How We Do It

History of Triage Wellness Institute

Your wellness clinic in Elko New Market is the culmination of one doctor’s dream to help people.

Dr. Buesgens, OTR, DC, worked for Fairview Hand/UE Center in occupational therapy, but he realized that his true calling was to treat the health of the whole body. That led him to pursue his Doctor of Chiropractic, after which he established Arlington Family Chiropractic Clinic in Tennessee—still one of the most successful clinics in the Mid-South.

Dr. Buesgens relocated back to Minnesota more than 12 years ago and now runs Triage Wellness Institute. Dr. Buesgens is an award-winning doctor and is also a published author of sports rehabilitation books.
