Dr. Rachel Eken BS DC CVSMT
Dr. Rachel Eken is our on-site Chiropractor, Hand And Paw Chiropractic.
Dr. Rachel Eken graduated with a Bachelors of Science from University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point, followed by her Doctorate at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa. Towards the end of her studies at Palmer, she also enrolled in the Certified Veterinary Spinal Manipulative Therapy program at Healing Oasis Wellness Center near Milwaukee WI. She has been in practice in Colorado Springs for 7 years and focuses heavily on performance and conformation dogs AND their people!
She enjoys working with the dog show and performance community as her passion lies with serving those in the same venue she competes in.
Chiropractic in its simplest form helps ease pain and discomfort from minor injuries, arthritis in the elderly, or simply a tune up during crazy puppyhood. Yet beyond that it fine tunes the dogs body to give them the edge they need to be successful in any sport. Dog athletes, just like humans, need supportive care to continue performing at their peak potential.
In addition to running a multi-species practice, Dr. Rachel competes in conformation, agility, obedience, dock diving, and water work with her Portuguese Water Dogs and Black Russian Terrier.
