Dr. Lorraine Hurst received her Doctor of Chiropractic degree, with Summa Cum Laude honors, from Northwestern Health Sciences University in 2010. As part of her education, she completed a two year intensive internship and has had the opportunity to train under many talented doctors at various locations around the Twin Cities. She specializes in Applied Kinesiology and motion palpation diagnosing, and adjusts spine, cranials and extremities utilizing drop-piece, activator and diversified techniques. Dr. Lorraine is also certified in Acupuncture and Graston technique. She is a very thorough and caring practitioner, spending more time with each patient than the typical chiropractor in order to provide them with the best possible treatment and results. Dr. Lorraine has a sincere enthusiasm for patient well-being and her whole body technique complements this passion.
Dr. Lorraine has been practicing in the Woodbury area since 2010 and opened Woodbury Family Chiropractic (WFC) in 2013. She was inspired to offer people a 'wholehearted' chiropractic experience where adjustments are customized and complimented with expert-level muscle work and body balancing. Currently, Dr. Lorraine works as the Chief Executive Officer of WFC.
At home, Dr. Lorraine has an energetic family of seven, including her financial planner husband, Aaron Smaagaard, her two adorable daughters, Lillian (8) and Sophia (6), her sweet baby boy Andrew (2), and her two energetic hunting dogs - Jack, a Vizsla, and Eddie, a German Shorthaired Pointer. She loves to run outside, practice yoga, and read inspiring personal development books and fiction novels in her spare time.
