AMPED Member Focus


Dr. Nate and Sabrina DeJong – Highest Health Chiropractic

We are proud to bring you the story of Dr. Nate and Sabrina DeJong, who are located in Sioux Falls, SD! All of us in the AMPED community wish them the best of luck.

Q. What is your role at the practice?

A: Nate – Doctor

Sabrina – Office Manager/CA

Jagger – Assistant

Q. How long have you been open?

A: 8 months

Q. How many patients do you see per week?

A: 400

Q. What is your focus or specialty?

A: We specialize in neurologically based chiropractic corrective care using Torque Release Technique. We especially focus on pediatric and pregnancy care.

Q. What would you like to tell us about your practice adventure?

A: It has been quite an adventure so far. It all started back in school. The first time we were introduced to AMPED, Dr. Nate was in 5th tri and fully set on returning back to his hometown and associating. LAUNCH at Palmer Davenport changed all that. Shortly following that LAUNCH, Dr. Nate traveled and witnessed the offices of Dr. Viscarelli, Dr. Sims, and Dr. Kowalke. We were all-in after that.

Through school we were able to get tons of experience helping multiple offices through screenings, opening weeks, and precepting. Having the opportunity to gain those experiences really prepared us to open our own practice. It gave us confidence to know that we could in fact do it on our own, because we were able to help other offices grow!

We feel so blessed to have been able to open our office not only as a couple, but as a family. We have had our son, Jagger, by our side the entire time through our pre-opening networking, right through our opening week and now still, going into our 9th month in practice. To grow a practice from 0-400 visits per week in 8 months is a lot of work, and we are so thankful we get to do it as a family! Thank you AMPED for giving us the opportunity to do so!

Q. How has AMPED helped you?

A: AMPED gave us the tools, experience, and guidance to accomplish everything that we have. None of it would have been possible without AMPED. We are incredibly grateful for what AMPED has done for our practice and family.

Q. Do you have any advice for fellow AMPED members?

A: Stay engaged. It is easy to become complacent and settle for where you are. Staying engaged will keep you motivated and keep you learning so you can continue to grow your practice and help more people.

Q. What would you say to anyone considering joining AMPED?

A: Go check out offices. The only way you know if it is the right fit for you is to see it in action. Once that happens, don’t sit on the fence and jump all in!

Q. Where can people find you?
