About Dr. Josh Mason
Josh Mason, DC, is the founder and clinic director at Active Health Clinics in Fort Dodge, Iowa, where the focus is on restoring patients who are in pain and have limited mobility to health and fitness.
Dr. Mason earned his bachelor’s degree and his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He has always had a passionate belief in the value of leading an active and healthy lifestyle, which he enthusiastically conveys to his patients, leading by example, of course.
Dr. Mason combines the experience he’s gained from his own athletic background with his expertise in chiropractic to help athletes at all levels overcome sports injuries and improve their performance. He works with athletes at collegiate, high school, and recreational levels. Dr. Mason also acts as an onsite company doctor for several companies who recognize the benefits of providing high-quality services to their employees.
His commitment to providing exceptional, effective, and efficient care for his patients has led Dr. Mason to become an elite provider in a treatment technique called active release technique (ART). Although chiropractic has many benefits and can be used in a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions, it can’t address every type of soft tissue injury. Using his expertise in ART enables Dr. Mason to provide comprehensive care for a far more extensive range of conditions.
Dr. Mason is a valued member of the local community, and he’s served on a variety of boards in Fort Dodge, Iowa. He is a member of the Greater Growth Alliance. He is also an active member of the First Presbyterian Church in Fort Dodge, Iowa.

WHY I AM A DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC:
BECAUSE I honor the inborn potential of everyone to be truly healthy.
BECAUSE I desire to help the newborn, the aged, and those without hope.
BECAUSE I choose to care for the patient with the disease, not the disease.
BECAUSE I wish to assist rather that to intrude; to free rather than control.
BECAUSE I seek to correct the cause, not its effect.
BECAUSE I know doctors do not heal, only the body can heal itself.
BECAUSE I have been called to serve others.
BECAUSE I want to make a difference.
BECAUSE every day I get to witness miracles.
BECAUSE I KNOW IT IS RIGHT.
Dr. Zach lives in Fort Dodge with wife Emily, daughter Faith and son Beau.
