Dr. Carolyn M. Wanken, D.C.
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Carolyn Wanken graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in 1999 with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. She also earned her bachelors degree in Biomedical Sciences with an emphasis in human anatomy from St. Cloud State University. Dr. Carolyn successfully completed her Fellowship in Chiropractic Pediatrics with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) in 2002. This one year, 120 hour postgraduate course has provided Dr. Carolyn with the advanced skills and techniques to better care for children and pregnant women in her practice, proving her dedication to the children of this community. Her fellowship status was awarded by the ICPA and the Academy of Chiropractic Pediatrics, both international, academic organizations dedicated to the advancement of the chiropractic family wellness lifestyle. In 2009 Dr. Carolyn received a certificate in nutrition along with 40 hours of nutritional training.
In addition to being a member of the ICPA, Dr. Carolyn also has served as a chairperson on the Physicians Advisory Board to the National Republican Congressional Committee. She is also an ambassador to the Chiropractic Leadership Alliance, 2 time graduate of the Total Solution program, a member of the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association and the Hudson Chamber of Commerce.
Dr. Carolyn has received several awards and honors for her dedication to Chiropractic, her community and serving others. These awards include 2004 and 2005 Physician of the Year, 2004 and 2005 Ronald Regan Gold Medal for entrepreneurial leadership, and 2002 ambassador to the CLA.
Through her dedication to Chiropractic and serving pregnant mothers, infants and their families for over 6 years, Dr. Carolyn has earned training in several different adjusting techniques to equip her to adjust almost any individual no matter their circumstance. These techniques include, Diversified, Thompson Drop, Activator, Logan Basic, MC2, and many infant/child/mother specific adjustments to use during pregnancy to optimize the mothers and babys capacity to develop and function optimally. These techniques have been proven to decrease pain and discomfort to the pregnant female, decrease labor pain by up to 50%, decrease labor time by 34%, decrease the chance of trauma to the mom or baby during delivery and decrease the need for interventions during delivery. The techniques also help to optimize the babys position for better comfort for the baby and the mom, as well as helping the baby get into the best possible position for birth, limiting the chance of having a breech, transverse, oblique or posterior baby (which creates back labor).
Serving families and watching children grow to be a healthier generation is Dr. Carolyns passion. In her practice she also uses nutritional counseling and Craniosacral Therapy to further help practice members reach their full potential. She is also certified in the Webster Breech Technique which is a safe, gentle adjustment for mothers with breech babies helping the body free itself of restrictions within the pelvis and uterus. These restrictions may not allow the baby to turn properly, aligning itself for delivery thus resulting in a breech position.
Advocating a healthier generation of children, Dr. Carolyn teaches throughout the area to other Chiropractors and the community, including businesses, schools, home schools, churches, and moms groups on topics including the benefits of chiropractic, home birth, Bradley Method of childbirth, positive thinking, organization, nutrition, ADHD, and childhood ear infections.
Wanken Family Chiropractic uses the best technology to view your nerves and their ability to adapt to stressors. They are also the host of the annual international event called Kids Day America, a day set aside to celebrate children, health and safety. Dr. Carolyn is also the organizer of Wellness Moms America, a non-profit group dedicated to raising a healthier generation of children.
In addition to her passion for Chiropractic she also enjoys staying active on church committees including LATTE, AWANA, Mentoring, being a greeter and serving in the nursery. Her hobbies include expeditions (with the boys), reading, watching movies, shopping for home décor and crossword puzzles.
