Clinic Director/Doctor of Chiropractic – Thrive Spine and Sport, LLC
Level 5 Full Body Certified Integrative Diagnosis Provider
Board Certified Chiropractor – State of Iowa

After serving as an associate in an office in Iowa City for over a year, chance led me to finding Integrative Diagnosis – the most advanced conservative care diagnosis and treatment system.

I was frustrated by the process of a regular chiropractic office.  Adjust the patient and let them go.  If they don’t get better, they need to be stretching more, or doing more exercise, or maybe need to purchase hundreds of dollars of supplements.  Sound familiar?

The problem I had was that in traditional chiropractic offices there is never a real diagnosis that’s established and patients would routinely return to the office for temporary relief.  Stumbling upon the Integrative Diagnosis system I found what I was looking for.  A system that provides advanced diagnosis and the best way to treat each patient.  It does not blend with a traditional chiropractic office, which led me to open Thrive Spine and Sport in July of 2013.

I am very proud to currently be the only full body certified Integrative Diagnosis office in the state of Iowa.  I am excited to come to the office each day to help patients find relief from pain and to help those who have been failed by the traditional model of conservative care.

Currently, my family and I reside in North Liberty, but will be moving the Cedar Rapids/Marion area soon!  My wife, Amber, and I were married in September of 2011 and we have 2 kids, Brecken and Brixley.

In my spare time I enjoy powerlifting, watching Hawkeye sports, and most importantly spending time with my family!

Thank you for checking out our website and office!  If you are currently struggling with pain we hope to see you in our office soon!

“It is important to me that patients walk out of our door with a clear understanding of their condition. That means that patients understand exactly what is going on, why it happened, and how their problem is going to be fixed. Patients deserve better care than what they have come to expect, and that is what we do in our office!” - Cody Scharf, DC

Board Certified Chiropractor – State of Iowa

Growing up in Fort Dodge, IA, I received my high school diploma from Fort Dodge Senior High in 2008. I  went on to earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Health Science from the University of Iowa in 2011 and graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 2015.

Prior to graduation, I was selected to be a Chiropractic Teaching Assistant in the Palmer Academic Health Center. In addition to my undergraduate and graduate degrees, I have attended numerous Integrative Diagnosis seminars under the direction of Integrative Diagnosis creator, Dr. William Brady.

Through the Integrative Diagnosis System, I’ve obtained full body certifications in Manual Adhesion Release, and Instrument Adhesion Release therapies. I am proud to be one of only two level 5 full body certified Integrative Diagnosis providers in the state on Iowa.

I am excited to share the same passion in our office to ensure patients get exactly what they need. Patients deserve to have the cause of their pain identified and treated correctly where others have failed to do so. I am passionate and dedicated to improving lives, optimizing performance, and helping patients get back to activities they love pain free.

Outside the clinic, I enjoy being outdoors, playing sports, weight lifting, and spending time with my wife, Anna and our dog, Atlas.

Office Manager

I joined the Thrive Spine and Sport team in June 2016! Originally from North English, IA, I grew up on a farm learning strong values. After graduating from English Valley High School, I continued my education at UNI and Hawkeye Community College in Office Administration.

My family moved to Cedar Rapids in 2007. I was able to be home with my three children, Paxton, Sawyer, and Truett, until they were all in school full time. We currently live in Marion with my husband, Ben, and his son, Levi.

Being part of this team is such a privilege! I am honored to be a part of helping patients finally find answers to their problem, and I look forward to meeting with you!
