Dr. Megan Kussmaul

By Audrey Posten, North Iowa Times Editor

There’s a new doctor in Marquette. Beginning March 1, Dr. Megan Kussmaul will take over at Lund Chiropractic, renaming the practice Primitive Health Chiropractic and Wellness Center.

Kussmaul is a Prairie du Chien native who now lives in Mount Hope, Wis., with her husband and two children. She attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, then graduated from the Palmer School of Chiropractic in 2011. For the past five years, she’s practiced in Boscobel, Wis. 

Over the summer, Dr. Kari Lund, who opened Lund Family Chiropractic at 129 North St. in the fall of 2015, after practicing for nearly 20 years in Prairie du Chien, floated the idea of Kussmaul either partnering with her or buying the practice.

With the practice she was working at in Boscobel in the process of being sold and Lund looking to do something different, Kussmaul said now was a good time to make the change.

Chiropractic care has been part of Kussmaul’s life since she was little. 

“My family had been taking me since I was a baby,” she noted. “I was colicky.”

When she was 8 or 9 years old, Kussmaul’s family was involved in a car accident. Her injuries necessitated additional trips to the chiropractor.

“It made a difference, and, from then on, I wanted to be a chiropractor,” she shared.

Kussmaul said both the practice and the rustic building that houses it are a good fit for her.

“This is right up my alley—the wellness aspect,” she commented. “The building has so much potential.”

According to Kussmaul, she and Lund practice and adjust similarly. She plans to continue the muscle testing and soft tissue work Lund utilized. Lund will continue with her nutrition techniques and essential oils will also still be offered, Kussmaul added. 

Down the road, she’d like to incorporate acupuncture, massage and yoga into the business. In addition, Kussmaul said she hopes to offer classes and events. She’s even been in talks with the midwives in Prairie du Chien to work with one another. A summer blood drive is also in the works.

Kussmaul said she welcomes new patients and offers free consultations.

“I love working with babies, kids and families,” she stated. “I love helping people. I love patients’ faces when they feel better, that it helps. I love seeing the changes, especially with kids. Kids are so resilient.”

The natural health and wellness aspect of chiropractic is also important. Chiropractic care is about much more than relieving aches and pains, Kussmaul said.

“With everything that goes on in the world, people have to look at taking care of themselves in a more preventative aspect, before they get sick,” she explained.

The business hours at Primitive Health will be Mondays from noon to 6 p.m., Tuesdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Wednesdays by appointment, Thursdays from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturdays by appointment. The office can be reached at (563) 873-5422.
