Learning More About Lanpher

Sep 19, 2018 10:30AM ● By The Hood Magazine

Lanpher Chiropractic has been in business in Sioux Falls for many years and was founded by Dr. Rob Lanpher. Dr. Lanpher went to USF and then completed his Chiropractic degree at Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, IA. His daughter Dr. Christine Duncan has now joined the clinic as a Chiropractor and Acupuncturist. She also went to USF, and then completed her Chiropractic degree at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minneapolis, MN, where she also completed her Acupuncture Certification.

Children are a big part of the patient base at Lanpher Chiropractic. Dr. Lanpher and Dr. Duncan treat babies as early as one week old and have amazing success with many different issues: colic, spitting up, gas, poor digestion, sleeplessness and torticollis (inability of baby to turn their head both directions) – to name a few.

As childhood allergies are getting more and more prevalent, the need for accurate and non-invasive testing measures is becoming more necessary. Dr. Lanpher and Dr. Duncan both offer Applied Kinesiology Non-Invasive Allergy Testing. This can be used to determine what foods, chemicals and elemental items you or your child could have a sensitivity to. After these items are assessed, the doctors can then recommend natural supplements to support, heal and restore your body.

Nutritional counseling is a specialty that Dr. Lanpher and Dr. Duncan both use to serve their patients. They are highly trained and knowledgeable about which vitamins, minerals and herbs help with certain conditions. Their unique approach of using Applied Kinesiology to evaluate your needs really sets them apart! The clinic believes in homeopathic and quality products to reach that goal of total body wellness.

Treating couples looking to become pregnant or that are pregnant is a special passion of Dr. Duncan’s. She can assess their current nutritional state, recommend any necessary detoxification measures and nutritional support to help them increase the chances of conceiving, and then support them throughout their pregnancy as well.

 Dr. Duncan is also very passionate about her acupuncture practice. It is an ancient technique where hair-thin needles are inserted into specific points on the body to help prevent and treat illness. It is very complimentary to Chiropractic care, and really provides a lot of emotional and physical relief. Many patients that have dealt with anxiety issues and depression gain monumental relief through acupuncture. Some other conditions that Dr. Duncan has had great results with are: seasonal allergies, headaches/migraines, addiction therapy and smoking cessation and digestive disorders. The number one question she gets asked is to clarify whether or not acupuncture hurts, and the answer is: not often! The most common comment she receives from her patients is, “I would have never thought getting so many needles put in me would be so relaxing!”

Dr. Lanpher and Dr. Duncan are always happy to take consultations over the phone and answer any questions you may have about their techniques and how they could benefit you. They are a friendly, family run clinic with a passion for healing.
