Hello, I’m Dr. Ben Heun! I grew up on my family's farm in Fulton, Illinois where I learned the value of hard work, honesty and integrity. I first became passionate about Chiropractic when my local Chiropractor helped me overcome my severe back pain due to an injury I sustained while playing sports in high school. It fascinated me how knowledgeable he was about the body and how quickly he was able to help me feel better. I decided, I too wished to help people live a healthy pain free life.
At Palmer College of Chiropractic I studied various adjusting techniques and methods that accelerate the body's healing process, acted as a consultant to my peers in the clinic, and actively participated in the sports council club. I completed my residency at Active Chiropractic in Clinton, Iowa where my passion for chiropractic originated. In 2012 I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Palmer before moving to Ames with my wife where we started Back In Action Chiropractic.
My education didn’t stop there. I am a Certified Chiropractic Extremities Practitioner and a full body certified Active Release Technique provider. These extra certifications have allowed me to better diagnose and treat problems with the arms, legs and soft tissues that may be contributing to back or neck pain.
When I founded Back In Action Chiropractic, our mission has been helping you achieve your health goals. For some that may be returning to elite level sports, for others it may be getting through a day of work without constant pain or tension. Perhaps you simply wish to unlock your true health potential by ensuring your nervous system is functioning at its peak potential. When I’m not busy at work I enjoy coaching flag football, playing basketball, mountain biking, spending time with family and friends and leading the kids program, AWANA at our church. I look forward to meeting you soon and helping you get out of pain!
Highly recommend! Went into see Dr. Ben with hip pain ( so bad it was keeping me up in the night). He found exactly where the problem was and was able to relieve the pain! Really appreciate the professionalism and attentiveness. Thanks so much, Dr. Ben! Back in Action will continue to be my go to for chiropractic needs!
Great experience here! I would recommend to all friends, family, and acquaintances looking for a good clinic. Dr. Ben is a great clinician with a respectable bedside manner. Both him and his staff were very informative and friendly at each of my appointments. I came in with knee pain that had been bothering me for quite some time and now am completely pain free since visiting Back In Action Chiropractic.
Would highly recommend! I was suffering with back and hip pain due to pregnancy and since I’ve been going to Dr. Heun, I feel so much better! I also started taking my little girl in for constipation issues, and she has been going more regularly and without as much complaint. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, I’ve even been encouraged to bring my children in to play while I’m with the doctor! Love going here!
The best and would do anything for his clients! I was to the point of not being able to walk more than five steps, without bringing tears to my eyes! I couldn’t even sit in a chair! One night I was in so much pain, he even brought his kids to the office so that he could help me! Hands down the best, family oriented and truly cares about you!
Dr. Ben really cares about his clients! His chiropractic care has completely relieved my pain and he is friendly and professional person. I recommend Back in Action to everyone I know.
Dr. Ben is amazing, he really takes care of you and listens to your needs. His goal is to make sure that you get back to your normal self. He also sends out newsletters about how maintain good physical health. I love going to Dr. Ben and would recommend anyone looking for a chiropractor.
