Dr. Wade A. Lofton was born and raised primarily in Sioux Falls, SD where he graduated from Washington High School in May of 1994. Dr. Lofton graduated in the top 10% of a class of 500 and excelled in power-lifting and wrestling on a state level; setting many school records. In September of 1995, Dr. Lofton enrolled in pre-chiropractic at South Dakota State University where he excelled academically on the Dean's List and wrestled at the NCAA Division II level. In January of 2001, Dr. Lofton enrolled in Chiropractic school at Northwestern College of Chiropractic, now the Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota. In May of 2004, he graduated with a Bachelors of Science and a Doctorate of Chiropractic. Several months post graduation, Dr. Lofton continued his study of the human body and one year later became Certified in Pediatrics through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. He also became certified in Torque Release Technique, a low force non-linear technique that assesses the function of the brain and spinal cord activity, through reflexive responses in the spine.
Prior to and post graduation from Doctorate School, Dr. Lofton traveled the United States shadowing and learning from many well known Doctors, Management Coaches, and Figures in the Chiropractic profession. Post graduation, Dr. Lofton spent one year visualizing, studying, perfecting, and praying for God to show him direction as to the time, location, and style of practice that he was called to build.
One morning Dr. Lofton was studying the Bible and he ran across Mark 16:15, which states: Go ye into the World and tell the good news to everyone. At that instant moment he jumped out of bed and asked his lovely wife if he should become a Pastor and Teacher, so that he could fulfill Mark 16:15. She responded to him in a kind about way that he should get out of school debt before he thinks of putting himself back into debt. With discouragement he agreed and proceeded to continue reading. To his amazement, he came across Mark 16:18, which states: Those who believe shall lay hands upon the sick and they shall recover. This was the beginning of a vision that would and is attempting to bring Christ to the forefront in healthcare. A faith based health care facility that teaches and preaches the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15) and lays hands on the sick with the belief that they will recover (Mark 16:18).
In July of 2005, Dr. Lofton went out in faith and built a brand new 2200 sq. foot free standing building and named it LifeForce Family Chiropractic PA; the first of many faith based health care facilities to come. Also, in 2005, he and many other doctors went to El Salvador and rendered free health care services to the country for a week, which he was later rewarded by the President of El Salvador with a beautiful signed certificate of appreciation.
In August of 2006, Dr. Lofton and his team at LifeForce Family Chiropractic partnered with Research and Clinical Sciences. They were proud to be 1 of 220 facilities or clinics in the world with an IRB Approved Research status that was documenting and publishing the amazing changes in quality of life through chiropractic care. All research participants subjective and objective findings were being analyzed by a scientific advisory panel of Medical Doctors, Chiropractic Doctors, and PH.D Scientists that approve or deny publications in main stream peer reviewed journals.
In March of 2007, Dr. Lofton became Certified in Cranial Nerve Reset by the American College of Addictions and Compulsive Disorders. He also received an Advanced Proficiency rating and certification in the Torque Release Technique.
Dr. Lofton currently is the President of the Minnesota Christian Chiropractic Association where he and many others strive to bring the message of health and healing, through Jesus Christ, to the forefront in healthcare. He also serves as a member of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, International Chiropractic Association, Christian Chiropractic Association, and The World Chiropractic Alliance.
Dr. Lofton is very passionate about Christianity and Chiropractic and believes that these are two of the best kept secrets that need to be talked about more often and taught on a global level. Some of his passions are: serving people, loving people, educating people, and empowering people today to change the world tomorrow. He believes in life changing choices; act now or lose later in life.
In between accomplishing the vision that God has placed in Dr. Lofton, he loves to spend time exercising, hunting, competing and watching every type of dirt and pavement racing known to mankind, camping with his family, watching his children race and compete in numerous sports, farming on his organic family farm, and watching his beautiful children excel and grow up in life.
Dr. Lofton is a proud father of five girls and five boys and is happily married to a beautiful woman who enjoys most everything he does. His family consists of his wife Kathryn and his ten children: Alexis, Bryce, Carley, Destiney, Elijah, Forester, Graham, Hope, Isabel, and Jeremiah (and their dog: Kada). The family enjoys going on their traditional vacations in the summer to the Water Park and to the Mountains in the winter.
Their goal is to be together and travel around the world fulfilling their purpose that God has called them to do in life.

CARLEY S. LOFTON
You will see Carley Lofton full-time in the summer and occasionally during the rest of the year working fast and hard as our lead receptionist in the life changing health center that her father created in 2005. She has been working here the past 8 years in different positions, and will ask a lot of questions :), but works very fast and efficiently. In fact she hates making mistakes, and loves getting things checked off her checklist...We are super blessed to have her join our team, and hope you love her as much as we do, even with all of her questions :)
Carley was born in Shakopee, Minnesota, and spent the majority of her life in Jordan, Minnesota. She currently lives in Lakeville, Minnesota, and finally has her own bedroom, which is kinda tough when you have 9 brothers and sisters, and now 4 foster kids residing in her home.
Carley was delivered via her father, and adjusted minutes after birth, and has continued to live the principled lifestyle, although I hear from her father that she needs to work on eating more fruit and vegetables :). Carley has been blessed to never put a prescription drug or vaccine in her body since God brought her into this world; a testimony to a healthy nervous system and favor from the Lord!!!
Carley is currently a student at New Prague High School and entering into her sophomore year in the fall of 2020. A big passion in her life the past 3-4 years has been the sport of Volleyball. She also is very passionate about Wrestling (as is the whole family), but no longer is an athlete on the mat, but loves being in the stands or matside watching the sport.
In her free time she loves to hang out with friends and go on adventures, and I'm told via her father that she also loves to sit on YouTube :). She is dreaming big, as she wants to start a YouTube channel, and make millions to support her #1 passion; MISSION work...She believes that God is calling her into the Mission field!
We adore Carley, and are so grateful for her work ethic, and passion to fit right in at this super busy Health Center, we hope you also adore her...
Deanna Wilsey was the 3rd of 5 children born in Brookings, SD in 1962; funny thing is Dr. Lofton went to college and wrestled for SDSU in Brookings, SD...small world.
In 1981 she graduated from Irondale High School in New Brighton, MN and later married one of the founding leaders of MN Teen Challenge. Deanna had 2 children and eventually she went on to Beauty School to make people look super starish...
Deanna has always had a passion for music and was the music director and worship leader at Christian Life School and Church for 9 years. She likes to learn and loves ministering to the hurting and hopefully put a prophetic song in their heart that will encourage them on their walk in life...
Deanna was a practice member (patient) at LFFC (LifeForce Family Chiropractic) where she learned about the principle of Chiropractic and how the body can heal itself when given the right things. Deanna was unemployed at the time she started care, but saw the value in living the principled lifestyle interference free, that she started care in faith believing God would provide financially, and a month later he did by adding her to the LFFC team!
Deanna is the lead receptionist for our team and loves being part of a family, and if you know anything about our model, we want you to feel like family, so we believe she is a perfect fit!
Alyssa Bissener was born in Waconia, Mn, and grew up in Jordan Mn with her 2 sisters and 2 brothers. Alyssa currently has her CNA and PCA license and is pursuing her degree in Nursing as an RN.
Alyssa wants to work in the healthcare field, and help people from a natural standpoint with their health concerns; it is her goal to lead people to the promise land of health and healing by using the gifts that God has given her over the years...
Alyssa loves nature, being with friends and family, and has a passion for traveling, especially if it involves visiting her sister in Florida :). Alyssa and her family regularly attend Cross of Grace in Chaska, MN. You will hear Alyssa worshiping out loud softly as she works next to Dr. Lofton as the CA (Chiropractic Assistant), however, please don't ask her who is singing because she is terrible at recognizing Artists
Alyssa was a practice member at LFFC (LifeForce Family Chiropractic) for a year, prior to being interested in working for LFFC. In fact, one day she had a corrective care consult to review her X-ray images with Dr. Lofton, and it was at the consult that she became intrigued to interview for the Tech CA (Tech Chiropractic Assistant) position. She also became extremely interested in Cranial Nerve Reset/Auriculotherapy because she was already intrigued with the effects of Acupuncture and seen the similarities in both protocols. However, when she found out that Cranial Nerve Reset therapy was based upon neurological reflexes in your spinal cord and brain, she had to know more, and a few days later she was meeting with Dr. Lofton as a potential employee rather than a patient!
The rest is history, as Dr. Lofton soon hired her to start her training with LFFC as the Tech CA and certification through the American College of Addictionology and Compulsive Disorders as the Lead Cranial Nerve Reset Therapist!
Alyssa is called our Jack of all trades as she also was cross trained in Receptionist and CA, where she assists in those positions when things are chaotic, which happens many days when we are serving all of God's children to be interference free!
We are excited to have her on our team, and it is Dr. Lofton's wish that she would transition from Nursing school to Doctorate school to become a Neurological based Chiropractor, and run/operate an affiliate health center of LFFC somewhere in Minnesota.
