Dr. Annie Pospischil attended St. Ambrose University, prior to graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA in 2014. She has focused her post-doctoral education on prenatal and pediatric chiropractic, and is certified to perform the Webster Technique. Dr. Annie provides care for the entire family and has extensive knowledge regarding nutrition, ergonomics and non-pharmacological health options. She emphasizes the importance of patient education and allowing her patients to fully understand the care they are receiving and advocate for informed decision making.

She, her husband Kelly, and their 3 children reside in the Westlake area and enjoy being active, spending time with family and friends, and being outdoors. As an owner of the Pecatonica Chiropractic Center, Dr. Annie takes great pride in caring for local families and sharing her love of chiropractic with the community!

Client Satisfaction: The health and well being  of each client is my number one goal.  I offer a safe, calm, non-judgmental space where each  client can receive the treatment they ask for  and a place that they can release the tension  they hold for the time they are with me. I tailor each massage to meet the individual needs of each client.  By listening to my client’s needs, I incorporate multiple modalities to their massage in order to reach the best results possible.  I also believe in educating each client on self-care tips to allow them to take a part in reaching their personal bodywork goals.

Motto: Healing Hands Do No Harm

I strive to expand my knowledge and experience in bodywork by attending workshops to enhance my skills and expertise.
