Meet The Team

Chiropractor Heather Freedlund D.C.

Chiropractor Winnebago IL Heather FreedlundWelcome to our family. I am so happy you have taken this step to a better life for you and your family.

My husband Jon and I started Freedlund Family Chiropractic & Nutrition in January 2001 with a vision and a lot of prayer. We knew that people wanted to be well and they have no idea how chiropractic could help them. We set out to teach people how they could live better physically, mentally, and socially with chiropractic. We started teaching as many people as possible and the word started to spread.

You showed us you were definitely looking for another option to keep your family healthy. You did not want more drugs or surgery. The more we have taught, the more we are amazed at how many people have made a decision with their families to use chiropractic to live better lives.

When you sit in our office you will hear many stories of how people's lives have been improved. Thank you for starting your journey today. Whether you are in good health or dealing with a specific condition we will do our best to help.

I am always available and would love to talk to you. I pray every day that God will bring the people to me who I can help. I am glad you are here. Please, tell your friends and family about chiropractic, they are searching too.

God Bless.

Chiropractor Amy Hershberger D.C.

Chiropractor Winnebago IL Amy HershbergerRecently, I was offered a "job" at Freedlund Family Chiropractic & Nutrition. This makes me laugh and reminds me God has a sense of humor. Why? As a high schooler I had the unique opportunity to work at Freedlund Family Chiropractic & Nutrition. I was hired to watch Natalie (then I was 17) and did some office work. Before I knew it I was going to seminars and learning about Chiropractic. I loved it and decided I wanted to be a Chiropractor. I think everyone thought I would change my mind. But once you get to know me you will realize I am very determined.

So that is exactly what I did. I graduated from Chiropractic college, Life University, in March of 2012. My goal was to walk across the stage and then start practicing the following Monday. Did I tell you I am determined? I was close to making that work, but it takes some time to build an office and have the state of Illinois give you a license. In June of 2012 I opened my own office. Durand Family Chiropractic. With Gods help I built an amazing practice. My time in Durand was such a blessing. I can't say enough great things about Durand and the people I have met. I grew as a person and as a practitioner during those years. I am excited that I get to continue my relationships with my Durand patients with my move to Winnebago.

Recently, I decided it was time to follow through on a few things that God had been placing on my heart. I've always wanted a family of my own., but knew I wouldn't have a conventional family. I believe God has called me to be a foster mom. I have been called to be a mother to the motherless, to stand in the gap with kids who need stability and love. I am extremely humbled by this calling and I know that there will be amazing days and hard days ahead.

After I made the decision to be a mom, I woke up many nights wondering how am I going to do this?How am I going to be able to commit to my patients and my kids? Who is going to go to the band concert when I am working late at the office? That's when my Aunt Heather (yes Dr. Heather is my aunt) said "why don't you come work with us?" Another answer to prayer. I'm so grateful to work at Freedlund Family Chiropractic & Nutrition again. I am excited to meet all of you and I look forward to serving you and your family for many years to come.

God Bless.
