Meet the Office Staff

  • Lori Joyce

    Lori Joyce is someone who cares and wants to do what she can to make your life better!   Lori grew up in South Dakota and after graduating from Rapid City Central High School she moved to Southern California where she obtained a marketing degree and started her
    family.  With the love of the Black Hills and the slower pace of life Lori brought her family back to Rapid City embracing the opportunity to stay home with her three children.  Lori has been in management for several years and brought her skills to Nelson Chiropractic as the office manager in 2016.  She is a certified Chiropractic Assistant and she looks forward to supporting the
    patients with their health care needs. 

    “Dr. Nelson kept telling me how the nerves communicate with every cell and organ – not just pain. That reality is made very clear to me every day.” On November 24, 2018, Lori had a life-threatening fall down her stairs
    in her home. She ended up with a spinal cord injury and is paralyzed from the chest down.  After several months of rehab at the Craig Institute, she was able to return to Nelson Chiropractic in the spring of 2019. She understands more than anyone how important the
    spine is. It communicates with the brain and tells every part of the body what you want it to do. 

    “I am married with 3 beautiful daughters and a growing family who are so important to me.  And also important to me are the PATIENTS who come to Nelson Chiropractic!”

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Nelson,

    Thank you very much for adjusting Lanie and Jaylee. Lanie slept through the entire night! It’s a good feeling to know that their spines are in line and everything is functioning properly. We will be seeing you soon for a check-up.

    Thank you!"
