I just want to introduce myself, my name is Leah Hubbard. To start off I'll give a little   background information about myself. My family has lived within the Manchester area for   the past 45 years. I grew up here and love the small town feel. I graduated from West   Delaware and went to Clark University for my undergraduate degree of, Bachelor of Science   in Biology. I got my Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College in Davenport, Iowa. I   married Chad Hood, a Manchester, Iowa native as well on March 1, 2014. I am loving every   moment of married life. We have a beautiful little girl named McKenna! She is a little   stinker, but I love ever moment and memory!  I can't wait to see what the future holds for   our family!

 Lifetime Chiropractic will remain to strive and help every patient that walks through our   doors. Your health care is our primary focus. Chiropractic care is a form of care that focuses   on patient wellness for all ages. I will strive to help you reach your highest potential.

 I will use the techniques included within the Palmer Package. A huge benefit to Chiropractic   is ART ( Active Release Technique) which is a muscle release technique. I am full body   certified in ART. Please do not hesitate to call the clinic or email for additional information.


I'm Dr. Missy Wessels. I was born and raised in Manchester, Iowa and attended West Delaware High School. I went on to receive my bachelors degree in biology from Wartburg College. After graduation, I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa where I earned my Doctor of Chiropractic degree. Outside of class and clinic at Palmer, you could find me interning in the sports rehabilitation department.

I focus on quality chiropractic care through full spinal adjustments and provide patients of all ages with a holistic approach to healthcare with wellness, exercise, and nutritional advice. Additionally, I incorporate movement based evaluations, Palmer package adjustments, myofascial release, extremity treatments, rehabilitation, kinesiology taping, and food intolerance testing. I value providing patients with the most up to date and effective research and care which is why I continue to pursue additional training. I am a member of the Iowa Chiropractic society and the International Chiropractors Association as well as a BIRTHFIT professional.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time outdoors kayaking, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, golfing, playing volleyball and spending time with family and friends. I value community involvement and am incredibly excited to give back and be practicing in my hometown of Manchester! Your body truly has an incredible potential to heal itself. The most amazing part of it is, here at Lifetime, we get to witness it every day. Don't ever hesitate to reach out or stop in and say hello!

Eat healthy, stay active, sleep well, breathe deeply and......LOVE LIFE!

 I am so excited to be part of the Lifetime Chiropractic family! My career has been based around healthcare and customer service, and I enjoy using  my expertise at Lifetime Chiropractic & Wellness. I am originally from Decorah and made the move to Delaware County to be closer to my boyfriend. Outside of my love of working in healthcare, I enjoy helping my boyfriend with his trucking business, being outside- some of my favorites are camping, kayaking, and 4-wheeling, and spending time with friends and family. 

 Please feel free to call me with any questions you may have at 563.927.9400.

 I am currently attending West Delaware High School in the graduating class of 2019. This fall I plan to attend Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wisconsin to pursue a career in Dietetics. In my free time I enjoy being with friends and family and doing anything outdoors like camping, fishing, and hiking. I've been here at Lifetime Chiropractic and Wellness since my freshman year in high school. Working at Lifetime has taught me many skills that I will need wherever my life takes me. It is such a privilege to see all of our patients grow.
