Meet Dr. Daniel Higgins, DC

Dr. Daniel Higgins, DC, operates a general family chiropractic practice on the east side of Appleton, Wisconsin. As a chiropractor, he utilizes many styles of chiropractic adjusting, the activator method, and other manual techniques and therapies to get desired results for his patients. He is delighted to be back in the Fox Cities to practice. “I love this area and its family-focused way of life,” says Dr. Dan. “It is a privilege to be able to serve the community that gave me a great education, fabulous athletic opportunities, and encouragement in my youth.”


“As a multiple sport athlete throughout my youth, I learned the benefits of chiropractic first hand. When a broken leg—suffered at the end of the football season—threatened to sideline me for a good portion of the upcoming basketball season, my chiropractor came to the rescue. He worked closely with my orthopedist and cut the normal rehab time in half. His care for me made all the difference, and it made me want to do the same for others.” – Dr. Dan Higgins

My Health Philosophy

“I don’t like to sit still, so I’ve always been active. As a competitor, coach and health advocate, I deeply value the ability to live life on the move. My goal as a health professional is to ensure that pain and dysfunction don’t keep people from enjoying the activities that define their ideal lifestyle.”
