About Pitts Chiropractic

Dr. Pitts opened his first clinic in 1996 in Denison, Iowa after working as an associate doctor in Sioux City for two years. Since 1996 Pitts Chiropractic has had several locations across western Iowa and eastern Nebraska and currently has a location in Harlan, Iowa. Dr. Pitts recently sold the Neola location and will practice full time in Harlan alongside his associate, Dr. Kintner. 

Pitts Chiropractic strives to provide the best care for people in southwest Iowa by using low force and manual manipulation techniques. They use a variety of techniques, most recently including Laser Therapy.
