Welcome To Discover Chiropractic and Acupuncture!

Dr. Nanninga is committed to providing the very best service and cutting edge resources to his patients through continued educational training in all areas related to chiropractic and acupuncture care.

Dr. Nanninga was born and raised in LeMars, Iowa. He was very active and played many sports as a young kid and throughout his college years. It was a high school football neck injury that led him to his local chiropractor’s office for treatment so that he could return to the sport he loved without continuing to suffer chronic neck pain throughout the season. Then, as his college baseball career (Minnesota State, Mankato) was coming to a close and while reflecting back to the relief and role chiropractic care had played in his life he decided to further his education and become a Doctor of Chiropractic so he, too, could help change lives. In 2007, Dr. Nanninga graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. That summer (2007) he opened Discover Chiropractic and has been serving patients throughout the greater Des Moines area and beyond ever since.

Dr. Nanninga has extensive training in modern acupuncture and many chiropractic and physiotherapy techniques. He specializes in the “specific prone” technique. He also uses his foundational training in Gonstead, Diversified, Extremities & Zone Technique.

Dr. Nanninga is a regular speaker at local and national chiropractic conferences. He is a member of the Iowa Chiropractic Society, the Acupuncture Society of America and the Zone School of Healing.

He and his wife, Kimberly, live in Johnston with their three children Miles, Maggie and Marley. In their free time they enjoy being outdoors, boating, traveling and spending time together as a family. Outside of the office, Dr. Nanninga is a member/owner of a national chiropractic group called Pinnacle Chiropractic System that teaches fellow colleagues how to establish and run a successful, service-based office built on referrals.

Dr. Nanninga is committed to providing the very best service and cutting edge resources to his patients through continued educational training in all areas related to chiropractic and acupuncture care.



You will have a 1 on 1 visit with the doctor to discuss your health concerns and the reason for your visit.

After your initial health consultation, we’ll perform a complete & comprehensive chiropractic exam.

A series X-rays may be needed to allow us to clearly determine a proper care plan. X-Rays provide us with an objective diagnostic tool that will show us the position of the spinal bones, as well as the quality of the spine and safety of adjusting it. We also use X-rays to determine how long a spinal condition has been developing.

Report of Findings
Your report of findings will be scheduled the day after your Initial Consultation. This will allow for your doctor to study your exam findings, at which point we will share the results that we found with you. You may invite anyone in your family to accompany you, if you choose. Your Report of Findings includes a detailed analysis of what you need in order to solve the problem that brought you into our office and what can be done in order to assure that it won’t happen again. We consider your current lifestyle choices, goals for the future and challenges that are standing in your way. This is why our recommendations are extremely comprehensive and have the chance to be the solution that you have been seeking to find.

Our entire staff strives to keep waiting times to a minimum, so we ask that all patients be prompt for their appointments so we can stay on track. Your adjustments will be given by the doctor, then anything else done during that visit will depend on the doctor’s recommendations. Stretching, exercise instruction, or other advice, may be given as part of the doctor’s plan for you. Questions are not only welcomed, they are encouraged. Knowledge is power.

We consistently update and customize your wellness programs. The foundation for our overall health is based on proper spinal alignment, nutritious foods, regular exercise, high quality supplementation and a variety of stress relief techniques.

Dr. Nick always listens to what you are feeling and finds the subluxation that is causing it.

I have been living with chronic neck pain and headaches for years. I have seen several chiropractors, pain specialists, spine specialists and a neurologist over the last 30 years. I walked into Discover Chiropractic a little over a year ago, expecting the usual... twist my head left then right, push super hard on three places down my back, then leave feeling, usually, worse than when I walked in. Dr. Nick is nothing like that. I appreciate that he took the time to listen to me and he came up with a plan that really, truly helps me. I realized that I not only found a chiropractor who does an amazing job keeping my neck and back aligned, but Dr Nick and Shelley are both very personable, accommodating, compassionate, caring people. I went through a difficult time last winter and they checked in with me to see how I was doing and still if I don't make in for a week or two, they reach out. Completely above and beyond. I could not be more satisfied with the care I receive. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

We're long-time patients and have all of our kids adjusted here as well. Dr. Nick is fantastic with the kiddos - they've all be going to him since they were 6 weeks old. His caring, patient approach is perfect for little ones. Recently, we struggled with our infant and her growth. We had been seeing many doctors for different aspects of her illness, but she really wasn't improving until Dr. Nick stepped in. As soon as she started treatment, she went from 12% on the growth charts and throwing up every day to a healthy, happy baby eating solid foods and learning to crawl. Dr. Nick changed my daughter's life and we are forever grateful. Do not hesitate to use this provider!

Dr Nanniga's care is what keeps me moving. I am a believer in chiropractic care. Wish there were more chiropractors practicing the specific prone technique. It works with the least pain recovery time after adjustment.

I have taken my daughter to 4 different chiropractors in the Des Moines area over the last 20 months and I was never happy or saw the results we were looking for until we found Dr. Nick! With his adjustments I can actually SEE progress and improvement in my daughter. His knowledge and skill stands out- I would recommend him to all. And Shelley is fantastic too.

Always makes sure your comfortable before he starts and then entire time you are on the table. He explains everything every well and always wants to make sure you understand that everything will be ok.
What has my experience been like with Dr. Nick? He has been a Blessing in my life. He has provided me with a better quality of life. It is hard to find someone that genuinely cares for your well being. Dr. Nick has shown this to me each time I come in. He listens and learns how to adjust your body to your specific needs. He is a true Healer…and he is Chicago Cubs Fan!

Conditions Treated

Dr. Nanninga utilizes a gentle, specific adjustment technique that is effective for patients of all ages.

The chiropractic adjustment relieves pressure on the nerves around the spinal cord, allowing these nerves to function properly.

As long as the body’s nervous system is free of pressure and interference, the body can work at its optimal level.

Dr. Nanninga has excellent results helping people recover from sickness, disease, and disability while minimizing the use of drugs and surgery in their lives!
