Dr. Cory Blanchard, DC
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Cory Blanchard’s passion is to help people stay active and live out their life goals through a natural and proactive form of healthcare.
Dr. Cory is a fourth generation chiropractor and has been getting adjusted his whole life. Being around this profession and growing up in this lifestyle, it was only natural for him to continue the family tradition and become a chiropractor himself. Dr. Cory received his undergraduate education at the University of Minnesota before transferring to Northwestern Health Sciences University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree as well as his Doctorate of Chiropractic.
Although he has been adjusted his whole life, Dr. Cory has not been without occasional aches and pains himself. Growing up playing sports and the everyday stresses of life have led him to have his own structural issues that he continues to work to correct with regular adjustments. It was not until he found out about Align Health & Wellness when he truly knew how that correction was able to be made and what it takes to achieve that correction.
In his spare time, Dr. Cory enjoys continuing to play hockey in the winters and golfing in the summers. He also enjoys spending time with his wife Mel and his fur babies Allie (chocolate lab) and Wallace (cat).
