Dr. Eric Stroh, D.C., embraces a professional philosophy of non-invasive healing.
I believe you should try everything you can before you resort to medications or surgeries.
As such, he listens to his patients, treating them for their pain and injuries with chiropractic services tailored for each individual to address their unique needs.
“With chiropractic care, there is more freedom to perform active and passive therapies, and to look at things in a more holistic way,” says Dr. Stroh. “The body has the ability to heal itself—tears in joints in muscles or tendons—the body can fix those. We just have to align the body to allow it to do the job a bit more easily.”
Dr. Stroh’s commitment to healing extends to ensuring his patients get the quality care they need. To that end, he will refer patients to other health professionals such as massage therapists or acupuncturists if he feels it will benefit the patient and facilitate healing.
Says Dr. Stroh, “Helping people feel better and make improvements in their lives is what I am committed to every day.”
Dr. Stroh grew up on a small lake in western Minnesota. He attended high school in Underwood, where he played football, basketball and ran for the OTC Bulldogs track team.
While in high school, Dr. Stroh suffered football injuries and was involved in an auto accident. Mayo Clinic doctors believed his prognosis was poor and suggested he would never again have a fully functioning left arm. In fact, though the therapy for his injuries proved intensive, he was able to return to playing football and the total use of his arm with the help of therapy and chiropractic care.
Even before his own injuries occurred, Dr. Stroh was interested in healthcare. He attributes this to the influences of his mother, grandparents, aunts and cousins, many of whom were either nurses or physical therapists.
Dr. Stroh attended North Dakota State University in Fargo, where he studied pre-med and earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology. He went on to attend Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota, where he received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
After interning for several years, Dr. Stroh earned his license in 2013.
A healthy life includes a healthy balance between work and family. When Dr. Eric isn’t helping patients, he spends time with his wife, Megan, a Registered Nurse, and their 2-year-old son, Avery, while eagerly awaiting the birth of their second son in November 2016. In his alone time, Dr. Eric enjoys catching walleye, sitting in his deer stand, pheasant hunting, and wake boarding. He and Megan enjoy biking, hiking, and spending time with their child and dog, Emma.
