David L. Swope, Doctor of Chiropractic

I was born and raised in southern Iowa, graduating from Ottumwa High School in 1969. I served in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam Conflict and was honorably discharged as a sergeant in 1974. 

Returning to Iowa to continue my education, I graduated from Mount Mercy College, Cedar Rapids, with a double major in 1977. I then moved to Davenport, Iowa, to complete my education with a doctoral degree in chiropractic from Palmer College in 1981. 

Following my graduation from Palmer, I did an internship in Rockford, Illinois. I established my first practice by 1982 in North Liberty, Iowa, which my wife and children have called home from 1982 to the present. In 1987, Dr. Johnson and I, with two other chiropractors, founded CHCA, which was for many years the largest multi-doctor chiropractic clinic in the state. 

I specialize in workers' compensation and personal injury cases. I am certified in permanent impairment rating and am a fellow of The American Board of Disability Analysis. My professional activities include serving as founder and first president of the Johnson County Chiropractic Association, and my memberships include the Iowa Chiropractic Society and the American Chiropractic Association.

I have served on the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners as well as being a member of the Palmer President's Club. My interests include boating and playing farmer on my acreage, but my real joy is being with my grandchildren and family as much as possible.
