Dear Patients,
Too often it is the doctor who gets all the information on the patient and the patient gets little information on the doctor and practice. I would like to change that.
My given name is Alan Paul Juel and I am a 4th generation South Dakotan (my great-grandparents homesteaded near Vermillion). I went to Chiropractic College at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minnesota. I graduated in 1987. My household includes my wife, Dawn (a nurse), son, Taylor (managing a lab in Brookings), and a cat. I like to RV camp, ski, listen to music, exercise at Fitness Plus, and collect jokes.
I originally was inspired to be a Chiropractor because in my first career (as a Physical Therapist), I frequently found that spinal problems were the basic cause of the 'main' problem. I realized that I would be most effective when I was trained in balancing the spine.
I have chosen to devote my life to the healing arts because I know that it is the right thing to do. I enjoy working with people and seeing them making progress. One of the biggest problems of this era is arthritic conditions. Chiropractic can reduce the possibility of this. I know that the principle of Chiropractic (healing energy from within you) is correct. Chiropractic allows this energy to flow.
I believe with all my heart in how I practice and continually strive to improve it. I believe that I give an excellent service at a fair fee. I like assisting people of Rapid City to be as healthy as possible.
The whole purpose of this clinic is to provide a safe and healing place where I can assist people in their quest for health and wellness. What makes this practice unique is that I use a combination of methods to deal with you and your unique situation.
My personal promise to you is I will devote 100% of my attention and effort to get to the root of you condition. I will continue to investigate new methods that will allow me to be more effective. If you should need help beyond my skills, I promise to refer you to another expert.

To your health, naturally
Dr. Juel
