Dr.Matthew Varner


Dr. Matthew Varner began his health career in 2007 after completing the School of Clinical Massage Therapy at Northwestern Health Sciences University. He developed an interest in rehabilitative soft tissue therapy while continuing his education receiving training in fascial release techniques and neuromuscular therapy. Shortly after obtaining his National Certification in Massage Therapy (NCTMB), Dr. Varner began working for The Institute for Orthopedics and Chiropractic as a chiropractic assistant and massage therapist. After much experience and guidance working his first two years at IOC, he also received much training in the Gonstead system attending local Gonstead clubs and traveling to Mount Horeb, WI completing the Gonstead Methodology Institute’s training program. He graduated in 2015 with a BS in Human Biology and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. He then joined the Institute for Orthopedics & Chiropractic’s team of chiropractors. Dr. Varner is an avid musician, artist and runner. He is married and lives in Cape Coral, FL. He is in good standing with the Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA) and the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA).

I’ve encountered a few chiropractors in my day and Dr. Varner is by far one of the greatest chiropractors. He is knowledgeable, personal and wants to leave you better than he finds you- mind and body! I was treated my entire pregnancy and I experienced a wonderful birth due to his adjustments. My baby girl also had the privilege of getting adjusted too(she loves it)! We both leave his office well taken care of. We are so sad to see Dr. Varner move to Florida, but I know great things are ahead for him and his family!

I have been very impressed with Dr.Varners wealth of knowledge! He is very caring and has a deep commitment to helping his patients, young and old. He has personally helped me with an old knee injury, my feet, neck and back. I have also learned much in the area of healthy nutrition, which he has an in-depth study in. He does not give you pat answers he has solutions for every problem your body is suffering from. He explains things so you can understand, he is patient with my questions and he is very encouraging. He is an outstanding chiropractor in my book. He will be dearly missed!

Dr. Varner has treated a number of my sports injuries over the years, plus helped other family members. I have always enjoyed his insights, perspective, and expertise about how to make me feel better. We will miss having access to his services in MN and have a new reason to visit FL!

Dr. Varner created and executed a complete sports injury program to heal my nagging rotator cuff issues that had turned into a significant problem. I appreciate his open communication about the underlying issues, integration of multiple recovery options (chiropractic, deep tissue massage, cryotherapy), and advice about proper diet to support the recovery process. Strongly recommend connecting with Dr. Varner to heal from an injury or create a wellness program to stay healthy!
