Meet the Doctor


Dr. Cooper Dykstra DC, CFMP

Dr. Cooper is the founder and owner of Brain Health and Chiropractic. He is a passionate chiropractor that loves to work with complex cases and figure out the root cause of what is going on. He received his Doctorate of Chiropractic at NWHSU in Bloomington, MN. While he was in school he grew to love functional neurology and functional medicine because of the story it told about one's health. He is originally from Platte, SD, but has lived in many places, including Iowa, California, Minnesota, and even The Netherlands! In his free time, he enjoys spending time and traveling with his wife, Holly, and bernedoodle, Charlie. 


In 2008, Dr. Cooper experienced a serious motor vehicle accident where he was ejected out of the passenger window of a vehicle. After the incident, he was unable to move his left lower extremity for roughly six weeks and battled post-concussion symptoms. After struggling with chronic low back pain and post-concussion symptoms for almost 10 years, he was able to find relief through chiropractic care, functional neurology, and functional medicine.


Through this experience he has developed Brain Health and Chiropractic so he can help as many people as possible find relief and get back on track with their life! Dr. Cooper's main mission is to help the sick feel better and to help the healthy feel healthier. You can always work towards a better you, so let's take care of our brain​s!
