Meet The Chiropractic Essence Team
Meet The Founders
Dr. TJ Alger and Brean are the founders of Chiropractic Essence. They are both small-town Iowa natives who decided to make Council Bluffs home for their business. Dr. TJ makes his knowledge and passion for neurologically-based chiropractic care known throughout the community. He always knew he wanted to be in the health field, but with the experience in Exercise Science/Biology he received at Simpson College, where we graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree, he found a deeper passion for providing care. Growing up he was a multi-sport athlete, which he was fortunate enough to continue throughout his college career. Chiropractic helped keep him healthy on the field and in the classroom by allowing his body to function at its best. Due to that, Dr. TJ decided to devote his life to educating others about the tremendous benefits of this extraordinary field. He is a nationally board-certified Doctor of Chiropractic with extensive training and certification in the most modern techniques.
Dr. TJ graduated with Academic Honors and multiple Dean’s List achievements while attending Cleveland Chiropractic College of Kansas City. During his time at Cleveland he received extensive training in pediatric, geriatric, prenatal, and athletic care. Dr. TJ’s true passion is focused on families, shedding light on their health concerns and wellness goals. Dr. TJ enjoys spending time with his partner, Brean, who you will see at the office frequently. They are a family-first and competitive duo who take joy in community engagement, hanging out with friends, living an active lifestyle, as well as playing and watching sports.
