Dr. Daniel Daly
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Dan Daly graduated from Luther College and received his Doctor of Chiropractic from Logan College of Chiropractic. He has been serving patients in the South West Metro including Chaska, Chanhassen, Eden Prairie, and Shakopee for 6 years. Dr. Dan was inspired to become a Chiropractor because helping people has always been a top priority, along with health and wellness. Chiropractic was a great fit to help people become the best version of themselves naturally, without the aid of pharmaceuticals. He enjoys getting to really know his patients and what drives them as well as seeing the joy of his patients when they are reaching and surpassing their own goals for wellness.
Dr. Dan was recently married in October of 2020 and three step kids came along with the package deal. Dr. Dan is also expecting his first child in September 2021. He enjoys spending time with his family, working out, hanging with friends, making sure he has the best-looking yard in the neighborhood, and sometimes if time permits playing video games. Dr. Dan has an interest in helping people exceed their potential by being the best version of themselves both mentally and physically.
Dr. Shane Wernke
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Shane grew up in a small town on the West Side of South Dakota, so naturally he loves the outdoors and will play just about any sport. He attended the University of South Dakota, where his fascination with human movement began while completing a degree in Kinesiology- Exercise Physiology. During sports, Dr. Shane had his occasional encounters with low back pain, but it was not until he was a strength coach for a high school track team that he had his first run in with debilitating pain. During that time, he sought treatment from a chiropractor who, not only relieved his pain, showed him how to change the way he moves to prevent reoccurrences! This ultimately led him to enrolling at Northwestern’s Doctor of Chiropractic program. He graduated in 2019, and now takes pride giving patients the same relief and education he received. His primary focus is helping people identify and reach their health and fitness goals. Dr. Shane subscribes to the belief that we are first, creatures of movement, and second, have been provided with the means for a natural healthy life and natural healing. He considers his primary purpose to demonstrate to his patients the power of movement and the natural healing arts to optimize their quality of life. He lives in the metro area with his girlfriend Tiffany, their cats, and the real boss, Wrigley, their Golden Doodle! Whether he’s in the squat rack, on the basketball court, or you need to reach out via email, feel free to ask Dr. Shane to help you with any of your health or fitness goals!
