ABOUT Dr. Wiegand
DR. AARON WIEGAND
Dr. Wiegand has been providing relief to his community in North Phoenix and Desert Ridge for over 10 years. As a second-generation Chiropractic Physician, Dr. Wiegand and his team have been dedicated to helping people return to doing the things they love, Pain-Free as quickly as possible.
Rooted in scientific evidence, Dr. Wiegand integrates his background in Physiology from the University of Arizona to deliver care proven to be at the forefront of what’s safe and effective. His care is straight-forward and personalized to the patient using a combination of Chiropractic Adjustments, Modern Rehabilitation Techniques, and Acupuncture.
“I encourage my patients to take an active role in their own healing process.”, Dr. Wiegand describes his philosophy with treating patients. "I believe part of any doctor/patient relationship is providing the people you care for with the tools to be more independent and care for themselves.”
Dr. Wiegand believes each injury is an opportunity to identify areas that need attention and then bring them to a place that was even better than before the injury even happened.
“People always ask me what made me want to be a Chiropractor. I always tell them that pain keeps people from doing the things they love and being the best person for the people they love. I don’t know of a better service you can provide than returning a patient to a life they love with some simple relief.” - Dr. Aaron Wiegand, DC
B.S. (Physiological Science) - University of Arizona.
Dr. Wiegand began his science education as a Wildcat at the U of A. There he studied Biochemistry, Cellular Biology, Physiology and Anatomy as the foundation for the healing arts.
D.C. (Doctor of Chiropractic) - Palmer College of Chiropractic
Like his father, Dr. Wiegand followed in the family footsteps and attended the Chiropractic School that started it all. For 4 years Dr. Wiegand focused on Spinal Rehabilitation, Sports Rehabilitation, Diagnostic X-Ray and Health, and Wellness. He graduated as the Virgil Strang Philosophy Awarded to the student in each class exhibiting the most comprehensive understanding of ethics and purpose for a chiropractor in the Doctor/Patient Relationship.
C.C.S.T. (Chiropractic Certification in Spinal Trauma) - International Chiropractic Association
The rehabilitation and management of complicated cases like those after a Motor Vehicle accident require a special set of knowledge and skills. Dr. Wiegand completed this post-doctorate certification and uses over 100 hours of education in his everyday treatment plans.
S.F.D.N. (Dry Needling Certified)
After suffering a low back injury while performing a deadlift, Dr. Wiegand found relief with Dry Needling that was so fast and effective that he was able to continue seeing patients that day. Over the years Dr. Wiegand brought this burgeoning technique to get even faster results for his patients.
F.I.A.M.A. (Fellowship in The International Academy of Medical Acupuncture)
After witnessing the amazing results with Dry Needling, Dr. Wiegand also found that his patients were finding that they were more relaxed and even reporting better sleep after their treatments. After discovering that these were the common effects of Acupuncture, he dedicated a year of study to the art of Acupuncture and is currently the only Chiropractor in Arizona certified in both Acupuncture and Dry Needling.
