The Team

Dr. Eddie Weller

Wow! Where does one start? I have been blessed to serve the Chiropractic profession both internally by training students an doctors alike as well as serving over 10,000 people in a little over two decades.

I have always sought to add hope to those that feel as if they have tried everything. The truth is, the body doesn’t need any assistance, just nothing compromising it functioning. Well, that was what I had heard from a Chiropractor when I was 19 years old.

I had suffered from IBS and struggled terribly in school. After having my spine analyzed and adjusted, proper nerve system function is what transformed my life both physically and psychologically. This was the catalyst to my “why.”

Over the past 20+ years, I have seen miracle after miracle. Life as we know it emanates through our nerve system. If something where to compromise the nerve system, in time, the body (or mind) grows into a health condition. In turn, when the nerve system is restored to proper function, the body then has the opportunity to do all that it can to thrive.

Getting Weller is about having a healthy body, mind and relationships. You may be asking yourself, how are relationships, and my mind affected by a Chiropractor? I would love the opportunity to share time with you and explain how. We put Christ in the center and free any neurological compromise within your spine as the body then shifts from a degenerating state to a regenerating one. I cannot wait to share time with you and your family and watch your lives transform just like mine has.


Dr. David “Red” Powers

I’m a Memphis Tennessee native with cherished memories of visiting my grandparents’ farm in southeast Missouri. I met my wife, Mechelle in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota while I was fighting forest fires for the USDA Forest Service. Together, we have three amazing children, Sarah, Chance and Isaac. We have spent the last 20 years raising our kids, loving family and taking care of clients in South Dakota.

I have always loved to help those in need and rarely miss an opportunity to give someone a hug to add a smile to their day. It strikes a chord in me when I see or hear of someone suffering with a life of dis-ease. I believe that God gave me a purpose to help my fellow man through Upper cervical chiropractic adjustments.

I became interested in chiropractic after seeing how it helped my wife deal with migraines. I realized that I wanted to serve others through Chiropractic. I first experienced Upper Cervical chiropractic care after the birth of our first child, Sarah in 1998. After seeing how that type of adjustment helped me and my wife, I knew that I wanted to share the message of restoring nerve function rather than the message of managing pain. I was taken with the logic that God had given the body an innate ability to heal. I have a deep love of baseball and have enjoyed over 20 years of coaching young boys and men as they pursue their passion for the game. Being a mentor to youth through our church or local YMCA activities has given me a chance to share my love of the game while encouraging our youth to realize their God given abilities, and strengths.

I firmly believe that God is in control and has called me to share the ability he gave me to help restore proper nerve function so people can live life to its fullest. I simply get to help your body heal by moving the atlas bone which allows your body’s innate intelligence to do the rest to restore proper nerve function so you can reach your God given potential.

I am truly blessed to be a part of the Getting Weller Team where we place God in the center of caring for you. It is an honor to work with this team and to give you our best.

Dr. Michael Lea

Dr. Lea has been involved in Chiropractic since he was a child. Going to the Chiropractor was just part of the monthly routine that his family set. From an early age, he noticed that people in his family weren’t getting sick like other people were. It took him twenty years to understand why. A season-ending knee injury set Dr. Lea on a trajectory to learn everything he could about the human body. Through many experiences with different types of doctors, there was one who stood above the rest. Mark Lindholm, D.C. took a young Michael under his wing and taught him foundational principles that Chiropractic stands on. Whether it was traveling to Dr. Lindholm’ s alma mater (Palmer College of Chiropractic-Davenport) or time shadowing in the office, Michael was fascinated. It was largely due to the influence of Dr. Lindholm and the continued encouragement of Dr. Lea’s mother that lead him to set his sights on becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic.

He enrolled at the University of Indianapolis for undergraduate studies. Much of the coursework in the Exercise Science program at UIndy was aimed at understanding the many positive influences exercise and purposeful movement has on the human body. During his time at Uindy, Dr. Lea was involved with designing and conducting research studies. It was through the synthesis of all of the data that he came to appreciate objectivity in science. He would soon learn that his future profession was a science, art, and philosophy.

His next step to becoming a Doctor of Chiropractic was to enroll at Logan University in St. Louis. While in school, he was introduced to the many different types of Chiropractic techniques. He traveled the country learning from many technique experts as to which one he wanted to use in practice. He soon realized that many of these techniques were subjective in their analysis and laissez-faire when it came to producing objective results. He relied on what he had previously learned at UIndy, and sought to see what objectivity there was in the Chiropractic literature. It was about this same time that he met a dynamic local Chiropractor, Dr. Eddie Weller, who changed his and his wife’s life through his heart to serve the profession. Under the tutelage of this newly found mentor, Dr. Lea fell in love with the science, art, and philosophy of Chiropractic. It was Dr. Weller who introduced Dr. Lea and his wife, Lauryn to Upper Cervical Chiropractic. Both of their lives have been transformed with Upper Cervical care and yours can too! Dr. Michael Lea is excited to be part of the Getting Weller team and is looking to providing excellent care for you and your family
