Personal Summary

Since 1977, Ivan Ortman, D.C., has made a significant impact on the Ortman Clinic and its patients, particularly in the areas of musculoskeletal conditions, nerve functions and general natural health and recovery without the use of drugs or surgery. That said, Dr. Ivan’s impact stretches beyond the doors of the clinic and extends to the entire community of Canistota. You’d be hard-pressed to find someone with greater dedication to his community, both local and global. He has served as the Vice President of the Canistota School Board, President of the Lions Club, a member of various committees in connection to the South Dakota Chiropractic Association and Mckennan (Avera) Hospital, President of the United Church Council, President of the South Dakota Prisons Chaplains Association and more.

“I feel privileged to be a part of the Ortman Clinic. It has been a blessing to provide chiropractic care to so many good respectable people. My wife, Katie, and I enjoy the small town life in Canistota and found it a wonderful place to raise our two daughters. Our church family is very important to us and our faith has led us to do mission work in prisons and other locations including Ecuador, South America. Our prayer is that everyone will feel God’s grace.”
