Dr. Rebecca Amstutz obtained a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University in 2005 and began working at a chiropractic office treating people and helping them live pain-free, healthier lives.
She loves and deeply respects animals and soon wanted to help animals suffering from pain and chronic health problems, as well as help owners maintain healthy happy pets. Combining chiropractic skills with a deep love for animals, she became certified in 2010 in Veterinary Spinal Manipulation Therapy (Animal Chiropractic) from an accredited program at Healing Oasis Wellness Center.
Dr. Rebecca Amstutz completed 226 hours of training, surpassing the 210 hours required by Minnesota state law to provide chiropractic care for animals. She is one of a handful of doctors in Minnesota registered with the Minnesota Board of Chiropractic to provide animals with chiropractic care. Additionally, she holds a certification and membership with the American Canadian College of Animal Chiropractic.
Dr. Rebecca volunteers at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center in the Animal Rehabilitation Services Department helping dogs recover from surgery or condition for competition. For many years she volunteered visiting hospital patients with her now departed dog Rex, who was a trained therapy dog. Together they enjoyed brightening the lives of others who were healing. She has been a volunteer chiropractor for people at the Susan G. Komen 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with friends, exercising, and traveling or relaxing.
Dr. Rebecca truly loves helping animals through chiropractic and seeing how much it means to their pet parent - it is a dream come true!
