For 62 years, Stucky Chiropractic Center has been helping the Eau Claire area with all sorts of health issues, and like a fine wine, they’re only getting better with age. Originally founded in 1959 by Dr. Joe L. Stucky, the practice has been passed down to his daughter, Dr. Pam, and her two partners, Dr. Kyle Anderson and Dr. Brian Becker, as well as a granddaughter, Dr. Alyse (specializing in animal care), and her husband, Dr. Eddie Hall, as well as Dr. Chris Edwards. This practice has over 100 years of talented experience and a great support team.
Every doctor at Stucky Chiropractic Center is committed to the health of each patient and is passionate about finding the route of each problem patients come into the office with. They offer several prestigious treatment routes along with general adjustments.
Low Level Laser
One of their newest therapies is the FX Series Low-Level Laser which helps with cellular healing. They also offer Softwave Tissue Regeneration Technology which is a stem cell regeneration machine. There are only about 400 of them in the U.S. Stucky offers spinal decompression, spinal regeneration, E-Stim, cupping, in-house massage therapy, and so much more.
Stucky prides itself on their thorough work-up process for new patients in order to find the root of each issue. The work-ups usually consist of nerve scans, determining your range of motion, x-rays, and more. One of the doctors at Stucky, Dr. Eddie Hall, says that the key to fixing any problem in the body is to have the best understanding possible of what has gone wrong.
“We have so many people come and we get the chance to help so many people in this community,” Dr. Hall said. “It’s because we find the source of the problem and not Band-Aid the problem.”
Dr. Hall decided to become a chiropractor after he sustained a spinal injury that left him temporarily paralyzed in his legs while he was deadlifting weights with some friends.
“It was not very smart, but very ego-driven,” Hall laughed. “One afternoon we were doing that and I heard like a shotgun go off and I fell to my knees and I couldn’t feel my legs. I went and got MRIs, and I had surgery scheduled for six weeks later, but luckily one of my client’s husband was a chiropractor. I had no idea what that was, but she said ‘you’ve got nothing to lose,’ and took me herself to her husband’s clinic.”
After a few alignments, not only was Dr. Hall feeling better and able to move more, he ended up canceling his surgery and made a full recovery without any invasive procedures. After that incident, Dr. Hall decided he want to become a chiropractor so he can help others the way he was helped. While attending Life University to study to become a chiropractor, he met his now-wife, Dr. Alyse LaGuardia-Hall, who is the granddaughter of Dr. Joe Stucky.

“This business has been in our family for 62 years and we’ve helped this community for 62 years, generationally,” Dr. Hall said. “With my wife’s grandfather and then her parents and now us, it’s just a beautiful thing.”
Having worked at Stucky for the last seven years, Dr. Hall has seen the lasting impact that Dr. Stucky and all of the people at Stucky Chiropractic Center have made on their patients and the community as a whole.
“I still see people who used to come to Dr. Stucky when they were kids,” Dr. Hall said. “They still come through these doors and get adjusted.”
Every single Doctor at Stucky Chiropractic Center has and continues to be committed to the well-being of everyone that enters the building and to continues to use practices that Dr. Joe Stucky held near and dear to his heart.
“Whenever a patient comes in, we treat them like family, from the first person they meet at the front desk to our techs in the back, to us as doctors, we really have this cool family dynamic here with our patients as well,” Dr. Hall said. “Maybe that’s not unique but we get feedback all the time saying what a great environment this is.”
