John D. Marlow R.N., D.C.

Dr. John Marlow is a graduate of the Northwestern School of Chiropractic in 1991.

He is also a registered nurse, so is able to draw on his medical knowledge in diagnosing and treating patients.

Dr. Marlow has treated:

  • Sports injuries
  • Back, neck, knee, shoulder and wrist pain
  • Pregnant Women
  • People of all ages: young children to the elderly
Dr. Marlow says:
     Many times a person comes to me with a special complaint-neck or back pain, for example.  Before anyone is treated, I take a thorough medical history.  During this time my most important role is to listen.  My registered nurse's training has honed my listening and observation skills-allowing me to serve my patients better.  What is the patient really saying?  How is she acting?  What's going on with him?
     Then I do a complete examination, and if needed, refer a new patient to get an X-ray, scan, MRI or other tests.
     When I have studied everything I have learned about the patient I then put together an unique and detailed treatment plan to make sure the patient gets the individual care they need to become well and whole again.
     I believe that Chiropractic care is an important part of a persons overall wellness.  Many people have regularly scheduled adjustments on a periodic basis.
