Diversified Chiropractic Technique – Chiropractic as we know it begin in 1898 under the development of D. D. Palmer. The Diversified Technique adjusts the vertebral subluxation complexes (VSC) (problems caused by restriction between vertebral joints and their ligaments, blood and lymphatic vessels and other associated tissues) of the spine and pelvis to directly affect skeletal joints, nerves and muscle function, while indirectly affecting visceral or organ function of the body. Diversified Doctors of Chiropractic are also trained how to adjust extraspinal joints of the limbs, temporomandibular joint (TMJ or jaw) and ribs. DeAnn Adams completed her Doctorate of Chiropractic training in this technique at Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, MN in 1998. Dr. DeAnn Adams is licensed in the state of MN by the Minnesota Board of Chiropractic Examiners (MBCE).

Dr. D. Adams' animal chiropractic focus is on Equine, Canine and Feline. She is registered with the MBCE.

Dr. DeAnn says she thought she wanted to be a Veterinarian as a teenager, but after observing and helping at a clinic one summer, she decided she didn't want to have to de-claw cats or put unwanted animals down.  Much later in life, she realized her dream of working with animals via her chiropractic training to do so. This has been most rewarding in the realm of dachshunds with disc problems that had them limited to their bed unable to rise on their own or others dragging their hind legs behind them (like a seal) to now being self ambulatory on all four legs.  As well as, the increased performance in both barrel racing and roping horses to improving the quality of life for arthritic cats.  Her golden retriever, Angel enjoys the benefits of chiropractic, as well.
