Dr. Amanda was born and raised in central Wisconsin.  Her chiropractic journey began when she received a coupon for an initial exam with x-rays free of charge while in undergrad.  When she returned to the office for her report of findings appointment, she learned that the curve in her cervical spine had started to reverse and began receiving adjustments.

Over time, she felt relief from frequent illness, constant headaches, menstrual cramps and occasional ear aches, among other things.  Dr. Amanda was hooked.  After seeing how far she had come, looking back, Dr. Amanda often wonders where she would be today and what life would be like had she not begun chiropractic care.

After graduating in the top 3% of her high school class, she went on to receive a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Psychology and a minor in Neuroscience in May, 2007.  Dr. Amanda then attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA, beginning in July, 2009.  During her time at Palmer, she was heavily involved in Student Council and became Student Council President her last year of school.

Dr. Amanda completed graduation requirements a trimester early and spent her last trimester in a Quad City chiropractic office to gain experience, graduating in October, 2012.  She gained invaluable extracurricular education and experience with pediatrics and pregnancy, taking over 300 hours of courses from the International College of Chiropractic Pediatrics.  Dr. Amanda is also Activator Certified with an Advanced Proficiency Rating in instrument adjusting, and she also practices hands-on techniques of Diversified, Gonstead, Flexion-Distraction, myofascial release, extremities and many others.

She enjoys giving back to the community, volunteering for various organizations, such as Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army and other local non-profits.

Dr. Amanda was a devoted mom to two young children, ages 5 & 3, who gained their angel wings after a family tragedy.  Though her babies were taken early in their life, they continue to motivate her to live each day in their loving memory by serving the needs of children and families helping them live to their healthiest potential.

Chiropractic Appleton WI Callie Huft Occupational Therapist

Occupational Therapist

Callie Huft

Callie was born and raised in Northern Minnesota, and she is proud of it. She grew up around several family members in the healthcare field, and knew from a young age that she, too, wanted to pursue a career in a helping field. As a freshman in high school, she spent several hours observing occupational therapists at her local hospital and fell in love with the profession.

Read More

She is passionate about helping men and women feel their best, move their best, and maximize their quality of life by focusing on the activities in their daily lives that mean the most to them.

Callie spent her college days at the University of North Dakota, with a semester abroad in Australia. She received a Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy in 2013.

After graduation, she moved to Arizona and worked at a Level One trauma hospital in Phoenix. In this setting, she worked with individuals suffering from any and all diagnoses, including neurologic conditions, orthopedic injuries, elective surgeries, cardiac conditions, dementias, and the list goes on. She greatly appreciated the wide array of clinical experiences that built a solid foundation for the rest of her career.

Callie and her husband, Steve, moved to Appleton in 2015. She provided OT at a multidimensional rehabilitation facility - working across the spectrum of rehab, including inpatient short-term rehab, long-term rehab, assisted living, and community outpatient. She quickly realized that she enjoys the outpatient setting most; she feels inspired by her clients who are motivated to restore lost function, to work hard to rehab injuries or trouble areas, and who learn to appreciate the wonders of the human body and importance of caring for one's physical and mental health.

Although she enjoys any and all client conditions and diagnoses, Callie has a special interest in women's health, pelvic floor therapy, and working with the pregnant and postpartum population. After having a little one of her own, Callie intimately knows how under-served this population is from a therapy perspective. As a Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist, she hopes to bring encouragement, healing, education, and empowerment to those who are experiencing pain, discomfort, incontinence, prolapse, diastasis recti, and any other difficulties following the incredible journey of pregnancy and childbirth.

As an OT at Chiropractic Advantage, Callie is available to provide:

  • comprehensive movement assessment to discover asymmetries or dysfunctional patterns that may be causing chronic pain or discomfort,
  • in-depth evaluation of personal and professional daily habits, routines, and activities that could be contributing to trouble areas,
  • individualized exercise programs that will correct muscle imbalances that could be keeping you from fully healing,
  • lots of education to empower you to become an expert of your own body, prevent future injury, and take agency over your own health,
  • a holistic approach to the human experience that honors not just physical health, but also considers the intricacies of how mental and emotional health influence pain and healing.

Some of Callie's favorite things include nature walks, coffee dates with girlfriends, yoga, college football, the TV show "Friends", and of course, spending time with her husband and daughter.
