Meet Your Chiropractors of Belvidere IL
Dr. Trent Hippard
Certified Chiropractic Wellness Lifestyle Practitioner (C.C.W.P)
Twenty-one years ago, my life was blessed with a brother named Jonathon. An individual that has left so many warm impressions on my heart and has changed me for the greater good of others. God used Jonathon to teach me patience, understanding but the biggest one of all compassion. Jonathon was diagnosed with multiple labels such as autistic, bipolar disorder and mental retardation. Labels that leave a person of understanding; misunderstood and confused.
As I ventured through my many years at Chiropractic College I always kept in the back of my mind how I could help Jonathon. Not only him but other precious children and their families like ours. Through many tough challenges he faced, chiropractic seemed to be the hope that was missing in Jonathon’s life. Within months of providing chiropractic care for Jonathon, I began to see what was once a dim light in his eyes and a lifeless body, start to emerge into a kid shining brightly and a body full of potential. What was once a struggle for him like speaking complete sentences now was an everyday phenomenon. Though chiropractic care does not TREAT or CURE diseases of the body, it does offer a better way for it to function, heal and thrive in a state of optimal health through a clear neurological connection between the brain and the body.
Chiropractic has given me more than a job or a career to do in my life, it has given me the gift of experiencing TRUE Health for myself but it also has given me the ability to share that gift with the ones I love.
“Health comes from within” was a bold concept but I trusted it for all I knew it couldn’t hurt Jonathon but only help him. Trust the Power that made the body for it is the Power of perfection. Albert Schweitzer, M.D. said it best:
“Each patient carries his own doctor inside of him. They come to us not knowing that truth. We are at our best when we give the doctor that resides within each patient a chance to work.”
Love what you do and do what you love and do it better than anyone else.
Dr. Amy Hippard
Webster Certified Chiropractor
Dr. Amy was always an active child growing up. She started taking gymnastics lessons at the age of 2 and was competing at a high level by age 7. Everything was going well until she started having knee pain, heel pain, wrist pain and low back pain, which is when her mother took her to a chiropractor. While under care she was intrigued at how amazing the body was and how chiropractic had saved her gymnastics career. That is why at age 7 she decided she wanted to be a chiropractor. She wanted to help individuals be able to reach their potential and dreams, just like her chiropractor helped her.
Dr. Amy graduated from Central Michigan University with a bachelor degree in exercise physiology and pursued her dream, completing chiropractic school at Life University. While in chiropractic school she gained a deeper knowledge on the true and amazing ability for the body to heal itself by removing the interference to the nervous system. Dr. Amy has a great passion for educating and adjusting the whole family, especially pregnant moms and kids of all ages. She is certified in the Webster technique, which is specific to pregnancy.
Prior to Wellness Tree Family Chiropractic, Dr. Amy practiced in Minneapolis at a highly focused pregnant soon-to-be mommies, infants and other family members, so she will fit in just perfect at Wellness Tree.
Dr. Amy is originally from Michigan, however, has traveled and lived in many different places. She is so excited to serve in the Belvidere community with her husband Dr. Trent. Her passions are chiropractic, family and friends, hiking, exercising, and traveling.
