Dr. Alex Midkiff lives in Ankeny with his wife, Melissa. He enjoys spending time with Melissa and playing many sports such as racquetball, disc golf, bowling, golf, pickleball, and softball to name a few. He was born and raised in Kernersville, NC then attended Appalachian State University in Boone, NC where he met Melissa and studied Athletic Training for a background in understanding the human anatomy and diagnosing/treating sports injuries.
Then, they moved to St. Louis, MO where he attended Logan University to study Chiropractic. At Logan, Dr. Alex took many electives to learn different chiropractic techniques in order to be able to treat a variety of conditions and populations in school such as Diversified, Thompson, Active Release technique (ART), Activator, Gonstead, Basic, and McKenzie method. Dr. Alex was also involved with a professional fraternity that helped to further enhance a learning atmosphere and create a network of chiropractors. While at Logan, he continued to stay competitive in racquetball by winning a professional racquetball event, becoming the top ranked Missouri racquetball player, and becoming a collegiate racquetball champion.
He moved to Ankeny to work his last chiropractic internship at Bloyer Chiropractic, and is excited to continue working at Bloyer Chiropractic as a chiropractor. He graduated from chiropractic school in 2020.
