Meet The Team
Wade Anunson D.C.
My 42 years as a chiropractic patient allows me to offer a fresh perspective when it comes to patient care. How, when and where chiropractic can help in a given situation is supported by my own immune and respiratory problems as a child, and musculo-skeletal challenges as an athlete.
My approach to holistic care was influenced as a child. Being involved with organized sports since I was 6, I’d had big dreams of becoming a professional baseball player. My first experience with chiropractic was when I was 4 yrs old suffering from chronic ear infections.
My Chiropractic Story…
We’d tried the traditional route with ear drops and various antibiotics, all with only short term effects. Not long after one bout, we’d be right back in the same boat with another infection. When my Pediatrician recommended tubes be put in, my mother felt that was more of an appeasement than a solution. Her willingness to ask questions and look for a solution rather than a ‘cover up’ is why I’m here today.
I’m so thankful for her persistence in asking good questions as to finding the cause of the infections. I didn’t realize how “outside the box” my mom’s thinking actually was back then. Turns out, chiropractic adjustments were the only thing that solved my recurring ear infections – I never experienced another ear infection after just a few adjustments. That experience was the beginning of a journey that continues to fascinate me with regard to the amazing healing power of the body.
As number 6 of 7 kids, our household was pretty exciting to say the least. Between day to day rough housing with my siblings, sports injuries and just plain ‘being a kid’, misalignments were a part of life. It made sense to my mom to periodically have us kids get a check-up to literally keep us in line. And boy did I need it. So we’d get a tune up every so often and it wasn’t until high school that I realized many of my friends did not get adjusted. I remember a couple teammates while playing high school soccer had injuries that kept them from practices and most importantly games. “Why don’t you just go get adjusted so you can heal up and quit wasting time?” What made perfect sense to me, seemed foreign to my friends. I was shocked at the ‘needless suffering’ they seemed to experience.
My Passion for Chiropractic
From my story above, I was influenced at a young age with a profound holistic response to chiropractic care. My passion is to help people see and experience how incredibly powerful they are. Chiropractic is a medium that allows me to show them the absolute brilliance of the body. I feel extremely grateful to be able to share this gift and impact people’s lives. Out of all the possible modalities at our fingertips in healthcare today, I would choose an adjustment over any of them. It’s one of the most powerful gifts we can give because the nervous system controls and coordinates all cells in the body. Releasing that nerve flow with an adjustment enhances the coordination, control and moreover, the “intelligence” between the brain and the rest of the body. It’s a small thing that can make a BIG difference!
Here at our Madison chiropractic office I am passionate about delivering patient centered, solution based care that serves the patient’s health goals. I’m passionate about a clinic model that simplifies access to care and accommodates people’s hectic lifestyles. I’m passionate about creating a WIN-WIN-WIN!
On a Personal Note…
I’ve always enjoyed the outdoors. I don’t have any ‘secrets’ for creating a youthful body, other than eating well, balancing daily physical activity with plenty of rest and maintaining a healthy spine. On the active side, I enjoy playing competitive tennis, basketball, running and mountain biking. I love spending time outdoors with photography, archery, fly fishing, skiing and of course traveling with my wife Dr. Heather. My wife and I enjoy time traveling and hanging out with family and friends. We also relish the opportunity to indulge in the simple pleasures like great food, espresso and of course dark chocolate.
I’ve enjoyed training and competing in past adventure races such as ‘off road’ triathlons (Wolfman Triathlon) and Wisconsin’s Tough Mudder. I’m a big fan of movement. So with running, basketball, tennis and now yoga (thanks Dr. Heather), I find joy in the challenge they offer and areas for growth.
Chiropractor in Madison with a “fresh perspective”
As a patient for nearly 42 years and a chiropractor for 20 years, my understanding of how, when and where chiropractic can be effective as a solution gives a fresh perspective to patient care. This unique perspective from a patient’s point of view translates into patients more clearly understanding their options, possibilities and overall expectations from care.
I’m passionate about helping people recognize how brilliant their body is, and how specific adjustments enhance a vibrant, adapting, and self healing body. Being raised in a family of 7 kids, I discovered first hand the cost effective benefits of chiropractic care in solving health challenges of all types. Chiropractic is not a cure for any disease or condition, but rather a foundation to a healthy functioning nerve system.

Hi, I’m Sena. I started my journey here at Anunson Chiropractic in May of 2020. I have found myself at home here, and after undergoing numerous health challenges, I finally found answers to get back on track. Finding a place that recognized my individuality as an employee as well as a patient has led me to be the healthiest I am yet to date. My love and curiosity for learning about and caring for the human body is nourished every time I step foot into work.
I get to see the beauty of how our practice gives real world results to patients and having the ability to be a part of their journey is humbling. As an aspiring chiropractor, I have recognized the importance of the individual. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to health.
In my free time you can find me wandering through the woods, playing with my dogs and menagerie of farm animals, soaking up some sun, hunting, shooting my bow, cooking and baking, painting, or curled up with a good book. Knowledge is one of the greatest armors we can give ourselves and it has become a core value for me. We are never not doing, learning and growing, and my biggest lesson thus far in life is remembering to find the BALANCE. We are an initiated system undergoing the constant eb and flow of life.
Chiropractic has long been a part of my life and I’m excited to join the fabulous team at Anunson Chiropractic. After struggling with health issues for many years and finding little relief in conventional approaches to treatment, I began my natural health journey and never looked back. I’m particularly interested in how food and lifestyle practices can heal the body. As I continue to learn more about what works best for my body, I’ve drawn on my passion for cooking to modify and adapt recipes to meet my wellness goals.
I enjoy bringing wonderful women together to eat delicious food and forge relationships. I believe that when strong women join forces, real changes happen that benefit all people. Bringing people together through food is one of the ways I live my values. Using local and ethically sourced ingredients as much as possible is another.
In my spare time, I love being outside enjoying nature while kayaking, hiking, and snowshoeing. One of my recent interests is exploring as many of Wisconsin’s State Parks as possible. I am grateful to have a supportive family, absolutely wonderful friends, and a ravishingly beautiful Kitty!
I’m Katherine, a Wisconsin native who recently moved back to the area after living in the South for several years. When my husband and I found out we were pregnant with our first child, we decided to make the long trek from Louisiana to put down roots in my small hometown south of Madison. Rolling hills, four beautiful seasons, wonderful people -I’ve quickly rediscovered my love for southern Wisconsin!
After our move, I started out as a barista and manager for a local coffee shop, which scratched my itch for well made craft coffee and community-oriented customer service, but I eventually decided I wanted a career that would allow me to focus on developing my passion for wellness and nutrition. Becoming a certified chiropractic technician has been the perfect fit for the lifestyle I want to pursue, and gives me many opportunities to learn more about optimal health. I truly enjoy getting to serve the community in such a unique way, while also improving the health and resilience of my own family with the knowledge and skills I gain at Anunson Chiropractic.
These days, my time at home is spent gardening with my daughter and producing as much of our own food as I can, baking yummy paleo desserts, caring for my two retired horses, and keeping my flock of chickens out of trouble. I have recently developed an interest in understanding regenerative agriculture, and I hope to implement such holistic methods on my own homestead someday.
