Meet The Doctors
Dr. Mason Orth
Dr. Mason Orth is a doctor of chiropractic who started his clinic in Fargo right out of school in the year 2000. He is especially interested people suffering with chronic pain and has led the way among Fargo chiropractors with new technologies to help treat chronic pain without drugs or surgery.
Dr. Orth grew up watching his dad suffer with chronic back and neck pain and, having suffered from it himself much of his own life, Dr. Orth has developed the unique ability to not only empathize with patients but to deeply understand what they are feeling and experiencing. This gives he and his team as Fargo Chiropractors the opportunity to connect on a much deeper level with patients and to better understand what the source of their chronic pain is and, how best to treat it.
“Unfortunately I inherited my dad’s back and have lived managing chronic pain most of my life. I know how chronic pain robs life from people and I am committed to providing cutting-edge treatment that not only reduces pain, but allows people to manage it and function for the rest of their life.”
Dr. Orth is known for his ability to diagnose more difficult cases especially related to spinal, shoulder, hip and knee conditions. He has grown his practice from a sole-practitioner to having multiple doctors in multiple clinics in both North Dakota and Minnesota. He has coached and trained doctors across the country and has over a half-dozen doctors right here in the area that have trained with him and are in practice today.
Over the years his clinics have won multiple awards for performance and achievement and he continues to pursue the most effective and up-to-date methods of treating patients without the use of drugs and surgery. He has helped to start local wellness programs in area businesses and his clinics perform multiple community events each month.
Dr. Orth grew up locally in Horace and still resides in the area with his three children. He graduated with a Pre-Medicine degree from Minnesota State University Moorhead with the intention of going to medical school. During college he also worked as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and it was his love of health, nutrition and human performance that eventually led him to study chiropractic at Northwestern – a highly respected school for Fargo chiropractors.
When not working he will be spending time with his family, preferably outdoors and by water. If he isn’t hanging out with family he will likely be reading, studying or tuning-up his 1967 Dodge Coronet 500. Active in his church he has started a local men’s group and works to help people create a better life for themselves.
Dr. Orth has additional studies in spinal disc disorders, soft tissue dysfunction, spinal rehabilitation, extremity and sports injury, non-surgical spinal decompression, cold laser treatment, nutrition and wellness.
Dr. Matt Wilson
Dr. Matt Wilson has had a lifelong passion for helping others achieve their goals and giving them support to become the best version of themselves. Originally from Grafton, ND, Dr. Matt started this passion by coaching Termite hockey in high school and co-commanding the notoriously loud Grafton High School student section during hockey season.
Dr. Matt was first introduced to Chiropractic care while attending NDSU and working as an appliance delivery driver. Repetitive motion and constant downward force on his spine brought him to the world of chiropractic and he’s never looked back. In addition to graduating from Northwestern Health Sciences University in 2018, Dr. Matt has extensive training in soft tissue modalities, lower extremity care, and mobility taping.
When Dr. Matt isn’t helping others find success, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Alyssa, woodworking, and armchair quarterbacking sports entertainment with his friends.
