About Dr. Elzaan Truter DC, BS

Dr. Elzaan Truter was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Stellenbosch and spending several years living in England, she decided to join her family who had immigrated to the United States. This is when she discovered chiropractic and fell in love with the natural and conservative approach to healthcare. Dr. Truter attended Life University where she achieved Dean's list and President's list status and graduated cum laude as a Doctor of Chiropractic. She developed a special interest in the art of instrument adjusting and recently became certified in Sigma Instrument Methods.

Dr. Truter is outgoing, compassionate and has a genuine desire to serve and educate patients. During her free time, she loves spending time with her family and friends, enjoys hiking and traveling, and getting away to the beach and back to the ocean as much as possible.
