Meet Dr. Dale Poland

Russia or Chiropractic College?

Dr. Dale Poland

Dr. Dale Poland

Two years into being an undergraduate psychology major, Dr. Dale realized he didn’t want to go into the psychology field. He had money saved up from working and decided he would either travel to Russia for a few months or attend chiropractic college.

“I just had an epiphany one night. I felt like chiropractic college was the way to go. And I’ve never regretted that decision; I love the profession but one of these days I’d still like to go to Russia!”

Dr. Dale graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, Iowa in 1976. After graduating, he worked for a year with his stepfather, who was also a chiropractor. Then in 1978, he came to Wausau to set up his own practice, formerly known as Allied Health. It’s now Poland Chiropractic, which he is running with his daughter, Dr. Chelsea.

The Impact of Chiropractic

Dr. Dale has a very focused philosophy on what chiropractic is and what chiropractic can do for him, his community as well as the global community. “Chiropractic changes people’s quality of life and how they adapt to the environment. I believe chiropractic is the answer to our health care problems in this country.”

Wausau’s Partner in Health and Wellness

Dr. Dale earned his Wellness Certification through Dr. Chestnut’s wellness program. He also went through an Applied Spinal Biomechanical Engineering (ASBE) program and Dan Murphy’s Cervical Trauma course. He was previously a member of the Wausau Chamber of Commerce and has served on the board and as a director of the Wisconsin Chiropractic Association.

Dr. Dale is proud that his practice remains primarily referral based. He is thrilled to continue being his community’s partner in health and wellness.

Outside the Office

Dr. Dale has definitely got the travel bug. He’s traveled all over the country; he and his wife, Jane, hope to spend their 30th wedding anniversary in Alaska. Dr. Dale is an avid biker and loves athletics of any kind. He’s played and coached many sports throughout the years here in Wausau and has even sponsored a softball team!
