Dr. Jacob Bartelt, DC, said he first got into chiropractic care as an intern for a local chiropractor.

“At Heun Chiropractic I worked many summers,” recalled Bartelt. “And, I have never seen results like I had seen in his office.”

“I decided to go to chiropractic school and that’s where I really fell in love with chiropractic. I fell in love with the neurology of how the body works, and how it is responsible for controlling, coordinating and adapting to everything in this life.”

Today Bartelt is a chiropractor at Acorn Chiropractic Club in Napa.
