Dr. Derek S. Farmen, BS, DC

Derek PicDr. Farmen graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Health Science with concentrations in Kinesiology and Physical Therapy from the University of Wisconsin – Parkside. During his studies, he considered many different medical professions; however, after suffering a low back injury that was resolved with chiropractic care, he decided to dedicate his life to the profession.

Dr. Farmen acquired a Doctorate in Chiropractic from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he focused on developing skills in several techniques that are both safe and effective in correcting spinal dysfunction. He utilizes a combination of NUCCA upper cervical technique, Thompson technique for full spine adjusting, and Pettibon rehabilitation for postural retraining to alleviate spinal pain and restore proper spinal function.

Realizing that patients often present with more than just low back pain, Dr. Farmen began his current pursuit in acquiring a Diplomate Degree from the American Board of Chiropractic Internists (DABCI) along with becoming a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner through the Functional Medicine University. It is this whole body that led him to The Balanced Body Center, where he strives to optimize the health of others in order to improve their quality of life.

Dr. Farmen has been working closely with Dr. Arnone for several years and The Balanced Body Center is excited to officially welcome him to our office as the newest member of the Balanced Body Team.
