Access to Health, Fort Collins Chiropractic Clinic
Dr. Ranae Beard
Dr. Ranae Beard grew up in South Dakota participating in 4-H activities, horseback riding, gymnastics and cheerleading. While in high school, Dr. Ranae injured her low back during gymnastics practice.
She went to her medical doctor who prescribed muscle relaxers that gave her no relief. Her mother took her to her chiropractor and he had her back to practice with no pain within 2 weeks! After her experiences with chiropractic, she decided to pursue a chiropractic career herself.
Dr. Ranae attended the University of South Dakota, where she received her per-requisites needed to get into chiropractic school. While a student at USD, Dr. Ranae was a cheerleader for men’s basketball and football teams and a member of the diving team. She then graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in 1999, where she received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree and her Bachelors Degree in Human Sciences. While at chiropractic school, she fell in love with playing soccer and continues to play multiple times a week.
Upon graduating from chiropractic school, Dr. Ranae moved to Fort Collins where she started her practice in February of 2000. She constantly strives to improve and update her knowledge in the field of chiropractic, having completed many post-graduate studies emphasizing the treatment and rehabilitation of headaches, low back pain, whiplash, pregnancy and pediatric.
Dr. Ranae believes in the incredible healing power of the body and feels that chiropractic can help each person perform at their optimal potential. She also believes it is important for kids to get their spines checked and adjusted (if needed) early in life.
