joy in helping people with the individual care he provides.
“My Experience with Dr. Awerkamp has been nothing but great! Having had hip problems all my life, I've seen several chiropractors and Dr. Awerkamp is by far my favorite! He's very gentle and I'll be forever grateful for everything he helps me with. I tell all of my friends about his awesome care from my ankles to my neck, He's fixed it!! He truly cares about his patients.”

"Dr. Awerkamp does a great job every time I have problems with my neck and back. In the last 5 years I have been in two wrecks. The first wreck I didn't use a chiropractor and had a really long and painful recovery. I relied mostly on pain pills and heat packs. For the second wreck I used Dr. Awerkamp and the recovery was much quicker. He saved me a lot of time from being bed and also from the high dosage pain pills that it normally took . Awerkamp Chiropractic is a friendly learning experience. I used heat the first time to help with the pain but I learned that ice, not heat needs to be used to reduce the swelling. You can feel of his desire to help and good integrity from just the first time you meet him. He's a great chiropractor and I would recommend him to anyone.”
