Dr. Nichole Nygren
Dr. Nygren grew up under chiropractic care from her father, Dr. Terry Rainey, DC. Adjustments and good nutrition were the only way of life she knew.
She spent the entire summer in 1991 assisting her dad in his office. She watched him help patients of all ages, with a wide variety of disorders, get well. He restored their nervous systems with great adjustments, taught them how to eat healthy, how to live less toxic and put them on supplements to balance their deficiencies. Everyday watching this created a newfound passion inside her. She knew she wanted to become a chiropractor and healer like him. So her studies began...
December 1998 she graduated from Life University with a Bachelor in Nutrition and Doctorate of Chiropractic.
In March of 1999, she moved her family to Van Wert and joined her father's practice-- as a proud 2nd generation Chiropractor. She worked with him until his sudden death in 2001, at which point she took over his full practice and continued his work.
December 2008 she became certified by the Ohio State Chiropractic Board to practice acupuncture and began implementing it into the practice.
December 2018 marks her 20th year in practice and now her son is attending Life University, soon to be a 3rd generation Chiropractor!
Here is her first press release with her father in 1999.
Full Time Chiropractic Assistant: Jennifer McGarvey
Meet Jenn--you will see her smiling face everyday of the week.
She is mom of three great kiddos, loves painting, landscaping and exercising.
Years ago while living in New Mexico, she began her career in a chiropractic office. That is where her love and appreciation for chiropractic really began. She got to see patients literally transform as she watched their bodies heal, all the while learning so much about true health.
When she moved back to Van Wert she wanted to continue her family under chiropractic care and soon began as a patient here at NCA. Due to her previous chiropractic office experience and wonderful personality, she was soon asked to work part time! Then in 2017 she became our full time CA. She runs the front office and is here to assist you in any way!

Savannah is a senior at VWCS following the Bio-Med path. She has been adjusted since birth and practically grew up in our office environment. She is considering becoming a chiropractor and specializing in pediatrics upon graduation.
She helps file, puts supplements away, and fills in running the office for Jenn on Tuesdays or Fridays in the summer.
Future Dr. Tyler Nygren
