Meet the Doctors

Dr. Cory Blanchard

Carrying on a family tradition in the natural healing profession, Dr. Cory is a fourth-generation chiropractor. “I was born while my father was in chiropractic school, and received my first chiropractic adjustment when I was just weeks old.” Dr. Cory knew early on that he wanted to be of service to people seeking to achieve better health.

He grew up in Grafton, North Dakota and did his undergraduate studies at the University of Minnesota. To obtain his chiropractic education, he attended Northwestern Health Sciences University. While there, he learned more about pediatric chiropractic care and the effect it can have on children’s lives when they begin seeing a chiropractor at a young age.

Today, he sees families including all ages of children.

Outside of the office, Dr. Cory is an active person. He likes playing hockey in the winter and softball in the summer, as well as enjoying area golf courses. His spare time is often spent with his Chocolate Lab Allie.


Dr. Melissa Blanchard (Agnew)

Dr. Mel grew up in Onamia, Minnesota and was active in high school and college, participating in track and cross country. She majored in exercise science at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota. While there, she was a three-time NCAA Division II National Champion and a 12-time All-American.

Seeking a health care profession that took a holistic approach, Dr. Mel discovered that chiropractic was a perfect fit. She attended Northwestern Health Sciences University where she learned about treating the cause of an injury or condition rather than masking symptoms as so many medications do.

During her internship, she saw firsthand the effects chiropractic care had on her patients and became excited to open her own practice. At Imperial Family Chiropractic, Dr. Mel often sees active individuals and athletes. She is certified in Graston and Rock Tape®.

When she’s not at the office, Dr. Mel stays busy with the Twin Cities Track Club. She runs on the weekends and enjoys checking out area restaurants and breweries.

We look forward to meeting you! Contact us today to schedule a same-day appointment.
