Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Jacob Lesher graduated from the University of St. Thomas and received his Doctor of Chiropractic from Palmer College. He has been serving patients in the Eagan, Mendota Heights, and Dakota County area for eight years. Dr. Jacob was inspired to seek a career in chiropractic after being exposed to chiropractic at a very young age. Seeing his father treated for many chronic back issues he had to deal with at his job as a service technician for large medical equipment. This then became a true inspiration. When a chiropractor came and spoke during his AP biology class in high school, he thought it was so cool how the body could be affected through chiropractic therapies. He enjoys getting people back to doing the things they love and teaching them now to strive for physical goals they didn’t think was possible. Dr. Jacob has particular interest in active care and corrective exercise. He loves using body mechanics and functional movements to not only work through issues but improve performance. Dr. Jacob utilizes techniques in physiotherapy and rehabilitative exercise, as well as several forms of myofascial release and strives to deliver the highest level of care to his patients, so they can work toward and accomplish their health and wellness goals.
Dr. Hoppe grew up in Thiensville WI (outside of Milwaukee) however, born in Adak, Alaska. He has always been interested in performance, human health, and the complexity of the human body. As he progressed through the chiropractic curriculum at Northwestern Health Sciences University, he spent extra time learning about clinical nutrition/functional medicine, functional neurology, muscle testing, and rehab techniques from world renowned practitioners to better serve his future and current patients. He is enthusiastic about educating and offering natural health care to his patients and the community.
Dr. Hoppe loves spending time with family; wife Maggie, daughter Lola, son Harvey, and son Winston. He and his family attend River Valley Church.

What to Expect
During your 1st visit, our providers will hear the story of what brings you in, perform a new patient examination to determine the root cause of your problem, and briefly summarize what was found.
The examination consists of motion tests, palpation, reflex testing, and muscle strength, to help identify dysfunction in movement patterns and poor muscle engagement.
2 Report Of Finding
During your second visit, your provider will recap what was found in the examination, discuss a solution, review what your personal contribution to care will be, and begin treatment on that day.
3 Daily Appointments
On each subsequent visit, our providers will perform routine assessments to ensure you are track with your treatment plan and provide treatment.
Treatment visits typically consist of a combination of:
- Chiropractic Adjustments: restores, maintains, and optimizes human function by eliminating interference within the joint and soft tissue thus restoring the synergy between your joints, nerves, and muscles. Chiropractic adjustments are only available during sessions with a chiropractor.
- Integrated Muscle and Joint Therapy (IMJT): an advanced, active form of soft tissue treatment that effectively integrates the mind, muscular, skeletal, and neurological systems to achieve optimum balance throughout the body. IMJT is a patented technique available exclusively at LifeClinic.
- Rehabilitation: carefully selected exercises and activities used in a specific sequence in order to reinforce changes made with the adjustment and IMJT. Rehabilitation retrains the body’s “movement habits.”
