Meet the Chiropractor

  • Dr.
    David Wipperman


    'As I was growing up, I always knew I wanted to work with my hands, and with other people. I was intrigued by the life sciences, nature and health in general . Chiropractic seemed to bring all these areas together for me, so I pursued a career in it. Through this wonderful drug-free healing art, I can help others achieve their maximum health potential , while making a positive impact on the quality of their lives. Every time a practice member walks out of my office, I want them to have a feeling of empowerment&a feeling that comes from knowing that each visit to us is actually a 'personal opportunity' to increase their bodies' ability to heal and regulate, 'says Dr. Wipperman. 'A far cry from traditional medicine , that tells you your body is weak and you need to take this drug or have that procedure done-or else. The human body is not a machine that occasionally falls apart and needs to be tinkered with, using drugs, and surgery to keep it going. It is a self-healing and self-regulating organism that, if allowed 100% of its self-healing power, can and WILL heal itself.'

    Dr. Wipperman employs a totally holistic and compassionate approach to healing much like that of the old-fashioned family physician. After practicing chiropractic for four years in Kansas, California, and Missouri, Dr. Wipperman founded Ballas Chiropractic Centre, a FULL-SERVICE family wellness practice in Creve Coeur. In operation since 1990, Dr. Wipperman boasts a loyal and diverse clientele ranging from a very local and citywide family practice member base, running the gamut from infants, toddlers and teens up to octogenarians.

    Dr. Wipperman feels that on-going professional education is essential to delivering the finest chiropractic care to his practice members and to help create the time-honored and often neglected interpersonal relationship between doctor and patient. With a BS in Human Biology from Kansas State University and Logan College and his Doctor of Chiropractic from Logan College of Chiropractic, Chesterfield, Missouri, one of the finest chiropractic schools in the world; and a member of the Chiropractic Leadership Alliance,International Chiropractic Association and World Chiropractic Association, Dr. Wipperman continues to attend a host of post-graduate seminars, workshops and trainings on an on-going basis. He also thoughtfully donates his time to local corporations and businesses conducting Health Fairs, Stress Screenings and Stress Management Workshops.
