Rethink Chiropractic care
Improper alignment affects your joints negatively.
Chiropractic begins with basic biomechanical principles within physics. Every engineer, architect, and builder understands the importance of a sturdy foundation to ensure durability and longevity of their design. The slightest change to their creation will shift the foundation and perhaps eventually lead to collapse.The same theory applies when it comes to health and wellness.
A balanced foundation is crucial to allow the human body to function naturally. When joint systems are damaged by injury, stress, or health conditions, joint systems in the hips, knees, and ankles can suffer and fail. Chiropractic therapy helps the body achieve natural alignment so that proper joint mechanics can be restored.

Dr. Matthew Varner began his health career in 2007 after completing the School of Clinical Massage Therapy at Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota. 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, Dr. Varner began working for The Institute for Orthopedics and Chiropractic as a chiropractic assistant and massage therapist. After much inspiration, Dr. Varner decided to go back to Northwestern Health Sciences University for his chiropractic degree. During his residency at The Institute for Orthopedics and Chiropractic, he also received much training in the Gonstead chiropractic system attending local Gonstead clubs and traveling to Mount Horeb, Wisconsin 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. After 2 years, he moved to Southwest Florida to start his own chiropractic healthcare clinic, Integrated Health Solutions. 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).
Research shows that many people with pain have already seen an orthopedist, tried pills and physical therapy with little or no progress.
Through research, chiropractic has been shown to be more effective and less costly than physical therapy and drug-based approaches to pain management.
At IHS, we specialize in chiropractic orthopedics with advanced training, practicing the Gonstead Method.
We use non-surgical, drug free biomechanical principles to address joint pain and dysfunction. Generally, patients who experience the Gonstead approach to spinal care often receive positive and long-lasting results.

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!Hannah M.
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!Rose S.
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!Kathy L.
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!Jay P.
