Meet Dr. Ann Buenger

Helping Others in Their Journey Toward Health

Dr. Ann pursued her chiropractic education at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, where she graduated in 2002. While attending Palmer, she participated in a clinic abroad trip and found it inspiring to see the tremendous gratitude, hope and joy in the people they were blessed to serve during that time. To this day, seeing those same feelings in her patients gives her the motivation to continue seeking ways to serve and help them in every way she can.

A Shift in Mindset and Lifestyle

For Dr. Ann, chiropractic isn’t a quick fix, but instead a change in one’s mindset and lifestyle. “One of the ways I like to communicate health to patients is by using a puzzle analogy. I tell them that every time they do something positive for their health (such as exercise, drink plenty of water, eat a clean and whole food based diet, get adequate sleep, manage their stress, etc), they put a piece into their ‘health’ puzzle. And the more pieces they put in, the better and more complete the picture looks. I then tell them that the biggest piece of all is the chiropractic piece, because it allows the body to communicate and function at its most optimum, which makes every other piece more clear and effective.”

Outside the Practice

When she’s not at Abundant Life Chiropractic in West Des Moines caring for her patients, Dr. Ann loves traveling, doing anything active, spending time with her family and friends, cooking, reading, decorating, and she particularly enjoys outdoor activities such as running and being near the water. She is a member of the Iowa Chiropractic Society.
