Dr. Nick Dugger

DC

Dr. Nick Dugger joined the CVC team in April of 2020 following his graduation from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. Dr. Dugger obtained his Bachelors of Arts degree from Wartburg College in Biology where he was also a member of the Track and Field team, competing in the Heptathlon indoors and Decathlon outdoors. Dr. Dugger knew chiropractic was for him after suffering whiplash from a pole vaulting accident leaving him with horrible neck pain and headaches. After he saw a chiropractor he saw instant relief from his neck pain and headaches that had been keeping him up all night. Dr. Dugger believes everybody deserves to experience the relief chiropractic has given him! 

 

While in Chiropractic school at Palmer College, Dr. Dugger had the opportunity to serve our nation's veterans at the Central Iowa VA Hospital in Des Moines, IA where he worked together with doctors, surgeons and physical therapists alike to provide chiropractic treatments and care for veterans. Dr. Dugger's passion for his community can be seen with his involvement in the Cedar Valley Rotary Club and his time spent treating the athletes at Hawkeye Community College. Dr. Dugger has also taken on the role on the Board of Directors for the Iowa Chiropractic Society for the Northeast District as of 2021. Outside the office, Dr. Dugger enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife Carissa and black lab Margo, working out at Crossfit Kilo, and keeping up with Iowa athletics!
