Meet Dr. Mark Quandt

Chiropractor Arden Hills, Dr. Mark Quandt“As a 5-year-old kid, I would go with my dad when he would see his chiropractor; I saw how the doctor fixed his problem. My dad went in bent over and came out standing up perfectly straight.”

Chiropractic Allowed Him to Keep His Scholarship

As a high school senior year, Dr. Quandt received a basketball scholarship but learned that he had an extra lumbar vertebra which was causing issues. He went to three orthopedists who all said that the extra lumbar vertebra would cause chronic trouble. “They told me I should just forget basketball.” At the suggestion of his father, Dr. Quandt decided to see his dad’s chiropractor. “The year was 1983, and my chiropractor was Dr. Nadig!”

Thanks to Dr. Nadig’s care, Dr. Quandt never paid a cent to go to college because chiropractic care allowed him to keep his scholarship. “Where would I be had I listened to those orthopedists?” After he earned a bachelor’s at Seattle Pacific University in 1987, he attended Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, Minnesota, graduating with his Doctor of Chiropractic in 1991.

Becoming the Practice Owner

In 2010, Dr. Quandt bought the practice from Dr. Nadig. Before that, he owned a business in Worthington, Minnesota for 12 years and sold it. Dr. Quandt enjoys helping patients get out of pain and back to doing what they love. He also is a member of the Gonstead Clinical Study Society and has taken more than 40 Gonstead seminars throughout the country.

Outside the Practice

When he’s not at the clinic, Dr. Quandt enjoys spending time with his two young daughters. He also likes outdoor sports, playing golf and working out.

Meet Dr. Joan Elder

Chiropractor Arden Hills, Dr. Joan AlderAs a young adult, Dr. Elder was an equestrian rider, doing English horsemanship. She injured herself riding. At that time, she had earned an associates in physical therapy and was pursuing a pre-med education.

Deciding on a Career in Chiropractic

To address her riding injury, Dr. Elder’s good friend at the time suggested that she see a chiropractor. She did and discussed her medical history with him. “He helped me out and encouraged me to become a chiropractor saying that I’d make a good one.” She found chiropractic particularly appealing because she got results for her back injury after several doctors were unable to help her.

Dr. Elder attended Life Chiropractic College in Marietta, Georgia and earned her Doctor of Chiropractic in 1981. She practiced for over a decade at Stucky Chiropractic Center in Eau Claire, Wisconsin then took time off to raise her two daughters Nina and Olivia. During those years, she worked as a biology teacher at Heritage Home School and a professor at Northwestern Health Science.

Returning to Her Passion

Now that her daughters are grown, Dr. Elder wanted to return to the career that allows her to help so many people each day. She practices the Gonstead Technique and specializes in pediatric chiropractic, women’s health and maternity care.

In Her Spare Time

When she’s not at the practice, Dr. Elder enjoys spending time with her family. She also likes to bike ride, sew, travel and enjoy family vacations. And, of course, she enjoys the benefits of the chiropractic adjustment. “I’ve been adjusted for close to 40 years and wouldn’t pass up getting adjusted for a million dollars!”
